Fast neck, smooth action and nice tones.

By Anthony Greutman

from Ohio

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

This bass plays beautifully and produces a very nice tone. My only concern is that there is just a bit of fret buzz which generally does not come through the amp. The finish (Black Cherry) is breathtaking.

No Regrets Here!

By Don Francis

from Perryville, MO

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I was a little anxious with going from four strings to five, and a little more anxious in both spending too much or not spending enough. So I chose to trust the reviews and pick the Omen Extreme. It is a gorgeous instrument, relatively lightweight, and very versatile in tone. I play at the church sometimes and need the "fat and flat" sound but can easily get the punch I need on the more lively stuff. The only challenge I am having is on me, getting use to that extra B string and the slightly closer distance between the strings. Honestly I can find no down side with this guitar.

AMAZING!!!

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I love this guitar i have played a few 5 strings and this guitar is amazing my favorite guitar I had. I play in a metal band and no matter what amp i use this guitar has amazing tone. The look of the guitar caught my eye and the brand when you pick it up and play its the best guitar i have played.

Beautiful

By Meh

from Amarillo, TX

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I was looking to start playing a 5 string after a while, and this one immediately caught my eye. The bass itself felt very nice in my hands and when playing a few 5 string riffs I had memorized. I'm a fan of humbucker pickups, so these were perfect for me. After ordering and receiving mine (they had it back order for the longest time), it was set up perfectly out of the box. Surprising, I know, but there was no fret buzz, and the strings were perfect, after a little tuning obviously. I would definitely recommend this 5 string to anyone looking to step up from a 4 string.

One of the best 5 string basses around for rock and metal.

By Charles

from Los Angeles

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

This bass is absolutely beautiful. There is zero fret buzz, the pickups are wonderful for producing a heavy sound. If you have your mind on this bass, try it out at a local music store and see if it fits your needs. I would definitely compare this bass to the Ibanez SR505 or the Schecter Stiletto Elite 5 and see which one you like better. I personally love the finish (I got the trans-ocean blue). Great overall bass.

Beautiful axe featuring the real rock/metal tone.

By Felipe Giannazzo

from Saltillo, Coahuila

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

I bought this bass for the looks, but ended up admiring the sound it produces. I am a metal/rock player, so low tunings are a normal thing for me. This bass took my preference of high caliber strings and a Drop C tuning, without losing sound quality or playability. The electronics equipped on it are unbelievable, because it's the same as having an expensive active electronics set, without the need of a battery! For me, it�ۡ���s the perfect axe. I won�ۡ���t get tired of hearing people saying how beautiful my bass is! Thanks Schecter!

Lovely Guitar

By JimBo

from Taylor Mill, KY

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar:

Only had this guitar for a week, took it back because I preferred another one a little better. Still, this is a great guitar. The active electronics sound wonderful. The body design & finish (I got the trans-ocean blue) are super cool. The dark chrome hardware is very slick and adds a nice touch. A tad larger and heavier than most basses. The body has very square edges, rather than rounded ones. Great value, hard to be dissapointed with this one.
