    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 With Floyd Rose Solid Body Electric Guitar:

    Picked up this guitar because I liked the combination of the black burst and black chrome FR Special. The neck is nice and thin for those of us without 6 inch fingers and plays real nice. My first guitar with active pickups, not really sure what the sound difference is because I don't have anything to compare it to. The action is super low on this and plays well on all strings, there is some buzz on the low E if you play it hard. All in all I would highly recommend this guitar to any beginner that is looking for an easily played guitar.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 With Floyd Rose Solid Body Electric Guitar:

        I am blown away by this guitar. To be honest, I had no intentions on buying a Schecter. I really wasn't looking to buy a guitar at all. I have a Fender Stratocaster, which I really like, but I have been looking at something with a Floyd Rose. My local Guitar Center doesn't carry many "super strats", so I decided to pick this one up and try it. I liked it so much I bought it. The fit and finish are great, just as good as my Strat even. The Duncan Design pickups are suprising. I know they aren't real Blackouts, but they sound great, even clean. The Floyd Rose Special is one of the best on any guitar in this price range. It is super smooth and stable. From what I understand, they are shipped (from Indonesia) to California and set up in their shop before shipping to retailers. It plays just right. No need to pay $50 or $60 to have it set up. I would check one of these out before you buy an Ibanez, ESP, Jackson or any other shredder guitar.

            Love the Demon and Omen series. I now have 2 Demons, an Omen and a Hellraiser. This was my first Demon and I liked it so much I got another one without the Floyd Rose. These things play like a dream and have a nice thin fast playing neck (which I prefer). Great sound, incredible looks, and just an all around awesome instrument.

                Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 With Floyd Rose Solid Body Electric Guitar:

                So I am a 52 year old empty nester... I decided to fulfill a lifelong fantasy about 8 or 9 months ago - I am going to learn to play guitar. I'm somewhat of a metal head, and I love classic rock as well. Eddie Van Halen is my all time favorite player with Angus Young running a close second (and I love all the thrash metal bands from the 80's). So anyway - I started with a Squire "Strat" starter pack, and quickly learned that it was a piece of crud. So after a month, I traded it in at my local GC for this particular Schector Demon 6. I just loved the way it looked (cool and beautiful) and I had to have a whammy bar! When I got home and plugged her in.... wow. I was in love. The sounds I could make just playing around with the few chords I know - and pretending to be EVH himself hammering the strings and going crazy with the whammy bar... Now I must admit that there was some string rattling from the low E string that was a little annoying to me, so I took the guitar to my local (small) guitar shop where I take lessons and the guy did a quick little neck adjustment and BAM! No more rattle. Fast forward to 9 months later. I've purchased and traded several guitars to where I now own a Schecter Banshee Extreme and Schecter Hellraiser Solo II and a Cort Semi Hollow body. I've also bought a couple others (EVH's and a Dean) that I took back/exchanged because I was not satisfied with them. So long story short.... I love all my Schecters, and my Cort too - but this Demon 6 FR is the one I love the most and keep coming back to when I really want to rock out and just have fun pretending to be EVH or Herman Li! The sounds it makes are awesome IMO, and the darn thing just stays in tune no matter how crazy I go on it (with minimal fine knob tuning tweaks at the begging of each jam session). And, I just like the way it feels in my hands... so long story short, this guitar is sexy and fun to play with.

                  Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Demon-6 With Floyd Rose Solid Body Electric Guitar:

                  I just took delivery of it this morning, but this isn't my first experience with Schecter. The guitar arrived in perfect condition, and ready to play. After a quick minor tuning adjustment I checked the intonation, and it was right on, action was just how I like it (low), and it was ready to jam. To no surprise, this guitar was amazing to play - I love Schecter guitars, they are quickly becoming my favorite. As a non-paid guitarist, the value for the dollar is unbeatable in my opinion. The finish, sound, playability, and feel of these is amazing.

                    I just got this guitar on October 30, 2017 and it is incredible. It's a Christmas present but I still plan on playing it everyday till I officially get it. My friends are all jealous of me and the ones that have played it have fallen in love with it just like me. It's a beautiful guitar and is very easy to play, the neck is my favorite part because it's so smooth and easy to move on.
