Just in stock, this John Brown TAO-8 is one of the hottest current Schecter models and plays as slick as it looks. The 27" scale is perfect for standard or drop tuning and the wenge neck and stainless frets provide a super smooth platform for your heaviest riffs.

After years of prog metal experimentation and an intense dedication to guitars and gear, John Browne’s expertise has culminated with the Tao-8 electric guitar from Schecter. With a unique tonewood marriage, a pair of red-hot Schecter USA humbuckers, and a sleek satin neck, the Tao-8 replicates the very style and tone of Browne’s everyday axe. Undoubtedly, a wealth of sonic sounds is key to his success. Therefore, Schecter included a volume push-pull control knob and 3-way pickup switch to ensure top-notch audial possibilities. Care to take things to the stage like the man himself? No problem: the Tao-8s bridge and tuning machines offer excellent intonation stability. And with a highly visible side marker design, you’ll be able to wield the power of prog metal’s finest in any location possible.
