Hey this is my first post on the forum does anyone else have the annoying ZAP advert with the *buzzing* mosquito, I just zap it so it'll shut up :p.

Anyway to my piont when i finaly come into some money (not any time soon) I'm going to buy a Shecter Damien FR & i was hoping somone owns one or has played one so they can tell be wether it's a hit or miss? Even if they can tell me a bit about the details below that would be great with me being a bit of a newb.

nope i use mozilla firefox

what music do you play? what amp do you use? aside from that the trem is most likely going to be a hit or miss. i really dont like their choice of the wood at all and just the whole guitar gives me bad vibes

eep mixed opinions...

I was planning on playing a bit more heavy stuff, at the moment i'm playing acoustic because thats all i have & as for amps i don't have one yet
#5
well yeh ummm you might wanna save more money for an amp and guitar that you can buy at the same time. also do you know how to work a floyd rose? how much will you be using it?
#6
You had me confused at the word floyd rose i know it's part of the guitar but i'm lost at what the hell it does but your right i should wait till i can buy an amp that will suit it. For now i'm just trying to see what guitars are good ect.

At the moment i play guitar every day or everyother day I've been doing that for about 4-5 months i also played a few years ago but i haven't had leson's, I just used my brothers guitars I still mess up a lot & can't play as good as i would like

Just steer clear of a Floyd for now, seeing as you don't sound much like you will use it
that is a floyd rose,
Why did Pat Metheney cross the road? He didn't, his hair got in the way

if you have no idea what a floyd rose bridge is then certainly stay away from the damien fr alright.
#9
Ahhh... but i want one

Just kidding :p yea i'll save that idea for future referance. I'll buy a cheaper more simple Schecter like:

Schecter 00 series 006 deluxe

Schecter omen series omen-6

But just because i have Floyed Rose doesn't mean i have to use it & could be a good investment for the future?
#10
No, if you won't be using it, like, all the time, you don't want one.

Try a Damien without the FR.
#11
Good point but that only saves £25 AKA $50, comes to think of it thats about the same amount as the other Schecters i was interested in.

Thanks a lot for your everyones help, much appreciated

If you like the Damian just get the standard version, without the floyd rose bridge

have a look at some of the other schecters as well. I'm going to get the

006 Extreme as a starters guitar for myself in a couple of weeks.


I hope you find your ideal guitar
