Schecter Hellraiser C-7 7 String Electric Guitar (Discontinued)

91 out of 100. Incorporating 70+ ratings and reviews.

The Schecter Hellraiser C-7 has been in production for a while now but still is one of Schecter’s most popular models.

Featuring a mahogany body and set-in 3 piece mahogany neck with Schecter’s signature C neck profile that’s just big enough to fill out the hands without getting in the way.

A pair of EMG 707tw Humbuckers gives the Hellraiser C-7 a powerful but tight voice for high-gain applications while being clean enough for ambient and delayed soundscapes with the Coil Tap.

Overall, the Hellraiser C-7 gets a lot of things right for the most amount of people. With its excellent build quality, versatile tone, and class aesthetic, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better, more consistently built 7 string guitar at this price range.
