A trailblazing multiscale electric guitar built for blazing leads and mammoth riffs.

Designed for the modern metal shredder, the Schecter PT-8 MS Black Ops electric guitar packs innovative multiscale design and cutting-edge Fishman Fluence pickups into a sleek, rock-ready package. Its 25.5" to 27.5" fanned fingerboard creates varied string tension across the neck for improved intonation and effortless bends, while the thin, ergonomic C-shaped ebony fingerboard enables fast lead runs. With the Fishman Fluence Modern humbuckers, you get three distinct voicings to sculpt your tone - from fat, saturated distortion to glassy cleans and everything in between. The lightweight mahogany body resonates with sustain and is reinforced with carbon fiber for rock-solid stability. With its blacked-out esthetic, satin finish and sculpted cutaways, this Schecter multiscale guitar looks as sinister as it sounds.

Unique Multiscale Design Enhances Playability and Intonation

The PT-8 MS Black Ops features a 25.5" to 27.5" multiscale fingerboard, engineered for improved playability across the neck. The fanned frets create an ergonomic scale length for each string, reducing tension on the lower strings while increasing tension on the higher strings for optimized intonation. This allows effortless string bending anywhere on the neck and makes it easier to play complex chords. The multiscale layout is a game changer, letting you play with precision, speed and articulation.

Three Versatile Voicings With Fishman Fluence Pickups

Equipped with Fishman's Fluence Modern humbuckers, the PT-8 MS delivers three distinct voicings to sculpt your tone. Engage the Modern setting for fat, saturated distortion - perfect for djent and modern metal. Flip to Classic mode for organic, vintage-inspired warmth reminiscent of '60s humbuckers. Single Coil voice unleashes glassy cleans and crystalline articulation. With the master volume and 3-way toggle switch, it's easy to shape your sound from crushing high-gain to shimmering cleans.

Play Fast and Smooth With Thin Neck and Ebony Fingerboard

Built for speed, the PT-8 MS has a comfortably thin C-shaped neck and an ebony fingerboard that's silky smooth for lightning fast lead runs. The thin profile provides exceptional playability, allowing your fretting hand to fly across the neck with precision and minimal effort. Combined with the 20" fingerboard radius, you can execute intricate solos and complex chords with ease. Whether you're ripping through shred licks or holding sustained bends, the Schecter plays like a dream.

Resonant Tone and Rock-Solid Stability

The PT-8 MS guitar features a resonant mahogany body reinforced with two carbon fiber rods for rock-solid stability, even under heavy playing. The lightweight mahogany offers singing sustain and organic warmth, while the satin black open pore finish looks and feels smooth. Black binding along the body, neck and headstock gives it a sleek, sinister look on stage. With its sculpted cutaways, you can access the highest frets for solos. Go from the studio to the gig with the rugged Schecter hardshell case.
