Overview

The 8-string Schecter Hellraiser C-8 electric guitar has a gorgeous quilted maple top, a double cutaway mahogany body, 3-piece set mahogany neck, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. The Hellraiser C-8 has a long 26-1/2" scale length to accommodate the lower tuning of the added F# and B strings. The guitar's Hipshot 8 fixed bridge provides maximum stability and sustain.

Schecter loads the 8-string Hellraiser guitar with a pair of EMG-808 active humbucker pickups featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils that beef tones from the Low strings while providing a more responsive, super tight overall sound. The extended scale C-8 is reinforced with dual graphite rods for tuning and neck stability. Appointments include gothic cross inlays, abalone body binding, and black chrome hardware. Only 100 Hellraider C-8 guitars will be available in the USA.

A Beautiful, Brutal Dream

By Ryan F.

from Metro Detroit, MI

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-8 Electric Guitar:

Schecter comes through again with another brilliant guitar. The set neck provides a sleek look and adds to the nice tone. The EMG808's provide a lovely tight response resulting in a well-balanced tone all the way down to the low F#. Rich deep defined lows and tight crystal clear highs. What more could you ask for? I highly recommend this guitar. Get one while you still can!

Hellraiser C-8

By Sam Andrews

from Wildwood Mo.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-8 Electric Guitar:

The C-8 I received was in perfect shape. The 16 inch fretboard radius is great. I down tune one full step, and use .012, .016, .022, .034, .046, .060 for the first six, and this keeps the tension consistent and more than adequate. Make sure you get a plain (not wound) G string at .022. The pickups give a good clear tone, but can get muddy sounding on the base, if you don't have the right diameter strings, and get the pickups set just right on the height. Honestly this is more guitar than I expected, and the neck and the fretting is really good. The locking tuners are fantastic. I changed the volume knobs to a shorter version and put a couple of washers betwwen the pot and the body, as one of them is too close to the strings and was a bit in the way. A lot of guitar for the money. I also own Gibson, Godin, and Takamine and a Fender acoustic. These pickups really like Curt Mangan strings. Tried Daddario, Dhs, and Clear Tones. Mangan and Clear Tone gave the best tone, Mangans are cheaper and sound the best, and its easy to get the Plain .022, which this guitar really needs rather than the .020 G string.
