Tuners - Schecter Locking
Schecter Locking Tuners feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable knobs, threaded peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peg hole.
Finger Board - Ebony
Ebony has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of Maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than Maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long, sustain.
Pickups - Seymour Duncan Blackouts 8-string AHB-1
9-volt active pickups, like its predecessors: the 6-string and 7-string versions of the Blackouts, but built to direct retrofit nearly all 8-string electric guitars. Perfect for old school metal and new school screamers, especially dark pounding metal that incorporates extreme lows. Balanced inputs with a differential preamp for reduced noise. Ceramic magnets and calibrated wind for both neck and bridge versions provide for greater dynamic range and allow for specific character in each register.
Neck - 3-pc Mahogany w/Carbon Fiber Rods
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. Where standard necks may show aging defects throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will remain straight for a lifetime of playability. Two Carbon Fiber Rods are installed next to the Truss Rod for extra stability. Stronger than an equivalent volume of steel, Carbon Fiber can supplement an adjustable truss rod to help prevent neck twisting. Carbon Fiber adds little weight, but adds significant stiffness.
Bridge - Hipshot Custom-8
Hipshot Custom-8 bridge was custom designed by Schecter with a smaller F# & B saddles and offset string thru location on F#/B/E for optimum Intonation. STAINLESS STEEL saddles. Experience brighter highs, more resonant lows.
