A Speed-Demon Schecter Guitar with Shredding Attitude!
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.
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.
