played Guitar for 3 years, lessons for 6 months. have about 6 guitars now. lol.
Bought it at a pawn shop for $133.00. Always been attracted to the Schecter brand. I liked the clean and over-driven sound.
Omen6 has a nice clean sound suitable for probably anything, if you have the right amp/settings. The sound on overdrive is really sick too. the body is made really well, the action can be set really low. Nice contour on the body too.on clean channel:the first pickup setting has a nice mellow sound, but not mellow enough that it is not useful for anything. The middle setting has a nice twangy sound, almost as if could be used for folk/country, and lower hum-bucker setting has total crunchy bright tone, probably the most unusable when used on clean setting. on overdrive, it is of course, the sexiest grunge noise you can get that will make you spew in your pants.
the body can be scratched easily.high priced if buying new.
very good quality. durable. tuners are nice. overall very light-weight , so easy to play for a long time.
it is good, so buy it if you are interested - used preferably.
I have been playing the guitar for approximately little over five years, now. I began playing classical music (I still do to some degree, but not as often) but have expanded since I became more fluent with the instrument. I now play everything from Classical/Flamenco, to Funk, to Metal, to Jazz (And some wacky experimental stuff).
Bands/Artists I like in particular: Jaco Pastorius, Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, Kaki King, Bela Fleck & the flecktones/Victor Wooten.
I purchased this guitar at "Steve's Music Store" in Toronto, Ontario. I payed $550 new (CND, tax not included.. 600 something with tax I guess.)
How does it feel:
When you pick up the guitar you instantly notice the feeling of the neck: Flawless. The feeling is very comfortable and still, In my opinion, one of the cleanest necks i've ever felt. Then you feel the action on the guitar... low and perfect. I ussually have .10 or .11 strings, but this guitar makes them feel light as a feather.
How does it sound:
The pickups are fantastic! Because the body is a heavy wood (Basswood), it gives a very full and heavy sound... Very similar to a mahogany Les Paul. The sustain on this guitar is absolutely amazing, I believe it has something to do with the string through body bridge setup. With distortion this guitar also sounds great! It gives a very clean/crunchy sound and is almost perfect if you're into very fast and exciting shred guitar.
The guitar features a push/pull pot. switch. When pushed, the guitars' pickups are at normal settings (They sound as mentioned above)... When pulled, the two humbucking pickups are transformed into a single coil setting and 2 halves of the 2 pickups are disabled... This sounds absolutely awful. A strong buzzing sound is heard from the amplifier and it gives a very twangy/trebley noise... Similar to a telecaster that has been dropped a few times.
Another thing I don't like about this guitar (Which doesn't matter) is the name... Omen Extreme? It's a beautiful amber finish over a quilted maple top and they call it extreme? Schecter knows very little about marketing.
I can't say any other negative things about this guitar (Except that I had to re-solder the patch chord input due to my own stupidity.)
According to the "Schecter" website, these guitars are manufactured in South Korea and setup/constructed in California. The neck profile is a bolt on, while this is not a mark of craftsmanship, it is cost efficient and I don't really mind.
Nothing on this guitar is very complicated so it is not likely to fall apart or be subject to many repairs. I other words; It's solid.
There is no tremolo system, so that takes out a probably many guitars have.
This is an excellent guitar and is very versatile with what ever you're playing.
I found it at guitar center, I bought it cause I am going to be a vocalist, and a guitar player. I paided about $329.98
I love the pick ups, How easy it is to use. Works like a charm. I haven't have no person to me say thats a horrible guitar. The design is fit perfect for msuicans. It durible, and plus the wood color is very forgiving, If it gets a mark. Just rub on on it and its cleared!
I have nothing I don't like about this guitar.
Its very durble. The wood color is very forving, so if it gets a mark. Just rub on it, It comes right off.
Love your site, and I want to tell Schecter to keep up the good work!
I bought this guitar about a year ago from Musicians Friend. The price was around $200.00 which is a great price, because the guitar is listed for around $400.00. I'm glad I purchased this here, because I would of payed way to much for this guitar.
The guitar is great. It has a great sound and looks awesome. The guitar I got is the natural color. The guitar stays in tune very well and plays great. Schecter is a great brand the people will work with you if there is anything wrong.
It doesn't have the thing that you change from higher to lower on the top(not the volume knob, I can't remember the name of the thing.) I play lead and it makes it a tad harder to change, but other than that it's a great guitar.
The construction is great. It is very well held together piece. everything is perfect. I haven't had one problem with it yet in the one year I've had it.
This guitar is a great guitar. I would suggest buying. It's great for beginners and intermediate players.
