      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Solo Elite Electric Guitar:

      I bought mine used, in mint condition, and it was the best deal on a guitar I have ever gotten. It looks great, plays great, I can't think of anything negative to say about this axe. It's the first Schecter I have owned and I am fully impressed. Get one!

        Good guitar. Tuned in drop b with .12-.54 strings. Emgs have unique sound very powerful not as musical as a super distortion or Duncan distortion. Like that I don't have to upgrade any hardware. Has good grover tuners, graphtech nut and tone pros bridge. Fun to play.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Solo Elite Electric Guitar:

          Schecter really outdid themselves when they made the Damien Elite Solo 6. I've had this guitar for a little over a year and I am not at all disappointed. Many of my influences use Schecter, so why would I use anything else?

            Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Solo Elite Electric Guitar:

            I couldn't be happier with this purchase. It arrived a day ahead of schedule, had several layers of packaging to prevent damage, and was almost perfectly in tune when I plugged it in. This guitar is a must have; the EMGs have great tone (clean or distorted), it looks stunning, and it is overall a high quality guitar at a great value.

              Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Solo Elite Electric Guitar:

              Ready to play right out of the box, this thing was about 98% in tune upon arrival. I've tuned this guitar once since I've opened it! The Grover tuners and TuneOmatic bridge sustain the tuning very well. This is my second electric and I love it. I've been playing a lot of acoustic lately and wanted to learn some heavier, faster modern rock songs.. The tone and ease of play of this guitar is everything I expected from Schecter, definitely not in such an affordable guitar. You won't find a nicer guitar than this for the money.

              I worried about the EMG Pickups being to heavy to play classic rock songs like simple man but you can adjust the knobs down for a really great clean sound. This guitar is mean and I play a lot rock songs without distortion, great for lead and rhythm. The pickups on this thing cost about half of what the guitar is worth and plus its an amazing looking instrument in person, the pictures don't quite capture the true beauty of this thing.

              Highly recommended!!

                This axe is amazing! The tone coming out of the EMG active pickups is ridiculous! This is my first Schecter product, but i definately see myself making another purchase, down the road!

                Review of Damien Solo Elite Electric Guitar

                By Daniel Giglio

                from australia

                Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Damien Solo Elite Electric Guitar:

                Overall, this guitar is a great guitar. Its my second would suggest this to people with a lower budget and if you ready to take a step up with your guitar playing and get a new guitar instead of your very first guitar eg. an old no name brand.
                The features are fantastic wicked inlays love the paint job string through body great design and the EMGs are great but the best is the 18:1 ratio Grover tuners which are fantastic I use .68-.11 gauge strings tune it maybe 1-2 time per week and I thrash it. My old guitar I was tuning every minute and my brothers Gibson has to be tuned at least everyday.
                Best quality for price for sure EMGs in Australia cost as much as I bought the guitar for! I didn't get any scratches or anything on the guitar was fantastic when it arrived.
                I paid a great price for this guitar, was the best offer. I'll give the rating 20/10

                I love this guitar, the clean tone is amazing! the active pickup are a steal on this guitar, its cheap and a great guitar! I own two of these and my other guitarist has the c style body one, the emgs help cut thru everything for my solos and just made heavy riffs heavier. If you are looking for a great guitar for a deal this is it, most people pay way more for less of a great sounding guitar

                I bought this guitar from here and shipped it to australia. i got it and it was fantastic great sound great neck work and everything. with most guitars that come out of the factory you need to like fit it your playing and fix few things up but this was perfect. except the volume knob wasnt on right and the switch is broken.

                Really fantastic guitar for the price. The neck plays smooth and the action is great. If you like active pickups, 81s and 85 are a really good pair. They guitar is obviously good for metal, but you can play just about anything, I play a lot of blues and anything rock with it. Fell in love with it from the first time I tried it out.
