Schecter Guitar Research

Massive 7-string low end Schecter quality appointments.

With sonics and features that rival guitars costing twice the bucks, the Schecter Omen-7 is an incredible value.

Maple neck and basswood body
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 which complements the warm tones of a basswood body.

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

Schecter Diamond Plus pickups
Over wound 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, and perfect for drop tunings. This pickup will cut through the mix with ease.

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.

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

Case sold separately.

  • Basswood body
  • 26.5" scale bolt-on maple neck

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-7 Electric Guitar:

    I use this to play heavy and progressive metal, such as Periphery, Pomegranate Tiger, Between the Buried and Me, and Protest the Hero. It also handles cleans very well, such as Incubus.

    This guitar is an incredible value for its price. It sounds amazing and plays extremely smooth. Plus, the red walnut finish looks gorgeous in person and does not allow fingerprints, which is great for someone picky like I am. The guitar is quite light and its profile is very ergonomic; it's extremely comfortable to hold and play.

    As for the downsides, I find it difficult to access the 23rd and 24th frets, but that'll just be something I get use to and find a way around.

    I'd recommend getting this set up at your local music store to deal with the initial fret buzz, because it sounds perfect afterwards.

    I definitely recommend this to anyone who might be an experienced seven string player and doesn't really want to spend much more on some of the other models floating around. This would also be the perfect guitar for anyone who wants to get started with the seven string side of guitars.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-7 Electric Guitar:

      I played the omen 7 extreme in person at a guitar shop. There really isnt much of a difference besides look, and the wood of the neck. I bought the omen 7 because it was in my price range and I was purchasing my first 7 string. Needless to say, this guitar shreds! It came out of the box ready to play and holds its tunings like a champ! I play in B or drop A tuning alot and never have a problem with losing the tuning. Guitar is well constructed and I would recommend this to anyone. The only thing I would suggest is switching out the bridge pickup for maximum capacity. The Dimarzio crunch lab 7 is what I put in it and now this guitar plays like a 500-700 guitar. Buy this, you wont regret it! Shipped in less than a week too. Last but not least I know people use this for Djent type music, I play posthardcore metal music. There are reviews on youtube for this too.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-7 Electric Guitar:

        This is a good start for players who want to play an extended ranged guitar. It feels nice and is very appealing to look at. Overall the only real issue is the slight lack in tonal range in the pickups but really if you're playing this guitar you probably just want the straight metal tone which is there. Functions fairly well as a clean guitar too.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-7 Electric Guitar:

          Ive used these wonderful Schecter 7-strings for just about everything. From church, to practice, live concerts, even recording.
          I have always loved their guitars, and this one is no exception. Beutiful, great sound, etc. If the sound is not exactly what you like, you can always upgrade, but not always needed.

          Again, just an amazing guitar, and entirely affordable. Also perfect for that jumpt into 7-string guitars. I have also used them for jazz with great success.

          Great starter 7 string

          • Small Venues

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-7 Electric Guitar:

          This is great starter guitar for people who want to experiment with 7 string guitars. It has good action, nice feel to the neck, is surprisingly light considering it's a 7 string, and the paint job in the picture doesn't do it justice, it looks great!

          My only thing I'd complain about is that the pickups aren't too great to get all the punchy lows out. I'd suggest swapping them out for bare knuckle pickups if you want that periphery punch in your tone.
