The Schecter Demon-6 FR is a weapon designed for metal and metal alone. The active Duncan-Designed humbuckers have an enormous output with brutal crushing lows and surgically precise highs and just beg for high gain distortion and huge riffs. The Floyd Rose Special lets you get really nasty with punishing dive bombs and whammy action for out of this world sounds!
Body & Neck
Basswood is used for the body, known for its balanced, mouldable sound. It's the perfect platform for high-output humbuckers, providing a sounds that's both level and undeniably in-your-face.
The neck is Maple, complemented by a Rosewood fretboard. This adds the perfect amount of top-end clarity, with plenty of attack. The Rosewood also helps to smoothen the midrange response, helping with note clarity when it comes to chords and rhythm parts. All-in-all, the Demon-6's construction is just as suited to ripping lead playing as it is to chugging the heaviest of riffs.
Hardware & Electronics
Schecter opted for Duncan-designed pickups in this particular instrument; Active HB-105s to be precise. These super-hot pickups play a huge role in delivering the monstrous metal tones that the Schecter Demon guitars are known for. With a Basswood, Maple and Rosewood platform, you can expect the perfect mixture of clarity, bite and muscle in your sound.
Finally, a Floyd Rose trem and black-chrome hardware line-up neatly with a black satin finish. This is about as metal as it gets - can you handle it?
Here's what Schecter say about the Demon-6 FR:
