The melodies composed on the Schecter Hellraiser Solo II Electric Guitar literally serve as 'music to one's ears'. The rosewood fretboard offers bright treble notes with impressive clarity. The neck of this instrument is constructed from maple, which retains its strength and stability in any climatic condition. The set-in construction of the neck helps deliver warm, round tones in addition to offering easy access to all the upper frets. The EMG 89R pickup at the neck and EMG 81 pickup at the bridge provide a rich, articulate sound without interference. These pickups are suitable for playing a wide spectrum of tones, from jazz to hard rock.
