Getting back to playing after a year away because of ... life... and buying a new rig. I seriously considered getting a bass, but 6 strings is my calling. So I was in the local shop last week and they had a Schecter Damien. Never been a fan, but I messed around a bit with it and was very impressed. MF is blowing out the sunburst model right now, and I would have already ordered it had my air conditioner not blew up and needed about $500 worth of work. It really dented my savings, but I will have it back in a few weeks and will buy a new rig then. Not a lot of experience with active pups, so would this guitar work well with something like a Peavey Classic 30? I used to have one and loved it, and I am leaning towards dropping the cash on one again. Or are active pups more suited for a different amp?

Thanks guys.

They will work fine together. The only issue I see is that the kind of person who wants a Classic 30 is usually not the kind of person who wants a Schecter Damien.

If you answer these questions here, we can recommend an amp that will meet your needs. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showpost.php?p=25873058&postcount=1

And ditto for a guitar. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showpost.php?p=28571615&postcount=1

Though if you've played one and you like it, of course you should go for it.

Yeah I know it sounds like an odd mix, but I really liked the guitar, and it is really affordable for what it offers. I feel like I would have to spend $200 to $300 more to get anything else like it. I really like a hardtail, string-thru body, and flatter radius, and it has them. As far as the amp, it is something I am familiar and comfortable with. I feel like it has a good deal of versatility.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
