When six or seven strings won't suffice, reach for the Schecter C-8 MS Silver Mountain. This 8-string extended range guitar is geared for high output metal, but is formidable regardless of genre. The mahogany body pairs with a 3-piece mahogany neck that's reinforced with carbon fiber. The profile is a thin C-shape; the ebony fretboard has a 27–25.5" multi scale with long lasting stainless steel frets. An ultra-access neck heel puts every fret within reach.

The C-8 MS is loaded with Schecter USA Sonic Seducer humbuckers. Made with ceramic magnets, they're hotter than alnicos and have earth-quaking output. That doesn't come at a cost to clarity, though. The Seducers deliver broad spectrum tones. If you're in a single-coil mood, just activate the push/pull tone pot for a coil split.

An 8-string guitar demands solid hardware, and this Schecter doesn't skimp. It comes with a blacked out Hipshot multi-scale bridge and locking tuners. Other features include Luminlay side-dot markers, graphite nut and 1-ply body binding.
