Overview

An affordable entry into the world of 8 strings.

The Schecter C-8 Deluxe Eight-String Electric Guitar is here to make it affordable to enter the world of 8 strings. It features a basswood body with a bolt-on maple neck that heavily reinforced. The rosewood fingerboard had a flatter, 16" radius with 24 frets and dot inlays to make fingering as easy as posible. Schecter Diamond pickups are designed to handle the extended range of this C-8. A tune-o-matic bridge with string-thru body loading improves sustain while keeping intonation tight. Case sold separately.
