Overview

The Hellraiser Deluxe electric guitar, Schecter's newest addition to the Hellraiser family, is just as infernally elegant as its siblings. The mahogany body is capped with figured maple, finished in crimson burst, and bound in black. The 3-piece mahogany neck plays super fast and smooth with a rosewood fretboard and 24 jumbo frets for effortless bending.
Like the rest of the Hellraiser clan, the Deluxe guitar has a pair of high-output EMG active humbuckers, an EMG-81 in the bridge and an 85 in the neck, for searing leads and tight sledgehammer riffs. The Schecter guitar features mother-of-pearl crescent inlays that run the length of the fretboard, coming together in a unique 12th fret pattern that you just have to see to appreciate. Finally, the Tune-o-matic-style bridge and thru-body stringing ensure singing sustain.

I just recently got this guitar, And from the moment i laid eyes on it, i fell in love with it. I picked it up and started playing it on a line 6 Spider IV amp and it gives me a very great tube-amp like sound with this guitar, And the active EMG pickups make it so versatile when it comes to playing many different types of music. Its got a very fast neck, its not heavy, and it holds its sustain like a Lespaul. Its very sturdy, and hardly ever goes out of tune! This guitars great for anyone, from beginner to advanced, this guitar does it all, and its got a price tag that cannot be beat!

When I got this guitar I played great but a week down the road the neck got loose and would not tighten no matter how hard i made them to go in. The emgs were dirty and it would not stay in tune

HARDCORE

By Phil

from Grants, New Mexico

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This guitar is not for the beginner guitar player, or the Jazz or Soft Rock player. The name itself (HELLRAISER) screams METAL! i've been playing on a Jackson and never liked Shecter guitars, but after i got this guitar its my new favorite company. The active 81/85s sound amazing and the paint has a aggeresive look and feel to it plus the black hardware its just so right, you got to dumb not to buy this guitar it looks and sounds amazing for a reasonable price.

Simply awesome

By Tony

from hollywood

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

Active 81/85 pickups, are included!!!!! Jesus these pickups are great. the guitar is beautiful! Looks a lot better in person. Sturdy and solid! The neck plays beautifully. Grover Tuners kick butt. I bought some Dunlop strap locks for it, as well as a coffin case, which keeps the guitar nice and tight! I think the coffin case suits this guitar perfectly. The locking tuners are D Shiznit.

One Word: Epic!

By Mark V

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This guitar shouldn't be $500 because how it plays, sounds, handles, feels like I dropped a couple grand into my guitar. I've played a couple live shows and it has no problem keeping up with me. I also use it for home recording and it's been great coupled with the JamVox (using windows 7). The only issue I had was with a Monster Cable 1/4 1/4 which scared me in thinking it was my input on the guitar but other than that everything has been ace. Also my girlfriend has been practicing on this guitar so I would recommend it for beginner to advance.

Amazing

By Brett

from Yukon, Oklahoma

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This was my second guitar, and it is truly worth every penny. It has a good weight, and the feel is like something from a dream. The inlays are totally badness. The sound is metal all the way. But don't get me wrong, it has a great clean channel as well. All in all, this is a stupendous guitar, especially if you want more than Schecter's low end guitars, but the Hellraiser's and C1's are a little too pricy.

great

By Ballsius

from Reseda, California

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

great guitar had an ibanex rg2ex1 before this and i wouldnt go back to it if i had to be beat over the head with it. the scechter has a great neck, feels really nice and solid. the tune o matic bridge keeps everything in tune but stays out of the way. palm muting is so easy on this beast of a guitar. the emg 81 85's are amazing they even make my terrible line 6 spider 3 15 watt sound good. i play mostly metal, metallica, lamb of god, all shall perish, megadeath and the gutiar can handle the lower tunings as well as standard and c and d. everything is here. the guitar is amazing. worth the money. plus it looks great

Great guitar

By jake

from TN

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

let me first say this buitars looks are amazing. the picture on the website doesnt really look like the actual thing. Whenever i first plugged this thing in it sounded so much better than anything than i had ever played before. The EMG 81/85 pickups are some of the best metal pickups out there. the neck is also very smooth and very easy to play on. This guitar still sounds very good even if u downtune it to A. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who wants to play metal. even though it has a great clean sound too. I played the rest of the hellraiser series before i got this one and this one beats all the others in looks, sound, and feel. thats what she said...... it is also cheaper so i would definately get this one

A metal must have!

