Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 Passive Electric Guitar:

Took a chance and bought this as a stupid deal of the day, So glad I did as I've had this for over 2 months now and it has become my favorite go to guitar, I own 7, some costing way more. This was perfectly set-up right out of the box, stays in tune very well and sounds great. The finish is absolutely gorgeous. The only thing I changed was after about a week of playing it was I put Super Slinky 9's on it (I prefer 9s on most of mine) now its perfect!! Would buy again without hesitation….

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 Passive Electric Guitar:

    I was looking for a less expensive guitar to just play with some drop tuning. As it turns out this is a really good guitar. I am very picky when it comes to guitars So I inspected this thing thoroughly after unboxing. Absolutely flawless..I couldn't believe I found nothing wrong, save intonation on 2 of the strings. The pickups are better than expected. At the price point I expected very muddy pickups but these are quite articulate and have a pretty good clean tone to them. Not on the level of a Duncan or whatever but good all the same. As far as drop tuning, I have only dropped to C# but so far so good. This definitely a rock/metal kind of guitar for sure. I may change the pickups out but not yet. I am not going to say this is as good as my Les Paul Standard or PRS Custom 24 but it is better than several guitars I have tried at twice the price.

      Perfect right of the box, everything was smooth and functioning. All I did was put on a new set of D addario NYXL'S and this thing sings and roars!
