Schecter Omen Electric Guitar, 8-String

Featuring a basswood body and a 24-fret bolt-on maple neck, the Schecter Omen 8 8-String Electric Guitar is masterwork of looks and tone. With its rosewood fingerboard and updated Pearloid Semi-Goth inlays, the 2012 Schecter Omen 8 8-string electric guitar offers Schecter tuners and their CTM8 bridge for a stability and sustain filled instrument.

Schecter Diamond Plus Pickups

Over wound coils with a ceramic magnet give this aggressive high output pickup the push that will send your Amp over the edge. Made for crunchy rhythms and blistering leads. Perfect for drop tunings. This pickup will cut through the mix with ease. The pickups feature a rockin' single coil tone when push-pull knob is pulled up.

Rosewood Fingerboard

The most common fretboard, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Tuners

These high quality tuners feature a classic design 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 10mm diameter peg hole.

Case: To protect and transport your guitar, Schecter recommends the optional SGR1C Style Electric Guitar Case (#SCE SGR1C).

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Schecter products.

Overall: Guitar is much nicer than I expected for the price. I really like the updated inlays and I believe the binding is also an update from last year. Looks really nice. Fret ends are nice and smooth and the neck is also nice and smooth, feels really good in your hands. Eight strings are not difficult to get used to with this guitar. I was really surprised overall especially with the pick ups which everyone says are terrible but I've found to be actually not that bad. I tried out a few other brands, such as LTD, and I really wasn't impressed at all. Their guitars for a comparable price, to me, was not a comparable quality. You will be really happy with this guitar if you decide to purchase it. It has great features for the price including a graph tech nut. I had a Schecter about 10 years ago that was a cheaper model and the quality has vastly improved. Can't say enough good things about it, buy one, you'll love it!

Sound: The pickups are not the best, but they are certainly adequate for a mere $400. Some people complain about the pickups making the low strings sound muddy, but this is false. The problem is that the strings it comes with are just too thin for low F# or whatever you tune to. Just put on a really heavy single string! D'Addario sells singles up to 80, and Kalium/Circle K makes up to 106. For $5, I had my local tech widen the machine head hole slightly to fit my low string. Even through my tiny Peavey Vypyr 15, the low string sounds quite good if it's thick enough. Feature: I already talked about the pickups and stock strings. The neck and body could both be thinner to reduce weight and increase ease of playing, but they're fine as is. The string spacing is perfect. The nut and bridge are both great and, together with the "string-thru" body, they let the strings resonate very well. The tuners could be better, but are adequate for the first 7 strings. They aren't quite strong enough for the 8th string if you pick hard. The short scale length (26.5") makes it much more playable than the 28"-ers. Ease of Use: This guitar is nice and simple to use, other than two obvious exceptions: (1) It takes a little longer to tune 8 strings than 6 or 7. (2) Don't buy it for your 10-year-old, as the neck is too thick for very small hands. Quality: The wood, construction, and finish are all in perfect condition after a year and a half of me banging it around like the klutz I am. I've never even had the guitar "set up," and there's almost no buzzing on the fretboard. A few months ago I started having a problem with the switch which sometimes cuts off the sound from the bridge pickup by mistake. I'll get the switch replaced at some point, but it really hasn't been a big deal. Value: 110% worth it. Manufacturer Support: I've contacted Schecter plenty of times, most recently about the switch problem, and they are always pretty quick to reply and very helpful in their responses. They helped me figure out that it was in fact the switch that was causing it, and not the pickup. The Wow Factor: The picture doesn't remotely do the guitar justice. When I bought it, I assumed it would just look like mud. When I opened it up, my mouth dropped. It's a BEAUTIFUL dark reddish brown stain with a very stylish but not overly prominent wood grain. The shaped top is smooth and feels fancy. People are always surprised that it's only $400. Overall: Schecter has a winner here. They should come out with some more improved updates on this design, instead of all the more-expensive 28" scale length metal-monsters they're putting out now.
