I was thinking of buying one, but the cheapest i could find is $999. I know this is pretty cheap considered that most people who play it say it should be $1500, but i was just wondering if anyone knows anywhere that's selling them for any cheaper than that?
Here's a link if you need to know what it looks like.

the custom is $999 but you can get the standard for $699 i believe.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

thanks, but i heard that the custom has a better sound quality. is it worth it?

neither of them are worth it IMO. for $1000 i'd get a used sg standard, but thats just me. there's much to be had with a price range like that, take another look around. if you're after that shape check out the hellraiser avenger, unless you're after a floyd then take a look at the c-1 series.

idk how long it would take me to save up $1000, seeing as i don't have a job, and im only 15, so considering those circumstances, you guys think i should i get the custom or standard?

neither. get your self a nice mid range guitar like an ibanez or an ltd or something. what genres are you planning on playing and what features are you looking for ?

I'm in the same boat as you... I'm saving that bit extra for the white custom. The Original FR and the Invaders do it for me. ^_^

the only hellraiser avenger with a floyd rose is a prototype. they are not available to the general public.

I know, i'm just letting the ts know that, because if he wants a synyster custom it's safe to assume he wants a guitar with a trem.

That was the original question, if anyone knows where they're being sold cheaper... how come everyone is answering with 'get an Ibanez/ESP/SG/whatever'?

I thought that syn used HB-108 which are based on the invaders but not actual invaders.....

Because for that price range you can get a much better guitar from those company's

Why spend so much for someone else's guitar?


Because Syn is one of my idols and having his guitar would show it. Plus i love A7X.

That's what i was thinking... I don't want any other brand. I want a schecter synyster custom/standard. whichever for cheaper than their net price. Does anyone know a site to get it at?

guitar center sells one that is like 699. the only diff is the pickups i think
#21
The Standard is usually $699, the Custom $999 (In black, an extra $50 for the white one). The Custom has Invader pickups and an Original Floyd Rose, the Standard has Duncan Designed pickups and a licensed Floyd Rose. The custom has coil taps, not sure if the standard does or if it doesn't.

Look on eBay too, last time I looked there was a few on there. There was a perfect condition used Custom for about $400US the other day with about an hour to go, I don't know how much it went for.
#22
Just bought a new black Custom on eBay Australia for $1130AUD, with a case included... Merry Christmas to me ^_^
#23
you should get the custom one.
better pick-ups are worth it.
I think the 999 price tag is the cheapest for the custom though.
