No I think we're all confused.

Although, in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter. If he's happy who cares?

I usually go with metal strings, but whatever works for you is good.

I bought it because I thought it sounded fantastic. Is there some law against what genres you can play with EMG pickups?

Yes. But since you're a hell raiser it all works out.

I directly compared a les paul studio and the schecter for hours before reaching my decision. The Schecter all around sounded better. To my ears anyways.

Also, I had two defective Les paul studios within the last month that I had to send back. Done with Gibby and their shitty QC.

Realize, we aren't messing with you because you bought a Schecter (guitars which I mostly like overall), but because you made a "What strings?" thread. The Hellraiser is just a convenient avenue to poke fun at you.

Is the hellraiser regarded as a bad guitar or what?

No, but the name is at least slightly laughable.

The name and gaudy abalone make it a joke. The actual construction of the guitar and the specs are rock solid.

I think the name does it more than anything though. The LTD EC-1000 is basically the same guitar, but no one seems to make fun of it.

Do you think it's a good guitar? If you do, it is a good guitar.

I personally don't like Schecters in general, i think they are generic and look horrible, but my opinion doesn't make any difference.

I personally love Schecters, and the price I got mine for was a bargain.

TS I have the exact one you are asking about and it is great, but I definitely would have looked elsewhere if I was playing pop punk. That said, if you like it then there is no problem.

I like D'Addario 10-52 strings that is just my opinion. I have them on my blackjack.

No.

It's not as subdued style-wise as some folks seem to think guitars 'should' be, but it's a damn solid guitar.

I bought one a couple of years back, and just recently picked up one for my oldest boy because he fell in love with mine. I've got way too many guitars on the wall, and that's the one he likes best.

Of course I got mine for $350 with hardcase in 'near new' condition and we got his for $375 with a gig bag, also in near-new...at those prices it's hard to complain much! Both are the C1-FR, for reference.

As noted elsewhere, don't let anyone else tell you if YOUR guitar is a 'good' guitar or not. If it works for you and you like it, it's a good guitar. Make, model, price, color, style etc. are all secondary to the equation. As an example, I've got one of the cheapest versions of the EBMM made (A Sterling SUB Silo3) and it's one of the 'best' guitars for me that I've ever owned. It's not the most expensive, nor I suspect are the electronics or woods used even close to equal of others that I own, but there's something about it that just fits me perfectly, that makes me enjoy playing it more. I can live with that.

I think they could have gone another direction with the name and had less backlash, although the abalone binding doesn't help at all. My C-1 Classic has the same reaction from most folks, love it or hate it. It's one of my favorite guitars for the reasons mentioned above.

King Neptune do you regularly change your strings? If so may I suggest trying a set of Ernie Balls. Elixirs are great, but fairly steep if you're still finding what strings you like.

Providing you're using standard tuning, which I'm guessing you are, try a set of Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys. Take note of the string gauges, and decide for yourself if they are just right for you. The Regular Slinkys are the strings I use, mostly because they're so easy to get. But talk to your local guitar shop crew and try a few brands, it's all a matter of preference.

No, in this case he's right. There are dozens (if not hundreds) of 'what strings' threads available if one searches. So many in point of fact that they are expressly forbidden in some of the forums.
