What we say:
Since 1976, Schecter guitars have carved a unique and highly revered path through the world of original guitar design. No mere copyists, Schecter are known for some truly outlandish designs but are equally well known for their high quality control and rock 'n' roll attitude. For those players who are a little wearied with the usual models on offer, dive into the world of Schecter guitars and discover a treasure trove of original thinking mixed with some of the best hardware and construction available. Their designs fit every pocket, too: A-list rock stare go out on stage with these guitars and so can you.
Schecter’s Hellraiser collection brings together a large selection of guitar shapes and decks them out with active EMG pickups and Gothic looking cross inlays to really sell an atmospheric look to match the, quite frankly, stupendously heavy sounds that can come out of these beasts!
In case 7 strings aren't enough for you, Schecter oblige you with another to truly soak in those subterranean frequencies. Follow in the footsteps of Meshuggah and the Deftones by utilising an extended 26.5" scale length to go lower and lower into the sonic abyss. This Schecter Hellraiser C-8's EMG-808 active pickups will ensure tight response from your low F# note: no sludginess in tone here unless you do it of purpose with a bunch of fuzz pedals!
The nut and hipshot bridge have been especially designed to hold tension on these low notes so you'll always enjoy a good set up. Abalone crosses pray for the immortal souls of your riffs as they descend into 8 string hell.
It's definitely true that 8 string guitars take a little getting used to but you may surprise yourself at how quickly you take to it! It opens up your playing in all directions, not just low-end riffing.
