Title says it all.

I wanted to try one out desperately but nobody carries ESP! Danggit!

Some people have said that the Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR is very similiar if not the same to this ESP and told me that I should try that out and I would get more or less a good idea of the MH-1000.

Any truth to this?

Sam Ash stocks ESPs and LTDs. There's one store in Springfield and then several in New York, NY. I don't know how close any of those are to you, because I don't know crap about New Jersey.

Well the necks of the Hellraiser and MH-1000 are totally different, and to me, that is a very big factor. If you like thinner necks I'd say go for the MH. The Hellraiser's neck is more of a Gibson style.

^^^yes the neck is the only real thing thats different....the mh-1000 has a wide/thin back neck..and the hellraiser has a thinner ffret board with a more round neck...i prefer the ltd neck

I heard some guy at a music store talking about how Schecters and LTDs are made in the same factory and they are the same guitars except the headstock.

no...they arent......i asked that question directly to esp tech support...and they told me they are only related to each other by their investors...and are in deed made in different factories

Just thought I'd update.

Went to GC yesterday and tried the c-1 fr hellraiser out through a vk 212. I was impressed needless to say lol.

I don't remember how it was when I tried out the syn custom but I remember I was also impressed with that plus between me and everybody else I dig the finish. But Ill still need to try that out again to compare.

I'm giving my setup an upgrade via vk 112 and either syn custom or ltd mh-1000 sometime in the future.

Tried out the hellraiser because from what I've heard it's the same thing as the ltd in terms of sound.

I'm aware of the neck difference. Which is one reason I like the LTD. I have big hands but for some reason i like smaller but longer necks... ESP and Schecter are sister companies though.

Quote by Wikipedia
In 1987, the Texan investors sold the company to Hisatake Shibuya, a Japanese entrepreneur who also owned the Musicians Institute in Hollywood and ESP Guitars (Schecter Guitar Research and ESP Guitars have remained to this day separate entities).[1] Under the ownership of Hisatake Shibuya, the Schecter company was moved back to California and slowly began to rebuild its reputation. Hisatake Shibuya returned the company to its custom shop roots and devoted all its efforts to manufacturing high-end, expensive custom instruments.


No they arent, they are just owned by the same investor group or w/e.

EDIT:ahhh i sea.

Regardless people have told me the only real difference between the Schecter C-1 FR Hellraiser and the LTD MH-1000 was the neck.
