    Review/life story first then pics.

    I've owned two other 8 strings, an agile intrepid that I bought in 2010 and had for a year and a half and a carvin Dc800 purchased in 2012 that I had for about a year. I wasn't sure if I'd have much use for 8s anymore but I've been playing in a band for about 2 and a half years now. We've got a few songs written in 8 string tuning territory that I've been doing on a 7 but I decided to shop around for an 8 for future writing purposes.


    Behold, a Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid in UV finish! Notable specs:
    slimline SLS neck profile w/ satin finish - thinner that I thought it would be which is great! I don't really mind slightly thicker necks on 6s but 7s & 8s i like it thin. I haven't had a satin neck guitar in a long time and I'm glad this one has it. Its lovely.
    EMG 57/66 set - really digging these. they play nice with my eleven rack as well as my laney ironheart. between these and the het set in my snakebyte I got last year, my faith in EMGs has been restored.
    carbon fiber binding - looks pretty snazzy and im looking forward to seeing how the glow in the dark side dots perform.
    Schecter locking tuners - I loved the schecter locking tuners that were on a previously owned blackjack c-7 and these are just as nice.
    Hipshot 8 flat mount bridge - I prefer TOMs and i think they make 8 string TOMS now(?) but this bridge is quite comfortable.

    The axe is pretty lightweight and there isn't any neck dive! its a very comfortable guitar to play and the finish is beautiful. Schecter seriously got it right with this one.

    The cat approves.

    It was cloudy here but you can still kinda see the color changes.

    Love the carbon fiber binding. The clear over the binding is just a little sloppy but I don't notice it while playing.

    Loving the headstock and the tuners.

    Finally the sun comes out so I can capture the finish.

    whoa that looks super nice!
    I've yet to play an 8-string Schecter but the 7's I've played have been great.
    congrats :)

    That looks super cool.

    I still reckon Schecter's neck joint is one of the best ones out there. Comfy af.

    The scale length on that is making me want one as a viable backup to my Oni. I'd want to swap the pickups probably. But that's not a huge deal.

    Man, I really want to purchase a babe like this. Would you mind telling us where you bought it? Do you have any video playing with her?
