Keeping with the standard line features, the Damien Riot includes a 25-1/2" scale rosewood/maple bolt-on neck with black pearl bat inlays and an evil satin black finish. The sleek horns and full cutaway allows easy access to the upper frets, while the EMG-HZ pickups and string-through body design provide hard hitting sounds to punish the unfaithful. Schecter tuners and a GraphTech nut round out the package.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Riot Electric Guitar:
Great body shape, balances well either sitting or standing. The EMG humbuckers are full-on heavy metal pickups, with a good reputation, and they work as expected. The control cavity appears well-shielded, and the wiring is nice and tidy. The Grover tuners are smooth, and hold tune very well. Factory set-up is top-notch, action is low without buzzing, just needed a tiny bit of tweaking to the intonation. The satin black finish on the body looks great, and seems to be quite durable. The neck is straight as an arrow, with a nice thin finish on the back that lets you slide up and down effortlessly. The fingerboard is a nice thick piece of rosewood, and the frets are low and wide for easy bending. Speaking of the frets, they are well finished, with no rough edges, and no high/low spots that I can find. Haven't tried adjusting the truss rod yet, as there hasn't been any need to. The only weak point I can find is the truss rod cover, which is held on with one screw, and flops around, even with the screw fully tightened. I may add another screw to hold it in place more securely. All in all, an excellent guitar, especially at this price point.
