    Dean RC7X (used)



    It wasn't Bad, but they had rusting strings on it. The neck I was expecting to to be super fucking thin like they kept saying it was. But the neck didn't feel that different then the one on my H-207. It did feel very wide though.

    And this:



    Damien Platinum 8.

    This guitar surprised the shit out of me. It the neck wasn't fat like you'd think, (Or I'm just used to bigger necks now that i got the Matt Heafy LP7 ) The frets seemed to all be good no buzzing on any of the strings. The Low F# sounds really good with the 28" scale, Some douche bag had it tuned done to like Eb or some shit before I played it though

    I personally thought the Damien played and felt better then the Rusty Cooley sig.

    Also, I know the pics are shit It was my phones camera and I just did a quick snap in a darkish corner of the store.

    The damien line is definitely solid. I just seriously can't stand that satin finish hardware they put on them and the inlays but whatever

    I like the Inlays, always have, Probably always will The only other damien's I've played were the Bolt on Basswood ones and ONE of the Elite 7s I was seriously considering trying to get that Damien 8 string though.

    The store also had a Hellrasier C-8FR used for $599. didn't get a chance to play that one.
