    Schecter Hellraiser C1 vs ESP LTD MH1001NT

    Hi there,
    I'm looking for a good quality metal rythm guitar that offers fat and full tone.

    Schecter Hellraiser C1 and LTD MH 1001NT seems to have have nice specs. The LTD is made is Indonedia and the Schecter in South Korea.
    The are pretty close in terms of specifications.

    The LTD got maple neck and the Hellraiser mahogany.

    I have had the Hellraiser in my hands, and i remember they are good quality and fat sounding.

    Anyone who had the opportunity to play own or play both?

    Thnaks.

    You probably can't go wrong with either one. Just play them both and buy the one that feels best to you. If you don't have a guitar store nearby to go try them out, order from a place that has no hassle returns then you can always send back the one you don't love as much.
    Don't expect much, it's not like I'm a Rocket Surgeon...

      I've never played the LTD, but I've owned a Hellraiser and they're pretty damn solid if you can get along with the big ass necks. The downside is that they have a zillion tons of gaudy abalone all over them.

        I've owned both a Hellraiser and an LTD 7 string in the past. It all depends on your preference for neck thickness. Sonic differences can be compensated for with pickups that compliment the guitar.

          If Affliction designed a guitar, it would be the Hellraiser.

            This is very true.

              Don't get me wrong, I had one and loved it. It was ugly AF though

                I'm only familiar with the 7 string versions of these, but fwiw I had one of the first run of the C7 Hellraisers way back when. Played and sounded great, as long as you're okay with the thicker neck. TBH I'm not sure why I sold it, other than the aforementioned fugliness.

                I'm actually looking at the LTD MH1007 myself right now. I played one with a floyd rose (ew) in a store recently because it was the only one I could find nearby to try out. It felt great and the finish on it seemed excellent. If not for the floyd I might have walked out with it.

                  I'm biased for the LTD, but I think they're nice guitars. And they've dialed down the bling, which is great. the Hellraiser is great, but I can't deal with the abalone. I'd go for another Schecter, if you go that route.

                    A brand new ltd will have stainless steel frets. Aside from that they are basically the same guitar, unless something has changed.

                      I have a Schecter C-1 FR-S, and it is an amazing guitar. You can't go wrong. You also can't go wrong with the higher end LTDs, I still have my GL500K. Both are great guitars. You can't go wrong with either one.

                          I can't tell if this is sarcastic due to the lingo lol. But yeah, 2021 1000's got the stainless treatment. Not something I care about but I'll pick one up to try if I see one.

                            IMO stainless frets is pretty much the biggest upgrade you can do to any guitar, providing the fretwork is up to snuff, but that goes with any guitar regardless of fret material. Stainless frets make bends, vibrato, etc, everything feel so slick.

                            Pickups can be easily swapped out, hardware upgraded, etc, but frets just aren't something any person can swap out.

                              If I was buying I would go with LTd, I just like LTD guitars. Buy the one feels right for you.
