The Hellraiser C-1 with Floyd Rose Sustainiac from Schecter is a metal machine built for shredding. Featuring a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and EMG 81 active humbucker in the bridge position, this ax delivers tight lows, searing highs and tuning stability for dive bombs and squeals. The Sustainiac pickup in the neck activates infinite feedback sustain, allowing notes to ring out endlessly. Push/pull volume knobs unlock single-coil tones for added tonal range.

Floyd Rose Tremolo Provides Flawless Tuning

The Floyd Rose 1000 double-locking tremolo system keeps the Hellraiser C-1 in tune through the most extreme whammy bar workouts. Players can plunge notes into oblivion or send pinched harmonics skyrocketing with confidence their guitar will return to pitch every time.

EMG 81 Pickup Grinds out Aggressive Rock Tones

The EMG 81 humbucker in the bridge position harnesses the power of active electronics to produce high-output distortion ideal for metal and hard rock. Punchy lows, searing highs and loads of output make this pickup a staple of modern rock guitar tones.

Sustainiac Pickup Provides Infinite Sustain

Activate the Sustainiac pickup in the neck position to produce endless feedback sustain. Notes will continue ringing indefinitely, allowing players to explore ambient textures or solo endlessly over a single chord. The Sustainiac pickup also produces traditional humbucker tones when disengaged.

Mahogany Body With Quilted Maple Top

A mahogany body with quilted maple top gives the Hellraiser C-1 balanced tone with clear highs and tight low end. The maple top adds visual flair with a striking wood grain pattern.
