The omen 6 is the most recent guitar i've purchased and it'll most likely be the last. Right out of the box, it has a killer tone, great note clarity and excellent sustain. It has a great feel comparable to a PRS or Gibson guitar, very solid but not too heavy. I've run this guitar through a mountain of fx and it shines through better than any stock guitar in my arsenal. For the price of this guitar, you really can't be it, the closest being purchasing a cheaper guitar and then having to shell out for better pickups, which come standard on the omen 6. I can't imagine a feature or option other than slight cosmetic issues that i'd ever change on this beast.

I bought the omen six due to the fact that i left my previous guitar at home when i joined the army. I needed a decent guitar with a small pricetag and the omen six was a good deal. Although mine has fret buzzing from the first fret down, and it is difficult to fret the strings or perform bends. Although I hope that I can get this resolved by an expert who can fix these problems. But for the price it's definitly a good deal.

Great Guitar to start with

By Joseph Butler

from La Mesa, CA

This is an amazing guitar to start with, not too expensive, great sound. Mine came setup from factory perfect, didn't need much tweaking to get it how I like it. Changed to the strings I prefer and bam, I'm in love with it. I'm not an expert on guitars or sounds, so take that into account but I do highly recommend this.

best for the money

By Scott Trowbridge

from Takoma Park, MD

My main guitar is a Gretsch Country Gentleman, an amazing guitar with a distinctive tone. But I wanted something with a neutral tone for recording different types of music. No matter what effects you run on the Gretsch, you get a vintage meaty sound. So I tested a dozen guitars for 15 minutes or more each, on different effects on two amps on guitars $250 to $500. These included Epiphones, Ibanez�ۡ���s, a Washburn, a few Deans (fail), a Jay Turser (fail), a Gibson, a couple BC Rich's. This Omen won easily and stood up to testing better than some of the $400 guitars. (There were some $500 guitars that had a slight edge, but not enough to justify the $200). While Schecter seem to market itself as a metal guitar maker, the only things that stand out to me as being particularly `metal' are the thin neck and dual humbuckers. Knobs are volume, tone, and 3 position pick up switch. Action is extremely low with no buzzing. They had 9s on it at the shop and I changed it to 10s with no need to adjust the truss rod. I spent some time detuning it to see how well the tuners work with good results. But here is why it won my `versatile guitar contest 2011.' This guitar can sound like anything. With the tone knob in the middle and both Humbuckers up, cycling thru my Yamaha Magic Stomp with every basic guitar sound from the last 50 years, it sounds great on all of them. You can get a nearly acoustic sound and a sound that would make Pantera fans happy (RIP DD).

overall good

By Jesse G

this guitar has a.24 fret rosewood fingerboard glossy finish butthe only problem I found were the string I recommend you to buy new thick strings because these are too weak for my tastes

This guitar is simply amazing!

By Derrick

from Green Bay, WI

I have owned many different brands and styles of guitars over the years, several of them cost me way more than this Schecter Omen 6. Don't let the price tag fool you... this guitar is my favorite of all time! It is light weight, has a wonderful tone, the fretboard is smooth, and it is very comfortable to play. The quality of Schecter is amazing for the price. The only thing that I would suggest is possibly swapping out the pickups down the road for some EMG's for a crisper tone. I have had this guitar for several months now and can't wait to get home from work to play it everyday. Love it, love it, love it!!!

GREAT guitar

By Jack

from Wethersfield, Connecticut

This guitar is amazing. Ive had it foraround 2 months. Not only does it look amazing, it plays and handles well. I cant tell you how many times ive banged it on things. I nailed it on the corner of a wooden table, and it damaged the table. Not a scratch on the guitar.

good guitar

By Josh

from Merrimac MA

This is a good guitar for the price. I would say this guitar is more of a metal guitar than anything else. The gloss black finish looks awsome! The pick up are OK, what you'd expect from a 300 dollar guitar. my only complain about the guitar is it has some fret buzzing from the first fret up. This is not the best rock or blues guitar. I would not buy this guitar again, but would rather cough up an extra 50 to 100 bucks and get an Epiphone SG 400 or Studio, a much better guitar for the money. I regret buying this guitar, but it's not bad overall.

Ground Wire

By AssCrustGoblin

from Redmond, WA

The guitar has a constant buzz when plugged into an amp. I decided to take a look and see what was wrong with it. I found that the guitar doesnt have a ground wire. This is a fairly easy fix but if you're not into working on your guitar and u play gigs i wouldn't reccomend this guitar to you.

A year later and it's still great.

By Matt

from Superior, WI

I got this guitar a year ago, and it's still great. When I first got it, I had only been playing for about 3 months. Now that I've been playing longer and am better, I really know how good this guitar is. As I said before, you can play practically anything on it. I've played stuff like Seether and Nirvana, then stuff like Slipknot or In Flames. This guitar can do it all. The only complaint I have is the pick ups. Maybe I'm just picky, but this guitar would be twice as amazing if it had emg's on it.
