He uses Johnny Christ as a decoy. During the Glasgow show it seemed as though Synyster Gates had a slight guitar malfunction which rendered it unusable during the last few seconds of the “Almost Easy.” M Shadows caught wind of it and fun on stage ensued. Check out a video of the event below:

Thanks to Angie who was at the show for sending this in.

Haha, Syns face was like “oh shit” when the guitar bombed out. That’s why it’s always helpful to have a unoccupied short bassist on hand! XD
