Lead guitarist of Huntington Beach, CA Hard Rock band Avenged Sevenfold. While he may be my personal favorite guitarist, I can honestly say as a fan he is NOT the best guitarist ever, but he is very good.
Actual name is Brian Elwin Haner
Jr, after his father who is also a known guitarist.
Is inspired by Slash, Dimebag Darrell, John Petrucci and others which can be seen in some of his work.
Is endorsed by Schecter
Guitar Research, along with rhythm guitarist Zacky Vengeance. Has released a signature guitar, the Synyster
Custom, and the Synyster Standard.
Synyster Gates is a popular modern day guitarist
who is trashed
upon by many jealous haters, when in actuality
he is actually a talented guitarist.
