    Hellraiser C-7 Extreme, Dark red with maple fretboard which i love. Sadly, it was discontinued years ago and bought hellraiser c7 instead. Anyone has idea where in Europe i Can get it ? Any store that has used gear from the past? I known its a stupid question but i have gas for it. Shame that Schecter doesn't make them anymore.

    Make an eBay account and set up some alerts. Also set up alerts on other sites like gumtree, reverb, etc.

    Back in college my roommate got a Schecter A7+ from 1999 for like $150, and I swore that one day I would find a left-handed version since I liked it so much, and I knew from the catalog they did make a lefty. My eBay alert did eventually chime, and I got one. Never seen another one for sale since.

    dude go on Guitar Center's website and browse through their used gear. Schecters go pretty cheap used. I've had plenty of good luck through their used gear program having guitars from all over the country shipped to me. They may ship internationally.

    Yep. Minus the Floyd.

    EDIT: Actually double checked - apparently he had a non-Floyd signature, too. I did not know.

    Dude I've found a dead mint 1997 Schecter A-7 within the last 3 years. You'll find one of those, I'm sure.

    In fact, I just bought a dead mint 1999 RG7620GN as well...

    That Schecter can be found. :agreed:

    Depending on which generation Loomis, the maple is not always yellow.

    It goes without saying that you don't find that sort of stuff every day, but if you patiently stalk Reverb long enough, sometimes good things happen.

    You can tell the early loomis models apart because they had the yellow neck (and thicker, I hear).

    It also bears mentioning that the Loomis was ash, whereas OP's C-7 is mahogany. Granted, if he's primarily interested in it for its aesthetic, yeah, it's pretty damn close.
