hey everyone, this is my first thread on UG.

I recently got a new Schecter for my birthday, it was marked as a Hellraiser, yet sold for $500 instead of the reg $750 (at guitar center). It was sold as new, not used.

It seemed to be a regular Hellraiser, but upon further inspection it was obvious it wasn't. The body's finish is similiar, but different, the shape is also similiar but different, the neck is a bolt-on (not sure if the reg hellraiser is also), it has one tone knob besides a volume knob, and most different, are the frets inlays.

This stumps me the most. They are crescent moons, with a "magical eye" at the 12th fret. Near the tuning keys it says "Hellraiser DLX", which I'm assuming means "deluxe".

I have searched a lot, and I can't find this model ANYWHERE on the internet, I checked if it was foreign or discontinued with no luck. The guitar center I bought it at doesn't even know what it is, besides the obvious (it's a kind of schecter hellraiser). I havn't seen it at any other guitar center or Samash either. It if its' a limited/deluxe edition of the hellraiser, why was it $250 less, and why can't I find it anywhere else?

I took a picture:

Despite it being obscure, I love it. I get a great sound out of it, especially with the EMGs it came with. I would like to know what guitar it is tho, and possibly an idea of how much it is worth.

Schecter and GC have a thing going. Schecter will build and sell a few different model guitars to GC and not sell them to anyone else. I have a Gryphon, you won't find anywhere even Schecter's website, made for GC by Schecter.

Your quite lucky I've seen one of these at GC but whenever I google the name, no luck.

It's a dream to play. Enjoy it while you got it man. I wish I could get a schecter.

Chris, you can do it pretty cheap if you go used. Seriously, those things have like a 50% or less resale value.

Looks like a Damien, same body as a Hellraiser. That's pretty close to my Gryphon. Nice playing and sounding guitar. Mine's Duncan design and looks like you got EMG's.

Enjoy it, they play well, only problem I've had was the damn jack nut kept comming loose.

take care of that one, im willing to bet its a SE and that they only made a limited amount of them.
That will probably gain in value later on.

doubt it

why not?

its a schecter. that's why, even if it is in the same name recognition as fender and gibson. it's gonna take more then 3 decades.

First: sorry for necroing this thread.
Second: I also have a Hellraiser DLX but mine has passive HZ and not the 81/85 combo. It's exactly the same as yours otherwise. I did buy mine from thomann but seeing as they advertise the same 81/85 set-up something ain't right.

any thoughts?

It's a Hellraiser Deluxe... I don't see what the big problem is. Guitar Center has them on their website.

EDIT: Damn i forgot to check the date.. that's what happens when i post at 4am
