Mahogany Body with an Arched Top
The Schecter Damien has a body constructed from high quality Mahogany, producing powerful tones that can keep up with anything. The arched top provides excellent resonance that enhances the natural tone of the body wood. The Mahogany body offers naturally rich, warm tones, with a balance of grind and bite to create tights lows and appealing highs. The wood offers the guitar excellent amounts of depth and helps provide an incredible sustain. The bass also features Schecter’s custom bass bridge, satin chrome hardware, silver/platinum binding, and a satin black finish.
Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard
The 3-piece Maple neck provides some tightness and cut to the bass’s tone, delivering an edge of sizzle to the highs and firmness to its lows. The Maple wood provides bright characteristics to the overall tone, whilst offering a snappy attack in the midrange. Adding a Rosewood fingerboard helps to fur up to the Maple’s sound, whilst contributing to its smoothness. The Rosewood/Maple combination brings warmth to the guitars tone, adding sparkle to the highs, thickness to the lows, and opens up the mids. The Damien Platinum also comes with many other features, including Grover tuners, a Graph tech nut, and platinum bat inlays on the fretboard.
Featuring a set of EMG 40HZ’s, that are based on the 35HZ but made for 5 string basses, the Damien has plenty of output to produce incredible tones. Using ceramic bar magnets with steel bars, the EMG pickups are designed the same as a humbucker to offer low noise and a high output. The pickup can produce warm tones with a smooth attack and a big mid-range response. The Schecter also features a 2-band EQ with controls over the bass and treble, allowing the bass to be shaped to best suit your playing style.
