    Here's the news I've heard on it (from Willie Gee):

    Jeff himself actually doesn't know what it's going to be and Schecter is on his ass because they want it for the summer NAMM. The only thing I was let in on is that Jeff wants it to have a maple, red sunburst fretboard(?).

    I'm quite happy with just the vanilla Hellraiser. I have to say... I hope Jeff tells them to design the guitar so that the reach up to the 24th fret is more comfortable.

    That, coupled with a tremolo of sorts would constitute my ideal metal guitar.

    I've always preffered more options to less. That was the idea behind getting a 7 string in the first place. Tremolo gives more options, and I don't switch between tunings very often, so as far as I can see, it's more suited to my purposes.

    My problem is that strings take so long to stretch on a 6, I don't even want to think about that 60 or 65 you're going to be putting down to B or Bb.

    I always thought sex would sound like the solo in Faith No More's song Be Aggresive - sloppy and out of control with no attention paid to the surroundings (would normally be called 'wanking' but being in a song about blowjobs it fits).
