You asked for it, and Schecter is all too pleased to deliver the Hellraiser Hybrid C-7: a 7-string solidbody electric guitar with all the features serious aggressive guitarists have been asking for. It all starts off with a set of extra-hot EMG active humbuckers - the perfect basis for brutal tone. A delightfully balanced mahogany body topped with quilted maple offers up a tried-and-true tonewood combo, your fingers will positively fly down the Hellraiser Hybrid C-7's compound-radius fretboard and slim SLS neck, and you'll love the tuning stability you'll get from the Hipshot hardtail bridge.

Hellraiser Hybrid: cool guitars with the features players like you demand

One of the things we really like about Schecter here at Sweetwater is that they're clearly devoted to giving their fans exactly the guitars they want. The Hellraiser Hybrid lineup is just one more example of this. Based entirely on feedback from players like you, Schecter loaded the Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 and the rest of the HH Series with a slim SLS profile neck, a compound-radius fretboard, a newly designed carbon fiber binding, a full set of glow-in-the-dark side dots (a real bonus when you're playing darker venues), and a pair of super-popular EMG active humbuckers. Get the performance you need and all of the trappings you desire with your very own Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 solidbody electric guitar!

Get hot-rodded PAF tone from this pair of popular EMG pickups

If you're looking for a sweet range of tone that can go from subtle to brutal, then you're going to get a kick out of the Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-7. Like the rest of the Hellraiser Hybrid collection, the Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 comes loaded with a pair of active EMG pickups including an EMG 57-7 at the bridge and an EMG 66-7 at the neck - both with cool-looking brushed black metal-works covers. The result sounds like a set of overwound vintage PAFs. From the chest-thumping lows to the resonant honk that metal guitarists rely on, you'll get all the tones you need from your Hellraiser Hybrid C-7.

Quilted maple meets solid mahogany - the perfect tonewoods for metal

Modern metal and hard rock were founded on the sound of warm mahogany and the bite of maple - and that's just what you get with a Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 solidbody electric guitar. Resculpted for the Hellraiser Hybrid line, the Hellraiser Hybrid C-7's mahogany body sports an increased upper cutaway that provides even easier access to your higher frets. Stunning quilted maple caps this body, adding both bright sonic overtones and a look so three-dimensional it seems to punch trough the glossy, transparent black finish.

Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A high-performance 7-string electric guitar built to give metal and hard rock players exactly what they want
  • Pair of active EMG humbuckers includes a EMG 57-7 at the bridge and an EMG 66-7 at the neck for hot-rodded PAF tone
  • Contoured and well-balanced mahogany body topped with quilted maple looks great and sounds amazing
  • 3-piece maple neck with slim SLS neck profile lets your fingers fly down the fretboard
  • Compound-radius fretboard lets you easily bend notes up high and finger chords down low
  • Fully adjustable Hipshot hardtail bridge and string-through-body configuration deliver awesome sustain
  • Other details include carbon fiber binding and glow-in-the-dark side dots
Get serious metal and rock performance with this Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 solidbody electric guitar!

Good guitar... But not for the price

This is easily one of the better Korean-made guitars that I've played in a while. The EMG 57-7H/66-7H set is killer, and sounds like a ballsy set of passives, great for the mid-heavy tone used by many modern prog musicians. Amazing dirt and clean alike, which is surprising for active pickups. Hipshot bridge is stellar, and Schecter locking tuners are as good as any aftermarket set - I'd choose them above some other brands. The guitar itself is great, too. The carbon-fiber binding looks very modern and the knobs and pickup selector feel very sturdy. The compound radius and thin-but-round neck profile feel great. Though some may believe that the compound radius concept is a gimmick, I will contend that this is not so; chords really did seem to come more easily near the lower end of the neck, while playing fast on the upper frets was as easy as it is on any Ibanez I've ever played. Glow-in-the-dark side inlays are very cool, too, and are bigger than normal inlays, so you can see them very easily, light or dark. The see-thru black finish is beautiful, and this is coming from someone who hates black guitars; the wood grain comes through beautifully and in person, the guitar I got has a dark gold glow to it. Sadly, this is where the good stuff ends. Underneath the finish of the guitar on the lower-left side, right where you can't quite see clearly in SW's photographs, the guitar I ordered had a strange anomaly. It looked like a sticker was partially ripped off and stained black when they went to finish the guitar. The finish inside the pickup cavities was poorly done and the wood clearly showed through. This was not done in a clean way, but a very haphazard, sloppy fashion, and really makes the guitar look cheap. The carbon-fiber binding between the fretboard and the neck pickup looked rough and almost ground-up and looked very low-quality. Now, this may all seem very superficial and appearance-based, but when you pay a grand for an axe, generally you don't want it to look like a botched Squier. One final complain - the guitar did NOT "feel" like a thousand-dollar instrument, either. I paid half for my two Epiphones, both of which feel more solidly-built than this Schecter. I can't say why; it's certainly not the hardware, or the design, as this guitar trumps them both in every regard there. There's just something about this guitar that really puts me off and makes it feel low-quality. TL;DR - Would be great for maybe 3/4 the price. As it is, it's just average. Plays great, sounds awesome, feels mediocre at best.
