A sinfully beautiful guitar with fiery pickups.
The Schecter Devil Custom sports wicked horns on its string-thru body that befit its namesake extremely well. We've all been warned about the beauty that evil is capable of, and the Devil Custom Electric Guitar makes good on that as well: a sculptured mahogany body with a solid burl maple top, plus an ebony fingerboard sporting a single Gothic eye inlay at the 12th fret are enough to make a devoted guitar player consider selling his or her soul.
Thankfully, you'll have to sacrifice little for this indulgence. It's amazing when you consider the guitar's comfortable 3-piece set-in mahogany neck and EMG Active 81/85 pickups, famed for their tone and impressive power. Grover tuners and a TonePros bridge combine with the string thru construction to provide wickedly good sustain.

This was my first brand new guitar and I've had it for about a week now. I have not been able to put it down, I got the blood red burst color. The neck is amazing and the EMG's make it sound incredible. This is by far the best guitar I've owned and is worth every penny.
Schecter really did an amazing job with this guitar. The active EMG 81/85 setup puts out awesome sound. The set neck is fast and smooth. The gothic eye inlay at the 12th fret gives it that evil look, while the amberburst or blood red finish keeps it looking beutiful. I sold a C-1 XXX for a down payment on this guitar, and I made a great choice, by far the best guitar I own, and have owned.
The Schecter Devil Custom is a monster of an instrument. I've had mine for about five months and I love it. You've gotta remember to change the battery on occasion, but despite this, I love the active pickups.The neck is fat, kinda like a Les Paul, and the frets are tall and smooth. The weight distribution is excellent, and the pain job is just fantastic.This is a guitar worth getting, I never thought much of Schecter guitars (because I had never used one) until I blindly bought this beast. Now I'm planning to get the Sunset FR in addition to this one. It's great!
I have owned this guitar for about three months now, and I never put it down. My Ibanez IC400 has nothing compared to this weapon. The Emgs are amazing and I never played active emgs before. Now they are my favorite. It has great fast neck and the frets are easy to play anything on. I recieved the bloodred burst and the finish is flawless. The grover tuners are good, I've tuned it twice since I got it. The mohogany body isn't very heavy, but the body shape is devilish. If you like to shred, and don't want to pay the (Gibson) price, buy this guitar soon.
Wow, I stood for a good 5 to 10 minutes in the store just admiring the finish on this thing! Then I picked it up and fingertapped a little bit on the neck, it was butter smooth. Then the evil, evil salesman came over and asked if I wanted to plug it in and I foolishly said yes... 10 seconds later I was shopping for a bag to go with it! The tone and sustain are unbelievable in a guitar of this price range and the neck is a joy to play both in comfort and speed. If you're considering this guitar, do yourself a favor and stop considering and BUY it already!
the neck is fat string thru body not my thing im into more of the floyd roses type of person my friend has it and is trying to convince me its the best guitar evr but its just another shecter not a fan would not recommend to metal players but to more rock players than anyone else
I usually don't play Schter from a few bad experiences with some of thier instruments but this beauty redefined my opinion. The body isn't too heavy and it's kind of small which is cool. Very simple set up and fast neck. This guitar has basically everything you need in a guitar from the wood to the hardware. I would prefer TW pickups but the ones in the thing are great. The finish is stunning and on a wall of 200 guitars is really stands out. I'm not really a fan of the headstock though, just a personal thing. This is a beautiful beast of a guitar. Try it then buy it.
I went through a music store, playing almost every guitar I could find, seeing if anything would jump out at me. I'd never seen or heard of the Devil before, but it immediately caught my attention. Looks nice. Feels good. Sounds sweet. I experimented with both pickups, tried playing everything from blues to death metal, and thing just blew my mind. The mahogany body, the ebony fretboard, the EMG pickups, the string-through design, all for around $700. If you're in the market for something versatile and high-quality at that price range, check thing thing out. Don't let name-brand prejudice fool you, play it for yourself.
For me, it was between the Devil Custom and a PRS Singlecut. I played both extensively, and for some reason, the Devil just called my name.Initially, I was afraid that the active 81/85 pickups would be too hot and metal-ey for some of the jazz or rock stuff I do, but these pickups reign in very nicely. They don't feedback and have a really versatile tonal spectrum.I dig the string through body. I'm not really one for Floyd Roses or other trem systems, so I appreciate a guitar that stays in tune. To that end, the only thing I've been dissatisfied with is the tuners. They stay pretty well, but they slip occasionally. I might swap for some Sperzel locking tuners, but it's just a really minor thing. I really dig the volume and tone knobs. They glide very easily for quick pinkie volume swells or muting.This guitar is very light and the body pretty small, which is nice for long gigs. The neck is a bit on the thick side, but it's nothing like a P bass neck. There's enough neck there for you to feel like you actually have something to hold onto.VERY nice guitar. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a tonally versatile guitar that has some visual edge to it. I've been extremely impressed with all of the Schecter guitar I've tried.
Just got this guitar recently and it's a great guitar. The pickups have a nice powerful tone the action is perfect right out of the box. The Gothic eye inlay,body, and headstock look BA and the neck is very comfortable. Awesome guitar for an awesome price.
