"GREAT guitar! zZounds are heroes!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Before I get into the guitar let me just say that zZounds are amazing people for upgrading my already free shipping to overnight delivery at NO EXTRA COST! You guys rule!!! Schecter makes a great product and this model is no exception. The Schecter Damien Platinum 8 has a crisp, unique tone and great playability due to the jumbo frets, fast, thin neck and of course the 28" scale. The looks are incredible and clean and I couldn't be happier with this guitar. For the price, this guitar sounds amazing and again, I can't stress enough how awesome the service from these guys is!!!
