Schecter has created a monster. The Hellraiser Hyrid Series is a coming-together of the infamous Hellraiser and SLS models, creating a hybrid that has the most sought-after features of both.

The Hellraiser's signature quilted Maple top has been resdesigned with a more sculptured arch set into the Mahogany body. There's increased upper fret access with the Hellraiser Hybrid's cutaway.

The ultra-slim neck with compound radius fingerboard has come from the SLS. All models have been finished in a high-gloss transparent black burst, with carbon fiber binding and side dots that glow in the dark.

The Hellraiser Hybrid series contains the C-7 7 string and C-8 8 string guitars, the Tempest, and C-1 and C-1 FR electric guitars.

Also released for NAMM 2014 was the Hellraiser C-9, a 9 string guitar with jumbo frets for guitarists who want more!
