A world of Guitar Brands!
A world of Guitar Brands!

The Brand Factor!

Don't you think buying you should know about the guitar you are going to buy? Buying guitars without prior knowledge can lead to very bad impacts! At the end, you will dislike your instrument and lose the interest in that and hence give up practicing!

When you buy a guitar, make sure you buy a branded one, a guitar manufacturing company which has a proper website and is well-known and recommended by guitarists. Popular Guitar brands include Fender, Ibanez, PRS(Paul Reed Smith), Gibson, Jackson, Kramer, Schecter, Washburn, ESP, an ESP group the LTD, Dean, etc.

Here, in this hub, I have typed down about one such popular brand: Schecter!

I have written a review of the most popular guitars manufactured by the company - The Schecter Damien Platinum 6 FR, The Damien 6 FR, a comparative study of Demon 6 FR and Omen 6 FR.

Schecter Guitar Research

Schecter Guitar Research, is based in US which manufactures guitar and amplifier units. The company was founded by David Schecter in the year 1976 and originally produced only replacement parts for existing guitars from manufacturers such as Fender and Gibson.The company now produces its own line of electric guitars, bass guitars, and steel-string acoustic guitars, it offers hand-built custom instruments and a small line of guitar amplifiers as well.

There are many artists who now prefer Schecter and now their signature models are available and these have become very popular!

Well known artists include Jeff Loomis, Keith Merrow, Synyster Gates (from Avenged Sevenfold), Chris Poland etc

The Schecter Dimond Series

The Schecter Diamond Series was first brought into the market in 1998, and consists of all the non-custom, heavy produced Schecter models.The Diamond Series has been further divided into groups of guitars, which share similarities of body, pick ups and bridge.

Many artists refer the Diamond series as the high end ESP's for the poor musicians!

There are a large variety of models made available in the Schecter Diamond range, namely all "Omen", "C", "Hellraiser" and "Damien" have the same body shapes, although some have through body necks while others have bolt on necks, different finish colors, and different body woods.

In this hub, I have mentioned few of the Diamond series guitars with their specifications.
