OVERVIEW

An electric guitar that must be reckoned with…

The Schecter Hellraiser Solo-6 lives up to its name completely. The Hellraiser 6 was designed for loud, heavy metal music. Just a few power chords on the Hellraiser and you will know that no other tonewood conveys dark tones like solid mahogany. The 3-piece set mahogany neck with an Ultra Access heel design gives you total access to the 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. Fitted with an EMG Active 81TW Dual Mode humbucker/single-coil pickup in the bridge position and an EMG 89 Active humbucker/single-coil Alnico pickup in the neck position, the Schecter Hellraiser Solo-6 gives you an amazing sound palette to work with. Through-the-body string routing gives you even more sustain. Sweet aesthetic touches include gothic cross fingerboard inlays, abalone binding, and black chrome hardware.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

a couple years ago i played one of these at guitar center. since then ive wanted my own. and now i do. its beautiful. pictures do not match up to pulling out of that box in direct sunlight. its a solid, heavy, comfy, natural guitar. a little thick with the neck but i like it and not as bad as a les paul. it sounds amazing too. the coil tapped emgs let you do ANYTHING with this guitar. incredibly versitile. a good pluss, is that the battery cover has no screws so you dont worry about stripping out the wood. its a quick, easy change. for the price, you WILL NOT beat this guitar. no gibson, fender, or esp will come anywhere near this. the ONLY bad thing, is that the 22-24th frets are a little tough to reach with the pinky but they dont get used all that much. its still very good for soloing, but this is the perfect rythym guitar. a must buy. i am fully satisfied and wont be looking to buy a guitar for a very long time

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

Just got one of these on a trade its my first schecter and i am impressed, make sure you have it set up for the action you like before you truly judge this guitar,I would say the neck quality is a little less then a LTD 1000 or 600 series but thats me it is a awsome guitar and screams..

Best deal on the face of the Earth

By Anonymous

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is the best deal out there at the moment, it can easily hand with top of the line guitars, if someone offered me a $4,000 les pual for this guitar I would be like, in your dreams dude. Basically if you don't like this guitar after you buy it your looking at spending over $4,000, because that is what it would take to beat this incredible guitar!!!!!!!!!!

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

I have bought many guitars, most being Les Pauls. I have had Gibson and Epiphone but this guitar beats them both. It looks so classy in the white finish with black hardware. It has more frets and the coil tapped PUs are a great feature since I love playing John Mayer when I'm not playing metal. This guitar is a work horse no doubt about it. It feels so solid and more comfortable than a Les Paul and IMO has an AMAZING tone for ANYTHING.

Awsome Metal Guitar

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

First off let me say this is the most b-e-a-utiful guitar i have ever owned...The black cherry body and the awe inspiring inlays are amazingNow that first review say that is sounds like the knobs are turned down... yes it does have a bit of a weaker tone to it... but, that is not a bad thingon other guitars i would get the gain right so than when im doing a lot of palm mutes in a riff it would be powerful... but then as soon as i hit an open chord it would be too much.. or vise versa and my riff would sound weakon this guitar it an even balance when you get the gain set it just works for everything and the tap coils are awesome... i dont use the bridge in sigle coil mode all that often but the neck pickup in single coil on clean with a little reverb AWESOME

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

    After several bad experiences with two epiphone models I opted for the Hellraiser solo 6 as a replacement. First off right out of the box it was flawless. I could not even find one fiber scratch! The guys at schecter personally inspect every guitar after production and fix any mistakes before sending it to the dealers. You can watch this on youtube. The weight of this guitar is nice, not too heavy not too light that the headstock drops when I let go. The look of the black cherry is absolutely beautiful. The construction is rock solid and the hardware is well made. The tuners actually hold the tune rather well for schecters own brand of locking machines. The sound is amazingly warm and deep. The pickups provide a great clean tone when tapped but do lack some volume when split. As for using distortion on humbucking mode its killer! The neck is a bit chunkier than I am used to but I really don't mind as it is very well contoured and actually quite comfortable. It does have a very thick finish on the neck which I satined with some scotch brite pads. Silky smooth now and whether you believe it or not pretty fast. And unlike most les paul styles the access to the upper frets is unhindered. I honestly can't find anything to complain about this guitar its a winner and hands down the best guitar I have ever owned. I never thought about giving it a try until I played one in a shop. It blew me away with the sound quality and looks. I definitely recommend this axe to anyone who wants a top of the line guitar for a mid range price tag.

    Amazing Guitar!!!

    By TG-1QUJq

    from Vermont

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

    Hear's the deal, if you are looking for the holy grail of guit-fiddles with super tone and sweet access to your upper frets all wrapped in a sexy package with locking tuners, EMGs, gothic cross inlays, coil taps, TUSQ nut, this axe is for you! It says Hellraiser on it but it feels and plays like it was made in heaven. I've played guitars costing over 4X as much and I would not trade my Solo 6 for any of them. This baby shreads with the best of them and it lays down some blues tones that make me want to typing right now and grab that axe and jam.

    schecter hellraiser in black cherry

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

    beauiful aesthetically and very solid feeling. To me this is a les paul possessed by satan. Very full tone, HEAVY FOR RHYTHM, versatility with taps can produce beautiful midrange clear high solos as well. Basically I highly recommend this guitar and my other one is a sl1 usa jackson soloist and the 2 pair nicely.

    Bad ASS!!

    By thomas dunn

    from kentucky

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar especially for the price plays like high end gibsons and esps.
    the pickups are amazing. the locking tuners make string changing easy as can be. great fret access. the neck is a bit chunky to some ppl, but i love it im a lil ole school about necks anyways lol. honestly i wont get another guitar untill i get a custom desingn made. its still going to have the tw pickups lol.
    only giving an 8 because one of my nobs hex screws is striped out, but no biggie just tighten it down till i can replace it.

    Fantastic Guitar

    By kinderfall1

    from NC

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Solo-6 Electric Guitar:

    I am really not a the kind of guy that knows everything about guitars. All i can say is that this guitar sounds great, plays great, and the cost is great. If you were to spend 750 dollars on anything musical, this would be it.
