Overview

Built with neck-thru construction and a sleek contoured body, the Hellraiser C-1 Extreme is armed with a pair of active EMG pickups with black chrome covers, a TonePros TOM w/ string-thru body bridge and Schecter locking tuners. Elegant design appointments include "Gothic Crosses" inlay on your choice of ebony or flamed maple fretboard, and the entire guitar is adorned with black chrome hardware.

Multi-laminate maple & walnut neck
Made from 3 pieces of maple and 2 center strips of walnut. This well balanced combination of select wood takes the bright tones of maple and adds a dark tone from the walnut strips. Often used for Thru neck construction giving the acoustic tone of the instrument a perfect string vibration transfer to the body.

Choice of ebony or flamed maple fretboard
Giving the player the ultimate in versatility and tone, you have the option of selecting ebony with its snappy crisp attack or flamed maple with it's dense bright and reflective tone.

EMG active 81/89R active pickups
The 81 utilizes powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils for tone that was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. This pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. The 89 is loaded with Alnico V magnets and has separate preamps each providing custom outputs for both dual coil and single coil modes (R Version use REAR coil). In dual-coil mode, the sound is rich, warm and powerful, but still very clear and is similar to the 85.

Schecter locking tuning machines
Schecter locking tuners feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable knobs, threaded peghead bushing and a 10mm diameter peg hole.

Case sold separately.

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

I got this guitar a couple years ago and it has been my go-to guitar for any style of music since I got it. Obviously this beauty is geared towards metal, but the EMG 89R in the neck really diversifies the tones you can get out of it. The 81 in the bridge gets a screaming tone, lots of mid range and high end to it so you can easily boost the bass a bit on you amp if you want a darker tone but you'll never worry about cutting through the mix enough! The ONLY thing I'd ever consider a "downside" to this beast is the fact that the neck pickup can single coil tap, but honestly, its not a big enough issue for me to worry about.

GREAT GUITAR

By JEFFREY WEBSTER

from Los Angeles, California

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

Great all around quality in this guitar. From the EMG pick-ups, to the easy feeling neck, and the overall tone of this guitar is awesome. The EMG'S of course scream! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it didn't come with a case. You send $1,000 on a guitar, it should have a case! My opinion...I have a ESP EC-1000, Les Paul Studio, ESP KH-202, {now withe EMG pick-ups!}, and the tone is the best out of these guitars. Very happy with this guitar. I have had this guitar now for 3 months, Christmas present to myself!

HellRaiser Extreme!

By Michael Runkel

from Brownstown

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

This s an absolutely AWESOME guitar! I particularly love the set neck that has ultimate access to every fret. The Ebony fingerboard is absolutely lovely and is so smooth that you might mistake it for some other material besides wood. The Gothic cross and other patterns that make up the inlays are a work of art. Besides all the aesthetics this guitar rocks! If you love Metal, you'll love how the active EMG pick-ups howl and scream. There is plenty of sustain thanks to the string - through construction and quality in the way this thing is built. Rock solid and beautiful to behold. You gotta love it!
