Overall, this guitar is a must-have if you're just getting the hang of playing. The pricing, the feel, and the overall comfortability, combined with the unique sound you get when you plug it in makes this guitar worth every penny. Even though I dropped this guitar for a Schecter Blackjack ATX C-7, I still like to pick up and play this demon.
This guitar suited me very well for an intermediate guitar. I did not know about passive pickups and active pickups back then, so i just picked this guitar up because of the crunch i got out of it. The EMG Hz's are exclusive to Schecter's Damien series, I believe, so this is a unique sound, especially when I mixed it up with my Pod. The FR was amazing, and I learned how to set one up from this guitar, even though it's a licensed. The neck feels great, but it's not much of a shredder neck. the 24-Jumbo frets make this guitar squeal with awesomeness.
the feel of this guitar in my hands is amazing. The rosewood fretboard feels natural when playing. The basswood body with the black satin finish made this guitar heavy, but comfortable. the pickups selector sort of broke on me a while later, but it's easily fixable. Overall, this guitar is great for showing off AND melting faces.
I bought this guitar at a great price, not a bad deal. I saw many Ibanez guitars and Jacksons around the same price, but none of them felt as complete as this guitar. This guitar fulfilled many of my musical needs, and I will never sell this badboy.

I've had this guitar for a year now, and I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed in its performance thus far. Granted, it does sound very good playing distorted chords, but the EMGs just don't pick up single notes like they should. It also severely lacks tone distorted or clean. Basically, if you're playing anything other than death metal, this guitar is almost useless, which is potentially problematic for someone who plays many different styles. The Floyd Rose bridge might be the worst part about this guitar. They are the biggest pain when changing strings or switching between tunings. Yeah, they never go out of tune, but that really isn't too big of a problem with most good guitars anyway. If you REALLY need THIS guitar, for some reason (it looks cool isn't a good enough reason) Go with either the Damien 6 or 7, because the Floyd Rose really isn't worth the time you'll need to put into it. Oh and it's also pretty bulky and heavier than a show guitar should be. I've played a few other schecters and got really jealous about how much better they play.

Damien-6 FR

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

This is an amazing guitar. I played one today, and I sat there in the store for 2 hours playing it. The picups are EMG HZ's, and they are fantastic. The neck isnt insane thin but it isnt to thick either. The inlays are pretty cool. You can't go wrong with this guitar. Its the best guitar at its price. Better than any ibanez or BC Rich or fender or jackson ive ever played. Its absolutly the bang for the buck. This thing is perfect for Heavy Metal. When i get the money, i will deffinetly buy this guitar. I have found nothing wrong with it. I reccomend this for anyone who is into heavy metal and who loves to shred.

EPIC BEAST

By stillwindrhythm

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. I bought it on Memorial Day weekend about 3 years ago, and chose it over a Gibson Les Paul Goldtop and a BC Rich Warbeast (The good one). At first, I had a hard time choosing. I was originally leaning towards the Goldtop because it was really good looking, but the minute I picked up the Schecter I knew what guitar would be leaving with. The thing feels great! Just make sure you get it professionally set-up and checked when you buy it, so you can avoid the few problems I had. All of my problems were input jack/electronics related. The input jack is CRAP on some of them. Unfortunately, I got one of those crappy ones. It was loose and cause the sound to crackle. I ignored it, wanting to save money, but it ended up causing damage to the wiring, which makes my pickups WEAK. If I were you, Id replaced the stock Hzs with some Duncan Invaders. Other then that, one of the most amazing guitars Ive ever played. Highly suggested!!!

Beware

By The Seventh Son

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

All in all, this is a great guitar. The EMGs are great, and the Floyd Rose sounds beautiful. The guitar sounds great on any pickup combination. Also, the finish is beautiful, along with the high quality pearl Bat inlays. For any metalhead, this guitar is perfect, but BEWARE!If you are a begining guitarist by any means, dont buy this guitar! Because it has a Floyd Rose double locking system, the thing is a nightmare to tune and string. If you break any strings, it's possible that the whole spring system may need to be reconfigured which can cost anywhere from 30-40 dollars everytime you need to restring it. I highly recomend that you learn to string a floyd rose before you buy this guitar, or get the version without the floyd rose or one of the other diamond series like the Hellraiser or Omen.However, if you know all of this, aside from the pain in the arse maintenance this guitar absolutely wails!

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is particularly good for rock, and as some others have said, it's not nessacarily the best for clean tones, but in my case has handled it well. It's a heavy guitar but does not feel uncomfortable to play.

    Terrible

    By The Seventh Son

    from KY

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

    Having had it for 5 months now, I can easily tell you that this guitar is terrible. Not so much Schecter possibly as Floyd Rose. After only 30 minutes of playing this guitar, with minimal to no palm muting and little use of the Floyd Rose the whole guitar will be AT LEAST half a step out of tune, when one of the advantages of Floyd Rose is supposed to be that it will stay in tune for weeks without fine tuning. I even took it into The Music House and let several people take a look at it and they only concluded that it was set up correctly, and couldn't figure out the problem. DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF CRAP, get something without a Floyd Rose.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien 6 FR Electric Guitar:

    This guitar has great tone along with a fast neck. The action is a little high for my liking but the licensed floyd rose totally makes up for it by keeping it in tune for a long time. If you don't know how to string a floyd rose then learn before you get this, otherwise it really is easy if you know how. A great guitar that I would recommend for any style musician!
