Schecter Damien Platinum 8 8-string Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Hot tone from active EMG humbuckers
- Ultra-strong maple neck with carbon fiber rods
- Top-notch tuning stability from Grover Rotomatics
Hot tone from active EMG humbuckers
The Schecter Damien Platinum 8 is fitted with two active EMG 808 humbucking pickups. When you're deploying a low F#-string, there's no use even trying a passive pickup. Designed specifically for 8-string guitars, the EMG 808 gives you the clearest, fattest low end you've ever felt from a guitar pickup. Better still, these pickups are tapped, serving up pure alnico single-coil spank and sparkle. It's this kind of tonal versatility that makes the Schecter Damien Platinum 8 ideal for metal, fusion, and most any flavor of rock.
Ultra-strong maple neck with carbon fiber rods
The maple neck on the Damien Platinum 8 adds a snappy sound to balance the richness of mahogany, and it is enhanced with two carbon fiber rods parallel to the truss rod. Stronger than steel, these rods help prevent neck twisting, adding amazing stiffness but little weight.
Top-notch tuning stability from Grover Rotomatics
You'll stay in tune when you play the Damien Platinum 8, thanks to its Grover Rotomatics tuners and 18:1 gear ratio. That's a higher ratio than you normally find on stock tuners for guitars in this class, and it allows for greater tuning accuracy and stability.
