What we say:
Schecter’s Hellraiser collection brings together a selection of guitar shapes and decks them out with active EMG pickups (one in this case due to the Sustainiac), 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 FR Sustainiac 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, the EMG 81-7 has a lot of authority. You get a ton of output that still has balance and finesse with a very low noise factor. The Sustainiac is a whole new universe of sound! Infinite sustain with harmonic overtones that can also work with chords? Wow! Plus you don't need to compromise your right hand technique by holding on to any devices, it's all inside the guitar. This will really open up your playing like nothing you're tried before.
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.
