Overview

The Schecter Omen-8 Electric Guitar offers an unbelievable range of notes for the modern guitarist. Equipped with two additional strings below the standard low-E, the Omen-8 adds a whole new dimension to your playing.

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 tuning machines
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.

Case sold separately.

Beautiful look, Beautiful sound

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-8 Electric Guitar:

I looked around for a while to try to find an 8-string that wasn't bigger than me. When I finally found Schecter's offering, I was elated that it not only had a normal (not baritone) guitar scale, but it was also availible in another color besides black or white. I got the walnut satin finish. When it came in, it was more beautiful then the pictures showed it to be. I plugged it in and discovered how narrow the neck was considering the eight strings. Granted, the strings are a little closer to each other than many guitars, but it suits my plating style very well. By the way, the two "extra" strings are B and F# below the low E. The girl can growl like a a cougar if you want her to. What a voice range and tone range this baby has, and for the price, the workmanship is truly outstanding. Mine came to me flawless and already set up for playing. I didn't need to adjust the action at all. I tuned her up and started making beautiful music. For someone who wants to try out an 8-string guitar without going broke, this guitar is a good investment.

Great guitar for a great price

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research OMEN-8 Electric Guitar:

I can't believe I'm the first to review this 8-string! I got my Omen-8 finished in walnut satin, and wow, was it worth the wait, which, actually wasn't that long. It came already set up and ready to play after tuning a couple of strings. Right out of the box, it had no string buzz or rattle anywhere, the action is low and the strings were not as far apart as I anticipated. I got used to the neck width quickly. It's tuned like a reg'lar 6-string but has two more strings in the lower register, a B and an F#. The voice is clean and clear. The goth-style fret markers are quite elegant. I think for the money, it's a very good investment. I got this model mainly because it is offered in a color besides black or white. Schecter does have some more expensive 8-strings in a nice choice of colors, but I'm very pleased and happy with mine. The strings feed through the back Strat style, which I find to be a nice plus. I recommend this guitar for those a bit uneasy about whether to try an 8-string or not.
