The neck is slightly angeled to the body, so the rhythm pickup dosent get in the way of picking, so compared to my ESP, picking is extremely comfortable and i love it.

Is there a name for this feature? if one was to set up a custom guitar, could ESP for example do this? or is it Schecter only?

If really needed, i can take pics.

What do you mean like? I have a hellraiser, but I don't really know what you're talking about.

The angling is because of the TOM bridge. It helps provide more tension on the nut, since the guitar is only a 24 3/4" scale. All guitars with TOMs and not a 25" scale length (maybe its just all TOMs, idk for sure) have the neck angled.

I thought all hellraisers were 25 1/2 in. scale. Mine is.

"Construction/Scale: Set-Nect with Ultra Access / 25 1/2""

yes they are

And see how the hellraiser fretboard is raised ABOVE the body slightly? under the binding there is still wood which raises it higher?

Actually, the reason the neck is angled is that otherwise, as the strings got farther away from the nut, they'd get higher off the fretboard, seeing as the TOM holds the strings relatively high off the body. It has nothing to do with string tension; it's there to keep the action low. The hellraiser is a 25.5" scale anyways.

To answer the question, yes ESP can do it. It's relatively essential to having a well playable guitar with a TOM.
