That’s a weird one. The guitar is a Solo-6 model. EMG pups and Grover tuners mean it should be in the upper end of Schecter’s mid-range imports, assuming they’re stock. I don’t think they put the bat inlays on any of the cheap guitars. So unless someone has upgraded the hell out a cheap model this is probably a steal at $100.

Solo 6 Damien, judging by the bat inlays. Still a good deal at $100.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Welp I was already buying a Japanese Jackson DKMG for $200, why not go ahead and get another deal?
#5
I think its a 2010 Damien Solo. EMG HZ'S, bolt on neck, Grover Tuners, Bat inlays. I'd go for it, that's just me though.

As long as you have the money! If you hate it just flip it for $200.

There's a Schecter on Craigslist that I can't find any information on. Does anyone know what this is/should I throw a little bit of money at it?

Its a great deal...well worth a hundred bucks!

I bet I can get it for $90 or something, I like to spend as little money as possible ya know? Especially when the owner already prices it so low. I got an Epi Thunderbird, regular $300 one, with a case for $75 in perfect condition. And people say buying used is bad

Great deal. Pretty sure retail was around $400-$500. I know the "Damien Elite" series ran $499 and it had real EMGs and those things screamed so I'm assuming that sound be all this thing could use.

I actually like the pickups, I had an LTD KH-502 with them and they weren't bad at all.

Probably. Less expensive models have Duncan Designed pickups and generic tuners.

I have no idea how it was in the previous years, but as far as I know, Damiens usually had regular EMGs (81/85 mostly). The Blackjack series uses Seymour Duncans of all sorts, and the Demon has Duncan Designed actives.

Back several years ago, when this particular guitar is from, the Damien series had EMGhzs, the bat inlays, and bolt on necks. Then they split into the Damien Elite and Damien Platinum series. Both have the 81/85 set, while the elite is still bolt on neck, with cross inlays, and the platinum is set neck, with the bat inlays.

I don't think its a Damien as I just got one. That one is mat black and the little truss rod cover only looks to have 1 word on it. Mine has Damian Solo Elite.
I think its one of their lower end solo-6 maybe just a diamond or maybe a deluxe model?

It most likely just says Damien or Solo 6. Yours is a "Damien Elite" in the solo shape if your stock truss rod cover says that. It also has Abalone Crosses on it right?

there's been several different versions of the Damien over the years. And the Damien Elite series just got a slight redesign last year, so if you just bought one, it may be a very new model. One thing that has stayed consistent though, is that they have never put the bat inlays on anything that didn't have "Damien" in the name, one way or another.

That's most definitely a Damien, likely from like 2004 or earlier. 2009 was when they split into the Damien Elite and Damien Platinum lines (along with the Damien Special, for a little bit), but they had stopped making the original Damien in the Solo 6 shape years before that.
