New Schecter Damien/Hellraiser guitars...

I was originally thinking of buying one of those 7-string schecter damien guitars i saw in the February issue of Guitar World, but now in the march issue they have a similar model called the Hellraiser, only differences I can notice being different fret inlays, real emg's instead of emg hz's, 2 volume and 1 tone knob instead of 1 volume and 1 tone, and a 3 way strat style switch instead of a 3 way les paul style switch. Man, I hate choices...

Re: New Schecter Damien/Hellraiser guitars...

Angry Re: New Schecter Damien/Hellraiser guitars...

That looks cool except that I hate the placment of the toggle switch!!!!! The only 2 companies that I see that have it right are Ibanez and Music Man with the John Petrucci model.

damn...

i just bought a left-handed blackjack c-7. it has a duncan jb/59 combo 5 way switch with a coil tap. i put an emg 81/85 in my 6 string but i sold that guitar to buy the 7 string. my new guitar is pretty much my dream guitar but i wish it had an emg 81-7/707 pickup combination. i could have that installed later on but i'm scared to have the body routed. i don't know if they'll make left handed version of the hellraiser guitar. i don't need the extra volume knob that the hellraisers have. i just need a master volume, master tone and a 3 way swich which all could be done on my c-7 blackjack.

the damien's are bolt on neck like the omen's. it's worth the extra money to get a hellraiser or blackjack.

Re: New Schecter Damien/Hellraiser guitars...

wow not a bad price does the one with the bat wings come in 7 string with real active emg's? The schceter website sucks they do not even have these guitars there yet??

Re: New Schecter Damien/Hellraiser guitars...

The one with the bat wings (the damien 7) does not come with real active emg's, only passive emg hz's. The neck joint on the Damien 7 is a bolt-on neck joint, i'm not sure if they have some sort of contoured heel with it or not though...
