Contest: Win a Signed Synyster Gates Custom Guitar from Schecter

The Seymour Duncan Invader has a well-earned reputation as the most aggressive passive pickup ever.

It's the first choice for metal, punk and rock players who seek maximum power and sustain without switching over to a battery-powered active system.

Now this high-gain classic gets a visual makeover inspired by longtime Invader user Synyster Gates of Avenged Sevenfold. Synyster Gates Invaders sport eye-catching chrome-plated pole pieces in place of the original black ones. They are also offered with gold and white pole pieces.

Synyster Gates Invaders are available in a Trembucker-spaced bridge version and a standard-spaced neck version. They're the same ones used in Schecter Guitar Research's Special Edition Synyster Custom model. Neck and bridge pickups are sold individually and as a set.

Synyster Gates Invaders have all the amp-pummeling power of the original Invader, thanks to their triple ceramic magnets, overwound coils, and the extra-wide magnetic field generated by 12 oversized cap screws. Non-active pickups simply don't get more powerful than this — they're passive and massive.

To help celebrate the launch of this pickup we have teamed up with Schecter Guitars to launch the Summer of Syn Giveaway. Here is your chance to win a signed Synyster Gates Custom Guitar from Schecter featuring the Seymour Duncan Synyster Gates Invader.
