Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wake the dead with the Damien Elite 6 FR!"
Sound: The EMG's are very responsive and crisp. Clean tones are crystal. Kick on the distortion and the will take you on a wild ride. This guitar produces total sonic assault on your ears! You can play blues to new metal and everything between. This guitar fits in any and all places! Schecter hit the nail on the head with this guitar! Feature: Floyd Rose locking tremolo makes you want go dive bomb crazy and it holds its tuning very well. EMG 81/85 pickups sound amazing. The inlay crosses and paint job are stunning! Ease of Use: Extra Jumbo frets and thin neck mean crazy guitar solos! BEST PLAYING GUITAR EVER! Total comfort while playing! The action was set up perfect before I got my hands on it. I've been playing for over 18 years now and this was the easist guitar to play. Quality: This guitar is rugged, good solid weight and has a perfect paint job. The control knobs are solid too. I'm sure if I dropped this thing it would break the floor instead of the guitar. Make sure you get the case for it for travel. It will protect your investment, plus the crushed blue lining in the case just looks cool. Value: I felt like I should have paid more money for this thing. Total bang for the buck! If you pass on this guitar you are only hurting yourself and your wallet. Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed to call Schecter since I got it so it warrents a 10. The Wow Factor: I have the Crimson Red version and pictures do no justice. I get a ton of complements of the look and sound from it. This is a sexy beast and I can't put it down. I'm surprised the neighbors haven't called the cops yet. But if it didn’t sound good it wouldn’t matter what it look like. Good news is that this guitar sings all the way to the heavens! This guitar is the total package! Overall: I will be satisfied for a very long time with this guitar. This was my first Schecter and now I'm hooked. I will never buy another guitar from Gibson/Fender/ESP/Ibanez again. Schecter build quality guitars at a fair price. Total respect given to Schecter!!!!!!!!!! \m/ ^_^ \m/

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Strings you'll love at a price you'll love more!"
Sound: Until the day this guitar arrived in my life I was convinced I would hate active pickups. Not only have I become a convert to Schecter guitars, I am also a convert to these EMG actives. Bridge, both or neck only the tones are amazing. The lows are warm and mellow but don't seem to lose definition the way many humbuckers seem to. The highs from the bridge will make your ears bleed in a GOOD way. I'm fairly sure the first solo I played out of the box melted my OWN face! If you want clear sound with no loss this is the guitar to look at! Feature: The Floyd Rose special is responsive and is a snap for minor tweaks and adjustments on the fly. The locking nut keeps you in tune even through heavy tremolo action. The basic controls are just that ... basic. For players who want bells and whistles this may seem a bit spartan, but for players with a taste for simplicity that works, the controls are a beautiful thing to behold. Ease of Use: It would be impossible to make this guitar difficult to use. I've been playing nearly 30 years and have had a challenge with the 22nd through 24th frets. For some reason the Schecter Damien Elite makes those frets seem like they're just one of the gang up by the headstock. Quality: I have gone over this baby with a fine tooth comb and she hasn't got a single defect I can find. I won't do it myself, but I hazard a guess that she could bounce off the deck and still not come up broken. Solid is an understatement! Value: For the $550.00 this guitar costs, you're getting a lot of guitar. Schecter values this guitar at over $850.00 and believe me, with my experience, this guitar would be well worth $1,000.00 or maybe a bit more. I would never pass up this deal on this guitar. Manufacturer Support: I have had no need to contact Schecter support for this guitar but in my past experience they have always been A+! The Wow Factor: Just plain dead sexy. The Schecter Damien 7 FR with it's matte black finish was sweet looking and got plenty of attention. This Damien 6 Elite FR in Metallic Black doesn't just get attention, it makes it. If you want men to envy you and women to want you, get this Damien! (Ok, disclaimer: I'm sure the guitar can't actually guarantee you'll attract women, or men for that matter. But HEY it can't hurt can it?) Overall: I doubt very seriously I will ever grow tired of this guitar. In fact I have already made plans to buy at least 3 more identical models in varying colors so I can have an arsenal of Schecter Damien 6 FR's in various tunings to make my set list simpler to deal with.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
