General What is your overall opinion of this product? NICE SMOOTH PLAYING GUITAR WITH FLOYD. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? THIS GUITAR HAS OUTSTANDING QUALITY FOR BEING MADE IN KOREA. DONT LET THAT BOTHER YOU THOUGH, THESE THINGS ARE THE BEST GUITARS BEING MADE THESE DAYS. IT HAS COIL TAPS ON BOTH PICKUPS SO YOU CAN GET A GOOD STRAT SOUND AND THE EMG METAL SOUND IS AMAZING. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? NECK IS VERY FAST AND SMOOTH Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? YOU CAN GET ALOT OF GOOD TONES OUT OF THIS GUITAR. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? MINE IS FINISHED WHITE AND THE ABALONE BINDING AND INLAY MAKE IT LOOK REALLY CLASSY. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? WELL WORTH THE PRICE TAG, I SAVED $180 ON MINE BY GETTING A BLEM AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT! Playability How was the action out of the box? I HAD TO SET IT UP BUT EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN PREFERNCE.
More than I was expecting.

General What is your overall opinion of this product? this guitar is a must have if you play any lead at all. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? the wood and finish look great. I've played many korean built guitars and this has become my favorite. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? weight is perfect and its very fasy on the neck. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? tone is perfect. barely have to pluck the strings for sound. in the split neck position, you geta lead tone that would make Iron Maiden pround and the bridge is full and very distinguished Finish How did the stain or paint job look? love it Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? best 800 dollar guitar I've ever bought Playability How was the action out of the box? I play in d standard so bout 15 minutes to reset. the easy access of the spring tension adjustments make this guitar even more awesome

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This product is made pretty well, few very minor flaws in paint but I didn't notice them for about a week or so. I don't do shows or anything like that so I can't say how dependable it is. I try to play at least an hour a day and have no problems with it staying in tune. General Your general opinion of this product. Very nice guitar at a decent price. This is my first guitar with an actual real Floyd rose (not a pat) and I can definitely notice the difference. The emg pickups with the coil tap are also a nice addition. I have the white one and love the looks, weight and feel of it. Very solid guitar. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pickups are hot, emg's... Very dirty distortion yet very nice clean, Best of both worlds. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint job is very nice, couple small flaws but nothing anyone else but me would notice.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Excellent finish, good attention-to-detail. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall, this guitar plays wonderfully. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very metal-ish, but I was able to get great blues tones from it as well. Was very pleased with the clean tones it put out...but this guitar shines the brightest when you play some metal through it. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint job is amazing. Very high, durable gloss finish.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? General Your general opinion of this product. I needed a second guitar as a backup during live performances. I chose the Hellraiser because of the coil tapping and sound quality. I purchased the white HR with the Floyd Rose treml Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The guitar is a perfect match to my Digitech GSP1101 processor. The guitar has plenty of crunch and cuts through without much processing required. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was great. However, now I notice cracking between the two screws that hold the pickup selector switch. It's minor, but it's there.
excellent decision

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Definately well made. Perfect finish. General Your general opinion of this product. This is an outstanding guitar. This guitar was setup perfect for me right out of the box. I've been an Ibanez fan most of my 20+ guitar playing years, and now have found Schecter to be right up there on quality and playability. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone is great for leads, and has the heavier edge when playing the low chords Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful. I got the gloss white.
