Frequently Asked Questions about Schecter Hellraiser

Question: What is the difference between the Schecter Hellraiser and the Hellraiser Hybrid ranges?
The Hellraiser Hybrid range is a mix of Hellraiser and SLS features. Essentially a Hellraiser Hybrid is a Hellraiser guitar with the slim neck profile and side dots of an SLS guitar and some very cool looking Carbon Fibre binding.
Question: Can I get an 8 string Hellraiser guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo?
Yes indeed you can! There aren't many 8 string guitars out there with a Floyd Rose tremolo so this is rather special. Just look for the Schecter C-8 FR model.
Question: What is different about the Hellraiser Passive range?
The difference is in the pickup models. The Hellraiser range has active pickups whereas the Hellraiser Passive range has a set of Schecter's USA made Brimstone passive pickups. Finishes between the two ranges may vary but apart form that, the two ranges are the same.
Question: What body shapes are available in the Hellraiser series?
The Schecter Hellraiser range lets you choose between the C-1 and the Solo-II body tshapes, each with a multitude of bridge and finish options.
Question: Do Schecter Hellraiser guitars come in 7 or 8 string versions?
Schecter Hellraiser guitars actually come in both 7 and 8 stirng versions! Not only that, you can have both with a hardtail or a Floyd Rose tremolo! This level of choice is above what most guitar brands offer.
