    Which do you guys prefer: the Banshee elite 8 or the Hellraiser C8 hybrid? Not a huge floyd rose fan, prefer the hybrid over the FR. Thoughts?

    Hellraiser C8 hybrid for me.
    The pickups on the banshee are kinda meh to me, and i don't like the aesthethic.

    I had the Hybrid C8.
    I do love the 57/66 pickups of the Hybrid. It sounded great overall, I love the aesthetic.
    I don't like the aesthetic of the Banshee, but I'd probably prefer the swamp ash body and ability to swap to any passive pickup.

    Agreed. I love the 57/66 pickup combo and prefer it over the USA customs in the Banshee. But I like the feel and look of the Banshee more

    If you can find one, the avenger 8 is awesome. The banshee is great though, I had the nazgul/sentient loaded version

    Gotta go with the Banshee, although I know the production models have ebony not maple. and different pickups/finish.

    A8 man, I love that thing. I had a Banshee for awhile and never really got along with it for whatever reason. I did like the C8 that I tried awhile back but it was one with the ridiculous inlays that Schecter likes to ruin perfectly good guitars with, so I didn't buy it.
