About Schecter Synyster Gates

Schecter’s Synyster Gates signature has been one of their most popular guitars. Gates, lead guitarist for Californian metallers Avenged Sevenfold.

There have been a few variations of Gates’ signature Avenger guitar over the years (he is a long time player of Schecter guitars) including models with a Sustainiac system built in and others with different combinations of pickups and finishes.

Frequently Asked Questions about Schecter Synyster Gates

Question: What is the difference between the Schecter Hellraiser and the Hellraiser Hybrid ranges?
The Hellraiser Hybrid range is a mix of Hellraiser and SLS features. Essentially a Hellraiser Hybrid is a Hellraiser guitar with the slim neck profile and side dots of an SLS guitar and some very cool looking Carbon Fibre binding.
Question: Can I get an 8 string Hellraiser guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo?
Yes indeed you can! There aren't many 8 string guitars out there with a Floyd Rose tremolo so this is rather special. Just look for the Schecter C-8 FR model.
Question: What is different about the Hellraiser Passive range?
The difference is in the pickup models. The Hellraiser range has active pickups whereas the Hellraiser Passive range has a set of Schecter's USA made Brimstone passive pickups. Finishes between the two ranges may vary but apart form that, the two ranges are the same.
