I've been playing guitar for about 13 years now. I've always owned cheaper electrics, the nicest one being a $300 Ibanez Artcore hollow body. Over the last few years, my tastes have shifted to rock and metal, so I went in looking for something with great action, a thin neck and exceptional tone. After an hour of trying out 5 different guitars and brands, the Schecter Demon 6 was the clear winner. The pickups offer a great, balanced tone. The cleans sound very full, like you could take this guitar straight into the studio! The neck is nice and thin, and the action is great all the way up to the 24th fret as well. Most importantly, I can solo on it and it stays in perfect tune! I would recommend this guitar all day long for someone that has a $400 price range.

Feels great. Fret buzz on low e (small adjustment to bridge helped, although never got it to go away). Has great dark/gothic sounding lows but really couldn't articulate much well with it. And the pickups were powered by 9v and were just far too 'hot' for my liking. Dirty or distortion channels/pedals just sound too muddy and boomy. Spend a little more and get a better schecter..c-1 or hell raiser..if you want that gothic metal sound.

        This is an incredible guitar. I've had this guitar for over a week now and I can't stop playing it. Everything about this guitar feels top notch. The look, the feel, the tone, everything it all seems perfect for me. The picture here doesn't do this guitar justice, it looks so much more beautiful in person. I traded in my old Squier standard strat for this and am glad I did! Schecter makes one solid guitar and they now have me as a customer for life.

                  This is my second guitar, First was an Ibanez that came with a starter kit. So I don't have a lot of comparison. Can I tell the difference in the tone - yes. Is this a bit easier to play - for me yes. Not sure if it's the shape of neck or setup better. Seems to hold tune longer and the tuning knobs are definitely smoother.

                  I really like the look better, but that's probably not such a big deal (other than it was my money) because I'll very likely not play it in public. It's just for me to practice on.

                      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 Electric Guitar:

                      This Guitar plays and sounds just as beautiful as it looks. Sleek, Not to heavy, not crazy light, comfortable on the body. The neck is thinner and really allows a bit more versatility when it comes to really moving around and jamming out. About 2 weeks ago I was testing out a few guitars in order to test out a Line 6 amp I was looking to buy. When I plugged the Demon-6, I hit a few power chords and I just knew, and you know when you found a good guitar, you can feel it and I definitely felt it with this one and then ended up not buying an amp and ended up buying the Demon-6. I've read other reviews talking about fret buzz, but I didn't have that problem, may be a string issue or amp, but I never had that problem and hopefully I never occur this problem. I could go on all day on this guitar but I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone but especially to someone that has been jamming out on lower end guitars and wants something a bit more nice but also something that is also easier on the wallet. I would recommend this guitar over and over all day everyday.

                      I'm pretty new to guitar, but I never really felt at home with my old Starter Strat. I found this guitar and for the price it is extremely awesome! Highly recommend, although out of the box it had quite a bit of fret buzz, but nothing that raising the action a little bit didn't fix.

                      not much to compare it to since this is a replacement for an 8 year old affinity series squier. But this guitar has everything I love! The paint is beautiful. The fretboard is smooth, the frets are well rolled, the next is thin and the perfect width. Tuners are great and hold a tune forever. Came fully set up in the box! Intontion was set and the action was perfect! the only complaint is that it has mild fret buzz.

                          Really nice guitar. We have an Epiphone Les Paul Pro and a Strat copy, and I really enjoy playing this more I think. Seymour Duncan pickups sound great; guitar is lightweight and the slimmer neck is really fun to play. I also like the non-gloss finish on the back of the neck as it feels like it adds to the quick action of the neck. It seems to stay in tune very well, and it was set up perfectly out of the box w/no adjustments needed. Fret action was great. All around very pleased with this guitar..

                          This is great guitar and fun to play. I have owned it for 6 months now. I have had a lot of fun jamming with the guitar while playing with my family. With the pickups you will need to back down the gain on your amp. They are not full blown blackouts and tend to get muddy with too much gain. However that can be remedied quickly and you can't beat Schecter quality at any price.
                          The guitar comes from Schecter "set up to play" however my guitar has a bad buzz on the low E string on the first fret. I have made all the adjustments that Schecter recommends for this guitar to stop the buzzing but it won't go away. I went to Guitar Centerr and the one they have in stock does the same thing. The buzzing doesn't transfer through the amp but it's still annoying when playing especially in clean channels. Guitar Center says they will look at it for $50.00 but that's pretty steep when it should set up to play and none of my other guitars have any buzzing.
                          Otherwise a great guitar and it has a lot of sustain and drive!

                            This guitar is amazing. When i got a used Ibanez (not sure what model :P), it was in horrible condition. I went back and picked up this guitar and was instantly in love with it. I bought it and love the tone, the feel, and just everything about it!

                              Learning how to play. Like power metal. The first one I picked up from the store had a twisted neck, so they ordered me a new one.

                              Picked this guitar up recently, as I was a bit intimidated by Floyd Rose Trems, and being a beginner, it's been nothing but smooth. A bit strong on the fret buzz at times, but otherwise, sounds great, gets lows real good, and the neck is super fast. Action feels incredible moving from an acoustic to this, the price is just right too, hitting that sweet 300-500, "I'm gonna take this seriously" price. I have no regrets about this purchase as of yet, but I have prior experience with Schecters, and I have not been disappointed by them.

                              Definitely! Everyone should try this guitar.

                                I was looking for 24 fret guitar to back up my LesPaul and replace my retired 72 telecaster. I spent 4 hours playing everything from a $99 ibanez to $800 PRS SE. After 12 different styles, I kept coming back to this one. WOW..super smooth, punchy and cleans up well on my Line6 spider 5 practice amp. The neck on this was better and faster even than its big brother " Hell Raiser" for half the price. The intonation was way better as well. Only needed a slight set up change and it sings...can't say enough about this Demon. Gorgeous top as well...GC was cool about giving me the floor model..thanks GC.

                                It's been almost 10 years since I picked up a guitar - so since "starting over", I wanted a new start. I didn't want to spend a lot, so I stuck to a sub 600 dollar budget. The moment picked this one up to play, I KNEW this was the one. Looks gorgeous, feels great - what other say about the neck is true - it is so smooth and fast. It makes me feel like I am a better player than I am. The feel of this guitar makes you want to play more often - and that is a VERY GOOD THING if you are like me and need all the practice you can get. I've gotten much better in the few months that I've had it. I'm stuck in the 80's / 90's hair/metal era - and this guitar is PERFECT for that fun, crunchy, power-chordy goodness. I am not sure if it is because I haven't played enough different guitars in my life or not, but even playing this one while it is not plugged has a great clean sound to it and allows me to grab a quick 5 minute practice session as I am walking through the house.

                                Gothic fret inlays are bad-a55, maple veneer is bad-a55, knobs feel solid and wonderful, stays in tune WAY better than my Epiphone, crunch-a-riffic sound, string action is superb, just freakin' love it.

                                NOTE: I do have the fret buzz people are referring to in other reviews. It kind of forces me to work on my picking and finger position a bit to keep it as clean as I can, but it still rears its ugly head on occasion. If it is still there when I change strings the first time, I may address it, but as a guy who doesn't play on stage, I can live with it.

                                Feels great. Fret buzz on low e (small adjustment to bridge helped, although never got it to go away). Has great dark/gothic sounding lows but really couldn't articulate much well with it. And the pickups were powered by 9v and were just far too 'hot' for my liking. Dirty or distortion channels/pedals just sound too muddy and boomy. Spend a little more and get a better schecter..c-1 or hell raiser..if you want that gothic metal sound.
