Hey guys, I've done a bit of looking on the internet and couldn't come up with much.

How much would it cost ($AUD) for any of the Synyster Gates signature guitars? (The black standard/custom, and the white custom) I'm interested in getting one, and I got a new job yesterday (yay me!) so I'll be able to afford a new guitar soon.
#6
The Standard is $699US ($975AUD), and the Custom in Black is $999US ($1,400AUD) and the Custom in White is $1049US ($1,464AUD) from the American stores... and Billy Hyde wants $1,316AUD for the Standard and $1,880AUD for the Custom?

That's a massive joke, it's absolutely ridiculous. =[

I agree, that's why I buy off EBay/made my 3rd guitar. Plus, that Syn signature is ****ing disgusting!

tell u what... just bargain with them. calll up other stores and ask for the best price.. bounce back and forth until u reach the lowest.. that's what you have to do around in aus
#10
I would wait for the economy to be less volatile and wait, buy it from a decent ebay'er in US, but if your desperate for it now then that's the price you pay.... mwaahahahahahaa

I'm not that desperate, and I definitely don't want to pay that much for it. I might try eBay... the thing is, I was interested in the white one, and I haven't seen one on eBay, like, ever. Do any of the American stores ship overseas, like samedaymusic and ZZounds?

I could always tell the Australian music stores that 'oh, another store quoted me $1,500' and see what they say :p
#12
Seriously why would you want a guitar with somebody else's name on it

especially if they suck.

but yeah, ebay is your best bet if you can find one to ship overseas

I was waiting for a bunch of people to come in and say that. ^

Yes, I like A7X, I like Synyster Gates, and I think his guitar is the shit. Having his name on it... I used to think it'd be annoying, but now it doesn't really bother me. And I understand people are going to come in here who don't like Synyster/A7X and tell me they suck, but that's okay, everyone is entitled to their opinion. It's not like they're the only band I listen to, I'm sure I could find some common musical ground with anyone who comes in here and says they don't like him. ^_^

Have you looked into the C-1 Hellraiser? Much better value there...

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?
#16
Yeah, I've seen that... no trem, and I despise the paintjob on that guitar. I do like the body though. The headstock doesn't do much for me.
#17
I agree with the headstock, but the finish is sexy, the red. even I'd buy that for the finish and I hate those pointy metal contraptions

Hehe, fair enough.

I know what you're saying, but like... I've got a few guitars already, a couple of Epis (and they play ****ing unreal, so bite me all you Epi-haters) and some other ones, but this time around I want to buy a guitar that I really want, you know? Like, I don't want to settle for something similar because the one I want is hard to get or too expensive or something... if I'm going to spend some serious money on another guitar, I want to buy one that I really, really want, and not just settle for one, if that makes sense. Having said that, I don't want to spend $2,000 on a $1,500 guitar.

(and yes, anything over $1000 is serious money for me lol)
#19
It's your choice, just keep in mind that once A7X loses its popularity the value of the guitar will probably drop significantly...

Hehe, I'm getting a new amp anyway, so no worries there.


Use what you could've spent on a shitty Syn Custom (and it is shitty unless you have some serious amp power in something like Syn's Bogner Uberschall) and get the best amp you can. Rule number 1 of UG is that your amp should always cost more than your guitar lol (lulz aside it's for a good reason too.)

For 1k you could get a much better guitar.

A Synyster Custom model sounds like someone tied a schecter guitar to the back of a pickup truck on a rainy night and drove through the muddiest road they could possibly find.

Yes that bad.

So do yourself a favor. For 1k look into a real good ESP or Jackson. Unless your dead set on the Syn Custom and there's nothing I can do to persuade you. I can only tell you that I'll be having a massive lulz session when I tell you "I told you so".

I actually looked at a few Jacksons before I settled on this one, there were a few nice ones... what's so bad about the Syn Custom? I played a friends one a while back and loved it, that's why I was considering it... I know there's some good ESPs and Jacksons about, what do you think is so bad about the Syn model?
#25
billy hyde sell guitars at higher prices than any other store in australia, they are rip off artists

also if you want to purchase a guitar from america, apart from the crappy exchabge rate, anything over a grand attracts import duties and gst, so if the guitar costs 1400, plus 150 for shipping you have to pay another 200 - 300 ontop of that... roughly 1800ish...
