Cheap Schecter Elite 8 on ebay

Just was browsing and thought I would give a heads up to anyone looking to buy one of these. Likely $100 cheaper than buying through anywhere else

Schecter Damien Elite 8 Electric Guitar with EMG 808 - eBay (item 300414636933 end time Apr-12-10 08:50:42 PDT)

Free shipping worldwide? I might just get it instead of an RGA8.

EDIT: How different is it from the RGA8?

I know the neck is a bit thicker, and the scale is 1/2 inch different. I wasnt happy with the feel of the shorter scale on my old schecter 8, but that was just me. Either way it looks like a nice affordable option.

Indeed it does, especially for someone with little money and talent like me. One thing I noticed was that the heel on the back of the neck looks so big. Does that hinder soloing on the high frets at all?

bought the schecter damien elite 8 about 3 months ago and turns out not to be that bad. if you go from a six to an 8 it seems to be a little diffucult a first. try using a seven for a while then give it a shot.

its not all that bad but at some points you can feel your hand stretch little more than it's suppose to. ive played the ibanez rg2228 and the neck on it is terrific. I heard the rg8 is has that same feel. Cheaper than the bull.... rg2228. Good guitar but overpriced. Dont go with the schecter 8. Very uneasy feel to it. Go with the ibanez or the agile intrepid.

you're name is schecterelite8 and you're not recommending it??

I'm perfectly happy with the elite 8's neck, other than the fact it's a bolt on

Hot Auction/Craigslist/Find Thread (ERGs Only!)

Seeing as how ERG are gaining popularity and there are now quite a few available online and on Craigslist I've decided that ERG followers require their own thread.

So please post in here all the eBay/Craigslist/Steals whatever/wherever you can find them.

Agile Septor 828MN NAT ASH In DFW, TX. I'd buy it but I can't afford it right now. Hopefully one of you local cat's will see it and hop on it. I double checked with the dude, it's the exact guitar in the Rondo link he posted. Good luck!

Keep in mind that custom prices add at least 50% to the base price so if you wanted to order that same guitar it would cost over $1500.

I thought the difference between the normal and pro models was a bolt-on neck versus a neck-through-body, in which case the guitar in question would not be a pro. If it were a custom, it would have cost around $1k to $1.1k, not $1.5k....

Your maths is wrong, even if we wanted to pretend this was based on a standard Interceptor 827 model it would put it at a minimum of $1200+ for just a slight cosmetic change

Rondo Music Custom Order Guitars

Quote:
In general, you can assume minor modifications to existing models will add over 50% to the price of the item. For example, ordering a custom AL-3000 and changing just one attribute from the standard model, say the color, would cost over $585.00
However this is not a slight cosmetic change to a Interceptor 827, it has upgraded pups and a matching mahogany veneer on the headstock. So we can either assume that the price was based on a Pro model with a bolt on neck which according to the custom pricing info would have started at $1500 or it was based on the standard model and the price would have started at $1200 + EMG's + mahogany veneer on headstock which would work out at $1450+

You can argue the price is too expensive but it's Rondo who has set those custom prices. Either way that listing has finished now.
