    Default Shecter Hellraisers Extreme, Blackjacks, and Cygnus

    I am going to put some more stuff up on the chopping block. Forum bros get first shot and a discount! Again, I won't be able to ship until July 6, and they will be going on the general market then. The forum discount will still apply, though.

    Hellraiser Extreme M: - $400.
    This is the best sounding guitar I have ever owned. It is currently set up to C with 11s, and for some reason has some tuning instability. It wasn't an issue until I had it set up to C with 11s. It was fine when I had 10s on it.

    Hellraiser Extreme E - $500
    Absolutely killer guitar.

    Blackjack ATX - $600
    I will be sad to see this go. I may change my mind. This is the best feeling, best playing guitar I have ever owned. I actually prefer the sound of the Hellraisers, but it is a very slight difference.

    Blackjack - $800
    This one I am least motivated to sell, so it is priced rather high. It has passive Nazgūl and Sentient pickups. Apparently these are pretty rare and hard to find, as well.

    Cygnus JLX-1 - $800
    BIG FRETS. This guitar sounds amazing. I don’t know if it is the Loomis pickups, Ash body, or a combination of the two. But this guitar sounds EVIL! It has a crack in the clearcoat at the neck joint by the battery compartment. It came like that. I could have sent it back, but they didn’t have another to replace it with, so what was I to do?

    All guitars are 100% stock and located in Cincinnati.

    I'd kill for that gloss blackjack if there were no FR... I LOVE the all black aesthetic and the no fretboard inlays. I had a blackjack ATX, comfortable as all hell I know what you mean by that. Hows the one with a Maple neck? Had a friend who came up on one for 350 and loves it

    It does have inlay; some red rings. They are hard to see.

    $350 is a steal for that guitar. It is awesome. It absolutely snarls tuned to C with the EMG 81 in the bridge. This is the guitar that got me into Schecter in the first place.

    You interested in trades at all? I have a Charvel San Dimas.
    I’m interested in a hell raiser.

    I found a buddy who wants that ATX. He asked where the electronics were haha I just noticed they were pulled out. Should add he only lives an hour away.

    I am not interested in trades, no.

    ...Unless you happen to have a lefty Steinberger, which I know the odds of ever finding one of those is about zero.

    OH! Yeah, I didn't explain that!

    All of these guitars are 100% stock and unmodified, including the wiring. The pots are still there and wired up just as they were when they left the factory. I just have them sitting with the knobs in the controls cavity because I never use them (I leave them up all the way all of the time) and they get in my way when I play. I would provide pictures if I were home to take them.

    The ATX has all 3 knobs buried rather than just 2 because unlike the Hellriasers and the other Blackjack, it doesn't have coil-splitting, so it doesn't have a push/pull pot. I do like to split the neck pickup.

    I would be happy to put the knobs back.

    Yep! I still have them all. I got cold feet on the whole deal. Plus I have been out of town so much I would hardly have had any time to ship anything out, anyway.

    Still got the ATX too? My buddy wanted that last time I spoke with him. I may be tempted to make an offer on the gloss black blackjack before the end of the year if some things turn around for me. Let me know I'll send you a message with his phone number.
