What we say:
Schecter’s Hellraiser collection brings together a large selection of guitar shapes and decks them out with active EMG pickups and Gothic looking cross inlays to really sell an atmospheric look to match the, quite frankly, stupendously heavy sounds that can come out of these beasts! This 8 string monster is finished in Black Cherry.
Schecter raise hell with their perennially popular C body shape. The C-8 is something of a hybrid design in that it has a familiar S-type silhouette but the chunky mahogany body, set neck and double humbuckers of classic single-cut guitars. In all honesty it's pretty much it's 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's have a lot of authority. 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 loads the 8-string Hellraiser guitar with a pair of EMG-808 active humbucker pickups featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils that beef tones from the Low strings while providing a more responsive, super tight overall sound. The extended scale C-8 is reinforced with dual graphite rods for tuning and neck stability. Appointments include gothic cross inlays, abalone body binding, and black chrome hardware.
