No but I really really want to. Oddly enough i'm either gonna get that or an Epi LP Custom.

I too would be interested in seeing what people say about it, and do the EMG pickups still make it ok for blues and classic rock?

Somewhere in a concert hall in Sweden, you have just caused Yngwie Malmsteen physical pain. You also caused him to catch on fire.

I like the normal shape and V versions but I guess to each his own but I guess if you could get your hands on a normal hellraiser it would be more or less the same thing tone and neck wise but if you like the way they LP body shape feels and you like the normal hellraiser go for it

i got the c7 jeff loomis signature. it is quite delicious!


yeah I have heard that the loomis is one of the best 7 stringers around I haven't had the chance to play one how do you think it compares to the C7 seeing as they are about the same price

so whats the difference between the c1 and the solo 6. The Solo 6is more just for metal? Id like one that could bust out nice clean tones as well
#8

The tone of the active pick-ups are good for metal, rock and blues but not so good for pure cleans.

It has coil splitters tho, and if you YouTube "Hellraiser Solo 6 Clean" there is a vid demonstrating it's clean-ness.

I played one at GC, all in all, its freakin NIIICE! at first i was skeptical how i would like the arrangement of the knobs but you can grab them quickly. If your looking into buying it i highly recommend it, i like it more than ltd ecs

i love my solo 6. i highly recommend it. for a while i was thinking about which new guitar to get and then i played this one and it was amazing. i think that its the best guitar for the price for my style of music.

I tried it like a week after it came out in NAMM (the local dealers are awesome). One of the best guitar tones I've ever heard for metal. Only thing that let me down was the neck was quite thick. If it was like a Hellraiser C1 neck then that would become the ultimate Metal Machine!

Tried both C7 and Loomis 7. IMO the Loomis is better. The difference are the woods and the Loomis has a thinner neck (which is killer!)

I haven't played that specific Solo 6, but the ones I have played have been very nice.

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.
