Interview: Synyster Gates, Avenged Sevenfold

As lead guitarist of Avenged Sevenfold, Synyster Gates is one of the top shredders in the metal world. With the popularity of his finger-twisting, mind-bending, high-octane fretwork that lays much of the foundation of the A7X sound, he’s now making his unmistakable tones available to the masses with Schecter through the Synyster Gates series of guitars and his new Hellwin amp—which made its recording debut on the band’s latest album, Hail to the King. We caught up with Syn during the band’s current tour and discussed his gear, his sound and what it’s like to create a signature line of gear while being in one of the biggest metal bands around.
