Schecter is proud announce the debut of the much anticipated HELLRAISER HYBRID COLLECTION. A unique fusing of our infamous HELLRAISER and SLS models, the "Hybrid" will be just that a combination of the most sought after features of both! The Hell raiser"s signature highly figured quilted Maple top is now redesigned with a more sculptured arch and is set into the Mahogany body with an increased upper access cutaway. All HH models will be finished in High Gloss Transparent Black Burst. You asked, we listened. This collection is armed with EMG"s 57/66 Active hum-buckers, with Brushed Black metal-works covers. The HH C-7 and C-8 versions also use USA made Hipshot Non-Trem bridges to accommodate progressive playing styles. Schecter Locking tuners and Graphtec black Tusq nuts are standard on the non-FR versions. The SLS shares its popular thin, fast neck profile and satin finish. The compound radius ebony fiberboard is adorned with an "inverted" dot pattern; switching to the treble side at the 15th fret. The Metal Cross, synonymous with the Hell raiser sits proudly at the 12th fret. A newly designed "Carbon fiber" binding and glow-in-the-dark side dots (great for low light live situations) add the 2014 Hell raiser Hybrid"s "classic-metal" look.
Top customer reviews
I previously played a c7 Hellraiser, the standard one with the red finish and EMG 707's with string thru tune o matic bridge. That I thought was a very good guitar, it played well, sounded pretty good and was made of quality materials and components. I had no complaints other than perhaps the thicker neck profile than I was used to (I was used to the Jackson soloist profile). I prefer 7s to 6s or 8s (I have a 6 a 7 and an 8) due to my larger hands; they just feel at home playing a 7 and I love the option to be able to play anything I can play on a 6, on a 7 but with the added low end of the B.
I sold both of those and eventually bought the HR-H C7 with the hardtail bridge since I hate trems. The fit and finish is just as good as the other HR C7 I had, the little details they threw in like the glow in the dark inlays and the carbon fiber binding throughout really set it off. This is a damn good looking guitar, and the top that they paired my particular one with is full of life. It looks badass, but not overtly 'metal'. It just looks like a modern electric guitar, and with the decidedly passive feeling EMG active pickups (57/66 combo, these are worth a review on their own but let me just say they are excellent for any type of playing and very dynamic) this guitar is highly versatile. If I had to give this thing a genre it would be progressive metal, but it can pull off anything you like (Especially if you get the FR version).
Why is this guitar so much better than the regular hellraiser? Let me tell you more specifically. And this goes for the 6 string version and 8 I would presume as well.
First off the neck is so good. Satinized rather than glossed. Your thumb easily glides over the back of the neck. The thinner SLS profile is thin but not overly thin like an Ibanez. Wide stretches are a piece of cake on this, it wants your fingers to move around all over it. The ebony fretboard is a lot more refined than the cheap rosewood that the regular hellraiser uses, or pretty much every other guitar at this price point and below uses for that matter. It looks slick and feels great. No more fingernail getting caught in the fretboard here. Fretwork is very good I'd say. Obviously not handmade custom shop level, but still very good. They set the action a little high from factory but thats easy to adjust, they even give you the allen wrenches to do that with the guitar.
The original HR, and pretty much every other guitar in this price range uses an EMG 81 and 85 setup. These are good enough for metal, but they sound like crap for every other genre and even for metal there are a lot better pickups to use. The 81 is basically a cheat code to a passable metal tone and they sound like garbage once you get an ear for tone. The 57/66 on this guitar are a different story though. You can play softly and keep the guitar out of overdrive easily like a passive, but you still get the noise cancelling active effect at the same time when you bite harder with your pick. Make sure you get the HRH without pickup rings! Looks and feels much less cluttered. These pickups are great, and I've got no desire to switch them out at the moment, although a nice set of BKP would probably trump them tonewise.
The Schecter locking tuners are the same as the regular hellraiser and that's fine, no complaints from me on that front the guitar stays in tune quite well though not quite as well as a floyd rose equipped guitar. The bridge is a very solid chunk of steel from Hipshot. Brand name hardware all around for this guitar and the bridge doesn't disappoint either. Its very comfortable and ergonomic.
Overall I'd give this guitar a 9/10. Two things I wish it had- coil splitting for the pickups like my old Hellraiser C7 and stainless frets. The KM7 that's about 100 dollars more than this one gives you the stainless frets, but the pickups aren't as versatile nor are the controls (1 volume no tone pots). A couple of different finish options would also have been nice, since the Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 could easily be Schecters flagship 7 string. If you get this pick up a dimarzio strap lock at the same time, its a no brainer and gives you piece of mind.
