a perfect first 7

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

This is an incredible guitar for the money - I bought this as my first 7 string just as a knockaround guitar, but it turned out to be such a great instrument I recorded my first solo EP with it. Body/neck combo is comfortable and very solid - it's near impossible to knock this thing out of tune. The pickups give the strings a great snap when it's overdriven, plus you can pull off harmonics like there's no tomorrow. The pics of the blue paint do it no justice, as the real thing looks much richer & deeper. A great guitar, you won't be disappointed.

This is my first 7-string and it is perfect for people new to 7-string guitars. the finish is great, it's great for metal, and it's other qualities: unexplainable. I cannot recommend this guitar highly enough.

Your first 7-string guitar

By Megaman17

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I got this one a few years ago, when it had a different head shape. It was my first 7-string guitar, and I was going to just try-and ended up with keeping it. The finish was ok- not perfect or flawless, but well done. Pickups were Duncan Designed humbackers which had prenty power but not much of a clean sounding pickups. I might have swapped them with Duncan's... The frets were jumbo side, wide and tall. You have to be aware of that all Korean schecter guitars need fret jobs and setup to kill all the buzzes across the fretboard. I took care of that and did enjoy playing it. My only complain was that the guitar was VERY heavy, at least for my skinny self. But for the price, I would say, it's a great guitar with a lot of potential.

Great Guitar!

By Aaron Frederick

from BC, Canada

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

Overall, a 9.
An absolutely great guitar for the money, Solid neck, lightweight construction, attention to detail and overall quality of the instrument are all amazing.
The only real downside to this guitar is the neck joint, its a little harder to get around and most other bolt ons dont have this problem, not sure if the neck plate is thicker than standard or what.
Great guitar for the price, schecter has always been known for quality and affordability.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

alrighty, where to begin. This guitar is exelent for the money. great stock sound, wired in the USA, light, durable, ect. Plenty of reasons to buy this guitar. Its really solid and stays in tune well. my only complaint is the pickups. They are a bit sloppy on the lower end, but ive had worse so i cant really complain. go ahead and buy it.

GOOD, BUT NOT IBANEZ GOOD

By Caboose243-D_7Wb

from Cali

See all my reviews

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

first off, the only reason i bought this guitar is because i couldnt wait to have a seven string and couldnt afford an Ibanez that had a floyd. but, i was surprised at the quality of this guitar. the pickups are a bit week and the action is pretty high. Also, im running .10-.60 strings and the top .60 would barely fit in the post. I tune to A standard (i play KoRn) and it does a fair job, but the Ibanezs are much faster and more comfortable to play...save up for even the most basic ibanez 7 string if you have the choice.

Awesome Seven-String

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I'm very pleased with this guitar. It's way better than Ibanez or Peaveys seven-strings could ever hope to be. Sound is great, looks great, could have a better bridge for even more stable tuning, but it's still great

Great Guitar for your first 7-string!

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I don't have this specific guitar, I have an Omen-7 Extended scale, and I have a different headstock...I have had this since July, and it's SO easy to play with! The transition from 6-7 string, effortless, but on my side, keep playing a six string (if you like 'em), because it's VERY different trying to play six...Overall, the guitar will take the punch, the tuning holds GREAT even when traveling, the price was awesome. It's a buy!

Powerful sound, powerful value

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

Plugged it in, the sound quality blew me away. I've always wanted a seven-string and now that I have one, I'll never go back! This guitar is by far the best guitar for the price.

Great tone on an extended scale for cheap

By shZx0Boor

from Undisclosed

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar. The dual humbuckers give it a great heavy tone. I often leave it with the low string tuned down to act like dropped D but lower. The added freedom to just play around is also great. My only problem is with the quality. Mine developed a "dirty pot" that needs to be fixed. Also, as someone who likes to play around a tremelo would be nice. Other than that this is a great guitar that I love to play.

Many pros ,Few cons

By G66dvNODB

from Newport ,Or

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

The Schecter Omen-7 is very good quality but as they say your getting what you paid for. I compared it to more expnsive 7's and had the option of buying them but ultimatly chose this one. It was constructed well and remains in tune. My biggest complaint is the pick ups. This company emphasises guitar construction. I have a B-52 half stack and a 25 watt Ibenez tone blaster. I've noticed that with both amps there is a delay in the amount of time between the struck notes and the sound emanating from the amps ,a "lag" if you will. I will eventally replace them. The other complaint is the chord jack ,it is on the bottom of the guitar. I say that because I own a stratocaster as well ,if I am sitting the chord will not risk damage. As far as pros go the asthetics and design is what sold me years ago in the catalog I favor a tune-o-matic bridge and I'm not sure why. I want to put a locking nut on the guitar as well but the tuning keys are great and can handle strenuous bends. I also plan to change the pick up selecter and add a volume as well as tone knob. I belive many products are overrated as well as overpriced. I would give this guitar a 5.0 but knowing the guitar and the buyers budget I would like to write what the buyer is getting into. In my opinion it's a "fixer upper" ,but being an artist thats part of the fun. I hope this reveiw has been helpful ,keep in mind that no two guitars are the same.

Good beginner 7

By Archenemy24

from New Mexico

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

A very good beginner 7 string. the neck pickup is a little muddy clean but the bridge pickup sings and has good harmonics. But both pickups really shine with distortion. the only real problem i had with this guitar is the fact that the lower cutout is a too small for my hands making it hard to play the higher frets on the lower strings, but other than that its a solid guitar.

Solid guitar but very much for a beginner

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

Great 7 string if you've never played one or just want to mess with one. I own 2 Ibanez RG 7 seven strings and both feel better than this. I've played other Schecter 7's(which I hated) and this one is better for me(because the Hellraiser 7 is a piece of crap) but it's still very amateur. The neck is a bit wide for a 7 string and it's obviously not a top of the line guitar but then again it's not that expensive. It does sound good and gives you a good range. The bridge is something I like on a 7 string(mine have a tremolo and fixed so this was a new thing for me but I loved it). For the price it's a good deal although I personally don't think it would stand up to my Ibanez because the neck is pretty beefy which is pretty stupid for a 7 but anyway, worth trying and overall a nice guitar.
