8-string Guitar with a Floyd

With the Schecter Hellraiser C-8 FR solidbody 8-string electric guitar, you get options. Put up a wall of sound with huge, thick chords; launch runs that start really low; play bass lines; discover new chord voicings; the possibilities are endless. With its 3-piece mahogany neck, set-neck construction, locking tuners, Floyd Rose tremolo, and tappable EMG active humbuckers, this axe is built for hard-core front-line duty. The Hellraiser C-8 FR doesn't feel like a 7-string with an extra string. It's an amazingly playable instrument unto itself. Considering an 8-string? Check out the Schecter Hellraiser C-8 FR.

8-string beef

8-string guitars are a breed apart. The Schecter Hellraiser C-8 FR solidbody guitar sports a 28" scale that keeps your low F# sounding nice and tight; this also imparts a unique sound to the rest of the instrument. Schecter's 8-string design and construction techniques (3-piece neck, Floyd Rose tremolo, and locking tuners) all contribute to the Hellraiser C-8 FR's unique, authoritative, eminently musical voice.

EMG 808 humbuckers onboard

The Schecter Hellraiser C-8 FR is fitted with two active EMG 808 humbucking pickups. If you're deploying a low F# string, then there's no use in 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 pups are tapped, serving up pure Alnico single-coil spank and sparkle. It's this kind of tonal versatility that makes the Schecter Hellraiser C-8 FR ideal for metal, fusion, and most any flavor of rock.

Looks great onstage

No doubt about it, with its abalone body binding and Gothic cross fretboard inlays, the Schecter Hellraiser C-8 FR solidbody 8-string guitar looks killer. A class act all the way. At Sweetwater, we're stone serious about sound... but we're 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.
