I commend you for your descriptive post, which was not vague in any way at all.

First off, what style of music are you looking to play?
Second, the bit about your supposed 25 fret guitar is irrelevant.

wtf?
1. It's completely irrelevant that you guitar has "25" frets, two humbuckers and that it's a schecter.
2. You failed to mention the most important thing: style of music
3. One generally writes a riff and builds up from there and the riff doesn't really come from scales, hence the name: riff based song.
4. I f you must: Minor/Major pentatonic or Blues scale or Dorian mode (I think it's the dorian mode-the one really close to natural minor and to minor pentatonic)

I think the Raw Power guitars look like badly painted Easter Eggs.

well, my suggestion is to develop a root to your song. Yorr building a roof before youve laid the foundation. Once you have a general rythem and chord progression to your song it should be easier to get your riff down or at least give us a starting point to help you with your riff.
