OVERVIEW

Neck-through construction, ebony fingerboard and USA SuperCharger pickups.

The Banshee Elite-8 Eight-String from Schecter Guitar Research exudes quality construction, optimally chosen USA Schecter pickups, and visual flare comparable to few.

The Banshee Elite Series features a swamp ash body with a flamed maple top, nine-piece maple/walnut neck with an ebony fingerboard, 24 X-Jumbo stainless steel frets, mother-of-pearl offset/reverse dot inlays with brass circles, and a neck-thru construction with ultra access for seamless playability and easy access to the higher frets. The Banshee Elite is offered in 6-, 7-, and 8-string options and also offers the choice of a Hipshot Hardtail Bridge, or the Schecter Exclusive Floyd Rose 1500 Series bridge which features stainless steel parts, new push-in arm, and knife points that are re-tooled for better tuning and smoother tremolo play.

One of the coolest features is that the Banshee Elite comes loaded with Schecter's own handmade USA SuperCharger pickups with an option of a Sustainiac in the neck position (Sustainiac offered only in 6- and 7-string models). The Banshee Elite is a guitar that truly plays itself, and offers remarkable versatility and tone that players relish.
