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:

                    I'm a (pro) bass player, but like to keep my guitar chops honed. I bought it for jazz, funk, rockabilly and "fusion" styles. You heard it right: I bought this (mainly) for jazzy-ish stuff. I like the innate dark-sounding voicings of this Demon-6. I almost bought Schecter's Stiletto 5 bass, but couldn't justify adding another bass to my bass arsenal, despite the reasonable pricing, but Schecter's basses are what inspired me to try a Demon model; I'm already familiar and impressed with the Hellraiser C-1. At my local GC I went through a series of scales and modes exercises and just loved the voicing of the Demon 6, on BOTH pickups. After purchase, I handed it to a good buddy, an awesome jazz pro, to give it a whirl. He spun through a couple of Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins tunes. He handed it back to me with a single, genuinely spoken word: "Wow." Now THAT is an endorsement (since he owns some really special Gibsons and Guilds jazz boxes).

                      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.
