Seventh Heaven: Guitar World's Guide to Seven- and Eight-String Guitars
Guitar World's guide to all that's glorious in the world of seven- and eight-string guitars.
Schecter Hellraiser C-7 FR Sustainiac and C-8 FR
If you want your seven-string guitar to have something other guitars don’t, look to the Hellraiser C-7 FR-S from Schecter.
The S in the model number stands for Sustainiac, a driver/pickup that produces beautiful humbucker tones when the Sustain switch is off and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched on, creating an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback.
Other features include an extra-durable three-piece mahogany neck, Grover Rotomatic tuners and gothic cross inlays.
Color options include Black Cherry and black. The C-8 FR has most of the same specs as its seven-string brother, the key differences being its 28-inch scale, carbon-fiber rods in the neck and EMG 808 active pickups.
LIST PRICES: C-7 FR-S, $1,649; C-8 FR, $1,449 | schecterguitars.com
