Reading through this forum, I think I saw that at least one person here has one of these. I'm in the market for a new guitar and this one caught my attention today. Didn't have a chance to play it yet, but I'll be doing so within the next few days.

I believe both the body and neck are mahogany. It comes with an original Floyd Rose and EMG pickups. Cost is $899. Should I be concerned about it being made in Korea? Any opinions on this guitar would be appreciated.

Some great guitars come out of Japan, Korea, even Indonesia (LTDs are made there) and China. As long as you're playing it first I wouldn't worry :tup:

Bought the bass version of that guitar...I couldn't be happier with it!

Quality piece.

Why are guitarists so smug on where a guitar is made?

Because when the manufacturing first went to Asia, none of them knew how to make guitars and as a result they all fucking sucked.

My bass isn't a Hellraiser, it's an Omen....guess they name their guitars after horror movies.

Abalone inlays and binding on the body and headstock:

Image

Image

Body and (set) neck are mahogany. Body has a quilted maple top. The fingerboard is rosewood. The pickups are EMG 81/89 and both can switch between humbucking and single coil. This is my first experience with active pickups and I'm really liking the variety of tones I can get out of these. The tuners are by Grover. Pretty impressive for only being seven fiddy.

I think I got exactly what I was looking for. I'm really happy with it. :tup:

The hellraisers are nice. I just bought an Omen last week (couldn't afford the hellraiser) and I'm loving it. The stock pickups are shit, but I swapped out the bridge pickup for an EMG-hz.

That's purling, not binding. But it looks good regardless. I have always liked schecters.

Levi i have the Hellraiser C-7 that same exact finish (black cherry) but with a fixed string-thru bridge and EMG's.
Gorgeous guitar


Got no pics of it, but heres some of my last purchase, Fender Strat.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=38287
I'm prolly through buying any more musical equipment. Might even get rid of the Schecter down the road.

I play a Schecter Omen-6 (a dual coil) and I'm very happy with it.. got it used for $200. But I don't know about this one. I guess the Floyd Rose somewhat explains the price.

I think they've pretty much always been produced overseas...Sick guitar though...I approve. :tup:

I was playing this yesterday and actually like it more than the Ibanez RGs. $800, too bad I need that money for college.

I can build you a strat with emg's and a maple neck. By jackson I am assuming you mean there are no contours to it, which would actually be much more simple.

I should have spent the extra money and bought one with a floyd rose, but I didn't feel like putting up with the bullshit when it comes to changing strings, you still playing this guitar much Levi?

Yes, and I love it. :tup: My next guitar will probably have a fixed bridge (so I can change tunings more easily), but I can't imagine not having the versatility that comes with a bridge like the Floyd.

I'm really impressed with how good Schecter instruments are for the price. I have a Stiletto and I like the tone better than my Bongo for most things.
