EMG active pickups and long scale length at a breakthrough price.
The 8-string Schecter Hellraiser Special C-8 electric guitar has the same gorgeous quilted maple top, double cutaway mahogany body, 3-piece set mahogany neck, and 24-fret rosewood fingerboard as the regular Hellraiser C-8, but without the abalone binding and locking tuners.
The Hellraiser Special 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 Schecter Custom-8 fixed bridge provides maximum stability and sustain.
Schecter loads the 8-string Hellraiser Special guitar with a pair of EMG-808 active humbucker pickups featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils that beef tones from the Low B string 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 pearloid dagger inlays and black chrome hardware. Case sold separately.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Special C-8 Electric Guitar:
Received from Musician's Friend in 9 days,a month before expected & in perfect condition.This guitar (Schecter Hellraiser Special C-8,see-thru-black)inspires a multitude of new possibilities.I tuned mine down one whole step to E instead of F# & it sounds great.It seems as if I'm playing a hybrid bass/guitar mix.While chords are not well defined in the lowest positions,the riffing possibilities are endless.The growl & tone is both clear & musical.While playing lead is not at all difficult, it does take a little time to get use to the extended range & positioning.I run this guitar through a Line 6 Spider Jam & straight into my recorder & it sounds great!Very tight & aggressive.The guitar itself is gorgeous;very expensive looking while retaining the heavy/cool look metal players want.The dagger inlays are very cool without being obnoxious & easy to position by.No visible imperfections.Fit,feel,set-up,finish & sound all excellent.Should cost more.I absolutely recommend this guitar for anyone looking to bring something new to the table!
