The Schecter Hellraiser C-1 is back with a mean new limited edition finish that is sure to turn heads on stage. Finished in what they are calling 'dragonburst' Schecter have really knocked it out of the park with this killer metal machine.
Same Quality Build
If you have ever got your hands on any of the Schecter Hellraiser models you will know just how great these guitars sound and feel. The mahogany body topped with flamed maple and the mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard all come together to give this guitar its own sound.
They haven't just gone and chucked all of these parts together and hoped for the best. Schecter know how to get the most out of any guitar and this is no different.
With a chunky low rumble coming from the mahogany that moves the stage when you are playing heavy palm muted rhythms. Plus thanks to the maple top you get a a lot of attack in the midrange which helps you pop out the mix on single note lines and licks.
Its not all been done for tonal reasons though. The strong mahogany neck has been carved down to their Thin 'C' shape with an ultra access cutaway so you can really dig in to those higher frets without an annoying neck joint in the way.
Schecter have been building guitars for some of the worlds greatest artists for years now so you can say they have an ear for sweet metal tone. It was that knowledge that let them develop their new Brimstone pickups and the rest of the range.
The Brimstone bridge pickup has been rated at 20k ohms which will really push your amplifier to a new level of drive. It has been designed to keep as much clarity as possible even when put through the most insane of high gain guitar amplifiers so your signal stays crisp and clear with great note definition no matter your style.
The neck version of this pickup doesn't have quite the same power rated at 11k which makes it perfect for solos and clean sections where you want a smoother sound. You can even get some great crunch tones out of this pickup by just rolling back a bit on the volume control.
