    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    This Schecter is nice, I have the Damien Elite-7 in metallic black. Having seven strings really increases your dynamic range. I used to play strictly Ibanez for my metal madness, but while shopping for a seven string I fell for this Schecter.

    The frets seemed to be well dressed and the action is great. The neck is thin and fast. Tones are deep and tight. There is some light fret buzz but thats to be expected from huge strings and low tunings. The EMG's are like what you would expect active EMG's to be, they really bring out the natural tones of this Mahogany. Put a sweat band behind the nut to take care of the string chirp and you've got yourself a br00tal beast ready for Nekrogoblikon.

    The only things I've found that I dislike is that there is no forearm cut on the body, so it kinda gets a little uncomfortable to play while sitting. Also, the heel on the neck joint could be a little more ergonomic.

    I use this Damien Elite 7 mainly for recording insane rhythm riffs with Logic Pro, but it also sounds great plugged directly into my Blackstar.

    BEST SEVEN STRING EVER!

    By Cliff Smith

    from Tennessee

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    For the longest time, I was skeptical about 7 string and 8 string guitars. My skepticism of these guitars changed completely Christmas Eve of last year when I went to a local music store and saw the Schecter Damien Elite 7 string on a guitar rack behind the counter. Being curious about the guitar, I kindly asked the man if I could play it. The man said I could and then handed me the guitar. When I hooked it up to a well distorted amp, it sounded incredible and I just had to get one. A couple of months and payments later, I finally got my very own Schecter Damien Elite 7 string. Here's my thoughts on the specs and sound of this guitar... 1: The weight of this guitar is fairly light and well balanced which makes it more enjoyable when you're playing live, practicing with the band, or just sitting and playing. 2: I'm not going to lie, the extra jumbo frets took a little bit to getting used to. But with the smoothness of the maple neck and the feel of the strings up against the rosewood fretboard, it didn't take long at all. If you're a guitarist that like to do sweeps, taps, runs, and alternate speed picking over the scales, This is definitely the guitar for you. 3: I was actually stunned about how the active EMG pickups sounded in this guitar. Although I've never been a big fan of active EMGs partially due the fact you got to stock up on 9 volt batteries and some of them just sound like garbage, these actives sound really cool. Just depends on what amp you hook it up to I guess. Overall, this guitar is a true metal machine. After I played this guitar for the first time, I instantly became a fan of Schecter guitars because of the quality of the sound, design and feel of the instrument. They take time and effort to making some of the best guitars I've ever played. I honestly don't think you'll find a better guitar with the true metal sound like this one anywhere else.

    Bought as Gift

    By Eric Bussear

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    I purchased as X-mas gift for my son who so far loves it. Has some getting used to but has enjoyed immensely. The whole process of ordering through to delivery went off without a hitch. I would recommend using in the future. I have also ordered other items with the same smooth order and delivery outcomes. Only thing from a 10 is overall prices. There are less expensive routes to take which come at a price of my time which seems to be less and less daily.

    awesome guitar

    By Alex Bugella

    from CT

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    i love this guitar. it sounds heavy, fast to play and the 7th string makes it even more fun. if you play metal and want a 7 string get this guitar
    this guitar makes heck of a sound with the emgs. i was going to switch out for blackouts but after hearig the sound i get i really dont want to loose that sound. the neck is fast, the jumbo frets make it very easy to play and so mumch fun with the 7th string
    when i got the guitar it looked just as good as the pictures and the pickups are awesome. the only thing is that i came way out of tune but after tuning it, it stays tuned.
    there are a lot of guitars that you can buy for a lot more and get the same sound and look, and those would only be 6 strings... the fact that its this price, looks incredible and sounds nice and heavy and your looking for a guitar made for metal, look no further.

    The Best Birthday Gift Ever...

    By Cher T

    from Tampa Bay, Florida

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this guitar for my son for his 16th birthday. While most kids this age want a car for their birthday, my son wanted this seven string guitar desperately. The guitar itself was absolutely beautiful. The sound quality of this guitar is simply amazing. Nice deep tones. The crimson color is magnificent and really stands out among his collection of 12 guitars. The guitar is not too heavy. He said it felt really good in his hands. Being a lefty, he often has trouble with certain guitars not accommodating the way he prefers to hold his guitars when he plays, but this was not a problem with this particular instrument. He proceeded to play the heck out of the thing all night long and he is exceptionally happy with it. Mom reaped all the rewards of a really happy kid. Tons of hugs, kisses and even a Facebook status about how awesome Mom is. Mom's live for this stuff and this guitar and Guitar Center did not disappoint in the least. As for Guitar Center, they are always our "go to" place for my sons instruments, replacement parts and all our guitar needs. They shipped quickly. The guitar came beautifully packaged, wrapped very intensely to protect it and all its components. My son will be making beautiful, albeit LOUD, music on this bad boy for a LONG time to come. It takes a LOT to impress a 16 year old kid but Guitar Center manages to keep my son happy...and when the kid is happy, Mom is happy. And truthfully? It's all about Mom. Mom is pleased.

    GREAT!!

    By TrevorTree

    from So Cal

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    I played this guitar at GuitarCenter, when i first picked it up and started playing, I was confused on why it felt a little wierd and my playing was off, Thats when I realized it was a 7 String! The neck is so great you can barely tell its a 7 string! Its not hard to adjust from a 6 string to this 7 string!

    Amazing guitar

    By TAyBArnes

    from Illinois

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    I picked this guitar up yesterday after trying several other 7 string guitars. This was the absolute best one i played. I even thought it sounded better than the hellraiser c-7, but tht could have just been the way it was set up with kids messin with it and stuff. But right after playing the guitar i bought it, there was no question that i loved this guitar. if you want to get into seven string playing or you are a 7 string player and want a great guitar i advise getting this one.

    my first 7 string

    By Taylor Barnes

    from Chenoa,IL

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

    This is my first seven string guitar and i absolutley love it. Ive been playing regular 6 stings for about 12 years so i know the difference between a good quality guitar and a lesser quality one. The moment i pluged this guitar in it was like "eletric dinamite" in my finger tips. I bought this thing after playing at a near by guitar center. I love the metalic black finish. I use EMGs in my favorite 6 sting guitar and its amazing to have them in my seven string too, beautiful sound and amazing looks on this guitar, what more could you ask for? I completely advise buying this guitar if your into getting a 7 string.
