Schecter Diamond Series Damien Platinum-6 FRSchecter
This Schecter Damien Platinum-6 FR is absolutely packed with top quality hardware and features for an unbelievably affordable price. Heck, let's start with the three piece maple set neck and mahogany body. Multi piece necks offer improved stability and the set neck increases sustain. How often do you see that in a guitar under $1k? Or how about the eye popping bat inlay? How about the EMG 81 and 85 pickups, Grover tuners and Floyd Rose locking tremolo? Shall I go on? I didn't think so. Coming in at 7 lb. 12 oz., this Damien is a total player with a slim, fast oval "C" neck profile and a nice, supple playability. Tonally, this guitar has a thick, brutal, punishing tone. The sustain is also very impressive, matching that of a larger, heavier guitar. This one shows a minor amount of play wear in the form of several small ,light scratches, swirls and light marring in the matte finish. The frets show minimal wear. The fact that Schecter can cram so many high end build features and hardware into such a reasonably priced guitar is both impressive and mind boggling.
