What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
Poplar burl top Beautiful wood grain, produces bright tones
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
14" Fretboard Radius Flatter fretboard radius for faster playing
The Schecter Omen Elite takes stunning looks, high performance playability and tone, and packages it into an incredibly affordable price. A gorgeous poplar figured burl top meets a lightweight mahogany body providing a rich and complex combination of warmth, resonance and sustain.

A maple neck with rosewood fretboard, thin C neck shape, 14" radius, 25.5" scale length, and 24 extra jumbo frets is built for speed, tone, and effortless playability. Lightning fast runs, arpeggios, and hammer-ons have never been easier. Pearloid line fretboard inlays give a touch of class to this otherwise menacing machine.

The Omen Elite is loaded with a set of Schecter Diamond "Heretic" humbucker pickups which produce a balanced yet aggressive and combative tone. The center Alnico V magnet coupled with Ceramic 8 flanking magnets deliver a crushing mid-range while maintaining a tight, focused and articulate response. The Heretic pickups were designed to conjure the heaviest tones that shake the ground you stand on.

A new 5-Way (Hum/Hum) switch provides an arsenal of voicings to select through. Position 1 is bridge humbucker; position 2 is a classic single coil bridge/neck; position 3 is bridge/neck full humbucker; position 4 is neck in parallel humbucker; position 5 is neck series humbucker.

A Graphtech Black Tusq XL nut boosts tone and performance while bringing out the hidden harmonics and richness in every note.

A precise Tun-O-Matic bridge and read more Schecter tuners put the finishing touches on this undisputed pound for pound champion of guitars being offered at this price point.
Optional SGR-1C molded hardshell case sold separately.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I just ordered an elite 6 as well the fit in the neck socket is not good I could fit a good size credit card in there. The high frets were sharp and bit jagged and in need a dressing and crowning. A tool mark on the horn and in the gap of where it bolts on can't tell if it's scratched or cracked. I emailed zZounds today hoping to hear back and provide shipping back at no cost to me. Nice guitar but it has its flaws no doubt surely disappointed.Armando
Sound
I think the Heretic pickups are a nice change to most stock pickups they are hot but sound great dirty. chords ring nicely voicing is excellent for metal and rock. Cleans up well too. But pickups could be a bit more dynamic. Great guitar if metal is all you want to play.

Quality control shows on the model I purchased it isn't very good. Gapping in the pocket from neck to body shape upper frets just wasn't pleased to be honest .
