You asked for it, and Schecter is all too pleased to deliver the Hellraiser Hybrid C-8: an 8-string solidbody electric guitar with all the features serious aggressive guitarists have been asking for. It all starts off with a set of extra-hot EMG active humbuckers – the perfect basis for brutal tone. A delightfully balanced mahogany body topped with quilted maple offers up a tried-and-true tonewood combo, your fingers will positively fly down the Hellraiser Hybrid C-8’s ebony fretboard and slim SLS neck, and you’ll love the tuning stability you’ll get from the Hipshot hardtail bridge.
Hellraiser Hybrid: cool guitars with the features players like you demand
One of the things we really like about Schecter here at Sweetwater is that they’re clearly devoted to giving their fans exactly the guitars they want. The Hellraiser Hybrid lineup is just one more example of this. Based entirely on feedback from players like you, Schecter loaded the Hellraiser Hybrid C-8 and the rest of the HH Series with a slim SLS profile neck, a newly designed carbon fiber binding, a full set of glow-in-the-dark side dots (a real bonus when you’re playing darker venues), and a pair of super-popular EMG active humbuckers. Get the performance you need and all of the trappings you desire with your very own Hellraiser Hybrid C-8 solidbody electric guitar!
Get hot-rodded PAF tone from this pair of popular EMG pickups
If you’re looking for a sweet range of tone that can go from subtle to brutal, then you’re going to get a kick out of the Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-8. Like the rest of the Hellraiser Hybrid collection, the Hellraiser Hybrid C-8 comes loaded with a pair of active EMG pickups including an EMG 57-8 at the bridge and an EMG 66-8 at the neck – both with cool-looking brushed black metal-works covers. The result sounds like a set of overwound vintage PAFs. From the chest-thumping lows to the resonant honk that metal guitarists rely on, you’ll get all the tones you need from your Hellraiser Hybrid C-8.
Quilted maple meets solid mahogany – the perfect tonewoods for metal
Modern metal and hard rock were founded on the sound of warm mahogany and the bite of maple – and that’s just what you get with a Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-8 solidbody electric guitar. Resculpted for the Hellraiser Hybrid line, the Hellraiser Hybrid C-8’s mahogany body sports an increased upper cutaway that provides even easier access to your higher frets. Stunning quilted maple caps this body, adding both bright sonic overtones and a look so three-dimensional it seems to punch trough the glossy, transparent black finish.
