Product Description for the Schecter Damien Elite 8 Trans Black Burst
Mahogany Body, Flamed Maple Top
Schecter's Damien Elite-8 is a well-balanced guitar from aggressive crunchy sounds to rich, clean tones, perfect for the modern day player. The body's arched top contour provides a great resonance, enhancing the natural tones of the body wood, whilst the natural beauty of the Flamed Maple provides a great look. The Mahogany body offers naturally warm tones, with a touch of bite for creating tights lows and appealing highs.
Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard
The 3-piece Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard has been designed with a thin "C" shape for a smooth, fast play. The Maple/Rosewood combination produces warm, soft tones with sparkling highs and thick lows. It also comes with many other features.
It has 2 EMG active pickups, producing rich, full bodied tones and a great organic sound. At both the bridge and neck are 808 EMG humbuckers that deliver incredible tones, presence, and dynamics that an 8 string guitar requires. Featuring alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils, the humbuckers eliminates muddy bottom strings whilst offering a tight, responsive sound. The EMG articulates every note the strings may produce, providing an incredibly well-balanced tone with an excellent upper register.
