Double NGD (but not for me)
« on: December 28, 2014, 05:16:12 PM »
My son's 22nd birthday yesterday, so he thought he would buy himself a present. He's a massive Avenged Sevenfold/Synyster Gates fan and decided he needed another Schecter Synyster Custom S (he already has a White one with black stripes and a black Custom with Silver stripes). S is for Sustainiac.



...and that would have been the end of the story. We'd had some difficulty getting one in time and had to cancel the original order. Just after we committed to buying one from another dealer the manager of the original dealer emailed to say they felt bad about letting us down and offering to sell us one hanging on his office wall. THE ONE SIGNED BY ALL THE BAND MEMBERS! It would have been rude to decline such a kind offer, so my credit card got whacked for another Schecter and a promise of repayment in the new year.



...and then of course I've got this terrible pain in all the diodes down my left hand side...

Not my style of guitar but they sure do look like quality pieces and perfect for your son.
Never had a sustainer so that it interesting and the fretboard inlays sure are something on the black one!
The other has signatures of his band so that is priceless, is it not?
You're a good dad!

Not my style of guitar either but perfect for the music he plays.

The Sustainiac does what it says on the tin. It's a lot of fun, especially the harmonic mode. Works as a pickup as well and sounds pretty good.
