First of all the one I received was the new model and looks a little different with "dagger" inlays. It looks fantastic. About the bass itself, the finish and quality is superb. The tone is excellent and the pickups allow for a wide range of sounds from jazz to rock to hip hop. The body is pretty light and comfortable, you can play this for a gig and not have any problems. The neck is slim and fast. The action was PERFECT straight from the factory. No other guitar or bass I have ever purchased has been set up so perfect without setting it up myself. I bought this bass thinking it would be cool to practice and jam with, but I will gig with it along with my Fender American J Bass. I will look to Schecter products in the future as well, this is my first time buying anything from them, and I am 100% satisfied.

I bought one a while back, and I loved it. Then it quit working. I sent it back and got a new one, and a couple weeks later, it cut out again. I'm never going to buy a Schecter again. When it did work, it was an amazing bass, but I don't trust them now.

Awesome value for the entry level

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

Overall with the economy being what it is. If you are in the market for a bass that has great features for a low price look no further, you have found what you are looking for.
It plays great, sounds great through several different amps(GK, Hartke, Fender, and even a Line 6 POD X3).
From the wood to the finish, right down to the electronics, This is one solid bass that will last a lifetime. Wether you play Standard tuning or Drop D this thing packs a lot of punch, notes are reproduced clear and clean. Playing is effortless due to the smaller neck radius and profile.
I highly recommend this to any beginner or seasoned pro.
Try one for yourself and you won't be disappointed.
Active EQ is superb. The range of tone you can get is priceless. Playing Bass for less than one year and loving every minute of it. Got this Bass to replace a Squire J-bass that I started on. small neck contour allows even small hands to play effortless. The action is that of a much higher priced instrument. It has handled weather extremes very well(from cold dry days -5 last winter to sweltering hot days 102 with 70% humidity) and not lost an ounce of playability.

The only thing I would have liked is a battery door that you do not have to unscrew, not that it is an issue, just would have made changing a battery a bit quicker.

Remember to unplug the guitar cable when not playing to conserve battery life, it is active pick-up after all.
Quality is right up there with other higher end basses. The finish is tough. I have not been gentle with handling as much as I should. Every component is strong and reliable. Could not ask for anything more for the price.

Solid construction, smooth finish and lines. This bass is almost a work of art. The tuning machines don't feel cheesy like some of the other basses in this price range. The bridge is very well constructed also.
The back of the neck has what appears to be a satin finish. Now this may not be a big deal to most, but I found that playability better with a satin finish than a gloss one. Left hand moves faster with less effort than on a gloss finish.
Schecter has done what their name implies. They researched what would make a great value and not be a cheap feeling or sounding instrument. This is not your run of the mill cheap bass. It has the most quality for your hard earned dollar, making it a very exceptional value. This is my mainstay bass if it were to fail due to normal use, I would have to rely on the back up that is loaned to me from a band mate. I don't thankfully have to worry about that being an issue. Would definitely buy another in the future.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

    Been playing this particular bass for about 3 years. Over the years I've played a variety of basses and this one performs right up there with mid ranged Gibson and Fender basses. I'm not really sure why the price isn't higher but I'm not complaining. I play a minimum of 4 hours a week and usually only change the battery every 4 or 5 months (the only time it actually "died" on me was when I accidently left it plugged into the amp cord for several days. To be safe, always carry a new battery and/or change it before a gig. This guitar is built like a tank and stays in tune better than most.

    ASTONISHING

    By Thatoneguy-B.FY5

    from Salt Lake City, UT

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

    This is by far the best bass that i have played in its price range. I have had other bassist prefer this bass over theirs which cost them a lot more. This bass has more bottom end than you will ever need. This bass has a very playable neck, and the bass as a whole is very sturdy. You can not go wrong here.

    Big Sound, Small price!!!!!!!!!!!

    By CJ SHUTT

    from KCMO

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

    This bass is killer, it has all the punch and power you will ever need. The active EQ is neat to, but you have to be sure to turn it off after you are done playing, or it will eat your battery up. Because it's an active EQ, turn the EQ nobs to the left?towards the headstock. I paired my omen up with the GK MB115, the tone is amazing!!! The punch i get is ridiculous, i never thought i'd be able to gig with the MB115, but now i'm pretty sure i'd be just fine. Let me once again say how good and LOUD this bass is. It's great for your runs, and a good value for whaty your getting. This is a bass you could start with and never outgrow. This is one of the reasons why i will never buy another bass unless it's a Schecter. Love it!!!!

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

    First, I am a new addition to the Bass Family (was heavy CG prior to this) and have the Omen and a Genz-Benz Combo amp for it. To make it short and sweet, great action and sound... Highvalue for the money and a dream to play. One thing to remember with active pickups is that the battery drains even when disconnected. Remember to turn the volume knob folly CCW (Toward the Head/to the left) or you may find the battery to be DEAD after about two weeks. Am thinking of one of the other models o0f schecter basses for any follow on. I consider them an outstanding bang for the buck!!! BZ Schecter,,,

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

      My first Schecter guitar purchase was kind of an accident (a price too good to pass up). This bass purchase was on purpose. I am now a Schecter believer for excellent quality at a very affordable price. A solid and good sounding bass for the money. I play it through a Fender Rumble 30 and use it for Rocksmith. I am a novice and have lost most of my hearing but still have a lot of fun playing in my dreams.

        This bass is excellent for anyone who is a beginner to intermediate player. Great sound, feels great, plays even better. Highly recommend this bass to anyone who wants a bass but is tight on cash, you can?t go wrong here. Just don?t forget to unplug it when you're not using it so it doesn?t kill the battery, other than that rock on!

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        This bass is a steal for it's price. 2 band active EQ is outstanding. Finding your dream tone will be a snap! I use a Tech 21 sansamp DI with a Behringer BX1200. That's all I need!! Only thing I don't like is that the body digs into my forearm when I'm fingering because the body is a little chunky. It should be cut away slightly in that area. Sustain is great, tone is too. I make it a point to play it every day.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        I was in need of a step up in the bass department. I was looking for something with active EQ at a low price. This bass fit that description perfectly. The only problem I have with it is that the E-string just never sounds bright at all. I'm going to try several different types of strings to see if I can find a good sound.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        I've play a little guitar but I prefer bass, the neck on this thing is by far the most comfotable I've ever delt with, the construstion is also extreamly sturdy, one thig I love about this bass has to be the passive pickups, the wounderfull thing about passive pickups is you can bend youe tone just about anyway you want it, I can go from a snarl that sounds like it wants to come through the amp and rip your head off to a nice flat pop, over all I love this thing, only proble is I've had some issues with the tuneing heads, I just had the head for the low-e go out so I'm currently haveing it repairedbut like I said I love this thing and it holds up fairly well

        By harrumph

        from Iowa

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        The bass is great, aside from when I forget to unplug it and the battery goes dead. I used it for 2 and a half years with no problem, then the treble tone knob started shorting out on me, so I had to get a little rambunctious with it and try to beat it back into playing for me during a couple shows. Probably just from playing it too hard. Sturdy, though... got run over once when in a softcase and it lives to tell the tale with no problems.

        I bought this schecter a couple of weeks ago, and I'm fairly pleased with what this baby can do. It sounds good on my 30 watt drive combo amp, but the only problem is you have to replace the battery for the bass every once in awhile. Other than that it's a pretty solid bass.

        This bass is great for the price, however changing the battery for the active eq became a hassle for me, and it would always cut off when i needed it the most. the bass is also a little on the heavy side, but other than that it is great, and has some nice punch to it.
