Every time I pull this guitar out I get a similar response. "Whoa! nice guitar!". Indeed it is beautiful. The Black Cherry finish on my Schecter Hellraiser Tempest is flawless. It lookes much better than the pictures. It?s a very solid guitar with great features, compares to a Gibson Les Paul. The body is unique and very appealing. It will fit well on any stage but obviously is geared to the rock/metal enthusiast. The black pearl gothic cross inlays are very subtle, yet bold. The 5 ply binding with abalone core rounds out this guitar and brings out the beauty of this beast. Mine was setup nearly perfect. The frets are all nicely polished and action is low with no buzzing. Bending is smooth in all positions. This guitar is fairly compact but chunky. It's a bit on the heavy side, typical of Les Paul style bodies, but it is very comfortable to play. I tried several others around the same price and believe I got the most bang for my buck. This guitar is a gem amongst hell raisers.
Ive had this guitar for about 6months and its straight up awesome! with the set neck, string through design and active emg, its an amazing guitar, definately worth every penny, and dont think just cause its a Schecter all its good for is metal, i dont even play metal and it does everything ive asked it to do. It compares to anything Gibson has for 1/2 the price! how can ya beat that? schecter really did well when they made the Schecter Tempest Hellraiser
First off, this guitar looks amazing. The finish is very nice and the cross inlays add alittle to this beast. Tone wise, this guitar is kick'n. 4 knobs 2 vol, 2 tone, plus coil tapping makes this guitar awesome. Not to mention, it is capable of having the killswitch, but the EMGs don't make any noise in the first place. It stays in tune genrally well. No complaits. It's basically a Les Paul but with mean looks and active pickups. Great guitar for metal and also cleans up nicely.
I just got this guitar yesterday but every time I look at it it looks better and better. The sustain is amazing and it never goes out of tune. It says EMG Active 81/60A but mine came with a EMG 89 and a EMG 81tw. The volume pots are both push/pull so the pickups both switch to single coils and any setting you have this thing on it sounds amazing. As soon as it got here I threw some schaller strap locks on it and a set of elixir anti rust nanoweb heavy strings and it blows my mind. Definetly worth the cash.
Schecter guitars hands down are simply awesome. I bought this used but it was like new. How they get all of this hardware onto a guitar that is crafted as well as this I have no idea. But this is my 2nd Schecter guitar and certainly not my last.
When I bought mine, I got an 07, which at first I was disappointed with, no coil tapping. But once I got to adjusting and setting the guitar up, the 60a is such a beautiful pick up. Matchhing it with the 81 gives you a lot of versatility, I love it. You don't need coil tapping with the combo of 81/60a. This guitar is worth every penny, gives you the same quality and features as guitars that cost waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy more. Go schecter.
This is my favorite guitar. It's got great tone, and insanely versatile. The only reason I'm saying to be careful is because of a couple reasons. First, this guitar is sold with EMG 81 TW and 89 pickups, not complaining though. Second, if you're looking for that incredible ultra-access neck-thru-like design? This is not it. It's just a regular set neck. Still awesome, I was just disapointed. That's the only reason I give it a 4.5 on features. Don't get me wrong, this is still an amazing guitar. Anyone who plays metal and likes looking cool should buy this.
