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.

Picked up Wednesday, worked, sounded great really stoked to get my first real guitar as an adult. Really excited about continuing learning on it - now with all the online info rather than just the music books I originally learned on many years ago.

Got home from work late the next day - plugged it in - and nothing.... Tried everything I knew. Reset battery, fiddled with cord. (I'm listening thru an iRig2 Iphone combo). Nothing... I plugged in my son's starter kit Ibanez - it worked with same settings! So I guess I'm going to have to take to store for service. Really dissappointed!!!!

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 Electric Guitar:

Really impressed. Let's start for the money, you won't find a better guitar n if you could find one used even better. Nice attention to detail, schecter has to be one of the top guitar commercial guitar makers in the world. I tried lots of different brand all play well, but lack the feel of a good instrument. They guitars feel like they have been played, necks, fretts are well polished. For this price it's a no brainer. The pickups are very different to passive ones, they have a great grain and sustain. The guitar is well balanced n great to play on. Hope this helped, by the was I search a while played about 25 different guitars, and this one out played alot.

    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.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 Electric Guitar:

    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.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 Electric Guitar:

    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.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 Electric Guitar:

        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..

          I got this when I was looking for a new guitar because I was taking classes again. Originally I was looking at other Schecter models but this one had the sound I was looking for. I had the bridge pickup switched out for a Invader Seymour Duncan and it sounds fantastic. I would definitely recommend this guitar.

              Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 Electric 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 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.
