The Schecter C-1 Hellraiser FR electric guitar boasts a flexible Floyd Rose bridge along with everything shredders love about Schecter Hellraisers -- a smooth rosewood fingerboard with menacing Gothic cross fingerboard inlays on 24 XJ frets, an EMG 89 humbucker and EMG 81 humbucker pairing with push/pull coil-splitting tone controls, a warm and well-balanced mahogany and maple body with attractive abalone binding, and that comfortable, modern-looking body shape. If you're looking for sophisticated style and incredibly fast playability, you've found it.

Mahogany and Rosewood Neck for Fast Fingers

Speedy fingers need a speedy neck, and this appendage is ready for the mayhem. A rosewood fretboard houses 24 XJ frets and features stylish gothic cross fingerboard inlays. Mahogany necks yield a deep sound and offer lingering sustain that'll help generate some hair-raising feedback. The shape offers a smooth feel for rapid position changes, and the C-1's set neck joint yields a smooth transfer of sound.

Mahogany and Maple Body

The slightly arched maple top gives this axe a sleek modern look. As a guitar tonewood, maple brings in a modest dose of brightness, while mahogany pushes the lows and mids. As a result, your playing will maintain an evenly balanced resonance for rock and metal enthusiasts. The double cutaway grants your fingers serious access, both under and over the neck, if you want to throw in some impressive onstage tricks for your audience to enjoy. read more

EMG 89 and EMG 81 Humbuckers

EMG humbuckers are a metalhead's best friend when it comes to tone. The EMG 89 at the neck utilizes Alnico V magnets and forges a powerful and thick output. The EMG 81 at the bridge brings in more grit and slice to the mix. Both humbuckers can be split into single-coil mode via your push/pull volume controls.

Floyd Rose Bridge for Expressive Shredding

Few bridge systems get as expressive as the iconic Floyd Rose tremolo bridge. Once you get your strings in tune, lock them down at the nut and make your final tonal adjustments on the each string's tuning knob at the bridge. Once you're there, you can bend, shred, and dive-bomb each string to the max while maintaining consistent intonation during your performance.

"An incredible guitar, outstanding quality... Makes me proud to own one!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I think this will be my favorite guitar out of my 3 (the others being a Kramer Striker, Ibanez Prestige RG1570)
Sound
This guitar sounds awesome running through my EVH 5150 III half stack, I "like" the sound of my Ibanez Prestige RG1570 but I "LOVE" the sound of this Schecter!
Features
The coil taping is nice when you are searching for a particular sound to say the least it gives you more of a tonal range. The original Floyd Rose is awesome, much better than the licensed by Floyds (I have had several lic. by and a few "Real Floyds"). I love the active EMGs (this is my 1st active pickup guitar).
Ease of Use
Easy to use, if your new to a Floyd Rose it is more difficult than a fixed bridge but no more difficult than any other tremelo system.
Quality
Very nice quality, a true work of art. If it did not say "Korea" on it you would never know, the quality and workmanship is very nice.
Value
A nice value, but I wish it came with the case included... it's still a great bargain though! I can always wish right :)
Manufacturer Support
Nice to deal with, my guitar did not come with a warranty card so I called and they explained that all I needed was my receipt and I was good to go.
The Wow Factor
The Black Cherry looks totally awesome!
