Summary: I purchased this guitar, kinda weary about schecter's rep. since its fairly a new company. All I can is WOW! The Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR is an absolute beast. It does it all clean, metal, and rock you wont be disappointed! The craftsmanship is absolutly top notch.........A real solid guitar!
Summary: To get this much quality and performance from any other brand guitar you would have to pay double the money. Schecter means quality. If you are considering a Gibson studio for 1500 bucks, go schecter for half the money and equal quality and twice the wow factor, its a no brainer. Gibson has been working for years to catch up to schecters quality and innovations.
Summary: This is one hell of a Guitar, I'm so happy I took the chance and got this one. Unpacking the guitar I was in total bliss at the beauty of this instrument, then I took her in my hands and the feel is all top quality. I love strat guitars and this in a small way feels the same, but the nick is a bit more thicker and feels great. Setup out of the box was very good, but after a slight adjustment it was perfect.
Summary: Ive been playing guitar for around 10yrs now. Originally a drummer, i wanted to do something a little more "pack up and go"...Since ive been playing, ive owned a Gibson les paul studio, Jackson DXMG, and a martin acoustic. This has been my favorite. I have played faster necks, but due to the construction materials of this particular guitar and its active EMGs (active are preffered over passive in my case), this guitar is killer. Great sustain, and alot of bite!.
Summary: I firmly believe that buying a better/different/new guitar wont make you a better player; but, buying a guitar that makes playing and practicing more fun, most definitely will improve your playing ability! I shopped around for this exact guitar model online and offline, it had a combination of the electronics i wanted, with a body style that screams bad-ass, without looking goofy or akward.
Summary: I just got my Schecter Diamond Series Hellraiser C-1 today and this thing is a total beast. I could not be happier with this guitar. The action is perfect, the pickups are insane, and the locking tuners are gonna be great for keeping it in tune. This guitar truly sounds and plays as good as it looks. Top notch. The binding and fret markers are beautiful as is the trim around the headstock.
Summary: I will not replace this guitar. It will stay in my collection which I plan on adding more Schecters to. They are truly the best brand for the money. I would replace this guitar with most likely another or maybe even something a little more expensive just for fun.
