Overview

The Schecter Damien 6 Electric Guitar was built on Schecter's popular Classic "C" body style and it's the perfect hard rock guitar. The EMG-H4 bridge and H4A neck passive humbucker pickups rock out some killer tone, and the rock maple neck has a rosewood fretboard with extra-jumbo frets so you can pound out face-shredding leads. Black hardware and black bat inlays complement the aggressive sound of the Damien 6 perfectly.

So I got this guitar as a birthday gift to myself in 09' and I was WAY overly impressed. However, after learning much more and whatnot I figured I'd give a better review. The guitar is extremely heavy for it's looks, but to me it gives it a better tone than most lighter ones. The tuners are super easy to tune up and put new strings on. The pickups are excellent, GREAT for pinch-harmonics as well as clean standard tunings. The finish looks great and never smudges seeing as though it's a matte black that matches perfectly the overall look of it with the bat inlays. However there are a few negative things that I've noticed progressing as a guitarist- The finish where your hand rests kind of bubbles up a little bit, but that's expected from a matte finshed guitar and is almost invisible unless looking for it. The pickup selector could have been a little better made, seeing asthough it was wobbly and loose after only a few months of playing. Both of which negative things are little nit-picky things that are easily over looked cause' of the overall character is just astounding. Kind of like having a golfball sized dent in a 2011 Camaro, yeah kinda sucks but, I mean, look at everything else! haha, however there is one thing that is extremely annoying at times. If you're playing heavier stuff, and buying this guitar i doubt you'll be playing much Kenny Chesney, it gets out of tune quickly. I play mainly in drop C, and after a good 20 minute session it's pretty badly out-of-tune on the higher F A D (GBe)strings. I use alot of pinch harmonics on those strings, and when playing the pinch harmonics, your going to need to tune it pretty much inbetween songs because bending them with the pinch-harmonic pretty much murders the tuning. But tuning it back up a little bit takes a whole 30 seconds so it's not that big of deal. EXCCELLENT guitar, my next will be a Schecter as well. hope this was helpful!

ive played this guitar many times in different shops. it started at love at first sight, but that changed over time... at first it sounded great! but the more i played, the more lackluster it became. The sound was crunchy, almost to much so. and the neck was slow, and just felt cheap. not to mention the underside is a bright, almost yellow stain, and looks awkward with the flat black paint (which i really liked). ill also mention that half the time i played it, the guitar was out of tune, despite its locking nut. and lastly, this guitar is heavy! ive NEVER felt a guitar this heavy before. i couldnt believe it. anyway, im looking more toward the C-1 hellraiser now. it manages to look better, and it plays way better.

VERY DARK

By R Young

from Chapel Hill, NC

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

Ok before I start this review I would like to specify THIS IS A EVIL GUITAR. Have had this guitar for about half a year and it does well in all the basics, it stays in tune, it's very sturdy, and it looks great. As for the sound and playability it is pretty good, it's easy to navigate the neck, you can get VERY high VERY easily. The sound is meant pretty much for metal and metal only. The only reason I gave this four stars is because it only plays one genre. The EMGs make it sound great for rhythm guitars and drop D and drop C tuning. Once again I'll specify that you pretty much need to like metal and rock to play this and once again, THIS IS A EVIL GUITAR!

nice

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

i played this guitar last week at my local guitar center. and i thought it was a very sweet guitar for the price. i looked at one for the longest time but it actually surprised me how nice this guitar is and i kind of regret not buying one. pickups are actually very nice and crunchy for distortion, solid feeling guitar, finish and pickups give it a really clean metal look.

quite impressive!

By Chris

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

Finally i've saved up just enough money to buy a decent guitar, so today i asked my parents to take me to guitar center just to look because for now im just looking. this guitar kinda catches my eye so i decided to check it out. man i swear,this was the most amazing thing i have ever played! Man this thing SCREAMS! when your playing it with distortion and effects and stuff, and still sounds amazing clean! Exactly what im looking for. it only took a few seconds for me to relize this very well may be the guitar im going to buy. did i mention this fits right into my budget? the only thing is that i wish it came in a high gloss, very dark, black. AWSOME!

Perfect

By Andrew

from Westmont, Illinois

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

This was my 2nd guitar and going from a Fender Squier to a Schecter Damien 6, is a big step up. This guitar has everything i wanted. Good pickups, its pretty light, doesnt go out of tune, it looks incredible. The only thing i would think make this guitar even better is a set neck with ultra access, apposed to its bolt on.

Epic.

By Daniel

from Orlando, Florida

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is great. I mainly play metal/hardcore music and i believe this guitar was made for it. It plays distortion amazingly and also plays cleans beautifully, you're pretty much getting the best of both worlds with this thing. I personally think the bat inlays are pretty awesome, but that actually depends on the person buying it. The EMG are pretty epic, no need to switch them out. The action is perfect, it barely ever gets out of tune, the satin black is perfect, that way you dont have to worry about those annoying fingerprints left on other glossy-black guitars. You can pretty much run this guitar through any amp, and it will still make people want to punch babies from the brutalness. Simply amazing guitar. Worth every penny and is definitely very underpriced.
