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.
Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo bridge offers stable tuning no matter how hard you dive. Binding specifically chosen to complement the finish, Schecter 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
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 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.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-1 with Floyd Rose Sustainiac Electric Guitar:
I already own a Jackson DK Sustainiac and wanted another model. Being a big Schecter guy I took the plunge on this model. The guitar looks gorgeous,fit & finish is perfect as was the factory setup. That's where the good times ended. After plugging in and engaging the Sustainiac pickup all h3ll broke loose. The screech / squeal was ear splitting and led my dog to run and hide in another room! Also every control knob was binding and needed adjustment. Being familiar with the Sustainiac system I broke out the tools and made some adjustments to the unit which was never set correctly from the factory. It was laughable how far off it was! I also loosened and raised the volume / tone / gain knobs which remedied the binding. Had someone inexperienced received this guitar I guarantee it would be headed back to Musicians Friend. After the tweaks this guitar is top notch and definitely a keeper. I can't stop playing it! The tones are unreal! If you get a good one it's absolutely worth every penny! I deducted 1 star due to the issues I had. Otherwise this IS a 5 star guitar!
