What is the best guitar I could buy for <$800, equipped with active EMG 81/85 and original FR?

I've been looking at the Schecter Hellraiser FR, but anyone have other suggestions? I play mostly death metal
schecter c-1 hellraiser fr...about 750$

i'm pretty sure the hellraiser FR is the only option.

Btw, I don't spell it doughnut, because that spells duff-nut.
ESP MH400 with a trem swap should run you the same price as a Hellraiser FR
Both have basically the same parts. I've played the Hellraiser but the MH400 I played was pretty good. It all depends on personal preference.
1992 Ibanez S540 sol
1988? Kramer Pacer Mutt
I've been looking at a lot of guitars, and as far as I could tell, the schecter hellraiser FR is the ONLY guitar with active EMG and original floyd rose for <800...most guitars of <800 have licensed stuff. I just wanted to make sure that I didn't miss anything lol. I already have a schecter c1 classic which I love, so I know I love schecter. I'll go try out the hellraiser FR soon, thnx for the feedback guys much appreciated.

ps. I didn't expect so many people in favor of the hellraiser FR, every post here was pro hellraiser lol impressive!
