      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar in November after trying it out at the guitar store. The tremolo system is outstanding and stays in tune no matter how you beat on it. But you must choose between standard tuning or other, like drop D, and stay with that while practicing or jamming as changing the tuning takes longer than just tuning a few strings. But by design, once you get it tuned it stays amazingly in tune. The pick ups that came with it were just OK and the tone knob didn't noticeably change tone. I wanted to try some active pick ups anyway, so I installed some EMG 85/81's (yeah that was fun dismantaling the entire electronic section) and now this guitar is even better and sounds amazing. The action, for me, is perfect. If you're looking for an electric guitar and want bang for your buck, this guitar is excellent. You may even like the factory pickups depending on what you like to play. Just another guitar players opinion. Some like Strats and some like Les Pauls. Both are outstanding guitars but I think I found the best of both worlds.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar:

        I bought this guitar just to practice and use together with the roland GK3. I got surprised with the finishing, beauty and play ability. Thus, I decided to add more punch, and I put an original floyd rose and a pair of seymour duncan. I have 5 guitars (american gibson and fenders, and PRS), and this guitar is an excelet acquisition, mainly because it is very cheap.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar:

          I got this guitar for Christmas and have had a lot of quality time with it. It's a solid, well constructed, BEAUTIFUL instrument.

          It's gorgeous to look at and just feels "right" when I play it. My only complaint is the frets. I like to bend hard so I use light gauge strings. Sometimes I get a little overzealous and (with these light strings) down pick the open (bottom) e too hard. Sometimes when I do this, the string travels down too far and hangs up in a tiny little "notch" where the fret meets the neck. Usually around the 3rd fret. This obviously mutes out the string and eventually will bust the string. When the string gets hung up, I have to use my fingernail or pick to pull the string out of that notch.

          I've played other Schecters and have never noticed this on other guitars. BUT, my instrument was purchased USED and maybe the dude who owned it before me messed up the frets or something, or maybe this is why he got rid of it. If I drag a finger across the end of frets 3 & 4, I can feel a little snag. I'm sure this can be fixed, but it shouldn't be an issue in the first place.

          Aside from the fret snag, I love everything about this guitar. I can't put it down. Obviously, if you like to play a lot in alternate tuning, get a second guitar, or avoid the locking tremolo. The tremolo is solid, you can dive way down and she goes right back into perfect tune (if you have quality strings). After I got it, I immediately took off the bridge cables it came with and replaced them with Ernie Ball Super Slinky's (9 gauge). They work perfect with this tremolo. It's got a clean, crunchy sound that I love (Not that it matters but I play through a Line 6).

          In all, this is a solid guitar for the price. Schecter does it right (though I would like to talk to them about those frets). For my level of play (jamming, small venues, etc.) it's perfect. I really like this thing. I think Schecter is establishing itself as a player in the guitar bizz.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar:

          I played this guitar at a music store today... All I can say, BEAUTIFUL. This is the most beautiful guitar I have ever seen. The fret inlays took me by surprise because online, they look simple,but when you take a real look they are absolutely stunning. They remind me of stained glass. The transparent black finish is gorgeous. I love the quilted maple body. The Licensed Floyd Rose tremolo is too good to be true. The only problem i have with it is that it doesn't sustain as long as i want it to. Then again, i have high expectations and this guitar met every single one of them. The pick ups are a little buzzy but its not noticeable unless you try hard to listen. This guitar is preferrably for people who play metal, hard rock music. For the price, you can't beat it and it's not made in China!I will change the stock pick-ups with some EMGs and change the strings once I get it. Buy this guitar, because if you don't someone else will! I certainly will buy it!

              I just got this from Musicians Friends and still havent been able to wire it, but in looks It passed all my expectatives. I've had fender, Gibson, Ibanez and this mid budget guitar kill them all. All the details such as the beautiful "V" inlays that undercomes with turquese flashes are awesome. The wood on body, neck feels so strong, the color on the floyd rose tremolo are sober too and finally the black through color looks so elite and agressive at the same time. I hope the sound of the pick ups are as good as this hot good looking guitar.

              Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar:

              If you;re looking for a well rounded guitar, you can;t beat this. Schecter has done an amazing job. spend the extra money for a hard case to protect it.
              This guitar has it all. Coil splitting, great responsive pick-ups, a thin fast neck ,locking nut ,floyd rose ,great wood. But most of all it sounds good thru just about any amp.
              I am very impressed with this guitar. I played one in the studio one day and just had to get it. The guitar is very versatile. I play a lot of different genres and this guitar covers them all. It came set up right out of the box. perfect action and intonation. just had to fine tune a couple of strings. The floyd rose holds its tuning well, A beautifully built guitar. The finish is a work of art. nice binding , nice neck inlays. I've owned and played a lot of guitars and this one ranks among the best. Ive played guitars that cost thousands of dollars that dont sound better than this.
              For the price this guitar is incredible.

              Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar:

              So I got this guitar a few weeks ago and just played two consecutive gigs with it.I'll start off with features. Mine is black cherry, and is quite a beautiful guitar. It has a wonderful licensed Floyd Rose that stays in tune very well (In 2+ weeks of owning it, I only had to tune it out of the box). The coil tap helps a lot with cleans, and the pickups are amazing. I am giving it a 4.5 in features simply because there isn't a tone knob, which I happen to use a lot, but it won't be a problem.Quality? I've played Gibson Les Pauls, American Fenders, American Jacksons, and other various guitars and I can safely say this beat them all. The neck is thin but not super thin (Even though I shred a lot, I like a slightly less thin neck). The fretboard is really flat, and it has just great playability. The Floyd Rose stays in tune, and the pickups are amazing. I won't switch them out.Bottom line, buy this guitar if you want something that acts like a high budget guitar with a low budget price tag. This will be my guitar for years to come, and it is a beaut to look at and play.

              Schecter that plays like an ibanez

              Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar:

              I have to say i brought this when musicians friend had a price cut sale.when i got it. it was perfectly set up.I plugged it in too my microcube practice amp and it started feed backing like crazy.when they say schecter high-out plus pickups its true.the over tones of the pickups is incredable.and then again it reminded me of steve vais gem.so i brought my ibanez rg out with steve dimarzio evolution pickups in it and compared the two tones.sure enough they are power equally powered.Its an amazing guitar.i dont see many reviews on the floyd rose.psh Its rockin Bad horsie all the way.And the bar flutters are endless.The sustain from the maple wood is endless as well.And the neck of the scheter is thin and fast like an ibanez.i recommend to get this guitar its my best buy yet!
