A double-cutaway with a set neck, EMG pickups and locking tremolo.

The Schecter Damien Platinum 6 Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose has a double-cutaway mahogany body, set 3-pc maple neck, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. It's loaded with the classic combination of an EMG-81 active humbucker in the bridge position and an EMG-85 active humbucker in the neck position for all the heavy rock tones you need. Grover tuning machines with a Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo bridge allow for massive tremolo effects, as well as total tuning stability and tonal sustain. The electric guitar's appointments include bat inlays, multi-ply fretboard and body binding, and satin chrome hardware.

Grover tuners
ROTOMATICS WITH 18:1 GEAR RATIO (102-18 SERIES) The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination

Rosewood fingerboard
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

EMG Active 81/85 pickups
One of the most popular EMG's the 81 is the one that started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. When used in both neck and bridge positions the sound can only be described as blistering. Recommended pairings include the classic 81/85 setup.

3-pc Maple neck
Made with 3 pieces of maple for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Case sold separately.

    As reviewed by Zack Apostol on 6/19/2013

    This guitar is a machine, If you play metal this Schecter Damien Platinum Floyd Rose is the one for you. Why? because the Floyd Rose gives you a tremendous effect, the Schecter Damien Platinum is some kind of monster it plays really good. Its an affordable price, good for solos and riffs if you play metal.

    As reviewed by del on 7/4/2015

    I was looking to retrofit my Jackson copy (which I was satisfied with)with a pair of EMG's but decided the cost wouldn't be worth it, so on a whim, decided to go whole hog on a new axe. I tried some ESP's and a Jackson (all EMG 81/85's and 1 ESP branded active)at GC, but kept coming back to this one because of it's playability and feel. I can say without exaggeration this is one the axes that will improve your playing: fast neck with almost no dead spots that picks up EVERY note, effortless harmonics, useful tone and volume controls, deep Floyd cutout for a floating trem, tight low end and ready to play out the box. Deceptively ordinary until you push the EQ to +20dB, then its pure surreal beast! Fit and finish are incredible for a guitar at this price point. At this point, I am having a hard time going back to my old axe. I was looking for the cliched EMG growl, but was pleasantly surprised by the flexibility of the instrument running through a standard 6AX7, EL34 100W setup; Think RR Flyin' High Again, Jake E Lee-Bark at the Moon, Joe Satriani, Nile Rodgers, Vinnie Vincent, Ernie Isley, Dimebag, In Living Colour and of course vintage Metallica..still experimenting after a few months. I give it a true score of 4.5 stars only because I ran into a couple of dead spots on the high E and B and the volume knob placement doesn't allow for easy manual volume swells, but these are minor quibbles in an overall outstanding instrument which I've become addicted to playing. Highly recommended! I will be taking a look at some of the other Schecter's in the future!

  • Awesome guitar!

    As reviewed by forrest on 10/13/2014

    i bought this back in April and after having a few months to play it and get comfortable with it i gotta say that is a blast to play on. it sounds great and the floyd rose really gives you the ability to play some awesome stuff. not only does it sound and play awesome but it looks amazing. the guitar center i bought this at had just opened and as soon as i saw it i fell in love. i can move up and down the fret board with ease and it just feels "right". its construction feels very solid and ive yet to get any scratches or anything on it. over all id say its definitely worth the money.
