Mahogany Body with a Quilted Maple Top
Schecter's Hellraiser is a well-balanced guitar from aggressive crunchy sounds to rich, clean tones, perfect for the modern day player. The Quilted Maple top provides a great resonance, enhancing the natural tones of the body wood, whilst the Maples figuring provides a stylish and unique look. The Mahogany body offers naturally warm tones, with a touch of bite for creating tights lows and appealing highs. With Abalone binding, black chrome hardware, and a Hipshot hardtail bridge, the Hellraiser is given a black cherry 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 neck is designed with carbon fiber reinforcement rods to ensure the neck stays stable, and reduces any strain from the strings. 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 a set of EMG 808 humbuckers, based on the EMG 707 humbucker, to deliver powerfully heavy tones. The humbuckers feature alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils that beef up the lower strings, eliminating a muddy F# string for a tone that has plenty of clarity. The EMG 808 offers the presence and dynamics that an 8 string guitar requires, and provides a tight, responsive sound that can articulate every note played.
