Like most of Schecter's electric guitars, the C-8 Multiscale Silver Mountain model is built for modern musicians seeking powerful tones, comfortable playability, killer aesthetics and an extended range.
Premium Electronics & Hardware
Fitted with a pair of Schecter USA Sonic Seducer humbuckers, these potent pickups can handle copious amounts of gain without breaking a sweat. But they're not one-trick ponies, as these humbuckers clean up beautifully via the push/pull tone control which can split their coils.
Other highlights include Schecter-branded locking tuners, a reliable graphite nut and a smoothly-machined Hipshot Hardtail bridge, which all ensure excellent tuning stability.
Modern Multiscale Design
The biggest feature of this guitar is its multi-scale design, with ergonomic 'fanned' frets that follow the shape of the hand more naturally; improving playability.
The biggest advantage of a multi-scale neck, especially on an extended range guitar like the C-8, is that the string tension will be higher on the low strings to give you a fast picking response with practically no flabbiness. Intonation is also vastly benefited, with notes sounding more in-tune across the fingerboard.
