One Sweet Axe

By Schmotbone-sYb4v

from Oregon

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen Extreme 6 Special Electric Guitar:

This is a screamin' deal for such a beautiful well-playing guitar. The finish is flawless with a gorgeous "dipped in honey" appearance to it. The binding on the neck and body add some aesthetics and class. I love the black chrome hardware and the massive jumbo frets. The hardware is superb with Grover Tuners, a Tusq Nut and tune-o-matic style bridge w/thru-body string design. The neck is very fast (thin, flat and wide up high) and vector inlays look great. Last, but not least, are the EMG pickups. Some may criticize EMG 81/85 as being one-dimensional, but I have found them to be very flexible in their tone. Simply roll back the volume knob on the guitar to tame them and crank em up for grinding metal & solos. You can attain some warm tones with these if you just fiddle with the volume knob. Couple this guitar with a strat and/or a tele and you can do it all. This guitar is a keeper.

Upgrade Review

By jaydee-j1gk3

from Texas

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen Extreme 6 Special Electric Guitar:

I haven't played for a while, and decided to pick up playing again. I also decided to upgrade from my first guitar which wasn't the best. I am upgrading from a Squire Bullet, so this is indeed a big upgrade. That being said, the guitar is pretty awesome, and in all ways is ten times better than my previous guitar. The quality is nice, and the EMG 81/85 pickups sound awesome. Although I was a little disappointed by the packaging, the order was processed an shipped pretty fast. On top of that, the guitar was sold as used with the 10% discount. In my opinion the shape of this guitar is excellent and could be passed off as practically new, so I think I got an excellent deal.

Schecter vs LTD

By violingineer

from CO

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen Extreme 6 Special Electric Guitar:

I am trying this O-6 Extreme Special with a LTD MH401NT with assumption that 45-day satisfaction guarantee will be honored. Both guitars are very similar, with the only real difference being the Schecter is bolt-on where the LTD is set-neck. I will limit my review to the Schecter here:Fit/finish: flawless. This guitar is as good as my Michael Kelly.Appearance: the flamed cherry could have been even brighter, but I guess that's why they call it "black" cherry. It is very nice looking. Purfling is done very well, and is pretty.Feel: the neck is made out of that smooth finish (like my pool cue stick) and the problem with that is that it tends to collect dirt some--so when clean it is super smooth, but some dirt and it is not as smooth. Also, the guitar sits back a littl on your knee that allows a harder reach to the upper frets, which additionally is hampered by the large bolt on piece--which I do not like. Sound: sounds very similar to the LTD guitar, both have EMG 81/85 config. Good sustain. Although I have noticed at one of the upper frets does not speak very well, this could be due to the EMG's so close to the strings (but I moved them back a little, and it still does it.)Factory set up: this is where schecter shines, the EMG's were put very close to the strings, both about the same distance, there is no fret buzz, and the tune-o-matic bridge was set up very close---I checked it out with oscilliscope, and only had to adjust two of the screws very slightly. Overall, the schecter is a well made, great sounding guitar. For the price, the quality rivals my michael kelly (excellent/top of class). But, unfortunately the bolt-on neck, I can't get past--I just can't quite get to the top frets and have a pleasurable vibrato experience ;) Other than that, the guitar is great--though currently I'm picking the LTD over this guitar.

Incredible Axe for the Money

By Ed from Pueblo

from Pueblo, Colorado

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen Extreme 6 Special Electric Guitar:

This guitar has active EMG 81 & 85 pickups which are awesome. The pickups alone are worth $200 making this an exceptional value. I expected the pickups to have that heavy sound, but I was surprised by how clean they were. The maple neck is plain making it very fast. The build quality is great. Another value from Scheter and this site!

Omen Extreme 6 Special

By Shep6

from E.Central Illinois

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research 2011 Omen Extreme 6 Special Electric Guitar:

Came setup out of the box to my liking.This is my 3rd Schecter, the only one with active pickups,They are EMG's but not sure which one's for sure.The guitar itself is excelent,great feel, weight and balance, typical of Schecter.They are the most under rated guitar made, IMO, and i own 35 or 36 guitars to rate that on.The EMG's are going to stay,at least for now.I play through a Traynor YCVBlue, a Rocktron Replitone 212,A Crate 33 tube head with a 212 cab with Texas Heat speakers,and a Fender FM 100 head using the same cab. 2 thumbs up to Schecter for quality guitars and great prices.Check one out, bet you'll like it..
