Schecter Hellraiser C8 FR 8 string guitar active emg floyd rose and pro setup
Schecter C-1 E/A Semi-Hollow Electric guitar with Acoustic Piezo pickup in the Bridge. MODIFIED with Seymour Duncan P-59 pickups. This guitar doesn't have a scratch or ding. Has always been played inside in a smoke-free house, no pets. I'm not a professional musician here. I am a blues/jazz/funk/rock type player who likes the range of tones with the Semi-Hollow body. The stock pickups weren't that great, so I replaced them with Duncan p-59s. This mod completely changes this guitar from good to great. It sounds like $1000+ guitar with these pickups in them. Look on youtube for the p-59 reviews, or, if you want, I can plug it up and put a vid on Youtube so you can hear it through a Fender Superchamp XP (decent amp, nothing special). They were $100 bucks each plus labor. The reason I'm getting rid of this one is that I bought a Gibson ES-339, a guitar I've always wanted (well, 335 actually). I went back and forth for a week on which one I wanted to keep. I thought the Gibson would win hands down, but it didn't. The sound is so close. I went with the Gibson in the end because it has a slightly darker tone in the neck pickup that's a little better sounding for the jazz-style I'm trying to learn...but again....it was a really really close call. I just don't need them both. The reviews of this guitar are great, and you can't go wrong if you want a rich, deep, soulful semi-hollow sound. Will send the stock pickups with the guitar and a Roadrunner gig back as well. The guitar has a faster neck than the Gibson and is incredibly smooth to play. This is a well-made guitar for the price, and with the top-notch pickups, it sounds like twice the guitar. You also get an acoustic/electric when you switch to the Piezo pickup. Sounds identical to a plugged up acoustic. This guitar really has a HUGE range of possibilities. The piezo is battery powered with a 9-Volt, so you do have to switch that out every 6 or so months. As long as you don't leave the guitar plugged in when you're not playing, you won't have to change the battery very often. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks.
