I have 4 schecters in all: C1 Hellraiser (blk cherry), Omen-6, ACS Elite, and Omen-4. They're all great, and the hellraiser is AWESOME.

I'm kinda thinking about switching the EMGs out, but only to get a different sound, not cause I dont like them or anything. The fretboard is perfect, the tuners stay in tune perfectly, and it sustains like crazy. It also looks incredible under stage lights =).


Same here. The Hellraiser is an amazing guitar, everything you listed. Wonderful fretboard, incredible sustain, keeps tuning for ever, the body is slim and well-shaped. Very comfortable to play.

I was thinking of replacing the EMGs for another sound. I've decided not to. That would be stupid since I really love the EMGs. They scream in the styles they are ment for. So that leaves me with just one choise. I have to get the C1 Black Jack too. I just haven't figured out yet how to brake the news to my wife.

I have a C1 Classic 25.5 scale that is awesome. I also have a C1 Special 24.75 scale with P 90 pups that just screams the blues. The build quality of these Korean made Axes is superb. I love mine.

@Rock: Nice info on the FRs. I'm glad you found it. Maybe the Original FR just isn't used much anymore? I dunno.

As for the Schecter's, I was going to pick up the C-1 FR but when I saw the white trim I really started to not like the look of it. Same with the Hellraiser. I just don't like that darned trim they have!

I think once I get a trade in price on my Warlock I will order the 350. I wish I could see the C-1 with my own eyes, but I've been to most music stores near my home town and gone as far as London, ON last weekend.

Granted, I have not seen the 350 either, but I am not skeptical of it's look.

Also, people rave about both guitars... so it looks like either one should satisfy to the max.

EDIT: Does anyone have a picture of their own C-1 FR or one that is a real life shot? I've tried googling one but all the pictures are unrealistic and do not show the guitar in a real life format or are very small or is one a white background.

From what I have been able to see, the trim looks more off-white which makes, to me, the guitar look older and more classical.

the originals are still used but only on companys higer end guitars. on there low end ones they use licenced ones that they can make from cheeper materials so they can sell em for less. ive heard sometimes the licenced ones are horrible or that they are good. it all depends on the brand, but with an original you pretty much always get the same quality

The black C-1 FR Hellraiser is black gloss with no trim colors at all, it's all black and looks tough. That is the guitar I am getting. In fact I may even trade in my C-1 Classic for it.

Schecter origionaly made guitar parts strting in the 70's.They have been around for awhile but there guitar's just started taking notice in the last 10 years with signiture models by papa roach,avenged sevenfold ect.They make some beutyful guitar's and i love them.I do agree with thepeople saying buy from musicans friend though.The only thing i would do if i bought a scheter is change out the humbucker's if they were not duncan or emg.


--------------------
My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

It's a mother of Pearl trim. Looks much better in person and really puts a nice touch on the overall look.

I am going back to the guitar shop for the last time hopefully this week and I'm going to decide based on feel and play whether to get the 350 or C-1 FR (not Hellraiser). I really hope Schecter wins cause white is just bad news bears in my eyes.

Just make sure you check out the differences between the FR on the C-1 and the FR on the C-1 Hellraiser since the Hellraiser should be better.

Well, while I COULD afford a Hellraiser, I do not want to. $1K+ is overkill for my skill level. I simply don't need it and I am not willing to put that much into a guitar right now, y'know?

There is no question in my mind that it will be the C-1 FR, not Hellraiser.

One day I would love to own one, but not yet!
