OVERVIEW

Scorching tone with plenty of style.

The Schecter Hellraiser Sunset FR is an electric guitar that features an original Floyd Rose tremolo system and delivers tones sure to please any metal player. This Hellraiser guitar'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 has 24 extra-jumbo frets and gothic cross inlays for a dark, sinister look. Active EMG 81TW and 89 pickups deliver crushing electric guitar tone. Now you have more options than ever by activating single-coil sounds via a push/pull tone knob.

The Original Floyd Rose tremolo bridge will keep you dive bombing the Sunset FR Hellraiser all night long. The binding has been specifically chosen to complement the finish. Grover tuners, reverse headstock and black chrome hardware round out the Schecter Hellraiser Sunset FR's killer look. Black Cherry finish has a quilted maple top.

Nothing short of AWESOME!!!

By tojam

from Virginia

All I can really say is WOW!!! I have owned alot of guitars in my time and I must say this on takes the cake and pie too. First off an origional Floyd Rose for under $1000, unheard of! and active EMG's, the top of the line line ones too WOW! I would have easily paid twice what this guitar is selling for, and for what it is equiped with. The action is great and the sustain for a floating tremelo guitar is unrivled by any other guitar I have ever played. This baby is a little on the heavy side compared to many other guitars of this style and the neck is just a bit thicker than a wizard II of quartersawn neck but small potatoes for the overall performance of this guitar. This is one guitar that i'm shure I'll never sell it's great.

Absolutely amazing. Beyond satisfied.

Just got this guitar in today. By far the best sounding and best playing guitar I have ever owned. The tone is extraordinarily diverse: both clean and overdriven tones are crisp, clear, and sunstain is great, regardless of the quality of your amp. She plays like a dream and can handle divebombs or squeals you inflict on her without going even slightly out of tune. Overall, this guitar is worth your money and much, much more.

WHOA

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I played this guitar in a music shop and amazed me. It looked amazing, the EMGs sounded heavy with gain and great on a clean channel I even got some really good blues tones out of em. The mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard made playing this guitar very easy and the mahogany body with set thru neck joint gave this guitar a big a heavy sound and loads of sustain. The coil taps are a great feature and for the price your getting a great guitar I mean an original floyd come on?

Very versatile guitar

I've been shopping for an aggressive guitar to give me some of the sounds my strat won't make. This guitar is definitely delivering on that front. The quality is higher than I expected, and the guitar sounds great. I didn't like the C-1 Hellraiser because I don't care for archtops. I was very excited when they announced this guitar, and it isn't disappointing.
