Need to make a decision, C1+ or Hellraiser. I play metal so the Hellraiser seems the choice due to the EMG's. Are the pickups the only difference between these guitars (EMG's vs SD's)? And if so, what would EMG's give me that SD's would not, or vice versa?
SD's are more versatile
EMG's are only good with a darkly voiced high gain tube amp.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
The C1+ has better pups, IMO. Despite some cosmetic differences, they are pretty much the same guitars
Peavey XXX combo *upgraded screen resistors, Tung-Sol's, and 6L6's*
Schecter Syn Std. * modded, scalloped, and worn*
Schecter C-1 Elite *still sexy*
Ibanez AEL 12-string

I'm looking to get a B52 AT-112, so would EMG's be the way to go?
they will both sound good with that amp

Come to think of it, my penis should've listened to more death metal.

So my question is. Can Pre-Cum fluid pass through my underwear, my jeans, onto and through her jeans, through her underwear, and impregnate her?
IMO, the C-1 Classic is better than both of them, but between those I'd choose the Hellraiser because the C-1 Plus doesn't have real Duncans.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

if scale is an issue for you be aware that the c1+ has a 24.75 and the hellraiser has a 25.5

its really up to you if you have the ability to play both go with which one feels best to you.
both are very capable in the metal genre.

personally i'd go Hellraiser, but that's just me.
