Schecter 2012 Omen 7 Electric Guitar (7-String)

Don't wait for an omen to tell you that you need this 7 string guitar. It features a basswood body, 2 Diamond humbucker pickups and a Walnut Satin finish.
The Schecter 2012 Omen 7 7-String Electric Guitar is loaded with quality features, starting with classic design tuners in a lubricated and sealed housing to protect gears for a lifetime of maintenance free playability. Details include a 15:1 gear ratio for smooth and precise tuning, removable knobs, threaded hex peghead bushing, and a 10 millimeter diameter peg hole. Another popular design feature is the Omen 7 Rosewood fingerboard. Naturally oily, the rosewood works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact.

The 2012 Omen 7 includes Schecter Diamond Plus pickups perfect for drop tunings and made for crunchy rhythms and blistering leads. Over wound coils with a Ceramic Magnet give this aggressive high output pickup the push that will send your amp over the edge. The Omen 7 was also designed with classic design Tune-O-Matic bridge with a Schecter 'String Thru' body tail for added string tension, sustain and clarity. To top it off is the Omen 7's maple neck that transfers a bright tone to the body which complements the warm tones of a mahogany body.

"Great Guitar!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I expect to own this guitar forever. I really am enjoying this guitar.
Sound
The sound is decent. It's not top knotch. The pickups get a little bit muddy. I have since changed the pickups to blackouts and what a difference that made! I would highly suggest doing that.
Features
My only complaint is I wish it had two volume controls.
Ease of Use
Action came surprisingly low. The intonation was slightly off but only on a few strings. The guitar came with what seemed like super lights. Even in standard tuning the strings felt sloppy and loose.
Quality
I was extremely surprised by the quality of this guitar. The neck finish and headstock look great. I purchased the walnut satin and thought the headstock was a gloss finish but it is matte which I think looks great.
Value
This guitar is by far worth the money. It has great build quality and plays very well.
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to use them so far.
The Wow Factor
Guitar looks really good. I like that it's not black.
