If you love metal and you need a great sounding guitar but your low on money... Here is the guitar for you. It is pretty good for a pinched harmonic if you know how to do it. You don't really have to be a pro to use this guitar. It is pretty heavy but not that hard to play with a strap on(just make sure it is padded). It is a high quality guitar with alot of feature and a great value. This item is not for beginners though, so you might not want to buy it for your little shredder.

The Schecter Damien FR is a decent guitar, but I don't think it's worth the 5-star ratings I see here. I've owned one and I've played it quite a bit. I also traded it off for a different guitar. First of all, the Damien FR is very heavy. And I don't mean musically. I mean it's physically a very heavy guitar. The neck is smooth and playable, but it's quite chunky and adds too much weight to the guitar, not to mention unbalances it. The licensed Floyd Rose tremolo doesn't stay in tune very well at all in standard tuning with the factory-installed strings. You're going to have to either re-string it with 9s or tune it down a step or so. Either way, it's going to need to be setup all over again. The EMG-HZ pickups are supposedly passive versions of EMGs 81 and 89 pickups, and while the neck pickup is warm and bassy and good for clean tones, the bridge pickup is a bit thin and weak-sounding for much of anything distorted. And the sustain on this thing is practically non-existant. All in all, it's not really a bad guitar. But you get what you pay for, and this one is pretty cheap.

First Schecter

By Josh Garcia

from Sidney, Ohio

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

I own this guitar and its awesome. I bought the Schecter Damien 6 FR in 2010 I think and it still plays and sounds like new. The neck is nice, thin, and fast. A buddy of mine has the regular Damien 6 and he said to go for this guitar if you want a great sounding metal guitar. The body is nice too. The EMG pickups, (H4 and H4A), sound nice and heavy especially when you play drop d metal or hard rock. The Floyd is also nice. You can get perfect harmonics on the metal frets if you want to do the Dime squeels with your Floyd. I highly recommend this guitar and or the regular Damien 6 if you're a metal head like me. 5 stars from me. Oh and this guitar is perfect for metal, hardcore, metalcore, and deathcore. Rock not so much though for the guitar is too heavy sounding I think but thats me.

Excellent intermediate instrument

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

I received this guitar after winning a bet against my father (ha ha;D) at 12 and it has never failed me. My only real concern is that, as my first legitimate guitar, the floyd rose was and still is infinitely frustrating for me, and it really limits your ability to experiment with alternate tuning. However that was easily fixed with a tremol-no and now i'm playing in C# standard all day every day. The pickups are absolutely wonderful as an alternative to actives for metal. They produce some very mellow bassy cleans (which even out nicely with a compressor) and very powerful high-gain. As it is intended, it can chugalug with ease and produce all the "core" a lot of the metal kids are looking for, while still easily able to shred. The only technical problem i've had was the output jack came loose and had to be rewired. As previously mentioned it IS very heavy, so a padded strap is a must.

awesome guitar

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

bought this guitar a few years ago, and leaving feedback now to get an accurate review. the guitar has stayed in the shape its been in since the day i bought it. it stays in tune nicely, plays easily, and is an overall great guitar to play. one grumbling, the stock emg's don't necessarily put out a whole ton of punch, and they hum too. i switched over to seymour duncan's blackouts and it was much better for me, but thats just my opinion. overall, i would definitely buy it again

You want this guitar. No, you NEED this guitar.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

Where do I even begin? This guitar is just a remarkable piece of work. If you're into any kind of music from classic rock to heavy metal, this guitar can take you there. I'm more of a metal head than anything but when I play this guitar on Clean, it sounds great. The style of the guitar is definately hard rock and/or metal but don't let that stop all of you blues or soft guitar players. I'd recommend this guitar to ANYBODY, even you just started playing guitar. This guitar is worth way more than what your paying so go out and get one.

Love this guitar

By Adam K.

from Michigan

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for round about ten months. I am so satisfied. I've only been playing for two and half years, but I progress fast. This guitar is really good for metal. What I have found is that the bridge pick-up is good for distortion, the middle position is good for clean sounds, and the neck pick-up is good for acoustic sounds. The guitar stays in tune really well, even after abusing the Floyd. The only downside I can think of is that the clean sounds doesn't sound the best. I have to use a Pick-Up emulator and switch it to a Single-Coil sound. Otherwise, this guitar is amazing. Everyday I look at this guitar and think, "I love this guitar. I am so lucky to have." The guitarist from my church who has been playing for over twenty years is very pleased with this guitar as well. We went to Guitar Center when I was looking at this guitar a while back, and he approved. I've played everything from Avenged Sevenfold to Paul Baloche on this guitar, and was satisfied with it. I used this guitar for a concert my church put on this past Summer, and everyone complimented me on the guitar, and the excellent sound. I highly recommend this guitar.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

i played this through a line 6 amp at guitar center. it had amazing playability , and roaring tone. It has a much better sound than my fender tele. And the FR allows you to release a dive bomb whenever you may please.

Decent Guitar but Far from the best Value

By Brian Smith

from Saint Louis MO

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar a year or two ago. I agree with the regular comments, its heavy, and all that. It does not have the greatest sound for the price thats for sure. My previous guitar was an ibanez s370 and the cound was way better and the price is about the same. I am planning on trying out the zakk wylde pick ups in it and see how it changes the tone. There is a ton of string noise through my pick ups. The playing is not the fastest but it is ok. The saving grace of this guitar is the look. The flat black with bat inlays is awesome looking. Its a shame they spent all the money on looks and not quality though. Had to purchase a new jack nut and had a striped string height nut and also had to get the tremelo reset as well.
