The Schecter Hellraiser line is more than just a superbly crafted, eminently wicked series of electric guitars. The very name represents a state of mind, a way of life, and the weapon of choice one carries into battle. The Hellraiser line consists of several body types, including the Flying V-type “V” models; the Hellraiser Avenger, with it’s offset, asymmetrical twin-horn body; the Hellraiser Solo, with an offset body somewhat like a single-cut Les Paul; and, of course, the classic, ever-popular super-Strat-style “C” models, all crafted from premium tonewoods and loaded with high-end features like active EMG humbucking pickups, Floyd Rose whammy/vibrato systems, and Schecter locking tuners. Take a look at the Hellraiser Solo-6, for example, a gorgeous single-cut that’s bound to make any Les Paul fan do a double-take. Featuring the familiar mahogany body with carved top (with quilted maple cap on the Black Cherry finish model), and glued-in, or “set” neck, the Solo-6 boasts 24 extra-jumbo frets and Ultra Access neck joint, for exceptional playability all the way up the fretboard, and two full octaves of shredding madness. The Tune-O-Matic bridge and through-body string design deliver near-endless sustain, and the two active EMG humbuckers with coil-tapping deliver massive single- or dual-coil tones, for an incredible array of sonic options. Or check out the Hellraiser Special Avenger, with its totally unique twin-horn body shape that really stands out from the crowd. The tried-and-true combination of mahogany body and quilted maple top deliver plenty of deep, rich tone with just the right amount of snap, and the 24-fret, 25.5” scale length set neck is crafted from three pieces of mahogany, for maximum stability and sustain; and, of course, the dual active EMG humbuckers provide all the searing highs or massive crunch you could want. Probably the most familiar axe in the line is the Hellraiser C, available in a variety of configurations, including 6, 7, and 8-string models, lefty and right-handed versions, and even a hybrid bass-baritone drop-tune monster, the Hellraiser C-VI, specially designed to plumb the sonic depths, with a 30” scale length that is tuned one octave below standard tuning, and which can be strummed like a guitar or plucked like a bass. The neck is reinforced with dual carbon fiber rods in addition to the truss rod to ensure a lifetime of playability, and the active EMG pickups deliver all the low-down tone you’d expect from such a beast. The Hellraiser C-7 7-string also delves deep, with a 26.5” scale length and dual active EMG 707TW humbuckers with coil taps to capture every bit of tone from all seven strings, while the Hellraiser C-8 is equipped with dual EMG 808 active humbuckers to get maximum punch while still retaining tight definition from the added F# and B strings, all the way up the two-octave neck. Of course, the standard 6-string models still raise plenty of hell, like the Hellraiser FR Devil Spine, loaded with a Floyd Rose Special whammy system for plenty of dive-bombing pyrotechnics for your shredding pleasure; or the Hellraiser C-1 FR Extreme, with neck-through construction, a Floyd Rose 1000 Series whammy system, and improved Grover tuners with super-fine 18:1 gear ratio for precision tuning. Whether you’re looking to raise some hell or just shred like crazy, there’s a Schecter Hellraiser designed for you - order yours today!
