Schecter Guitars announced the release of the Synyster Gates Custom-S, a guitar that has been in the works for several years. The guitar will be available in January 2012. This new Synyster Gates guitar features all the specs used on his signature model plus something special that has called his "secret weapon” -- the Sustainiac. This unique system resides in place of the neck humbucker (See photos below) and provides controlled feedback-sustain at all levels.
Bernie Corrigan, the marketing manager for Schecter Guitars in Burbank, California, died August 18 in an auto accident. He was 39. A fund has been set up for Corrigan -- the Bernie Corrigan Memorial Fund -- in order to financially assist his family.
