I'll start off by saying this is an excellent guitar for them money. I have owned 2 Ibanez electric guitars and this one plays better than both of them. It stays in tune one heck of a lot better than my previous Ibanez RG series guitar w/ floyde rose. I bought this guitar, because it looked nice, didn't have a Floyd rose tremolo, and had great reviews. The fret board is excellent, the finish (walnut) is also very nice and attractive, and the tuners do their job.Now for the cons. This guitar does have a couple cons though. For one the tone knob is terrible! It's either on or off. Clean, or extremely muffled, no in-between tone. Personally I always leave it clean, so this is not really a problem for me. But I have heard of some replacing the knob.Second off the neck pickup is really terrible. It is not worth using anything but the bridge pickup, even a combination sounds terrible when playing clean or with metalish distortion. The bridge pickup is quite good on the other hand. I personally am going to order Duncan or Dimrazio pickups and have this guitar really own it up.And lastly, quite a minor detail, but it comes with no manual. So I have to go online and search on how to adjust the action, as I'm getting a tiny bit of fret buzz on the 1st fret and sometimes 2nd. This should be no problem to adjust.I searched and was seriously considering several ESP's in the same price range, and an Ibanez that was a little more with EMG designed pickups, but I fell on this one, and think I made the right choice!Other than that it plays like a dream and I would recommend ordering the guitar with some better pickups, and it would make a wicked guitar. Thanks for reading and good luck with your guitar search!

The Schecter Oman 6 is nearly worth what you have to pay for it. I've had a Fender Squire with single coil pickups and mini fret board and this guitar completely blows it away(obviously) . Be careful when choosing the Walnut Satin finish though...when i got it, it was a rosewood(redish) color not the shiny black finish in the picture, aka very ugly! I had to call the headquarters and swap for a black finish! Idk if they have fixed this issue or not so be warned lol. The black finish is very nice, and it has chrome knobs! Playability is nice, and you can do harmonics with ease! I would only recomend switching out the pickups for better ones but other than that this guitar is a pretty good buy!
Black finish is nice, chrome knobs.
Needs better pickups..

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen 6 Electric Guitar:

Buy this if you are starting out, I did when I was starting out and I am still happy to own this guitar, I have made modifications, but the guitar itself is a great design!
I have owned the Schecter Omen 6 for several years now. It is really a great cheap guitar. You will not be dissatisfied with it, if you are just starting out, and want something you can customize to your liking. The only complaints I have in this guitar are the factory pots, they are cheap and invariable. This limts the tones the guitarist can get. With the factory pots it is either all or nothing, in terms of gain and clarity. I have done modifications on my Omen 6 because of this, but my syle of playing is the main influence for the changes I've made. I have upgraded to a Seymore Duncan Sh-6 bridge and neck set, and have rewired to exclude the tone knob. Currently, I also am using non-stock pots, these are pots I had on-hand but tested to have a different, and more favorable resistance, to acheive a bright and punchy sound that I was looking for. The fit and feel of this guitar is wonderful, the neck plays smooth, the frets are accurate, and the sound is respectable and bold. I own a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 with the FR. The EMG pickups in it sound like turds, in my opinion, and the sustain is terrible. My favorite guitar, the one I practice on the most is the Omen 6, I would buy another one and paint it RED, then customize it!
Ok
Great!

I have played a few Gibson Les Pauls before, and this guitar pretty much matches the quality! I got this guitar for christmas in 2005 and it is showing no signs of getting worn out. If you are reading the reviews for this guitar wondering if u should get it or not, GET THIS GUITAR U WON'T REGRET IT!!

Omen Player

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen 6 Electric Guitar:

I have owned 3 guitars so far, a strat, bc rich kerry king custom, and now my omen 6, it is by far the most comfortable and easy to play. It is versatile and clean to play, I also play it through a line 6 spider 3 30 watt amp and the only complaint is that it gets a slight scratchy sound with my amp setting, other than that I love it.

A great guitar for anybody!

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen 6 Electric Guitar:

This is one of THE greatest guitars I have ever played (especially within this price range).The guitar bolt-on neck is very sturdy, and has not given me any problems (I've owned it for a year and a half now).I have tried many other guitars, and have only passed one which is slightly more comfortable to play than this (but it is also a $600 guitar). Out of an average of maybe 30 other guitars I've played, this one ranks pretty good.I have had a few problems with the hardware (inside) and have had to replace the output plug. But of course, that could happen to any guitar.Sound wise, this thing sounds pretty damn good. I get virtually no hum or outside interference through the pickups, and it puts out a great tone for any style of music. Playability - This guitar is EXTREMELY comfortable. The neck is shaped and sized so it makes playing much easier and more comfortable. As I stated earlier, I have owned this guitar for over a year and a half, and have had a minimal amount of problems with it, and I still prefer it over almost all other guitars.I would highly recommend this guitar to any player, beginner or experienced.Schecter is a great company and makes great instruments. They are much underrated in the guitar world right now.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen 6 Electric Guitar:

My friend bought me this guitar to replace one that he had broken years before.It has since become one of the best things that ever happened to me. My schecter is such a part of my playing that if it were ever to go missing I would buy another schecter and mod it exactly as it is now, though I would get the much sexier red color.The features are kind of standard, but I have added a dimebucker and some sperzel locking tuners to it, so now its become a much better guitar, but I could never replace the feel of it.The weight of it, the neck profile...Its the best guitar you will get for the price.Just buy it allready.

Best cheap guitar for tinkering with.

By CS93

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen 6 Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for a little over a year, and i sort of have mixed feelings for it. First off this is a cheap guitar, it will eventually have it's minor flaws such as lose wiring, lose cable jack, etc. Second, this is one of the best playing guitars I have ever played on!!!!! It is very versatile for me, as I play anything from contemporary music to thrash metal. The stock pickups are....eh. I switched out with a pair of dimarzio evolutions and wow!!! It plays beautiful piano clean tones and I can get some of the nastiest, snarling, screaming lead tones I can think of!!!! Really my only major beef about it is the old school neck joint and the cuttaway, seing as I have rather large hands, it makes it difficult for me to play some of the higher frets. But if you want something that's versatile, can be experimented with, and has a low price, this is the way to go.

Simply The Best!

By Steve-pqbv_

from Wausau, WI.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen 6 Electric Guitar:

Plain and simple, their is no better guitar in this price range that is even close, maybe-just maybe a Dean Razorback(which I also own)but I find myself playing the Omen because it is comfortable and plays any kind of rock I want to play, EXTREMELY well. I have the Razorback strung heavy and use it for drop B&C, and use the Omen for everything else.Seriously the Oman is the best guitar in the $300.00 price range and is capable of blowing away much more expensive guitars!
