Awesome 8-string Aggression

For modern metal and rock, the Schecter Damien Platinum 8 eight-string solidbody 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 Platinum 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 deal is sealed: you've got an aggressive, tone-packed guitar with the Schecter Damien Platinum 8.

Schecter Damien Platinum 8 Left-handed Eight-string Solidbody 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 Platinum 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 Platinum 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 Platinum 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 Platinum 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.

  • An 8-string you'll want to rock with
  • Ultra Access cutaway gives you easy access to the upper frets
  • Long 28" scale maintains a higher tension on lower strings for tighter sound
