Awesome 8-string Aggression

For 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. Top it off with the fresh look of the Gothic crosses inlays and the deal is sealed: you've got an aggressive, tone-packed guitar with the Schecter Damien Elite-8.

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
  • Top-notch tuning stability from Grover Rotomatics
Hot tone from active EMG humbuckers

The Schecter Damien Elite-8 is fitted with two active EMG 808 humbucking pickups. When you're deploying a low F#-string, 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. Better still, these pickups are tapped, serving up pure Alnico single-coil spank and sparkle. It's this kind of tonal 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 enhance 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.

Top-notch tuning stability from Grover Rotomatics

You'll stay in tune when you play the Damien Elite-8, thanks to its Grover Rotomatics tuners with 18:1 gear ratio. That's a higher ratio than you normally find on stock tuners on guitars in this class, and allow for greater tuning accuracy and stability.
