Tryng to decide between a Schecter Damien Elite FR or a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 fr, the damien elite has emg 81 and 85 the hellraiser has 81 tw and 89 tw , I like the damien elite in see through black alot.... Would there be a big difference?

Also might be willing to take recommendations on some other guitars

Would prefer to stay around the damien elite fr price, but I guess will see.

hellraiser has an OFR (according to specs), i believe the fr special is prone to long-term wear. additionally, the damien is a bolt-on, which isn't a problem at higher qualities, but a lot of companies like schecter tend to skimp the quality a bit on bolt-on models and emphasize their set/neck-thru lines.

do you absolutely need a floyd rose? unless you have experience with them, they're honestly more trouble than they're worth unless you plan on a lot of slayer solos or something.

I would go for the Hellraiser the pickups are good, fast neck, not to heavy, coil taps are great.

18V mod the EMGs and the pickups are decent on both of them
