    I have the C-7 Hellraiser now and I'm wondering if it will be the same but with a FR tremolo...either way I'm definitely gonna pick one up and use the Hellraiser as a backup :D

    I hope that guitar won't pass the $1000 price tag just because it has jeff's name on it. I'm saving for a hellraiser right now.
    btw i never saw, heard jeff use a floyd, or a tremolo

    its comming out mid summer of this year, its problably just gonna be the C7 Hellraiser with the standard EMG pickups in it and instead of saying Hellraiser on the truss rod cover, it will have loomis's signature on it. Thats my Guess.

    Yeah, when I didn't see the Floyded one at Jaxx, it makes me think this is what we'll get...

    what is the point of producing a signature model that is almost similiar to a regular series model?
    the name and extra 500 bucks for it?

    wtih all the respect the JEFF, and there is because is probably on of the best that not superplayers-stars like vai yngwie ans stuff, I dont think the name worth it
    at least put a floyd or something!! :)

    Why? If it does, just buy the regular Hellraiser.

    I mean, I love Jeff and all, but I'm not buying a guitar just because his name is on it...

    I think it will be a C-7 hellraiser with a Floyd, but like all other Schecter sigs it will be made in Korea. I would guess it will probably sell for just around $1000 USD, considering that's what the higher end LTD signature models that are made in the same Korean factory go for( ie....Alexi model with floyd). If they do in fact announce it at Summer NAMM...you can expect a November or December '06 street date.


    all of the above is my opinion NOT fact......but feel free to dig up this thread and tell me that I was right when the end of this year comes around.:cool:
