With the Schecter Hellraiser C-7 solidbody 7-string electric guitar, you get options. Put up a wall of sound with huge, thick chords; launch runs that start really low; play bass lines; discover new chord voicings - the possibilities are endless. With its 3-piece neck, string-through-body construction, locking tuners, and tappable EMG active humbuckers, this axe is built for hard-core front-line duty. The Hellraiser C-7 doesn't feel like a 6-string with an extra string - it's an amazingly playable instrument unto itself. Considering a 7-string? Check out the Schecter Hellraiser C-7.

7-string beef

7-string guitars are a breed apart. The Schecter Hellraiser C-7 solidbody guitar sports a 26.5" scale that keeps your low B sounding nice and tight; this also imparts a unique sound to the rest of the instrument. Schecter's 7-string design and construction techniques (3-piece neck, string-through-body construction, and locking tuners) all contribute to the Hellraiser C-7's unique, authoritative, eminently musical voice.

EMG 707TW humbuckers onboard

The Schecter Hellraiser C-7 is fitted with two active EMG 707TW humbucking pickups. If you're deploying a low B-string, then there's no use even trying a passive pickup. Designed specifically for 7-string guitars, the 707TW gives you the clearest, fattest low end you've ever felt from a guitar pickup. Better still, these pups are tapped, serving up pure alnico single-coil spank and sparkle. It's this kind of tonal versatility that makes the Schecter Hellraiser C-7 ideal for metal, fusion, and most any flavor of rock.

Looks great onstage

No doubt about it - with its Abalone body binding and Gothic cross fretboard inlays, the Schecter Hellraiser C-7 solidbody 7-string guitar looks killer. A class act all the way. At Sweetwater, we're stone serious about sound... but we're not immune to a little stage vanity. Look at it this way: as you're hurling monstrous power chords at your audience, you might as well look good doing it.

Amazing guitar

Bought this as my first 7 string and my first guitar from Sweetwater. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. The guitar was set up, played, and sounded amazing. The pickups sound great clean and distorted. No mushy/muddy tone. Great definition and clarity. Smooth playing neck and locking tuners keep everything in tune. Awsome guitar. Awsome experience buying from Sweetwater. Highly recommend to all!

Lovin' it!

Finally, the feel and tone I've been after! I played a Schecter Omen 7 with DiMarzio Deactivators that I bought used a few years ago (my first 7 string) and bought this Hellraiser as an upgrade. After shopping numerous models from Schecter, ESP, and Ibanez over the past year, I settled on this one, and could not be happier. I don't typically gush about the aesthetics of my toys, but this guitar is a thing of beauty. I put on some strap locks, plugged it into my rig (Orange Rockerverb 50 and Orange Dual Terror heads into a Mesa Recto 4x12 and Carvin 2x12), and fired it up. The first thing I noticed was a giant improvement in the low end clarity. I play mostly rhythm in my current band, and had never been able to get the mud out of the sound. Not any more! From drop Ab power chords to single note runs, it sounds alive at every range, and puts fire in my riffs. Harmonics and feedback are total ear candy. The feel of the neck is perfect, and the access to the upper range frets is sweet. This is my first guitar with active pickups, and from the sound of them, there's no going back. The switching and separate coil taps make for great tonal versatility. The fretwork and overall quality are high end. I'm very happy to have gotten such great value for the price. As always, my sales rep Ryan Murray did a top notch job on the delivery.

Excellent

The Hellraiser C-7 is an excellent guitar. It is solidly built, the pickups sound great and the tuners are very good. The only issues I've had are minor (replacing tone knobs and toggle switch cover because they had fallen off). But it really is a great playing guitar and great sounding for rock and metal. Highly recommended - probably one of the better guitars under $1000.

Raising total hell with this thing!

I got this 2nd hand but I loved this guitar! it felt really good! the EMGs are really good for the distortion tones, and I LOVE the 2x Vol knobs! The TOM bridge and gloss neck is the only thing that irritated me. But for the price it is pretty nice!

c-7 Hellraiser, the all rounder, and pretty to look at too!!

Looks are impecable, the fit and finish are superb. SOUND : The EMGs are LOUD and POWERFUL. I have to turn down the volume on the guitar so I dont overpower my amp set up. The clarity is nice and there are many tones available. The volume knob by the bridge pickup is a bit close for my taste but if youre used to a Strat its fine. Locking tuners perform flawlessly and this guitar stays in tune. When the climate changes the tuning all strings change nearly evenly. A well built adn good sounding guitar, equally happy in the heavy metal, rock, and even jazz genre. Its a great all rounder, and pretty too!!! This guitar is number 30 in my collection
