Designed to handle the hardest rock.

The Schecter Hellraiser C-7 is a 7-string black-on-black beauty of an electric guitar designed and built for rock-hard rock. The Hellraiser's set neck, 26-1/2" scale, mahogany body, and EMG 707TW pickups leave no doubt as to the C-7 guitar's metal credentials. Now you have more options that ever by activating single-coil sound from the 707TW via a push/pull tone knob. Black hardware, a gloss black finish, and abalone gothic cross markers give the Schecter C-7 a dangerous vibe. Ultra-access neck joint and extra jumbo frets make the Hellraiser C-7 easy to play anywhere on the fretboard.

Pure Beast!

If you're a metal player who likes low note and doesnt like tuning down this is your guitar! The neck is a little bigger than what you're going to be used to but its really easy to go from 6 to this 7 string. Its very good quality for a guitar under 1000$. THe playability is supreme. Plus the pick ups are awsome! And if you didnt like them there easy to replace with seymour duncans or w/e. The stock strings are even good! And it was in tune when I got it so thats always nice. Not like it matters but you can play it right outta the box. Though I lowered the action for max shreding. This is a great guitar to invest in for any type of metal. Speed Metal, Groove Metal, Death Metal, Thrash Metal, Black Metal, And plain Metal you name it. It can do it.

Neck is fast and soft. The thing screams, you can pinch harmonic for ever on mid dist, even on clean.I gave it 4.0 for features because I'd like a locking trem. The coilsplit is something I hardly ever use, found it cool for clean stuff, which I hardly ever do with my band heh.Either way if you look a bit more I'm sure you can get something better for the price, if you don't mind paying the extra buck get this one.


Amazing Guitar

By Schecteribanez1

I've had it for about 2 weeks. It's perfectly formed, has a fast neck, nice cutaway, and Great EMG's. I'm not a huge fan of the coil-tap, but hey, it works just fine. I recommend this to anyone wanting an affordable 7 string.


Good Guitar but...

By Anonymous

This guitar sounds amazing I've had it for 2 years now and with the right amp you can have that bass from the 7th string shake the house. One of the problems I have had is fret buzz up around the 14th fret. That and my neck is cracking where it meets the body. That might have something to do with my changing from drop A to standard tuning daily though. This is a very good guitar as is I bought it at the new price is a lot better since people dont use 7 strings as much now days.


C-7 Hellraiser

By Mikexdeath

from PA

I just recently got this guitar for christmas.Acoustically this guitar is amazing it can sustain a note for an unbelievable amount of time, and when looking for a good guitar this is crucial. Along with its active pickups and thru-neck this guitar has an awesome sound. The only slight disadvantage of this guitar is the size of its neck, it does increase the difficulty of playing due to its extended size. However, the extended size is definitely worth the 7th string.

this guitar is amazing. it looks and sounds great for a great price considering what it is. my only problem is that the actives r a one trick pony. they're great for metal but that's all they're good for. i would suggest replacing with DiMarzio BLAZE himbuckers.

Overall, I have been satisfied with this guitar. The quality is amazing, it is comparable to any Fender or Gibson, but is much more affordable. The neck is very comfortable, which can be an issue with seven string guitars, but this one is very nice.


Great guitar

By Morgan-l.XcI

I had played this guitar at Guitar Center and I absolutely hated it. I went a few towns over and found another one. It was set up better and I played with a much better amp. My favorite thing is the coil tap on the pickups. The pickups remain clear and beefy which is great for playing what I do. I'm used to an Ibanez RG7321 which I'm attatched to so this guitar is different but I really do like it. Simple controls and set up. I would actually like 2 tone controls on at least 1 seven string. The extended scale is great for playing how low I do with really heavy strings(.13-.70 in EADGCEA). Fast neck and good for riffing and my personal shred style. I plan to own this one day. Great guitar although ebony would have been better for the fingerboard it's still worth it.
