Extreme. Ebony is nicer and the binding isn't the horrific abalone shit Schecter loves.

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.

Matter of preference, really. A bit brighter (but that's a good thing, because the all-mahogany ones seem a bit dark to me) than the normal Hellraiser.
