The Avenger is a unique guitar design you'll only find with Schecter. The offset body and wide cutaways are as striking as its sound, and the shape serves as the foundation to the Synyster Gates signature model - meaning only one thing: it churns out some serious metal heat.
Schecter have served up an impressive list of woods and hardware with the Apocalypse series Avenger. The body is made of a luxurious swamp ash, set in with a maple neck and topped with a dark ebony fretboard.
Everything here on in is curated for the modern guitarist. You'll find playing a breeze thanks to a thin “C” neck shape compound 12-16 inch radius fingerboard, getting flatter as you move up the 24 extra jumbo stainless steel frets – which will last you years of seamless vibrato and bends. You've also got the ever-popular Luminlay glow-in-the-dark side dots to guide the way.
The Floyd Rose 1500 floating bridge is as reliable as they come for flutters and divebombs, while the high-end Hipshot knobs and Grover tuners provide unwavering consistency in all departments.
Equipped on the Avenger is an in-house made Schecter USA Apocalypse-VI serving up the hot humbucking crunch, ideally suited to classic metal styles. In the neck position you'll find the Sustainiac to handle lead lines and ambient styles with aplomb.
