Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR-S

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.


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


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.


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.


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.

The product is much better than I had hoped. The sustainer is incredible and the guitar is like a work of art. The guitar is fast, fast, fast and the tones are incredible.
