    Ive looked around and I dont know if my guitar is jsut special or something but I have a black C7 Hellraiser that has a binding around the body and the headstock. Even on the Schecter site their black hellraiser doesnt have binding on it. Whats the deal? Not saying its bad. I was jsut wondering. :scratch:

    The new ones have the pearl binding on the body, but its just on the sides now and not on the front like the older ones.

    The binding on black Hellraisers with floyds has always been on the front of the body + headstock whereas the black string-thru Hellraiser has it on the sides of the body + headstock.

    I think this year the binding on black string-thru Hellraisers may have been changed to the front so it falls in line with the white and black cherry models but I'm not too sure.

    The old ones have always had the body binding unless I'm mistaken or it could have had none at all...I think they didn't have any now that I think about it...*is confused* lol. Anyway if anything the new ones have purfling and the old ones didn't
