Guitarists that enjoy soloing will love this guitar with its ability to produce an incredible amount of sustain thanks to the EMG Active 81 pickup and Sustainiac Driver.

Working musicians always worry about the safety of their guitar and their livelihood, but with the mahogany 3 piece neck this Hellraiser electric is durable during transport and on-stage. Try one out for yourself from AMS, because this is one decision you will never regret.
Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR Sustainiac Electric Guitar Features
The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination
The most common fingerboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.
EMG Active 81-7:
The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps giving it a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. Sustainiac: This Driver/Pickup produces beautiful Humbucker tones when Sustain switch is off, and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched On. The Sustainiac Driver creates an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback.
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability
To save battery life, unplug your guitar when not in use. The active electronics draw power when the guitar cable is plugged in.
