    So the title is pretty self explanatory. I've been playing for maybe a year and a half and own two guitars. Both have fret inlays in the obvious spots. Now, I'm looking at a used Schecter Apocalypse with a Floyd Rose system, sustainiac, pretty much everything I can do to get the Synyster Gates tone without buying the actual thing. The one thing making me hesitant to pull the trigger is a lack of fret inlays. Does anybody here own a guitar with a naked fretboard? All responses are appreciated, thanks guys!

    Not really, because the guitar still has side markers. When you’re playing, you’re looking down at the side of the neck, and there’s markers there

    Like everyone is saying, its really not harder, because you have the side inlays still. My snow falcon has no inlays, but has the side markers, so it really doesnt affect anything.

    My question for you is, if you’re gonna shell out the money for an apocalypse with sustainiac and a floyd, why not just buy a syn custom? theyre in the same ballpark of price, do you just not want the look of the syn custom? Im just curious brother!

    Its all good, the reason I'm looking at the apocalypse is that it's used and the guy is looking for around 800, whereas the best deal I can find on a Syn custom with the sustainiac and floyd is more in the 1000 dollar range. If I could find a Syn custom for the same price I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    Have you checked reverb?

    This was just a quick search but i found this one for around the ballpark and they’re open to offers!

    I should have gone to reverb way sooner, I found a tobacco burst syn signature with all the good stuff (synbucker, sustainiac, floyd, neck thru) for only 899! And it's in perfect condition. Thanks for the advice, I think I know what guitar I'm buying now...
