Pierce Ears with This Schecter's Endless Sustain

You haven't heard how long notes can last until you shoulder the Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR-S electric guitar. This stunning axe fuels your signal via an EMG 81 active humbucker in the bridge and a Sustainiac in the neck position, housed in a dark-sounding mahogany body. A three-piece mahogany neck harnesses razor-thin action over 24 jumbo frets in a super-smooth rosewood fingerboard, and cool dark chrome hardware, a super-flexible Floyd Rose 1000 Series bridge, and volume, push/pull tone, and intensity controls all bring you a superb speed-demon axe that's ready to unleash some sinister tone.

EMG 81 Bridge and Sustainiac Neck Humbucker Pickups

Lead fearlessly with the Hellraiser C-1's pickup complement: an EMG 81 active humbucker in the bridge and Sustainiac in the neck position. Your bridge pickup packs powerful overdrive and a full and heavy distortion perfect for rock or metal, and the Sustainiac neck pickup captures and retains an endless and spine-bending sustain from your strings via the two-way switch next to your Hellraiser's bridge. Flip the switch to kill the feedback and turn your Sustainiac into another sweet-sounding neck humbucker. Both pickups are shielded in protective casings to keep out rust, dust, and sweat, so your tone will always be clean, pristine, and uninterrupted.

Three-piece Mahogany Neck

Your Schecter Hellraiser's extra-stable neck is built from three separate pieces of mahogany. This tonewood provides a dark tone to your playing, accentuating lows and mids. This comfy appendage features a rosewood fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets with super-close action for speedy runs. Sleek abalone gothic cross inlays offer an appealing visual edge that goes well with this axe's darker tonal character.

Dive Super Low: Floyd Rose 1000 Series Bridge

Your Schecter Hellraiser features a super-flexible Floyd Rose 1000 Series bridge. This quality piece of hardware will keep your tuning in check -- so go ahead and dive this baby as low as possible before returning your strings to their standard tensions. Use the Floyd Rose in conjunction with your sustain-engaged Sustainiac neck humbucker, and you'll create sounds that just aren't on the table with other axes!

Product Description

The folks at Schecter have made a living introducing innovative instruments for professional and amateur musicians alike, and the Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR Sustainiac is no exception. Guitarists that enjoy soloing will love this guitar with its ability to produce an incredible amount of sustain thanks to the EMG Active 81 pickup and Sustainiac Driver. Artists absolutely hate when they have to spend time constantly making sure their instrument is in tune, but with the Grover tuners on this Schecter electric you'll forget all about it. Working musicians always worry about the safety of their guitar and their livelihood, but with the mahogany 3 piece neck this Hellraiser electric is durable during transport and on-stage.

Grover

The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination

Rosewood

The most common fingerboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

EMG Active 81

The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps giving it a razor-sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing.

Sustainiac

This Driver/Pickup produces beautiful Humbucker tones when Sustain switch is off, and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched On. The Sustainiac Driver creates an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback.

Neck

Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.
