The Omen-4 electric bass guitar is the perfect bass for beginners to intermediate players. Quality woods and great sounding electronics give this bad boy a fully-loaded arsenal for the sonic onslaught that awaits.
Rosewood is naturally oily and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact, which is why it's used on the Omen-4. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.
The Omen-4 has a smooth playable maple neck. 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 that complements the warm tones of a mahogany body.
The Omen-4 comes well-equipped with Schecter diamond plus pickups. Over wound coils with a ceramic magnet give these aggressive high output pickups the push that will send your amp over the edge. Made for crunchy rhythms and blistering leads, they're also perfect for drop tunings. This pickup will cut through the mix with ease. You'll get a sparkling single coil tone when the push-pull knob is pulled up.
The Omen-4 comes with high quality tuners featuring 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.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen-4 Electric Bass Guitar:
I bought this bass for 3 reasons. First, I always wanted a Schecter because they're cool. Two, I wanted an active rock bass to compliment my passive J and P style basses. Three, with the low price plus a Thanksgiving sale discount, it was too good to pass up. Very happy with the purchase. I gives me that big fat tone plus the sizzling highs I was looking for. It's gorgeous with the crème binding, cool inlays and Smokey hardware. Nice headstock too. It required a slight truss rod adjustment, but that went quick as the truss rod worked perfectly. Took me a total of 3 minutes. The bass plays fast and easy with it's slim neck. The knobs are ok but not great, however the tuners work very well which is more important, IMO. Style says rock but with elegance. I prefer it over the Omen Extreme model.
