Mahogany Body with an Arched Top
Schecter's Hellraiser is a well-balanced guitar from aggressive crunchy sounds to rich, clean tones, perfect for the modern day player. The arched top provides a great resonance, enhancing the natural tones of the body wood. The Mahogany body offers naturally warm tones, with a touch of bite for creating tights lows and appealing highs. With grey pearloid binding, black chrome hardware, and a TonePros bridge, the Hellraiser is given a gloss black finish to create a stunning guitar that reflects the tones it can produce.
Mahogany Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard
The 3-piece Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard has been designed with a thin "C" shape for a smooth, fast play, whilst the naturally oily Rosewood fingerboard absorbs stray overtones for a rich sound. The Mahogany/Rosewood combination produces warm, mellow tones with complex highs, thick, creamy lows, and an appealing midrange. It also comes with many other features including Schecter locking machine heads and Gothic cross inlays on the fingerboard.
The Hellraiser features two EMG pickups that offer both a humbucker and single coil pickup in one housing, providing a variety of tonal possibilities. Located at the bridge is an EMG 81TW pickup, offering EMG’s famous 81 humbucker and a single coil pickup that can produce two classic tonal options. Its internal preamp deliver two distinct sounds and also features EMG’s noise cancelling technology to provide a clean sound. The neck pickup is an EMG 89R pickup, offering a humbucker based on the EMG 89 but with reversed coils, and a single coil pickup. When switched to humbucker, the pickup produces a rich, warm, powerful tone that’s clear and articulates, and when in single coil mode the pickup produces a traditionally bright, airy tone that’s similar to the EMG SA.
