        A 7-stringed demon that will get in your face with some serious low-end roar!

        The Schecter Damien Elite-7 electric guitar is a 7-stringed guitar with a sinister looking double-cutaway with a gorgeous quilted maple top, mahogany body and a fast 26.5" scale bolt-on maple neck topped with a 24-fret rosewood fretboard. The bridge system includes a deluxe 7-stringed Tune-O-Matic style bridge with thru-body string tail ferrules for tonal stability and sustain. The Damien Elite-7 is loaded with EMG Active 81-7 (bridge) and EMG Active 85-7 (neck) humbuckers to capture the extended tone range of the 7 string guitar. Grover tuners will hold the Schecter Damien Elite-7's tuning even under maximum shredding conditions. Appointments include stained cross inlays, multi-ply body binding, and chrome hardware.

        Case sold separately.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

          This Schecter is nice, I have the Damien Elite-7 in metallic black. Having seven strings really increases your dynamic range. I used to play strictly Ibanez for my metal madness, but while shopping for a seven string I fell for this Schecter.

          The frets seemed to be well dressed and the action is great. The neck is thin and fast. Tones are deep and tight. There is some light fret buzz but thats to be expected from huge strings and low tunings. The EMG's are like what you would expect active EMG's to be, they really bring out the natural tones of this Mahogany. Put a sweat band behind the nut to take care of the string chirp and you've got yourself a br00tal beast ready for Nekrogoblikon.

          The only things I've found that I dislike is that there is no forearm cut on the body, so it kinda gets a little uncomfortable to play while sitting. Also, the heel on the neck joint could be a little more ergonomic.

          I use this Damien Elite 7 mainly for recording insane rhythm riffs with Logic Pro, but it also sounds great plugged directly into my Blackstar.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

          I purchased as X-mas gift for my son who so far loves it. Has some getting used to but has enjoyed immensely. The whole process of ordering through to delivery went off without a hitch. I would recommend using in the future. I have also ordered other items with the same smooth order and delivery outcomes. Only thing from a 10 is overall prices. There are less expensive routes to take which come at a price of my time which seems to be less and less daily.

          awesome guitar

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

          i love this guitar. it sounds heavy, fast to play and the 7th string makes it even more fun. if you play metal and want a 7 string get this guitar
          this guitar makes heck of a sound with the emgs. i was going to switch out for blackouts but after hearig the sound i get i really dont want to loose that sound. the neck is fast, the jumbo frets make it very easy to play and so mumch fun with the 7th string
          when i got the guitar it looked just as good as the pictures and the pickups are awesome. the only thing is that i came way out of tune but after tuning it, it stays tuned.
          there are a lot of guitars that you can buy for a lot more and get the same sound and look, and those would only be 6 strings... the fact that its this price, looks incredible and sounds nice and heavy and your looking for a guitar made for metal, look no further.

          Amazing guitar

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

          I picked this guitar up yesterday after trying several other 7 string guitars. This was the absolute best one i played. I even thought it sounded better than the hellraiser c-7, but tht could have just been the way it was set up with kids messin with it and stuff. But right after playing the guitar i bought it, there was no question that i loved this guitar. if you want to get into seven string playing or you are a 7 string player and want a great guitar i advise getting this one.

          Best 7 for the money!

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

          Gonna keep this short. This guitar is awesome. Insane distortion, very playable, factory setup is great, rock solid. Only complaint is that the neck had some small bumps of some kind of finish on the back... but it rubbed right off with polish... prob just dust or something got into the finish. Other than that... flawless. This is my 3rd Schecter and i play nothing else cause no other company makes such innovative guitars for so little cash.

          Once again Schecter delivers!

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Elite-7 Electric Guitar:

          Schecter is unrivaled when it comes to mid level guitars and their quality. Their guitars are ready for the heaviest of metal you can play. The Damien 7 Elite is no exception to this fact. Grover tuners, active EMG's and a mahogany body are usually what you find on guitars costing twice as much. This is as good as it gets for a bolt on neck model 7 string.Anyone interested in playing a 7 should at the very least check this guitar out! I gave the guitar a solid 4 for features because I feel that the battery compartment should be the click to open style instead of screw open plate. I am also indifferent to the gothic cross inlay, other than those MINOR personal preferences I am more than pleased. The black is a beautiful metallic sparkle and the stock picture does not do it justice,
