So, I've been interested in getting an Omen for a little bit given the reputation and wanting something to run Drop C. However, as I was keeping an eye on prices, I noticed that a Damien would pop up now and then for $20-30 more and after researching, I felt it would be worth my while to snag one if one without a Floyd Rose was available in decent shape and price.

Well, it happened a day or two before my tax refund dropped so I jumped on it when the money was available. So, now I have a Diamond series Damien, which appears to be made in Indonesia, but I'll have to look at the serial numbers to verify.

Just got it home and played with it a little. The Grover tuners are really nice, which make me want to down the line snag another Damien and retire my Squire on that alone.

The pickups are an improvement as well, and even without the guitar being tuned, they're much clearer.

The neck is so smooth and feels just like the Demon 7 I played with awhile back.

I need to clean it up a tad, but overall it seems in pretty good shape. $150+ shipping & tax for it.

I'm changing strings so I can better pull Drop C, but the thing doesn't look like it will need much adjustment with the swap.

New strings on (DR 10-52) and tuned up. I still need to intonate after I let them stretch out some, but so far, things seem really good. As long as my string job isn't total garbage, intonation is really all that's needed right now.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Whoever had it before had it well set up because when I did the intonation, I barely had to touch the saddles. Or the TOM bridge design lends itself that way.

I'm not sure what strings were on before, but it seemed like common practice to replace strings on used guitars anyway.
