Set-neck construction with excellent playability

Accordingly, the Ultra Access Heel guarantees unhindered access to the highest frets at the transition from the mahogany body to the three-piece maple neck , whereas the extremely slim "Thin C" profile fits comfortably in the hand and allows anything to be played with ease.
EMG pickups for powerful rock and metal sounds
For the proper sound, the Schecter Damien Platinum-6 Satin Black is equipped with active EMG pickups , which are not for nothing considered the reference for particularly brute sounds in rock and metal circles. Accordingly, an EMG 81 humbucker is used at the bridge to provide scorching metal sounds whose sharply focused mids and highs ensure clean definition and high assertiveness even in the lowest drop tunings. At the neck , on the other hand, the EMG 85 impresses with a warm sound that lets solos sing with endless sustain and impresses in the clean channel with a transparent harmonic presentation. The pickups are managed via the familiar 3-way circuit and global volume and tone controls .
Tune-O-Matic bridge and Grover tuners
