Excellent value

By mxtreme311

from S E Idaho

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

This was my first 5 string electric bass, I bought it to see if I would like a 5 string and it was pretty cheap. I was absolutely blown away by this instrument. It has great sound, action, and feel. My only complaint was that it wasn't a neck-thru but at this price point that is not really even a complaint. I have since moved up to a Stiletto Studio 5 but still use this monster weekly!!

Schecter Omen 5 string

By PanzerMeyer23

from Michigan

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

Schecter have really stepped their game up the last few years. The quality of instruments that they're putting out at these reasonable prices is enough to blow your mind. The Schecter Omen 5 string is a perfect example of that quality.This is probably one of the most comfortable basses I've ever played. I've tried out many Jazz and P basses, a few Ibanezs, and a few Epiphone Thunderbirds, and the Omen just blows them out of the water.Everything on the bass feels very solid, whether it's the six massive bolts holding the neck on or the monstrous bridge, everything feels very well made. The active two band EQ is very versatile, capable of producing everything from fat, round pillowy basslines to biting, twangy guitar-esque tone in the high range. The active EQ and stock Schecter active pickups sound great, and with a little tweaking can produce a variety of good bass tones. The stock pickups also do a great job of keeping the low B string from getting muddy, it rumbles the floor yet still retains it's clarity and definition.The neck is a really great combination of several neck designs, it's got enough wood for you to be able to really dig into slaps or groove licks, but it's thin enough to not feel like you're playing a baseball bat. The balance of the instrument is spot on, as well, it's neither body nor neck heavy, and sits very well with a strap.Mine came with the walnut satin finish, and the pictures don't do the finish any justice. It's such a warm, dark shade of satin red with the wood grain showing through beautifully.Overall, this is an extremely satisfying bass. Very versatile, extremely comfortable to play and light on your wallet. Schecter really know what they're doing, and the Omen 5 string

KILLER BASS

By Man of Doom

from Cal-eh-for-ni-a

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

This bass delivers everything you could ask for. It's rediculous that the price is this low. I will tell you that you should get a good amp, because the low B on this monster is super demanding.

all I could have asked for

By Wes Locke

from Cape Coral, Florida

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I started playing on a sqier strat, but I felt compelled to upgrade. I did my research and found the Omen 5 string. for the money, you couldn't ask for much more. Great tone, the flexability of two pick-ups, and very solid construction. I've beat mine up so much, and it keeps thundering. The low B string is definately one of my favorite feature, and now I wont play anything but a five string. I would definately recomend this bass to anyone looking for a very good bass on a budget.

Great Bass

By bass_player_ pete

from Upper Michigan

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I've been playing this bass for a week. I started with the C-5 and sent it back and got this and I'm extremely happy I did. I like the omen so much more. It's great playing the electronics are just as nice and its a straight forward no frills look that I love the walnut satin finish is cool. I would highly recomend this to anyony interested in a schecter. I love it though I gave the features only a 4 because it only has a 2 band eq not a 3, but I can live with that.

By OnlySchecter4Me

from Canton Ohio

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

What more can I say This Bass is AMAZING!!!!! Great tone both high and low sound sharp. I bought the Schecter Omen 5 as a gift to myself and my sound, but this thing has given me 100 times what I could have asked for. It was ready to play right off the wall, action was perfect as I stated earlier the tones are magnificent Perfect for your first bass or if you are a seasoned vet. this bass will beat you in the face with skull crushing tones. All I can say is buy one yourself cause you ain't touching mine... Peace!!!! Oh yeah one more thing (SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC)

A Good Start

By MonoLith

from Crestview, FL

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I got this bass last Christmas and I have to say I?m impressed. At such an affordable price, you can't beat the quality of the omen 5. The strings that come with it our very durable and can last a long time! The strings are also comfortable and close to the fret board so it?s pretty easy to pick up and play. The tone options are great and can add a lot of varieties to any style you choose...I only have one complaint: even with all the potions you have for tone, I can?t seem to find a great sound for slapping. All in all though, it?s a fantastic bass to start with if you're a beginner.

Definitely worth the money!

By geddyleeisgood

from san diego, CA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I bought this bass around christmas time, and i have not been disappointed in any way. I can get any sound i want from it. I can get crisp harmonics like jaco, or deep metal tones. The pickups are overall amazing. I have been playing bass for aabout 3 years, and i honestly cant find a 5 string i like to play more. The action is PERFECT,i am yet to find a single fret that has a buzz to it. I play through an Ashdown Electric Blue 180 and it cranks. The walnut satin finish is basic, but it is awesome and i've gotten plenty of compliments on it by people who know nothing about guitars or basses. Trust me, you can't go wrong with this bass. If you dont decide on this bass, i would still recommend a schecter; i've never played a bad schecter. NOTE: i recieved my bass off of ebay, and it had a slight blemish which made it about 100 dollars cheaper. I still think this bass is WELL worth the money however. It also came set up professionally by schecter, so that could be why the action on mine is perfect.
