Hellraiser Solo 6 E/A

http://www.schecterguitars.com/Products/Guitar/Hellraiser-Solo-6-E-A.aspx

Without clicking the link, those of you familiar with the E/A line of Schecters know these are semi-hollows. The majority of you who have read the word "Hellraiser" in a thread before knows they have quilted tops, abalone binding, gothic cross inlays and EMG 81TW/89.

So what happens when you combine the two? You get this:

Semi-hollow... not my thing.

Not EMG 81/85 combo... not my thing.

Solo-6 shape... not my thing.

It DOES have a piezo bridge pickup though... that's kinda cool.

The 89 is an 85 with a coil tap...

What's the point of having active pickups in a semi-hollow guitar?


Some jazz and funk players really dig the pristine tones on actives. Or play metal with a guitar that weighs less than the case it goes into. This is a damned versatile guitar for a very low price. I imagine it will go over well with people who want similar features in a PRS but don't have the money.

Active pickups on a hollowbody guitar that's clearly designed for metal? Feedback city. Trust Schecter to crowbar in a coil split on an active guitar which already has a piezo to boot. And all that abalone and the gothic cross inlays... I'm no traditionalist but that looks like a toy.

I like active pickups, I like semi hollows, I like single cuts and anything with a piezo interests me. But this is pretty much just an Epiphone Ultra 2 minus the EQ controls for the piezo, minus the carved top and with some less appropriate pickups.

the 89 is basically the same thing as the 85 but with a coil split......

Looks like a guitar that really doesn't know what it wants to be. It prolly sounds really good, and plays really good...but it looks awful to me. I don't think I could get myself to buy one. Plus I'm one of those blasphemers that doesn't like actives...if you like it that's cool, and if you don't that's cool too.

Not into actives (yet ), but it looks okay, though the hollow-cut-thing is kind of lame on a metal-guitar.

The options you have with sounds and stereo Y-cables and all that sound VERY expanding.

You could switch from an acoustic-ish sound straight to blues/rock/metal/whatever-the-f*ck-you-like-on-an-electric and that might be a massive advantage over switching guitars with a lame acoustic-stand (as seen with songs as The Unforgiven live). It should sound nice though, or it won't work out (obviously).

All that abalone makes me queasy. And why have they bothered with a coil tap?
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.
#15
if it works, i might grab one of these. I love playing rock and metal so the EMGs are a plus. Plus i write songs with a lot of acoustic parts so piezo bridge is a plus. Ive had a bad back since a hurt my tailbone when i was 13 so anything that makes it easier to gig is a godsend for me. Will definitely be checking it out. I love the Hellraiser series. Seriously wish i hadnt sold my C-7 :/

I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Meh, i don't like it.

I'll ignore all that abalone, and even then i can see it as a guitar trying to be too much.
The EMGs, the Fishman bride plus it being a semi-hollow?
Seems like schecter is trying to pull a gibson on us and shove this model at the people who criticize their fanboys for enjoying the same old type of guitar.

Up next: Holy series PT's and a reverse tempest?
Only time will tell.

Because it's one of Schecter's signature things. They put coil splits on everything. Half their guitars sound utterly shit with split humbuckers but they put it in there anyway.

One of the most expensive non-signature Diamond Series guitars Schecter sells.


It will be less expensive if it turns up in the chain stores. Especially is nobody buys them and they get dumped at clearance princes, which Guitar Center likes to do with exotic Schecters.

They put coil splits on everything.

That's because David Schecter invented coil taps— not that anyone playing a Schecters today gives a shit. Apparently some guy in Japan thinks all these emo kids buying Synyster sig guitars care about obscure moments in guitar history.

The abalone binding and inlays make it look a little too gaudy IMO. That'd be probably my only gripe though, it looks like a pretty solid guitar.
