Schecter Guitar Research

Description

The Schecter Damien Platinum 7 left-handed 7-string electric guitar has a double-cutaway mahogany body, set 3-piece maple neck, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. It's loaded with the classic combination of an EMG-81 active humbucker in the bridge position and an EMG-85 active humbucker in the neck position for all the heavy rock tones you need. Grover tuning machines with a TonePros tune-o-matic bridge provide tuning stability and tonal sustain. The electric guitar's appointments include bat inlays, multi-ply fretboard and body binding, and satin chrome hardware.

Grover tuners
Rotomatics with 18:1 gear ratio (102-18 series) The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.

Rosewood fingerboard
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

EMG Active 81-7/85-7 pickups
Bridge: The 81-7 is a high-output pickup designed especially for the 7-string lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high-volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor-sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a 7-string rock pickup, the 81-7 is the one. Recommended pairings include the classic 81-7/85-7 setup.

3-Piece Maple Neck
Made with three pieces of maple for extra stability. Three-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the three-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.
