The otherday I picked up a Damien 6 fr for 265 dollars. I got home to find that it needed a few adjustments because the notes on the high b and e string were dead around the 5-7 frets. I got everything adjusted and now it plays extremely well in comparison to my Ibanez s470. I really like the emgz and the bat inlays along the frets. I would like to know if any of you know how schecter sets these guitars up in the factory. What strings and what action etc. I'm using 9-46 and my action is set about 2.5mm from 12th fret on low E and and 2mm on high E. I can't go any lower on the high e without getting dead notes. I still have some minimun fret buzz around 7-9 frets on the low strings. Seems like I get fret buzz if I dont have my string hight around 3mm on low strings.
when i got my damian, everything was set up 100 percent perfectly. i didnt find any fret buzz. im pretty sure the strings on it were 10's, and the action was just about as low as it could go...
Schecter actually works on the guitars post-factory, like they give them a full setup and crown and level and dress the frets.
They use D'addario 10-52s.
