This bass is awesome. I got it about four months ago. It's very easy to get to the 24th fret. Yeah. 24 frets. This bass is crazy. I dont know any people who use the 24th fret very often on bass, but it's there just incase. This bass came with Elixer strings, which for those of you who dont know what they cost, it's $40. Yeah. Awesome strings. And I've never had to change the battery yet, even though everybody says this bass has a short lasting battery, but it's lasted since December, and it's still working great. Not only does it have a killer body, but it has perfect weight also. It's should cost more than $350, so you could say its a steal at it's price. I recomend it to anyone.

I bought one a while back, and I loved it. Then it quit working. I sent it back and got a new one, and a couple weeks later, it cut out again. I'm never going to buy a Schecter again. When it did work, it was an amazing bass, but I don't trust them now.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

    Been playing this particular bass for about 3 years. Over the years I've played a variety of basses and this one performs right up there with mid ranged Gibson and Fender basses. I'm not really sure why the price isn't higher but I'm not complaining. I play a minimum of 4 hours a week and usually only change the battery every 4 or 5 months (the only time it actually "died" on me was when I accidently left it plugged into the amp cord for several days. To be safe, always carry a new battery and/or change it before a gig. This guitar is built like a tank and stays in tune better than most.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

      My first Schecter guitar purchase was kind of an accident (a price too good to pass up). This bass purchase was on purpose. I am now a Schecter believer for excellent quality at a very affordable price. A solid and good sounding bass for the money. I play it through a Fender Rumble 30 and use it for Rocksmith. I am a novice and have lost most of my hearing but still have a lot of fun playing in my dreams.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        First of all the one I received was the new model and looks a little different with "dagger" inlays. It looks fantastic. About the bass itself, the finish and quality is superb. The tone is excellent and the pickups allow for a wide range of sounds from jazz to rock to hip hop. The body is pretty light and comfortable, you can play this for a gig and not have any problems. The neck is slim and fast. The action was PERFECT straight from the factory. No other guitar or bass I have ever purchased has been set up so perfect without setting it up myself. I bought this bass thinking it would be cool to practice and jam with, but I will gig with it along with my Fender American J Bass. I will look to Schecter products in the future as well, this is my first time buying anything from them, and I am 100% satisfied.

        Awesome value for the entry level

        By George Fernandez

        from MA

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        Overall with the economy being what it is. If you are in the market for a bass that has great features for a low price look no further, you have found what you are looking for.
        It plays great, sounds great through several different amps(GK, Hartke, Fender, and even a Line 6 POD X3).
        From the wood to the finish, right down to the electronics, This is one solid bass that will last a lifetime. Wether you play Standard tuning or Drop D this thing packs a lot of punch, notes are reproduced clear and clean. Playing is effortless due to the smaller neck radius and profile.
        I highly recommend this to any beginner or seasoned pro.
        Try one for yourself and you won't be disappointed.
        Active EQ is superb. The range of tone you can get is priceless. Playing Bass for less than one year and loving every minute of it. Got this Bass to replace a Squire J-bass that I started on. small neck contour allows even small hands to play effortless. The action is that of a much higher priced instrument. It has handled weather extremes very well(from cold dry days -5 last winter to sweltering hot days 102 with 70% humidity) and not lost an ounce of playability.

        The only thing I would have liked is a battery door that you do not have to unscrew, not that it is an issue, just would have made changing a battery a bit quicker.

        Remember to unplug the guitar cable when not playing to conserve battery life, it is active pick-up after all.
        Quality is right up there with other higher end basses. The finish is tough. I have not been gentle with handling as much as I should. Every component is strong and reliable. Could not ask for anything more for the price.

        Solid construction, smooth finish and lines. This bass is almost a work of art. The tuning machines don't feel cheesy like some of the other basses in this price range. The bridge is very well constructed also.
        The back of the neck has what appears to be a satin finish. Now this may not be a big deal to most, but I found that playability better with a satin finish than a gloss one. Left hand moves faster with less effort than on a gloss finish.
        Schecter has done what their name implies. They researched what would make a great value and not be a cheap feeling or sounding instrument. This is not your run of the mill cheap bass. It has the most quality for your hard earned dollar, making it a very exceptional value. This is my mainstay bass if it were to fail due to normal use, I would have to rely on the back up that is loaned to me from a band mate. I don't thankfully have to worry about that being an issue. Would definitely buy another in the future.

        Big Sound, Small price!!!!!!!!!!!

        By CJ SHUTT

        from KCMO

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        This bass is killer, it has all the punch and power you will ever need. The active EQ is neat to, but you have to be sure to turn it off after you are done playing, or it will eat your battery up. Because it's an active EQ, turn the EQ nobs to the left?towards the headstock. I paired my omen up with the GK MB115, the tone is amazing!!! The punch i get is ridiculous, i never thought i'd be able to gig with the MB115, but now i'm pretty sure i'd be just fine. Let me once again say how good and LOUD this bass is. It's great for your runs, and a good value for whaty your getting. This is a bass you could start with and never outgrow. This is one of the reasons why i will never buy another bass unless it's a Schecter. Love it!!!!

        Great sound, loud as any other bass, and good on the pocket book. I play through a Galien Kruger MB115, and just the tone and volume i can get are unbelieveable. I would tell anyone who's just statring out, or a seasoned pro to get a schecter bass. I don't believe youi will go wrong. Thanks for knocking it out of the park Schecter.

        Great Bass-Requires little maintenance

        By Amy

        from Peoria, Arizona

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        I bought this bass 8 years ago and still play it regularly. I am impressed at how well it has held up given the abuse it's taken! It sounds great despite a few problems I noticed throughout the years: -the volume knobs have cut out a few times, but can be easily cured by turning it all the way down and up again -the E string vibrates against the fretboard when notes lower than A are played. This can be fixed by raising the strings a little above the fretboard. -I noticed that the battery died once or twice since I bought it. Obviously replacing it with a new 9volt is the solution. - The most recent problem (within the past week or so) is that the nut fell off the place the chord is plugged into. Easily fixed by replacing the nut. These were not major issues, and for anyone looking to purchase this bass, I highly recommend it. I hope this review was helpful!

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

        I got this bass 6 months ago and it's great. The EMG 40hz pickups are a dream, I get the tone I want and with frets going all the way up to 24 I can play it anyway I can think of. If your into bass I 100% recomend this Schecter, or for that matter any Schecter because they stock every bass with EMG pickups and the tone for bass is killer. And the prices are awesome.