By Austin

from Grants Pass, Oregon

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar as my third guitar. I originally went down to my local guitar center with the anticipation of purchasing a Schecter Tempest. I loved the Tempest and still do. But it had more of a chording or riffing feel to it rather than a lead feel. I picked up this hellraiser just to see how it felt. I loved it instantly. It is beautiful. I've had it now for 8 months and I'm still star struck. The neck is incredibly thin and fast. The pickups sound AMAZING clean for picking interludes and as soon as you hit your distortion this thing screams and growls. Low crunchy riffs just rumble through this guitar. Decent sustain. And all frets of this guitar are easily accessible. The 81/85 combo is perfect for my style of playing. And not to mention it is freaking beautiful. The picture on guitarcenter.com is so sad to the true beauty of this guitar. I would recommend this to any metal guitar player. Everyone that has played my hellraiser as been blown away.

blown the hell away...

By SuperCrazyUltimateGuitarDude

from bridgeport CT

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

Wow...im not sure what quite to say about this. i was planning on buying a shecter damien 6 when i walked into guitar center, which i thought was awsome by the way, but i decided to check out one more guitar. this was it. i compared the damien 6 to this and forgot why i liked it ha ha ha! what im saying is that the damien is really nice but this is way better...better than any guitar i've ever played actually. the pickups pack so much distortion and power that its beyond amazing, but if you turn the tone knob up, switch the pickup selecter down, and set your amp to a clean setting, its still absoulutly amazing sounding clean...so amazing. ever since i got it its pretty much all i think about. ITS SO AWESOMLY EPICLY AMAZING!!!! the only disapointing thing is the picture of it. The finish is much better in person! The guitar its self does not disapoint at all. great for pretty much what ever you want to play. GET THIS GUITAR!!!!!!

2 out of 2 complete junk

By Sorlark

from CHarleston, WV

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

First one, played great at first, then as each day passed, the strings were always out of tune. After A week I noticed the action was abuot the same as my 6 year old Ibanez, that had a bent AND twisted neck. I took it to a professional and confirmed my suspicions. He took a look, said yep, bent neck, return it now. So over 2 weeks later ( Musicians Friend ) I got another one. Straight out of the box I strummed the strings and sustain? HAHAHAHA the string buzzed off the frets like I had never heard before. I tried to adjust what I could. Then realized I shouldn't have to be adjusting a guitar to the extreme straight out of the box. Which btw, didn't help it at all. You cannot play the guitar. Currently I'm debating gambling on a 3rd, Or just getting my money back. So take your chances if you want.

What else can you ask for?

By zdeeew

from Alhambra, CA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I brought this beauty home back in June. After 3 months, Amazing is the only words I can say about this guitar. EMG 81/85 ... one of the best pickups in the Metal world. The tuner pig is good, look solid to me. So I wouldn't have to worry about it that much. Action are great out of the box. Long sustain, but I have change mine to TonePro tune-o-matic bridge. Clean is ok. (hello, this is EMG 81/85.) For all the metal head out there, what else can you ask for with this axe in such a good price?

Total brutal

By zeron1nj4Sp

from Greer,SC

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I just got this guitar and it is so great for metal it can only be described as brutal it might even be double brutal. The neck is incredibly fast and the emgs are excellent. This guitar is a beast. Only problem is if you play anything besides metal look elsewhere. Igot this guitar because my Fender Strat with the dimarzio billy corgam custom pickups just isn't right for metal and I am 100% satisfyed with the purchase.

Great Guitar!

By Art Intrieri

from PA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Deluxe Electric Guitar:

You can't beat this guitar for the price. It was playable right from the store. This guitar felt natural in my hands, and the action was perfect. The paint looks great and it's very unique and stylish. The active's give it a lot of punch, but I was amazed at how clean it sounds as well. 5 stars for this one
