Awesome 8-string Aggression

Are you into modern metal and rock? The Schecter Damien Elite-8 solidbody eight-string electric guitar can handle it. Just plug it into your favorite amp and listen to those active EMG pickups roar. Of course you'll have access to growling low-end fury, but the aggressive tonal response of the Damien Elite-8 across the entire fretboard. And the thru-body bridge gives you serious sustain. Add in Grover Rotomatic tuners, and you've got an axe that's both shred-ready and dependable. The extended-range guitarists here at Sweetwater really dig the Schecter Damien Elite-8. You will, too.

Schecter Damien Elite-8 Solidbody 8-string Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Hot tone from active EMG humbuckers
  • Ultra-strong maple neck with carbon fiber rods
  • TThis guitar looks amazing under stage lights
Hot tone from active EMG humbuckers

The Schecter Damien Elite-8 is fitted with two active EMG 808 humbucking pickups. When you're deploying low strings on an extended-range axe, there's no use even trying a passive pickup. Designed specifically for 8-string guitars, the 808 gives you the clearest, fattest low end you've ever felt from a guitar pickup, as well as the tonal dexterity you need for shredtastic lead work. It's this kind of sonic versatility that makes the Schecter Damien Elite-8 ideal for metal, fusion, and most any flavor of rock.

Ultra-strong maple neck with carbon fiber rods

The maple neck on the Damien Elite-8 adds a snappy sound to balance the richness of mahogany, and is enhanced with two carbon fiber rods parallel to the truss rod. Stronger than steel, these rods help prevent neck twisting, adding amazing stiffness but little weight. You'll be happy to know that this neck is also delightfully thin, and it plays fast and easy - like all Schecter guitar necks.

This guitar looks amazing under stage lights

No doubt about it - with its svelte contours and eye-popping flame maple top, the Schecter Damien Elite-8 looks killer. A class act, all the way. At Sweetwater, we're stone serious about sound, but not immune to a little stage vanity. Look at it this way: as you're hurling monstrous power chords at your audience, you might as well look good doing it. And with this axe, you do!
