Superb quality guitar

David9268, 13.11.2013
The Hellraiser C-1 LH is a great guitar considering the price point. The EMG pickups are not to everyone's taste, but personally I love them - good, tight response with plenty of bite and excellent noise suppressing qualities. Coil tapping is a useful bonus too, which expands the tonal possibilities. The mahogany body and set neck provide plenty of nice sustain, with a warm mellow tone. The Schecter locking tuners work well and do what they're supposed to, and the quilted maple top is gorgeous, with a flawless finish. The abalone binding is nicely applied, although I would prefer not to have it around the headstock, but that's a minor quibble. Likewise the Gothic Cross fret markers are well, done - these wont appeal to everyone, but as I play in a Gothic metal band, I like them! The neck is surprisingly chunky, yet still quite comfortable. I have small hands, yet don't find it problematic, but some shredders might prefer something slimmer. I've owned some high end guitars that don't come close to matching the Hellraiser. Snap one up!

the only true and better alternative to LTD

FixxxY, 19.03.2013
First of all, I am very meticulous in terms of processing, because I think that impeccable workmanship could also be possible in the medium price range.

The logo on the headstock, for example, is not applied quite cleanly, but most would not even notice it, so there is also the full score.

The equipment leaves nothing to be desired, EMG's and then still splittable ... what more could you want?

The sound is pretty balanced for a mahogany guitar.
I'm usually not a fan of mahogany as it often sounds "too soft" in my opinion, especially if you play fast metal riffs that can be a disadvantage.

However, there are no problems here, the guitar sounds absolutely crisp and defined, but it can also do more than just "metal board".

The guitar was built in Korea and you can tell!

For me, Schecter and LTD were always on the same level, the guitars are looking forward to the same forge, but the quality at LTD has dropped a lot since they are not produced anymore in Korea.
Another reason why I chose Schecter.

Very nice is also the very Lefty-friendly company policy of Schecter, which offer almost every model as Lefthand version, RESPECT!

That's why I think it's a pity that the music houses always offer the same red guitars, a little more choice would be really good, even if the red Finisch looks absolutely great!

ACCESS LONG AS WELL AS THERE ARE!
