OMG it's amazing

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Tempest Electric Guitar:

I got to say that this guitar is the most amazing guitar I've ever seen, used, and triumphed with! I literally went to Guitar Center for several hours and tried over 50 guitars, and this won my vote! The guitar literally blew me away, and it was by far the easiest to handle! 5 Stars indeed!! *****

Great guitar

By Steve

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Tempest Electric Guitar:

I purchased this about two weeks ago, and I am highly impressed. I own another Schecter, an Ibanez, and a 1982 Gibson Les Paul Standard. This guitar plays as well if not better than the Gibson. The EMG pickups work great and I have found them to sound good on clean settings also. However, they are superb for Metal. If asked, I would suggest this guitar, well built, no buzz, only thing i adjusted was raising the pickups, due to the capibility of active pickups.

One of the best, especially for the price

By Guillermo Vargas

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Tempest Electric Guitar:

I have owned this guitar for quite a while, (2007 model). Just FYI, the 2007 model is the same except it does not have the push in knobs for single coils and the tuners are not locking, they are grover tuners. The guitar is designed for distortion but its decent on clean mode (better than most other metal guitars anyway) and the construction quality is great. Over all the guitar is very easy to play, sounds top-knoch, and it looks great on stage, what more does anyone want from a musical intrument? I cannot say anything about the push-in knobs or the locking tuners because i have never tried em but the EMG humbuckers are good for low empidence and the grover tuners never fail me. Great guitar and one of my personal favorites. Hope this helps.

Unbeatable!

By Hugo

from California

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Tempest Electric Guitar:

So I decided to try this guitar becasue I love Schecter. The only difference in the one that I tried is that it was the Blackjack version of it. The sound is plain amazing! The push pull knobs are a wonderful addition to this guitar, especially when I was playing Afterlife. The neck was great...flowed through the body. It handled all tunings I put it in. All around amazing guitar that I would recommend to anybody who plays clean and really heavy. But if you want a really cool looking one, get the Blackjack because it had playing cards for the twelfth fret inlay. Buy It!

Impressive

By Fox

from Ketchikan, Alaska

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Tempest Electric Guitar:

I was searching for a new ax for quite sometime and after searching for an affordable Gibson with no avail, I stumbled upon Schecter. After reading reviews, watching videos and various other testing, I decided to go for it. I couldn't be happier with it. It looks great, sounds great and (most importantly) feels great. Since it's all mahogony, it has a darker tone but I think it could be used for a wide variety of music. Deffinately recomend.
