I am not you typical church musician.... I've had this guitar for 6 months. I really Like it. I play out every week and it sounds great. The active EMG's are fantastic. These EMG's are the things squeels are made of. Great sustain. Rippin leads. The coil tap is very useful for clean picking. The feel of the neck is one of the great things about it. It is kind of thick. A thin neck wears my hand out and I don't have that problem with this guitar. I also like the quilted maple top. It looks great. I am shopping for the exact same guitar with a FloydRose right now. I have been studying Trem Techniques and have come close to mastering it so it is time for an upgrade from my Ibanez. I know these active pick ups will scream dive bomb harmonics. so the EMG 81TW/89 is a must for me. There is no other option. I came across this and figured my review would help someone. If you come from a rock/metal background you will find no better combination than this guitar with a Line 6 Pod X3 live!!

This is a great guitar. But for the price, you could get the Damien Elite which is almost the exact same guitar, for about half the price. Same EMG's same neck, and throw in a floyd rose for still MUCH CHEAPER than this guitar. This guitar ,however, has a slightly more detailed flame top, but is it really worth 300+ more for a slightly more detailed finish?

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 Electric Guitar:

while working full time one summer i decided to buy a new guitar, i wasnt planing on spending this much but im so glad i did. this really is a great guitar for anyone who can afford it... especially those who love metal, because this guitar can seriously live up to its name. the hellraiser plays, sounds, looks, and feels like it is worth several times more than the cost, this is a lifetime guitar for me, no doubt about it. schecter does some incredible work.

This thing is the shiz

By Jordan Payne

from Cambridge City, IN

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar from Guitar Centers used stuff(which is the cheapest i've found anything musical) and absolutely love it. It plays like butter and the emg's are so sick. Its hard to put it down. And i just have to comment on Guitar Centers performance. It was packaged really great. And they told me it might take 4 or 5 days to ship (at another low cost). And i got it in two and a half. Almost everything they sell (even used) has a thirty day money back guarantee so i was able to buy it without stress. And they didn't let me down. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who likes playing. Sounds great clean annnd distorted. Also the grovers keep it in tune great. Check plus for Schecter...and Guitar Center.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is very good for the price. The EMGs sound really good distorted and with coil tapping, their clean sound as good as some of the strats i've heard.

Did I get a lemon ?

By JoeMomma

from Akron, OH

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 Electric Guitar:

Well, I played this guitar in the store for about 3 minutes, and was pretty impressed with it. However after I got it home, the more I played it, the less I liked it. The sustain was pretty bad, and the range of tones i could coax it into making was pretty limited. Pulling the knob out for the coil tap seemed to do nothing but make the sustain even worse. I traded an epiphone les paul ultra for this guitar, and the epiphone had sustain forever, and a really awesome warm tone. this guitar had neither. and the epi was about $200 less. maybe the one i got was junk, but i would strongly advise anyone to play it in the store before buying. positives : neck felt good, was fast, and very responsive. Jumbo frets make it easier for someone with bigger hands to play. cutaway makes accessing the high notes really easy. absolutely beautiful guitar. negatives : sustain on mine was terrible. sometimes a note would peter out to nothing after only like 2 seconds... I experienced this mainly on the high notes. range of tones i could get were limited. I even put a fresh battery in it, and no luck. i ended up returning this guitar after about 3 weeks of daily playing, and getting a gibson les paul studio, which sounds absolutely amazing.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 Electric Guitar:

I HAVE BEEN PLAYING GUITAR FOR 27 YEARS I HAVE PLAYED ABOUT EVERY GUITAR MADE .2 YEARS AGO I WENT INTO GUITAR CENTER TO BUY A NEW ONE I TOOK $2000 DOLLARS WITH ME I WANTED A GIBSON LES PAUL AFTER PLAYING A LOT OF GIBSONS MY SON WAS PLAYING THIS C-1 AND IT HAD THIS GREAT TONE SO I PLAYED IT FOR ALL OF 5 MIN. AND HAD TO BUY IT. THE PICK UPS ARE GREAT THEY HAVE A HARD ROCK METAL SOUND WHEN HEAVY DISTORTED BUT YOU CAN SPLIT THE COILS AND GET A LOT OF FENDER LIKE SOUNDS.
