Product Description

The Schecter Damien Platinum 7-String Electric Guitar has classic Schecter looks with the added twist of Platinum multi-ply binding and Platinum bat fingerboard inlays. These Platinum touches add a unique, eye-catching appearance without being overly flashy. Schecter loads this seven string tone monster with EMG Active 81-7/85-7 humbuckers for remarkable note definition even in the lowest registers of the 7th string.

Schecter Damien Platinum 7 Electric Guitar Features

  • Mahogany body with Ultra Access Set Neck
  • 3-piece Maple Neck with Rosewood Fingerboard
  • EMG Active 81-7/85-7 humbuckers
  • Platinum Bat inlays and Multi-ply Binding
  • 24X Jumbo frets are great for players who love to bend strings
A 3 piece Maple neck is set into the Mahogany body and features an Ultra Access contour. This combination yields remarkable stability, sustain and comfortable playability even at the highest frets. 24X Jumbo frets on the rosewood fingerboard make string bending and lead playing effortless on the Damien Platinum 7 string.

Tuners - Grover
ROTOMATICS WITH 18:1 GEAR RATIO (102-18 SERIES) The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.

Fingerboard - Rosewood
The most common fingerboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Pickups - EMG Active 81-7/85-7
Bridge: The 81-7 is a high output pickup designed especially for the 7-string lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a 7-string rock pickup, the 81-7 is the one. Recommended pairings include the classic 81-7/85-7 setup.

Neck - 3-piece Maple
Made with 3 pieces of maple for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Overall Rating
Well worth the money
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I have had it for one month but the over all feel is pretty comfy. The Matte finish looks pretty sweet but is not too flashy, and the bat inlays are a very nice touch. It is my first seven string so I can't really comment on playability cause there is a little more fret board to cover and the new string I have to learn how to play with is well.. THICK haha. It has the beefy tone I wanted, the emg's and the metal up your a$$ look. So for 600 bucks, ya can't complain.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I have only had for one month but so far the quality seems perfect. Appearance had no flaws, stays in tune and came set up to play. I play rock/metal so it fits right in as far as genres go, 7 strings, emg's, matte black.. C'mon now.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The pickups are hot, they definitely sound a little muddier than my 81, 85's on my hellraiser and the clean tones don't sound as good, which still sounds very good just not as..
How did the stain or paint job look?
Paint job is flawless, bat inlays are awesome. No complaints here.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
600 bucks is pretty fair compared to what else is out there but it is my first 7 stringer so I can't exactly say. All I know is I am very happy overall with the guitar and like I tell my wife, it's not 600 dollars, it's 3 easy payments of 200 LOL.
How was the action out of the box?
It was set up ready to play, strings were just right for me and stays in tune pretty well.
