I checked the search bar but there was exactly what I wanted.

Basically I found 2 blemished schecters online from a legitimate looking seller. Now these schecters only have a small finish discolouration in a spot or two which I can deal with. The problem is that the hellrasier C-1 FR says made in china on the back and the Hellrasier solo 6 says made in Indonesia? Now this seller has other schecter B-stocks made in south korea so I was just wondering is there is any quality difference between the ones made in korea and china and most importantly or the non korean ones legitimate?

Thanks in advance.

I may have to go back and edit this later... But I was under the impression that all Hellraisers, Classic's and other higher end Schecters were MIK. I know my Classic is MIK and its great in quality. Korea tends to be one of the best Asian countries for mid range guitars (besides Japan of course) while China and Indonesia tend to be lower end and lower quality.

I'm pretty sure schecters are currently made in korea...unless you get a custom one.. then i think it's united states

I'm not selling them.... That rule applies to listing your own merchandise as far as I know. Tons of people link to ebay to ask if certain items are legit.

What that dealer said has me interested...I just emailed Schecter asking for more info about mine. But it seems silly that different finishes would require entirely different factories to construct. If White Hellraisers are all from China then everyone would just go for the green for superior quality from S.K.

Actually, now that I think about it you don't really see many Green Hellraisers, other than prototypes from DCGLand.

I also emailed schecter directly but have received no reply as of yet. I'm really curious to find out if thereis really a difference between the korean and chinese models as they both go through the same quality control in the USA.

I had a Schecter C-1 Hellrasier FR and it was a Korea made one.

The thing is, in a band like chickenfoot, think of the JSX as a submarine and the Marshall as a plane. No matter how good the submarine is, it might be the perfect submarine, if you need a plane, a submarine ain't gonna do it for you.

It is brilliant. Better than any Ibanez (Including Prestige) or ESP LTD that I have played.

I got the same impression when I picked a few up. Except for the schecter C-1 classic which didnt feel as good as the others for some bizarre reason. Looked amazing but didnt feel as good.

No the guitar was built just as well it was completely my own personal tastes. There definitely isn't any thing wrong with that guitar.
