Schecter’s Damien Platinum-9 is a well-balanced guitar from aggressive crunchy sounds to rich, clean tones, perfect for the modern day player. The body’s arched top contour provides a great resonance, enhancing the natural tones of the body wood. The Mahogany body offers naturally warm tones, with a touch of bite for creating tights lows and appealing highs.
Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard
The 3-piece Maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard has been designed with a thin “C” shape for a smooth, fast play, and features carbon fiber reinforcement rods for extra strength. The Maple/Rosewood combination produces warm, soft tones with sparkling highs and thick lows. It also comes with many other features including Grover tuners and platinum bat inlays on the fingerboard.
The guitar features a set of EMG 909 humbuckers at. both the bridge and neck. Based on the original 707 humbuckers, the EMG 909’s produce rich, full bodied tones and a great organic sound. The 909 EMG humbuckers deliver incredible tones, presence, and dynamics that an 9 string guitar requires. Featuring alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils, the humbuckers eliminates muddy bottom strings whilst offering a tight, responsive sound. The EMG articulates every note the strings may produce, providing an incredibly well-balanced tone with an excellent upper register.
