I ended up with two Schecter Hellraiser Special C8s (long story, so we'll skip how I got 2) just to find they were from different factories and had significant differences.. One is from South Korea and the other Indonesia. Apparently Schecter is making a lot of models in Indo now. I thought at first this might be a bad thing but I was proven wrong. The pictures aren't that hot but they'll show the big differences.. Korea on the left/Indo on the right Indo(right) has a darker/better looking top and better placement on the knobs Indo has pointier headstock This is not an illusion, that Korean(left) neck is noticeably thicker and the headstock is not angled back quite as far Indo body(right) is a tad bit thinner Backs are pretty much the same but Indo has better routing around the string ferrules.. Overall the Indo was more comfortable and had a better fretjob so I kept it and sold the Korean built guitar. .Hopefully this will be helpful to anyone who wants to know what has changed and which will be more desirable when purchasing..
