Overview

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.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-8 Deluxe Eight-String Electric Guitar:

      I thought this model deserved a decent review for anyone looking into picking one up. I've had the guitar for about 6 months now and it is my first extended range guitar. I tried a few different 8 strings and ended up with this one so that says something. As with any new guitar you're going to be picking up some of your favorite brand strings. This is going to pose a bit of an issue. I found that I was unable to buy a set of off the shelf strings that I thought would work well with the instrument. The strings that the instrument comes with are entirely too small on the bass side. 75 on the bass side does not provide enough tension. I did find a company String Joy that made me a custom set 12-85 for a very reasonable price. As far as hardware is concerned its what you should expect from the companies least expensive 8 string. Its good enough to get by but not great. Pickups sound fine. The tuners were okay although I did have to drill out the F# and B tuners to fit the heavier gauge strings. Not really a big deal for me. The fixed bridge is fine. I was able to get the intonation as close to perfect as one can on an 8 string without fanned frets. The instrument plays great neck feels good. If you are looking to experience an 8 string on a budget this one has everything you need at a reasonable price. I'll be replacing the tuners and bridge with HipShot pretty soon but thats because it has become my primary guitar. Two big things to remember: if you want good strings they will be custom order and if you can bring your amp to try it out. The low sting is the same octave as the low E on a bass so your amp needs to be able to handle it without shaking itself to death. I recommend at LEAST a 12" speaker.
