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.

They priced this guitar much too low.

By Guitbox978

from Brick, New Jersey

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

I loved this guitar, I tried it out for hours at a Guitar Center store. It was a mighty guitar, the feel and handling of a guitar that would be 3 times as much. This guitar has strong durablility but it's a beautiful guitar. The sound is amazing it can be transformed from anything like shredding metal to a soft sound. This a top quality guitar that is worth 3 times the amount it is now. All in all this is a must buy excellent guitar.

Schecter Damien

By hittingthebong420

from Minnesota

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar, and wow was I amazed! The EMG's are perfect for a low-toned metal sound, and I can make it squeel with ease. The Schecter Damien stays in tune amazingly well too. The jumbo frets are perfect for solos, and the action is perfect. Buy this guitar!

REALLY GREAT FOR SUCH AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

By systematicdownfall19

from Undisclosed

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

i was looking for a guitar that plays good and isn't hard on the budget. surpisingly, i got just what i wanted. the schecter damien 6 was all i needed, although i was aiming for the FR. the tone is great for real crunchy tones and for clean ones too. i use it a lot on metal and hard rock but i don't see a problem when using it for cleaner sounds like jazz and blues. i think the only problem with it is it's a bit heavy, compared to some of the guitars i own. all in all...it's really worth every penny. perhaps it's a bit under-priced. this should be more expensive then it is.

awsome

By manu

from Clinton,MS

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

this guitar is the best thing since Gibson guitars! It's perfect for rock, but my favorite thing is when you turn on clean,use the fret pickups, and pull on the tone knob.That activates the clean-machine pickups.B-E-A-U-tiful sound and quality.4 years of playing and this is perfect for a beginner or a pro.BUY IT AND YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED!!

Schecter Damien 6

By Ringo

from Northern New Jersey

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

I recently purchased the Damien 6. Wow, what an awesome guitar. The EMG's make a perfect sound to trigger that specific style Im trying to acomplish. For this price, you will NOT find another guitar that comes close to 1)sound 2)quality 3)comfort 4)style. The bat inlays are awesome, and the way they are layed out is perfect. Even a beginner can read the fret distance with ease.

This Axe Rocks!

By Protools1983

from Tampa

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

The Schecter Damien was EXACTLY what I was looking for in a guitar. Beutiful body complete with "flying bat" inlays, EMG pickups that growl, and a very comfortable neck. The action is perfect right out of the box. This guitar is severly under priced. You will not find better tone and quality for less!

Great guitar

By Tom in Pa

from Allentown, Pa

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

I have 5 custom Ibanez's and took a chance on this guitar after playing a used one in a local shop. I bought it and did a complete set up myself. I love this guitar. Damien 6 model. I think it has a great heavy sound from the EMG pickups and it completely stays in tune no matter how hard I play it. I love it! 100% Easy to tune on the fly or create different style sounds from it.

Definately worth getting

By Schecter22ac

from Sacremento, California

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

Well were to begin i played this guitar for the first time around a month ago and i go every weeek just to play this guitar. Every time i walk in GC its the first guitar that i pull of the rack (usually the only one). Without even playing the guitar you can tell it is made with special care. The inlays are gorgeous the guitar is light and it feels amazing. Of course you cant go wrong with emg's the tone on this beauty is just incredible no buzz comes from these pickups. It can handle insane distortion and soft clen playing all with ease. The neck is small fast and very comfortable id reccomend replacing the stock strings but everything else stock on this guitar is perfect. Ive played ibanez guitars and jackson guitars in this price range it none can compare to this wonderful guitar. If youve ever played a schecter you know that they create amazing guitars this is definately one of them.

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.

Wow...

By Mike

from Palmdale, CA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

Ok, so after playing pretty much every guitar that I could afford and reach on the wall at the store, I stumbled across the Damien, I loved it when I first played it, nice thick neck, nice and heavy so it feels solid in my hands. The looks are great, totally gives off the dark vibe if thats what your going for, but it plays very fast and very loud which is a good thing. Only thing is maybe put in the active EMG's but other than that it is great out of the box with minimal set up.

Shred,White, and Blue

By Jace

from Weaver, AL

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar for Christmas and have been shredding it on my new B-52 AT 112(also highly reccomended) and i havent gone out of tune the entire time! it also helps that it has a nice stable TOM bridge when you want to jam some Suicide Silnece after some Paramore, so it handles drop tunings very well.EMG HZ Pickups, while not Active give you nice distortion and decent cleans.Out of all this my favorite feature of the guitar is the light Basswood body for some extra br00t4l crabcorin'. i reccomend this guitar to everyone who enjoys playing as much as i do. NO FLAWS thanks schecter

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!

Ehh Guitar

By Alexz

from St. Peters Missouri

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is absolutely stunning when it comes to looks. But as far as tone goes, it just didn't live up to my expectations. When I plugged it into my Zoom G2 and Crate DXB112, I expected an amazing sound due to all the positive reviews, but sadly I was mistaken. I was hoping that I could get a perfect metal sound that I was looking for as well as a nice clean. But I didn't get either very well. I would suggest that the stock EMG H/Z pickups be replaced immediately because they just can't handle what it's made for, EMG 81 and EMG 85s will be your best bet. Don't let this review deter you though, try it out for yourself!

Sick Guitar! Highly Recomended

By Jay

from Carpinteria, CA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 Electric Guitar:

I had been looking at a Schecter Damien FR, but I didn't like how the Floyd Rose worked, so I got this instead. It plays great and looks amazing! Awesome action, pick-ups sound great for various styles (great metal tone). This guitar is also a great deal, I tried various other guitars in the same price range, but this one really sounded and felt better.

Yes the EMGs are very awwsum and i cant imagine playing any other guitar because this damien is very sleak and doesnt weigh me down like all those other huge and tedious guitars. it stays in tune for a good while and if you're into rock/metal BUY IT!
