Overview

The Schecter Damien Elite FR electric guitar has a gorgeous quilted maple top, a double-cutaway mahogany body, bolt-on maple neck, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard.

Grover tuning machines with a Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo bridge allow for the most unreal tremolo effects ever, as well as total tuning stability and tonal sustain. The electric guitar's appointments include stained cross inlays, multi-ply fretboard and body binding, and black chrome hardware.

Very reliable guitar! Schecter delivers!

By 

from London, KY

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite FR Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for 2 years now and it is great! The EMG's are great for high gain heavy metal, and you can flip to the neck pickup for a great clean, jazzy sound. The guitar has a beautiful finish with a smooth neck and the playability and versatility of it just never ceases to amaze me! A steal for the price!

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite FR Electric Guitar:

I spent lots of time trying to find a good guitar for a good price, and this one was perfect. I went to Guitar Center to find that it was on sale, played it a little, and 2 days later, I bought it. First of all, this thing is beautiful. I got the dark metallic blue finish and it looks awesome. The fret inlays are pretty sweet too. The action is great, and the guitar isn't really light or heavy. The EMG's sound amazing as I expected, and along with my Peavey 6505 combo, I couldn't ask for a better metal combo. This is my first Floyd Rose guitar, and it is great so far; I haven't encountered any problems. This is a great guitar for your first Floyd Rose because you can do so many cool things with it. I have barely found a down side to this guitar, the clean setting isn't the best but it is better than I expected for a Schecter. For the price, I don't think there is much better of a guitar to buy. Don't waste your time, this thing is too awesome to not buy it.

Awesome

By

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite FR Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about 4 months ago and it's totally awesome. It's physically beautiful and it's sound is amazing with it's 81 and 85 EMG's. If you like to play some heavy stuff i think it's just the guitar for you. The floyd rose tremolo is also perfect for playing good solos, it stays in tune for weeks.

Very nice

By 

from Roslyn, NY

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite FR Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar now for about 3 months and its great. The locking system is great to keep it in tune even after dive bombs and an hour of bending. The bridge pick up is very clean and the neck pick up is very edgy and great for soloing. The middle channel is a bit muddy when used with distortion but I'm using a line 6 spider IV 75w (no tube amp for me). Also it's set up for 10's so if you like 9's you're going to have to spend a little more to get it set up. Overall great buy and I couldn't be happier.
