      Schecter Guitar Research

      A limited-edition 8-string guitar with drop dead looks, EMG Active pickups, and a long scale length.

      The 8-string Schecter Hellraiser C-8 electric guitar has a gorgeous quilted maple top, a double cutaway mahogany body, 3-piece set mahogany neck, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. The Hellraiser C-8 has a long 26-1/2" scale length to accommodate the lower tuning of the added F# and B strings. The guitar's Hipshot 8 fixed bridge provides maximum stability and sustain.

      Schecter loads the 8-string Hellraiser guitar with a pair of EMG-808 active humbucker pickups featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils that beef tones from the Low strings while providing a more responsive, super tight overall sound. The extended scale C-8 is reinforced with dual graphite rods for tuning and neck stability. Appointments include gothic cross inlays, abalone body binding, and black chrome hardware. Only 100 Hellraider C-8 guitars will be available in the USA.

      Case sold separately.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-8 Electric Guitar:

        Amazing! Iv never owned an 8 string before but man this is good. I play both hard rock and clean and this can do both so well. the clean sounds like a gibson or prs with amazing depth and sustain. the lower strings can even double as a bass. Once you kick in the distortion it turns in to a rock machine! When it came in the box, the only things wrong with it were one of the volume knobs was a little wobbly ( it comes with an alan wrench so you can easily fix that in less that 5 seconds) and there was a little fret buzz on the lowest string, because a .74 gauge is too small for a 26.5" scale..so just buy a .80 from D'ddario and youre set! I tune to F,C,F,Bb,Eb,Ab,C,F...but it can easily hand drop E and F# standard too. All in all this is one of the best 8 string guitars I have ever heard, and its close to 1000-2000 dolores cheaper than most custom models. So get at it and buy one!

        Very Well Rounded

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-8 Electric Guitar:

        This is the first eight string I have ever played, and I am confident it will be the best. Fits, Feels, and Sounds like a fine tuned machine! Clean; warm, and beautiful sounding range of tones, with piano like sustain. Disortion; Fat, and punchy, with growl, and great heavy sound. Comfortable in all areas of the neck. Not to mention the way she looks. Even in such low tuning ( I drop tune, while a half step down) C#,G#,C#,G#,C# Etc. I am extremely happy with this guitar, and I believe anyone who plays it will say the same.
