finally got my Hellraiser!!!

thing is, everything was perfect, the case, flawless body but...
he advertised it on ebay with 85/81 emgs and it's the 2008 tap-coil model, but oh well...

more versatility i guess?

but i havent played it yet haha...im about to!

A 81/85 configuration with coil-tapping is called 81TW/89.

everything seems perfect on it..intonation, action, everything but..it has super slinkys on it now, but i play a lot of TDWP, underoath, hardcore/metalcore so... should i keep the supers on now or switch to the power slinkys i bought for when i got it?

Damn seems like there are a lot of new gear threads popping up this week. Im so jealous my alexi 600 hasn't come yet =(

Congrats, thats a very nice guitar. I would switch to a higher gauge if you want to detune it, otherwise I usually use 10s(I dont remember exactly what the super slinkys are). I wouldn't change the strings until you have enough time to change the strings AND set it up, which sometimes can be a pain if its a big jump.

Nice! I got mine like a month ago and am looooving it

Oh and the coil tapping is better, you get more versatility for free. Why choose less options for the same price?

hmmm, i just finished playing for about an hour & 1/2...i must say, im not as impressed as i thought i would be..idk what i expected, i mean..the EMGs, the great reviews, the same guitar some of my fav. bands use...

could it be my amp?

my high gain channel sounds all congested and muddy..i can barely distinguish notes

i mean basically...my epi lp custom sounded almost the same as the Hellraiser, and keeping the LP wouldve saved me money instead of selling it to have gotten this


alhtough i DO plan to get a 5150 combo this weekend....

do you think i can make this guitar sound worthy of its capability through that?

and i cant seem to get those hardcore squels out of it...i get the same squels i got from my Epiphone..i thought you could squel the crap outta EMGs?!

new amp, and you prob. haven't gotten a good feel for the guitar yet. It took me ages to get used to a les paul and doing pinch harmonics after playing on strats.
