Is $350 an insane deal for a Hellraiser C-7?

    I found a cat who is selling his Schecter Hellraiser C-7, string through body, with only a tiny blemish on the headstock, solid black finish, with the standard EMGs, for $350. Not sure what year, but it looks pretty nice. Forgive my inexperience, but considering that an axe like that retails for $850, would I be an absolute fool pass it up?

    Cheers. :metal:

    That's a pretty good deal. If it has black instead of black chrome hardware, it could be a pre-08 model.

    it's not an extremely good deal. But it's a pretty good one. I'd say go for it.

    it's a decent deal... I usually see them go for around $400 or so, so anything cheaper than that is a deal depending on condition

    Yep, very good deal! I got the one I had for $299 plus shipping. Great price for that guitar. You won't be disappointed.

    It's a good deal if the neck is straight and the frets are leveled.
