    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

    Oh man. Where to start. Not only is this the best guitar I have ever played, or ever held in my hands. The color is eye poping amazing. The abalone binding draw the eye but it is not a hey look at how flashy i am guitar. It is beatiful in everyway. I have been playing music for almost 4 years now. I really gotta say that this guitar sings so well and complements my personality in so many ways. It has so much versatillaty for anything you want to through at it. For some I can see how they may not like the pickups. However, i think they are the best pickups of any guitar i have ever heard. And i have been listening to music for as long as i have been alive for the last 22 years. It is amazingly set up right out of the box. The neck is smooth. Like butter, that has been melted. This song sings. Being able to express myself so easily and being able to pull of pinch harmonics is very easy. It comes with 10 to 59s equiped from earnie ball, and for what they are its amazing. Even unplugged this guitar has stellar sound. After looking at this guitar for more then a year, i went with it. It put me in debt up to my eye balls. But worth it. Totally worth every aspect. Ive dubbed the white model which is the one i got "Valhalla"

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

      I am in no way a professional musician, but have been around the recording industry quite a bit. This guitar has the best active electronics (of course EMG does no less). They can output very clear high end and very full rich low end on both clean and dirty settings. The seventh string sounds so natural to the instrument. It does not fail in giving a good dynamic range. Out of the box, the instrument I received had great intonation and set with perfect action for 9's B-E-A-D-G-B-E. The best feature by far in this instrument is the coil splitting volume knobs! On single coil setting it sounds very similar to a Strat. It's obviously not exactly the same due to the construction of this instrument but it gives much more versatility than your regular equipped EMG guitar. The 26.5" scale length is perfect for the low-end of the instrument. Virtually no buzzing from the low B. Only downside for me as a player is that doing a run from the first five frets is a little more difficult than on a 25" or 25.5" guitar which I was used to. But other than that, instrument is highly recommended.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

      After playing with six strings for years, i wanted to up the ante a little bit in my ability of songwriting. I had been on the market of wanting to get a 7 string for probably a year but never knew what one to pull the trigger on seeing how the closest guitar center was more than 2 hours from my home. Looking at all brands and models online i just couldn't choose. I was mostly looking between ibanez and schecter. I went to guitar center before i had moved and immediately went straight for the 7 strings on the wall which were ibanez and the schecter. Upon playing these guitars back and forth for almost an hour, the more i played the schecter the more i didn't wanna put it back. The feel of the guitar for one is so nice and comfortable. The lock tuning is amazing for you can hammer on these strings and not worry about tuning it as often. The EMG 707 provide such a crisp and hard hitting tone perfect my style of music which is mostly metal. I ended up purchasing the floor model in red which was so beautiful. I didn't wanna wait for them to have to order another one. I also didn't expect to walk out of the store with a guitar. Definitely recommend to any guitarist that wants to add that extra oomph into their playing!

      The Ultimate Metal Machine

      By Kevyn

      from Dousman, WI

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

      This guitar has exceeded my expectations on every front. Having played on C-7s at my local GC, i knew that i had fallen in love. However, i can now tell that this will be one instrument i will keep forever. I'll start off with rating the looks. I had played on my friends black C-7 and a black cherry colored, but to me white was the most eye-catching color option. Delivered free from GC, it got to my house in just 3 business days, and i was simply amazed. I knew that the guitar looked great from the pictures i had seen online, but this guitar is beautiful. the simple design, abalone binding and cross inlays add a nice touch. On to the function of the Schecter, i was honestly somewhat skeptical because i couldn't seem to get the right tone out of the ones at Guitar Center, but i figured it was just the amp. And i figured right. on my 'home' setup (playing through a Line 6 2x12 with a Boss MetalCore pedal,) it lived up to and even exceeded my expectations. I was also somewhat surprised at it's amazing tone, (mostly for it's bassy lows) because i wasn't sure if it could surpass my Les Paul. Until now, i had thought Les Pauls had the best tone, but now i know that Schecter is a worthy competitor. As for the neck, it is surprisingly thin for the sustain that it can hold, although still somewhat chunky, and stays very accessable all the way up. If you're worried about reaching the low string or adjusting to having an extra one, don't be: it is just as easy as adopting to any other new guitar. The EMG's provide an added overdrive boost, but not so much that the distortion becomes soggy and unclear. The tone stays beefy on the lower end, but cleans itself up as you move up the strings. The coil taps give you a little less crunchy, somewhat classic- rock sounding tone, but not much of a change, and haven't experimented enough to find much use for these. Also surprising is how light it is for a mahogony giutar. For my first seven string, the Schecter C-7 far exceeded my expectations and i know that this will be one that will stay with me forever.

      sick guitar

      By S

      from aspen colorado

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

      this is my first 7 string and i was looking at different ibanez 7s but the ibanezs felt like they werent powerful. that is not the case here. this guitar is absolutely fantastic. the neck is nice and slim for shredding and the active emgs in this guitar make other ibanez 7s no match for this guitar. if you love metal and you want those low heavy riffs and still want the high pitch shredding, then this is your guitar. i like to play slipknot, megadeth, killswitch engage, and all that remains. i love this guitar it was my best buy and for the price its sold at is a bargain.

      Never will I stray!

      By Will

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

      I was in the market for a 7-string about a year and a half ago.. When I picked this beauty up and plugged her in to a Marshall MG (solid state) halfstack, I was simply amazed. I Have never before and never since played a guitar with more Diversity in tone. You can get the sweetest tone out of those EMG's you will ever hear. Buy one, you will not regret it. Whether it be a C-1 Hellraiser, or a c-7. I am addicted to Schecter!

      RAISE SOME HELL!!!

      By Jon

      from Kissimmee FL

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

      I played this today on a Line6/Bogner MKII 2x12 and this guitar is beastly. The neck is just right if you are used to a 6 string guitar, And the neck-through design is fantastic. The EMG 707s make the already low B sound even more metal. This guitar probbably ways about 4-5 pounds, as opposed to the usual 7-8 punds on Mahogany guitars. And the weight is even throughout. The ONLY thing i wish was different, i wish it had EBONY fretboard instead of a Rosewood. But this guitar is still fantastic. Oh and the Split coil deal makes it play cleans VERY well.

      amazing guitar

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

      After playing this guitar as much as i have, it just easy to say this guitar is great for any metal player. I was very unsure about it being a 7 string, but picked it up and quickly adapted to it. the neck is very fast and easy to navigate. This guitar begs to be shredded on. This is just an amazing guitar

I would seriously recommend this guitar to anyone who loves metal and loves schecter as much as i do
