The Schecter Guitar Research C-7 Hellraiser is a seven string, 26 1/2" scale electric guitar. It features a 3-piece Mahogany neck, Rosewood fingerboard, Mahogany body with a quilted Maple top, 24 jumbo frets, gothic cross style inlays, EMG Active 707-TW pickups, a Floyd Rose Original Tremolo and abalone binding. The tuners are nice Grovers, and all the hardware is black chrome. The controls are 2 volume pots with push and pull coil-splitting capabilities, a tone knob and a 3-way directional toggle switch. The construction is absolutely top-notch, everything is done perfectly. The fit and finish is beautiful, the abalone bindings are done right and look great. The deep, dark red finish is awesome and heavy.


The guitar is a dream to play, very smooth and fast action. The neck will feel big for first time players of a 7-string, and it is. Despite it's wideness, the neck is still very fast and comfortable to play. Access to the upper frets has been no problem for me, though I do have long and thin fingers. It could be a little hard to get past the 22nd fret for some players due to the lower cutaway, but I've had no issues. The instrument is not to heavy, but it has some real substance to it and could possibly get tiresome to wear for long shows, I'd recommend a high quality strap so it doesn't irritate your shoulder.


The sound is phenomenal. Thanks to the extended scale and the fixed bridge, the attack is very well defined. I use guitar mainly to play deep, slow drones and it does that job perfectly. Every note is clear and defined and sounds awesome. This guitar can get some DEEP sounds. It sounds great clean or with extreme distortion. Overall, it performs awesomely and has done everything I've tried with it to great success.


Overall, this guitar freakin' rocks! It's great for anyone who plays a heavier style of music. It could easily go from scorching solos to Satriani style legato down to deep and brutal riffage. Anyone looking for a high end metal guitar should seriously consider this.
