Make the 7-string leap without blowing your budget!

With features and sonics that rival axes costing twice the bucks, the Omen-7 is an awesome value. Equipped with a 25-1/2" scale mapleneck, rosewood fingerrboard with 24 jumbo frets, dual Schecter Diamond Plus humbuckers, and a Tune-o-matic-style bridge with string-thru.

Rosewood Fingerboard
The most commonly used fretboard wood, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Schecter Diamond Plus Pickups
Overwound coils with a ceramic magnet give this aggressive high output pickup the push that will send your amp over the edge. Made for crunchy rhythms and blistering leads. Perfect for drop tunings. This pickup will cut through the mix with ease.

TOM Bridge with Thru-Body
Classic design Tune-O-Matic bridge with a Schecter 'String Thru' body tail, for added string tension, sustain and clarity.

Schecter Tuners
These high quality tuners feature 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.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-7 7-string Electric Guitar:

Taking the guitar out of the box the first time, you will need to tune the guitar. All I did was tune it and the intonation was nearly accurate and I could start playing. The strings were dead when it arrived, but that is to be expected with any new in box guitar since the strings are not sealed in a package and traveled halfway around the world. Once it was upgraded, the guitar sounds excellent and plays decent. Nice feel until you play leads on frets 17-24, then the bolt on neck gets thick. Fixed bridge is great for drop tuning.
Nothing flashy, but very good in this price range. Maple neck & Rosewood fretboard - same wood combo of higher end guitars. Bolt on style so a bit thick from frets 17-24. The inlay is plain white dot. 24 XJumbo frets. Schecter branded tuners. TOM bridge. Schecter pups. String thru body is nice and it has a very attractive walnut finish. 26.5" scale helps the sound and function.
-Excellent job on the Walnut color finish.
-The action is great with 10-56 strings
-The bridge is easily adjustable and does not buzz
-The tone & Volume contols turn smooth and are quiet
-The input jack holds the cable tip snug
-Nice materieals on the neck Maple & Rosewood
-Basswood body helps brighten the low end when playing in drop A
-The Schecter pickups are cheap looking, but sounded good with high gain distortion on my 6505+. I upgraded them to Duncan Blackouts phase 1 and it really made the guitar sound awesome!
-The nut is not good. The higher end Schecters use a graphtech nut, but this one is just plain plastic, so the strings catch in the groves so it makes tuning difficult.
-The Schecter Tuners have slight play while tunig. It will get in tune, but just takes a little more work.
-The frets are somewhat level. A couple spots needed leveled and the fret edges were a bit jagged.
Really, it's a ton of bang for the buck. It would make a great first 7 string guitar or upgrade from a really lame 7 string!

Cheap 7-String option that is great with upgrades

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-7 7-string Electric Guitar:

This a great entry level 7 string. Bought it for the low end (imagine that) and it does what I expected. If you want it to be great and you have some experience with soldering - buy some new pickups (Seymour Duncan JB4 - SH-2n combo for me) and change the pots (Duncan 500k pots) and you have a beast of a guitar. Would have been better if I used the active SDs but for the money I stick with SD hot rodded combo as in all my guitars. Buy it and enjoy it!!
The guitar is excellent for what you pay. Yes, the pickups are cheap and sound thin. The electronics are decent but can be upgraded to sound better without too much effort and money.
I like the basswood body, maple/rosewood neck and playability.
For the money I ask you to please find a better deal on an entry level 7 string.

oh no :( Schecter Omen 7

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-7 7-string Electric Guitar:

The neck on the guitar was warped when I got and the strings were laying flat on the frets...noting I can't set up my self. the stings that came on the guitar look like they are old and have been played for months. My biggest problem is that as soon as I pulled it out of the box I saw a big scratch on the side of the guitar beside the imput jack .
Just your standard 7 string guitar, nothing to special about it
then neck is really thin and the finish is beautiful, this guitar is very heavy so im sure it will sound great as soon as it's playable
For the price I guess you get what you pay for. I bought this just as an intro 7 string guitar so I'm not to worried about it.


A good start.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-7 7-string Electric Guitar:

So, I'm not sure about the other reviews, but I've only been playing about 2 years, and the pickups are pretty bad, they're muddy and not very clear. If you were to get some new pickups (I'm planning on EMG 707X pickups) this guitar would more than likely sound amazing. The action is great, strings are good for sliding and bending, the body is beautifully made and finished. Downtuning? Great!!! Playing modern bands like Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, it can handle the downtuning. Again, the only thing I would change are the pickups (and maybe the strings if you're not a fan of Ernie Ball's).
