So hey guys, I've done some searching for information about 8 string guitars and I'm deciding to give them a go. Between a Schecter Damien Elite 8 and a Agile Intrepid 828, which one would you recommend and why? I'll promise pics when I buy it on March.

828, the longer scale is essential and imho Agile necks are better for 8s than Schecter.

Yeah I had an 827 and I would definitely go for an 828. One thing I would do though is get a natural neck and sand the back down a little. They are too thick for my liking.

I'd actually disagree with the previous replies saying that the 28.625 scale is necessary. I have a 27" Septor and a 28.625" Intrepid and, in all honesty, unless you're planning on down tuning, the 27" scale is more than adequate. I have the same strings on both and the tension is fine on the shorter neck.

As for deciding between the Schecter and Agile, however, I'd agree. I'd go with the Agile.

However, I'd also wait until after Schecter's SLS line comes out. They've got some really cool looking stuff coming out in it, including longer scale length options, if you do decide you want to go that way.

Nice axe bro...Also, can you do thrash metal without being called a poser with a downtuned 7-string? Or will you get something like Diabolus in Musica?

EDIT: What do you think about the pups?

good, id wondered about that pickup. now i know never to waste money on one!

bogg808, nice sceptor! i never thought of black as being a color that would look good flamed. i really like ESP/LTDs but their trans black flames jobs just dont do it for me. agiles definitely look nicer in that respect.
