OVERVIEW

The Omen-5 electric bass guitar is the perfect bass for beginners to intermediate players. Quality woods and great sounding electronics give this bad boy a fully-loaded arsenal for the sonic onslaught that awaits.

Rosewood is naturally oily and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact, which is why it is used on the Omen-5 fingerboard. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

The Omen-5 has smooth playable maple neck. Maple has a uniform grain, it's strong and stable, and it has less reaction from environmental changes than other hardwoods. Its tone is highly reflective, and focuses more energy onto the body wood. Maple transfers a bright tone to the body that complements the warm tones of a mahogany body.

The Omen-5 comes well-equipped with Schecter diamond plus pickups. Over wound coils with a ceramic magnet give these aggressive high output pickups the push that will send your amp over the edge. Made for crunchy rhythms and blistering leads, they're also perfect for drop tunings. This pickup will cut through the mix with ease. You'll get a sparkling single coil tone when the push-pull knob is pulled up.

The Omen-5 comes with high quality tuners featuring 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 sold separately.

Smooth playability with sinister sound at an affordable price.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-5 Electric Bass Guitar:

    Fantastic craftsmanship- the neck is solid and finished very well, fretboard is perfect, inlays are sick, and it sounds great, the pickups are equal to EMG in my opinion so will leave them in!! Came set up well with few real adjustments necessary......I would put it up there with instruments costing in the thousands!!

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-5 Electric Bass Guitar:

    this bass is pretty sweet. ive played many different brands (fender, ibenez, warwick, etc,etc.) the tone is amazing and quite comparable to much more expensive brands. the action is great and the neck width is right where you would want it. the pickups are absolutely great, no need to replace them unless you have a very specific brand you want. its active too so it sounds phenomenal through any amp (unless the amp cant handle the power pushed through it.)
    the only down sides are that this bass is pretty heavy. if im jamming for 3hrs or so I have to sit down with it so my shoulder gets a break (bad shoulders anyway).
    another down side but very minimal is that its a little tricky getting the B string through bridge but a solid tug will do the trick. other than that it is a bass you wont have to replace if your looking for an upgrade that anyone can afford
