your english is fine.

the hellraiser for any metal, definately. im pretty sure the cleans would be awesome too, thats the magic of EMG's

i dont like the C1 classic much, but whatever the case, its not an ideal choice for playing metal. i also have a feeling that the stock pickups are quite crap

go for the Hellraiser. Very good instrument. If you do need something to rock both worlds look into a PRS.

My vote goes to the Classic.

I feel that the SH4/2 combo beats the EMG combo, since I dislike EMGs. I think they don't sound good at all IMO.

Classic. The SH2 SH4 combo can do everything EMG's can, an they can do anything the EMG's cant.

The new Hellraisers come with an EMG 81/89 coil tap set, so you should be able to get a decent clean tone out of that.

The Hellraiser

The reason - Pickups. Both great guitars, EMG combination may be better suited to the sound you're looking for (Seymour Duncan JB is bright)

And how Ur Classic compared to Ur Ibanez (actios sound ect) sory for off top

Schecter has a thicker neck and I find it easier to play than my Ibanez. It sounds muddier and lacking clarity compared to my JEM with higher gain levels. Installing a DiMarzio D-Activator in the bridge has somewhat mitigated this, but I still find the sound on my Ibanez more desirable (it's made of a different wood though - Alder, with maple/rosewood neck as opposed to all mahogany). However, I like the tone of the C-1 Classic's neck pickup (Seymour Duncan Jazz).

Action on my JEM overall is better - I can lower it significantly without fear of fret buzz where on my Schecter I have to keep it somewhat high as it tends to rattle a lot near the nut. Both have the same degree of neck bend (very slight, almost flat)
