Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest - Trans Black Burst
Special Order

The Tempest is Back and Dressed to Kill!

Bringing about the long-anticipated re-release of the Tempest format, the Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest solidbody electric guitar gives you the style, features, and performance you demand. It all starts off with a set of extra-hot EMG active humbuckers - the perfect basis for brutal tone - each of which has its own tone and volume controls. A mahogany body topped with quilted maple offers up a tried-and-true tonewood combo, and your fingers will positively fly down the Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest's compound-radius fretboard and slim SLS neck. With the addition of cool carbon-fiber binding and glow-in-the-dark side dots, the Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest delivers looks that match its amazing tone.

  • Hellraiser Hybrid: cool guitars with the features players like you demand
  • Get hot-rodded PAF tone from this pair of popular EMG pickups

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 Tempest 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 Tempest 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 Tempest. Like the rest of the Hellraiser Hybrid collection, the Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest comes loaded with a pair of active EMG pickups including an EMG 57 at the bridge and an EMG 66 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 Tempest.

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 Tempest solidbody electric guitar. Resculpted for the Hellraiser Hybrid line, the Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest'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 3D it seems to punch trough the glossy, transparent black finish.

Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A high-performance 6-string electric guitar built to give metal and hard rock players exactly what they want
  • Reintroduces the Schecter body style and configuration for a whole new generation of shredders and rockers
  • Pair of active EMG humbuckers includes a EMG 57 at the bridge and an EMG 66 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
  • Other details include carbon-fiber binding and glow-in-the-dark side dots
Get serious metal and rock performance with this Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid Tempest solidbody electric guitar!
