  • Amazing one

    As reviewed by taz on 7/19/2010

    when i went to buy a guitar , i didn't plan to get this one, i just had in my mind that , i need one Floyd rose with 24 frets.so i start plugging couple of guitars, but when i took this in my hand , i felt something is different , and i just keep playing this one, the neck is rounded so fits hand nicely , excellent finish , intonation was perfect. after purchasing i haven't change the string but still going good, stays in tune perfectly, i couldn't believe this quality guitar with low price!! the pick up is an excellent high output pickup. i did some shows with it, it never lets me down.becomes my good friend. just get this guitar guys , schecter is awsome!! an equal exchange between money and the guitar. worth every penny.

  • Quite possibly the best guitar I've ever played

    As reviewed by Kevin on 8/18/2014

    I've been playing electric guitar on and off since the 60's. After selling my previous guitar (a Yamaha Pacifica), I went to Guitar Center and tried about 10 different guitars. My criteria was that I wanted at least 22 frets, I wanted humbucker pickups that had coil tapping so I could get both that "strat" sound and the full Les Paul sound, a whammy/trem bar, and a really playable neck with no buzzing or octave intonation problems. I tried LTD's, Ibanez, Fenders, PRS, BC Rich. Initially, I liked the Paul Reed Smith SE custom ($719), but then I tried the Schecter Hellraiser. The neck on this guitar was perfect. Thin, easy to hold and play. And 24 frets! However, the Hellraiser was around $800 and I had wanted to keep the price around $500. So I ordered the Schecter Omen 6 Extreme FR. It plays great, the neck feels just like the Hellraiser, it has Schecter humbucker pickups with coil tapping, and that amazing Floyd Rose locking whammy bar. I love this guitar. While I usually play rock and roll, I spent a couple of hours today just playing clean chords with no distortion. The sound is amazing on this guitar. Very rich, deep tone. And if you pull up on the tone control, the humbuckers go to single coil pickups and sound much like a strat. I am so impressed by the playability of this guitar. I have used the whammy bar over and over again, and the guitar just refuses to go out of tune. Compared to a regular bridge system, where if you bend notes too hard you have to retune, this stays in tune seemingly no matter how crazy you get with your bends-because the strings are locked at the bridge and locked down at the nut at the head of the guitar. Of course, if you crank up the gain on your amp, this thing will crunch with the best of them, and sustain even at fairly low volumes. The finish on the guitar is impeccable, and stunning, a deep red. Even the tech who replaced my strings for me (I wanted lower gauge strings) complimented the finish on the body of the guitar. I have not found a single problem or complaint with this guitar. It plays better than guitars costing twice as much. Highly recommended, especially for the price.

  • Simply Great

    As reviewed by Anonymous on 6/1/2011

    Strong build, 24 frets, great action...while Punk/Thrash/Metal definitely are Schecters strong point, you can pull off Blues, Jazz, Funk, Alternative, Grunge...it's very universal. The Pick-ups are easily damaged though, so be careful with it. Other than that, this guitar brings ease of play and great for guitarist of all levels. I would highly recommend for those interested.
