Push/pull coil-splitting volume knobs can give you single-coil tones for greater dynamic options. And of course, the guitar isn’t bad to look at, either. The binding has been specifically made to complement the beautiful finish, and black chrome hardware round out the Hellraiser C-1 FR's awesome look. Models with Black Cherry finish come with a quilted maple top.
