Schecter Guitar Research

A super-fast neck, active EMG pickups and a Floyd Rose tremolo make this a value-packed shredder.

The Schecter Hellraiser C-1 with Floyd Rose Sustaniac Electric Guitar is an electric guitar that delivers tones guaranteed to satisfy any metal player. The Hellraiser's mahogany body has an ultra-access cutaway that really lets you get all the way up the 3-piece mahogany neck. The rosewood fretboard on the Hellraiser C-1 has 24 extra-jumbo frets and gothic cross inlays for an edgy look. Active EMG 81 and Sustainiac humbuckers deliver crushing electric guitar tone. Now you have more options that ever by activating single-coil sounds via push/pull volume knobs.

Its Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo bridge offers stable tuning no matter how hard you dive. Binding specifically chosen to complement the finish, Grover locking tuners, and black chrome hardware round out the Schecter Hellraiser C-1's killer look. The Black Cherry finish has a quilted maple top.

The original Rotomatic now has 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 Fingerboard
The most common fretboard, 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/Sustainiac Pickups
81: Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high-end cut and fluid sustain. 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.

3-Piece Mahogany Neck
Made with three pieces of mahogany for extra stability. three-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.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 with Floyd Rose Sustainiac Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is insane!! Bending strings is very fluid and easy, it stays in tune even when dive bombing etc. The guitar is a little on the heavy side compared to a schecter blackjack sls. The emg pickup rock!! very clear and precise. The sustaniac pickup takes a little getting used to. I play throug a fender mustang 150 watt v2. in order to use the sustain you need a little distortion with the amp. The craftmanship of theis guitar is perfect, came ready to paly out of the box.. a few days later i put elixir 10"s on it..had to adjust the spring screws a very little in he back, but plays amazing..there were no defects at all in the guitar, packaging was top notch. This is my 3rd schecter guitar and for the money it doesnt get any better. The clean tone is very nice also..I can make this guitar sound like a gibson, fender strat, tele insane rock and metal. A7X solos are crystal clear on this guitar.. Once again i play through a fender mustang 150 watt v2.. You can download preset tones to get the tone for what you are playing. I recommend you buy this guitar.
