Schecter Hellraiser C-7 Gloss Black
Manufacturer's ID: SCH1789
What we say:
Schecter’s Hellraiser collection brings together a selection of guitar shapes and decks them out with active EMG pickups, a ton of abalone and Gothic looking cross inlays to really sell an atmospheric look that matches the, quite frankly, stupendously heavy sounds that can come out of these beasts!
The C-7 is something of a hybrid design in that it has a familiar S-type silhouette but with the chunky arched mahogany body, set neck and double humbuckers of classic single-cut guitars. In all honesty it's pretty much its own beast: the girth of the mahogany gives a thick, chewy midrange whilst the super-flat fingerboard and slim neck make playing tight rhythms and complex leads easy and fun!
Sonically, those EMG 707TW's have a lot of authority. You get a ton of output that still has balance and finesse with a very low noise factor. There is a reason these are considered industry standard for 7 string heaviness.
It's clear that this guitar was built mainly to rock and it frankly excels at this! This is a rugged, well-appointed piece of guitar with a lot of finesse and quality that will take the rigours of the road in its stride.

- Schecter Locking
Schecter Locking Tuners feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable knobs, threaded peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peg hole.
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.
- EMG Active 707tw
This coil tappable 707 has been leading the pack of 7-string guitar pickups since its debut in 2001. Before this model was introduced, existing 7-string pickups sounded muddy and dull on the low B string, especially when trying to hit artificial and natural harmonics, but the 707 eliminated all those problems. Featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils we were able to beef up that Low B tone and at the same time provide a more responsive super tight overall sound.
- 3-pc Mahogany
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.
- TonePros TOM Bridge w/Thru Body
TonePros components complete your instrument! Your bridge and tailpiece will be locked down and will not move or "wiggle" at all. With this design, even play or movement in the threads is reduced so that when you adjust your action and intonation, it is set and solid. Which improves your sustain and tonal qualities, makes harmonics "jump" out of your guitar, and more stable tuning.
