Sounds muddy and neck is too fat. Get an Ibanez instead.

By Tony

from Dallas, Tx

I have been playing for 20 years. I have always wanted a 7 string and I finaly got one when I was about 20. I have owned 2 Ibanez 7 strings and I have played several schecter 7 strings and there is just no comparison. For one, the sound is way too muddy if you want to play metal that involves intricate picking. If you like shredding, the neck is too round and too fat. It does not compare to Ibanez Wizard or Prestige Necks. It feels chunky and clumsy and although it has that low end, it is lacking true clarity when you play chords. I thought that maybe it was just the amp I was testing it through, but sure enough, every amp I tested it through gave me the same feel and results as the last. NO true definition, no clarity in the bottom end and it was like holding a baseball bat with strings. All in all, if you want a great 7 string for the money, go with Ibanez, The next best thing would either be ESP and or Jackson. For Schecter, the 7 is an epic fail. Alot of times price means you get what you pay for and in this case cheaper is not better. Try a real 7 string and get an Ibanez.

Great affordable 7 string

By Jesse

from florissant MO

this guitar is my first seven string. i decided to get a seven string after i started listening to trivium and i looked at this one because its a schecter my favorite type of guitar, and it was affordable. i expected a halfway decent guitar that would just tell me if i would enjoy playing on 7 strings or not. i got a guitar ten times better than i expected. this guitar feels great, plays wonderfully, the clean tone on the neck pickup is absolutely beautiful and it goes extremely heavy. the only complaint i have is it is hard to reach the 23 and 24th frets, but that's it. i suppose it could have a floyd but then it would be twice as expinsive so i cant complain. i absolutely love this guitar and have no regrets about buying it.

Omen-7 =AN AWESOME GUITAR!

By Diego Rivas

from Wasco, California

I traded in my old Jackson Performer Ps-4 for this guitar. At first i was regreting it but once i got used to the seventh string it opened up a whole new world for me! the stock humbuckers sound great on comparison to my Jackson and B.C. Rich. Over all it's an awesome guitar. Buy it. you wont regret it.

Schecter Omen 7, 7-string

By Eric Irwin

from Camarillo, Ca.

At first i wasn't too happy with the guitar. It was definitley different to play than a 6 string and there seemed to be way too much string noise. I changed out the stock strings (D'addario) w/ some Ernie ball super slinky strings and had the strings raised off the fretboard, this did reduce the string noise and once i played the thing for a couple of weeks it really began to grow on me. Overall, it's an excellent guitar for the price and the low tones it provides w/ standard tuning are awesome, 24 frets and an extra B string give alot of room for growth. Worth the money.

AWESOME GUITAR

By Nathan

from Saracuse, NY

Really great guitar, worth the money i spend on it. Its really good in every aspect, but there are only two issues that i don't like about it. One is the strings, i feel, were too thin of a gauge if i wanted to droptune to A. The other issue is the pickups, since they are standard from Schecter, they aren't that great, you CAN get a good sound out of the guitar if you switch to the neck pickup though. I would recommend getting better pickups for the guitar, but the guitar itself is AMAZING, i am never going to get rid of it!

great guitar

By Alex

from blaine,MN

this guitar is my only 7 string, and it has opened my playing to more possibilities,heavier riffs larger scales and i recommend it to anybody and everybody for all music styles, it gets a large range of sounds, has a sharp warm clean tone, and you can get really heavy with it, the pull out knob lets in a lot more distortion and tapping and sweeps sound clean and smooth on this guitar, if you see this guitar don't pass up the chance on this great deal, buy it!!!

My favorite guitar

By Keith Mathews

from Chicago

I bought this guitar as a damaged item from GC about a year ago. I wanted a 7 string and got a great deal because someone dropped it and pushed in the bridge. I didn't touch it for a while, but when I started taking it more seriously, it quickly became my favorite guitar. I have neglected the other guitars in my collection Which I used to cling to) to play this one. The sound is very versitile. I can play any style with it. I never could just stick to one style, so when I realized what this guitar could do I was enthralled. It is absolutely worth the price. Great feel, easy playability, great finish, great sound. Best guitar I have ever bought. Jazz, blues, metal, country. I love it for my odd collages of music. I can't put it down. Made me fall more in love with guitar playing.

Cannot believe the Value for the price!

By EmadMan122

from Patchogue,Long Island

I got this guitar and the first thing i said was WOW! this is insane. Not only used for metal(dont get me wrong its crazy for metal) but it can be used for jazz and a heavy fat clean sound. The playing is amazing on this guitar. Im never going to sell it. However, if you are going to use the TREM-BAR, i would recommend to get string locks so the guitar doesnt go out of tune. But you cant beat the value for the price.

Schecter Omen-7 7-String

By Randy

from Missouri

Great instrument, I was really surprised by the quality for the price. With the 'tap' knob, very versatile in sound, this Schecter is great for more than just heavy metal and Jazz, a great country guitar and blues also. Good for brining out that country bass sound. The reason I rated it 4 was the high fret wires and heavy strings that came with it, good for heavy metal but not for Jazz. Those things can be easily taken care of though. Highly recommend!!
