Overview

Built with neck-thru construction and a sleek contoured body, the Hellraiser C-1 FR Extreme is armed with a pair of active EMG pickups with black chrome covers, a Floyd Rose 1000 Series locking tremolo bridge and Grover 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.

Grover tuning machines
The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.

Case sold separately.

The best Guitar one grand can buy!

By Martin Leonardo Carranza Garcia

from Mexico

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

This guitar is perfect in all senses! it wont go out of tune even if abusing the tremolo, the finish is smooth and doesnt catch fingerprints or stains, the emg pickups are great for every playing style ! i compared them with seymour duncan blackouts, nevertheless the blackouts have higher output and far more sustain.. this is awesome for playing riffs, but the cleans sound a bit dirty!... with the emg you have the perfect amount of output and sustain, without having to sacrifice your clean playing!!, if it aint much, if you split the coils, the cleans sound so much clear! .. i definitely recomend this guitar for any guitarist who wants to buy the LAST of his collection

Top of the Line Electric Guitar

By JOHN HAUSMANN

from Milwaukee, WI

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

Though this guitar is a "Shredder's Dream", don't stereotype it as a heavy metal guitar. I play mostly rock and roll and lots of clean songs and the range of clean and beautiful tones are really, really impressive. In my opinion this is a marriage of two amazing guitars (Fender Strat Deluxe and a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe) and you get the best of both worlds with this one: Body Weight & Feel - Les Paul Body Design - Strat Neck - Les Paul Fingerboard - Strat Pick Ups - Les Paul Headstock/Tuners - Les Paul Tremelo System - Strat Layout and feel of the whole top - Strat Selector switch - Strat Control Knobs - Les Paul Quality of finish - Les Paul. I think the EMG pick ups really put this over the edge sound-wise. You are getting a lot of guitar for the price and that's reflected that it doesn't come with case, case candy or manual.
