The Schecter Hellraiser C-1 with Floyd Rose Sustaniac Electric Guitar is an electric guitar that delivers tones guaranteed to satisfy any metal player. The Hellraiser's mahogany body has an ultra-access cutaway that really lets you get all the way up the 3-piece mahogany neck. The rosewood fretboard on the Hellraiser C-1 has 24 extra-jumbo frets and gothic cross inlays for an edgy look. Active EMG 81 and Sustainiac humbuckers deliver crushing electric guitar tone. Now you have more options that ever by activating single-coil sounds via push/pull volume knobs.

Its Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo bridge offers stable tuning no matter how hard you dive. Binding specifically chosen to complement the finish, Grover locking tuners, and black chrome hardware round out the Schecter Hellraiser C-1's killer look. The Black Cherry finish has a quilted maple top.

The original Rotomatic now has 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.

Rosewood Fingerboard
The most common fretboard, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

EMG Active 81/Sustainiac Pickups
81: Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high-end cut and fluid sustain. Sustainiac: This Driver/Pickup produces beautiful Humbucker tones when Sustain switch is off, and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched On. The Sustainiac Driver creates an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback.

3-Piece Mahogany Neck
Made with three pieces of mahogany for extra stability. three-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 with Floyd Rose Sustainiac Electric Guitar:

I am an intermediate player of three years. I have only played and learned metal an hard rock. It is true, this guitar is cute perfectly for metal, an hard rock. Me an my friends both agree this to be one of the nicest guitars we have ever actually seen in real life. The EMG's on this monster are the best ive ever played on any guitar, especially for the type of music i play. so here we go Pro's; fine tuning with tremolo system Amazing out put with distortion, clean and sutainer based notes. Has a beautiful finish an even feels quality in your hands. A Dynamic guitar that can vist various playing styles with studio quality finesse. Con's; Sometimes the sustainer will randomly activate some of thiner stingers if your not playing a quick enough passage or silencing the string often. The one i received had some blemishes in the finish of the fret board but other than that its a clean ergonomic sleek look. Overall; an amazing guitar all around, a little pricey but you can find discounts if you look. A mean machine indeed if you wish to play metal and utilize special effects
