OVERVIEW

A slaying machine with all the compulsory tools of destruction.

The 9-string Schecter Hellraiser C-9 Electric Guitar is designed and built for rock-hard rock. The Hellraiser's set neck, 28" scale, mahogany body, and EMG 909 humbuckers leave no doubt as to the C-9 guitar's metal credentials. Now you have more options than ever with nine strings to go as low as you want. Black hardware, a gloss finish and abalone gothic cross markers give the Schecter C-9 a dangerous vibe. Ultra-access neck joint and extra jumbo frets make the Hellraiser C-9 easy to play anywhere on the fretboard.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-9 Electric Guitar:

    I was leery about the guitar being Korean, but all my concerns went out the window when I pulled it out of the box. I have purchased guitars costing as much as $2400, and the build quality, fit, and finish on this one is as good as those, if not better. I hooked it up to my Fender amp through my pedal board and I am able to get any tone from a nearly classical clean, to a 60's vintage feel, to 80's hair bands, all the way through to modern metal, and anything in between. This guitar is so versatile, I haven't picked up any of my other instruments since I bought it. The neck is very accessible and narrow for being a 9-string, but not so narrow that your fingers rest on neighboring strings; the perfect width. The scale may be 28", but bending is still easy as pie, and butter smooth. BUY THIS GUITAR, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!!

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser C-9 Electric Guitar:

      It sounds great and is a blast to play. It's much easier to play than you would think. It comes with Ernie Ball strings, which I quickly discovered I do not like. I'm used to having my guitars tuned down to C, so I changed the 6 high strings to D'Addario EXL115 (.011, etc). That's what I'm used to playing on, and I was much happier with how it sounded after I changed the 6 high strings. I didn't bother changing the 3 low strings. I've got it tuned from low to high: A, D, G, C, F, Bb, Eb, G, C. Yes the low A string borders on ridiculous, but I was expecting that. I think it's a great instrument, especially for the price. I'm completely happy with my purchase.
