    Is this Original Synyster Schecter?

    Hello! It appears to be a 2015 model with Two humbuckers and a 24th fret inlay. I have the Custom S modal from 2015 and this matches it perfectly. It is definitely real and not a knock off. It's just the version without the sustaniac.

    How to train little finger?

    Just use your pinky individually and practice along with backing tracks using only your pinky. It will take time but not too long. Then work on integration.

    Techniques that resulted in instant improvement for you?

    Practice with heavy strings. No argument. They force your fingers to get stronger and pick more accurately. They are easier to sweep and do legato on as there is very little slinkyness. 10-52 is a great place to start.

    Unholy confessions

    Yes. Just slow the song down and put headphones on. Find Isolated tracks on YouTube and LISTEN to them till you are sick of it. Then you play along with it. Go slow and don't worry about tempo till you get the fingering down. : ) this will help you.

    Guitar If you could give just 1 pro tip regarding guitar/practicing, what would it be?

    Stretching your hands and keeping them warm. It is VERY difficult to get gains and play fast in the winter.

    Schecter Syn Custom NT

    That's the model from the Making the Self Titled album. You can also see it (Or an Alt model hard tale) In the Burn Halo - Dirty Little Girl music video during his solo. If I remember correctly He uses this exact model in the beginning of the Making of Hail To The King video. But otherwise that...

    Remember to stretch thoroughly before your gig. Drink lots of caffeine and energy drinks prior to the gig to get the jitters out. Also, treat the gig like a big practice session and be extroverted to not worry about mistakes : ) Good luck and Merry Christmas : )

    10-52 is the way to go. It is the best for being able to bend but also they are not very floppy allowing you to solo with scales and sweeping very easily. Hope this helps : )
