What's great about it: Whats not?
What's not so great: minor things
Great, no, amazing sound(useing a spider IV amp), Easy to play, Nice to the player. Looks good, Stays tuned.This is a over all amazing guitar i've been hunting for awhile before i found this.
Still waiting for bestbuy to get my bar, and wrench. WHICH is included so ask and look for it. scraches on the back(got discount so its okay) didnt get the 50 dollor discount until to late, becasue it was not given to me. So Remember when buying any guitar to ask for what comes with it, and if there is any other discounts.
But i am Very happy with it, and now looking for an acustic i will start here with best buy

What's great about it: The action is set low and it plays as comfortable as any other high end guitar.
What's not so great: I am a bit rusty and need to practice more. This guitar deserves a better musician!
I was able to get this at a reduced price because it was a floor model. After getting it home and playing it, I would not have hesitated to purchase at full price, as it is, I am lucky to have got the deal I did. Awesome craftsmanship, through and through. A fine instrument with the legendary EMG pickup combo that will give you just about any tone you could want. If you are looking for a BIG upgrade from your pawn shop guitar with an affordable price, this is your ax!

What's great about it: this guitar is great. stays in tune even after brutal dive bombs and squeals. I can reach every fret and even bend the24
What's not so great: nothing is bad about this guitar
This guitar is a perfect guitar for many styles of music. I love this guitar to death. I can reach every note on the guitar and even bend the 24 fret up a whole step plus. The battery last months if you don't leave it plugged in. Sounds killer through my Marshall jcm 800 and fender deville. The distortions is brutal and it even stays clean when on a clean channel. I play jazz on it from time to time for its nice tone.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Great sound, stays in tune.
What's not so great: Floyd Rose Bridge makes changing strings and tuning more difficult.
This is an awesome guitar for the price. The active pickups have a good, clean sound, and vibrant tone. The pickups are interesting in that they are double-coil, but can function individually as single-coil by pulling the control knobs. The pickups require a 9-volt battery that lasts me for months.
Overall, the guitar has a lot of versatility. I like it because it can work for a variety of music (metal, rock, blues, etc). I own several eletric guitars, and the Hellraiser is easily my favorite.
The main downside to this guitar is the Original Floyd Rose Bridge. You will need a professional to setup the guitar if you change string guages, and it can be challenging to tune properly if you are not familar with the FR bridges. However, once you get the guitar in tune, it stays there.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: awesome action and tone
What's not so great: none
This guitar has massive tone with its active EMG pickups, and the action on it is amazing even with the Floyd Rose, which is super responsive, just an all around good guitar!
