Im thinking about getting a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR because I've been recently become more interested in Metal. My question is, would this guitar go good with my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 40w tube amp (1x12). I know this amp isn't built for the heaviest music. How do you think my amp could handle this guitar?

try using OD pedals or distortion pedals if you want metal sound..

I have a boss me-50 for distortion, I like the Schecter because it has EMG's and a FR

Emg's can push an amp pretty hard, being hi-output active pickups, as compared to say PAF's or single coils, or even something like say a duncan invader.

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.

I don't know about the EMG's, never personally had them, just played them in other guitars. But I have blackouts, and a fender amp, and I can probably say that it will give you a 70's rock-esque sound with those pickups, or even an 80's rock-esque sound. You'll probably need a pedal or some type of digital modifier to get it into metal terrority.
