Schecter Hellraiser C-8 Special



The 8-string Schecter Hellraiser Special C-8 electric guitar has the same gorgeous quilted maple top, double cutaway mahogany body, 3-piece set mahogany neck, and 24-fret rosewood fingerboard as the regular Hellraiser C-8, but without the abalone binding and locking tuners.

The Hellraiser Special C-8 has a long 26-1/2" scale length to accommodate the lower tuning of the added F# and B strings. The guitar's Schecter Custom-8 fixed bridge provides maximum stability and sustain. 

Schecter loads the 8-string Hellraiser Special guitar with a pair of EMG-808 active humbucker pickups featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils that beef tones from the Low B string while providing a more responsive, super tight overall sound. The extended scale C-8 is reinforced with dual graphite rods for tuning and neck stability. Appointments include pearloid dagger inlays and black chrome hardware. Case sold separately.
