So yeah, was thinking of buying this beast and was looking for some input into the whole thing as its not exactly the cheapest guitar ever.

I play in a band in the style of rise against, mcr sort of thing. Also, really enjoy playing metal such as a7x, trivium etc. Playing through a fender FM210R and a zoom gu2.1.

Yay or Nay?

I have an older model Hellraiser and I love it. I use it for all the heavier stuff because of the EMG's. The Floyd Rose is an original Floyd Rose so it has no issues staying in tune. If you get a 2008 model, it has the split EMG's. I'm really interested in trying those out.

The neck is set in, 24 frets and it plays smooth. If you're interested in a killer guitar for playing some heavy stuff, I recommend it without any reservations. It's expensive, but it's easily worth it. You should never have to replace this guitar.

I would get the C-1 Hellraiser ATX.... I like Blackouts better than EMGs. That's the only thing I would change!!!

I actually want to add one of those ATX's to my collection, too. I have such a crush on them. haha.

I just don't know whether I like the black one or the white one more. All my guitars are black so I'm leaning toward the white one, but that matte black with the trim is so damn sexy.

If you want a good deal on a 2007 Hellraiser C1-FR, I can sell you mine. It's in good condition, and you'd get a better price from me than from Guitar Center. PM me if you're interested.
