Schecter Hellraiser Avenger Review

Model: Hellraiser Avenger
Play & feel
A great guitar. Worth the 950$. It sounds great, and is amazingly comfortable. It was the guitar I learned to play on, and now its hard to play on anything else! I strongly recommend it. The guitar has some really great aspects. My music taste is mostly metal/shred, and I get the perfect crunchy sound out of this guitar; but also, I can get a very nice clean sound as well. If blues is your thing; this guitar does it too. It actually surprised me at first when I was able to get the bluesy sound at first, and I think this guitar is really open to different styles of guitar playing. This guitar can play anything from Metallica to Hendrix and all the way back to Guns and Roses.
The guitar is very durable, and has lasted through many travels etc. The glossy finish of the guitar makes scratches show up less, and makes the guitar always look amazingly clean.
The biggest turnoff is the fact that it doesn't come with a Floyd Rose bridge. Other than that, it has it all.
