    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.

        Amazing guitar. Pick ups are truly awesome. Bought this (in white) for my son based on previous reviews of this product. It was in used, but perfect, condition and came exactly as described. We live in the UK and this was a first for using Musician friend; will strongly recommend to others - service was fantastic. Purchasing to delivery was 8 days. Thank you

          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.

            Normally I don't name my Guitar's, but everything about this Guitar is larger than life, The Beast...
            The guitar is built like a tank, the body is heavy but nice, the neck is fairly thick but very comfortable, fast and precise... Even with my medium/small hands find it very comfortable, and pleasing to play...
            The tone is awesome, heavy but very clear... I can't say anything bad about this Guitar, in fact I would consider it a masterpiece... I have several Schecters and have never been disappointed, they have always exceeded my expectations...

                  The craftsmanship on this guitar is outstanding.
                  I dropped tuned it with a thicker gauge and wow, This guitar sounds like a beast. Solid gain with mediocre cleans. (This baby wasnt built for cleans)It's heavier than the rest of the guitars in my collection but its's not a problem. SOLID GUITAR FOR A GOOD PRICE.

                  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

                  Truly amazing guitar, the active pickups really give this guitar a great sound distorted or clean. the only thing I don't care for is the thickness of the neck.

                  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.

                  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.
