About 2 weeks ago i picked up this Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR at GC on sunset. I believe this one was made in 2008. As soon as i picked it up i loved everything about it. only took me about 10 minutes to walk out of the store with it, The neck is so smooth, but not too thin unlike a few esp's i've played but not quite as chunky as my les pauls. The Emg 81/89 (with coil tap) combo make the guitar scream. You can hear the clarity of every note when using them. The coil tap feature really brightens up the cleans and smoothens them up a bit. The guitar always stays in tune thanks the the floyd rose bridge even while doing dive bombs and such.

here are some pics of it:










Thanks

Haha go for it, not on the guitar though
ahh shame about that the black woulda looked way better then the silver, but then again its not about looks its about how it sounds. Although I was half hoping to see what the black looked like in person. But the white just looked alot nicer.

When I visit GC, I'm always careful not to look or go anywhere near this guitar. The white version is just a bit too attractive, and I already have too many guitars, and I can't afford it, and there are other things to buy, and...I sure do like this guitar. You've earned my envy.
#15
im getting one of those guitars also, but i cant decide which damn color, really dont like the silver border on the white one and if i get the black one i have to live with fingerprints all over it :P is the white one nicer in reality than it is on pictures?

ive been thinking of getting that guitar, and when ive read about it, it said it had coil tapping, but it made it sound like you can only tap, the bridge. So im wondering if you can tap both neck and the bridge?

Yeah alot nicer in person, no pictures can do it justice imo, i hardly notice the border when i look at it. ALthough i do give it a clean after each use so i wont have any smudge prints etc.

And to ThrashOWNZ, you can coil tap both of the pickups. Sorry about the confusion.

howe much does it cost


i think it was somewhere around $900 usd with tax.
Im aussie so saved about $600 bucks on it.

Schecters aren't hard to find over here, but there bloody expensive.
The normal C-1FR is $1000 aud compared to us $480, sucks so much.

Looking for a new amp at the moment. 30 watt solid states really cant do this guitar justice. IMO.

i have a omen-6 floyd rose how good will it be to put some EMGs to it?


Hmm, im not quite sure. I havent played the omen 6. It'll put more clarity in your solo's depending on which emg's you get. 81/85 combo should be ok depending on how much you wanna spend. I love how much heavier the 81 make's my playing sound. And the 89 puts so much clarity in my soloing.

That's going to be my next guitar except with no FR, because i don't need one.
Keeping it real since '92

I been lookin at this guitar (just with a fixed bridge), I'm just worried it won't be able to get the versitality I want.
I mostly play nu-metal stuff so it would be perfect for that, but I like some cleans every once and awhile.....can you get decent cleans from it?

Yeah the cleans aren't that bad. The 89's cleans are a bit chunky and dark, but coil tap can fix that up quite well. But i suggest trying one out before you buy it, as each person has different preferences.
#35
Oh yeh, I wouldn't buy one without playing it.
I've got another question thats guna sound kinda stupid, but I'm unfamiliar with EMG's....what exactly is a coil tap?

Uhhh not quite sure. I think it splits the coils in the emg's or something. Sounds good though. I think these are the only model emg's with coil tap. But they really 'clean up' your cleans.
#37
looks ill...i've always thought about a metal/shred guitar thats not outrageous or dumb looking and this one definately looks that way. i like it, and i don't like most guitars like that. i like sticking to the big brands with regular guitars. sweet axe

That's exactly the guitar I'm buying when I get some money together!

That's my next guitar, but I really LOVE the cherry-ish color they have. The white seems a little dull to me. But it's still beautiful.
#40
Sweet!

White's like the new "black." I've already got the black cherry version, and it's an older model without the coiltap, but it's one of my two favorite guitars.
