My friend has the non FR Damien, and so I can say that the pups will probably do you fine. Can't speak to the reliability of the FR, though.

But, you do have a HSS Strat, you can probably get away with that.

I own a damien without the FR. It's pretty good for the price.. i got mine for 315 new, but then they raised the price 2 weeks after i bought it :P. I got pretty lucky haha. But about the guitar, it does everything pretty good. Mine came with a crappy setup though, so be warned :P. I'm a Schecter fanboy, but i would suggest checking out other brands in the same price range.

Ive never played the Damien FR, but my Gryphon non FR stays in tune like no guitar i have ever seen before. Also, my Synyster Custom which has a FR stays in tune very well. It seems to be a Schecter trait, at least from what i have seeen that they stay in tune very well.

No thanks.

The reason I'm looking at the Schecter is that it seems to be the best for the price range.

Some of the other guitar's in this price range have cheap trem's and pickups. But the Schecter has an FR and the EMG's which are about $80 a piece.

I think I might get this sometime soon. The Strat is a pain in the ass.

Considering you probably can't name all of the notes on the fifth frets and below, I'd worry about those before worrying about an extra three.

The trems are licensed. Every schecter I've seen or played says licensed. Why would made in china guitars have Original Floyd's on them? They just say it online. The EMG's aren't even original, they're mock offs.

Why do you think they're so "cheap".

The trems on the Synyster custom are original Floyd Roses. I own one so i would know. Also Schecters are crafted in KOREA not china and are assembled and set up in AMERICA so get your facts straight before you try to make fun of something

Its a fine guitar, grab it if you like it. You can always swap the pickups and trem later if they bother you.

If you want a REALLY nice Schecter get the Synyster Custom, it has a real Floyd Rose, Custom Duncan Invader pickups, and its neck thru with a Mohagany body and neck with an ebony fingerboard. If i didnt get that, i was going to get the C-1 blackjack, but i went with the Synyster out of eye appeal and also because i like A7X.

I have owned a schecter Damien FR for over two years and i play metal of all kinds.
i think its one of the best guitars in its pricerange i have played.
its been my most reliable guitar (contrasting my schecter gryphon) and you really cant go wrong with it.
