hey guys....i own a schecter c-1 hellraiser...and it neck dives...so much so, that i cant play my guitar normally...the body feels lighter than the neck, which is unusual, because the body is made from mahogany...

so i have 2 questions...firstly, im wondering if any of you out there are hellraiser owners and have the same problem...

also, is there any way to fix the neck diving? thanks for your help....

I had the same problem with my COW 7. I fixed it by adding some weight in the control cavity. Luckily it has only one pickup & knob so there was plenty of room to add weight. I put in a square marble footpiece from a trophee. You need something with high density, small size and shouldn't conduct electricity.
I also tried by changing the location of the strap buttons but this didn't work out. All I ended up with was a guitar with 5 more holes in it

I had the same thing with my Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos. I took it to a guitar builder and he drilled a new hole into it. Now it's a lot better.

Also a good broad strap helps a ton!

you need a wider strap,
a leather or similar strap,
a strap pad,
and/or you strap buttons should be as far apart from each other as possible.

I have never even heard of this with a hellraiser. SG yes, Hellraiser no. Mine seems balanced as well as the classic. Sorry I know that doesn't help. Maybe you have a slick strap.
