Schecter's Omen Extreme-7 boasts a mahogany body with a quilted maple top, supercharged with a pair of Schecter Diamond Plus humbuckers that deliver the hard rock crunch needed to cut through today's modern metal and rock mixes.
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 mahogany body.
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.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Omen Extreme-7 Electric Guitar:
I got this guitar as an introduction to 7 string guitars. I wanted to be able to play low tuned heavy metal without having to put too much money into modifying a 6 string or getting a baritone. To start off with, I've never bought a guitar that was set up right out of the box to sound amazing, they always need a few tweaks. This guitar was perfectly set up right out of the box. And it looks VERY nice. The inlays on the finger board are top notch and the guitar as a whole is beautiful.
As far as sound, I was very surprised by these pickups. Playing clean they sound crystal clear, and with heavy distortion they hold the lows pretty tight with a lot of clearity in the higher registers as well. It's got a 26.5" scale witch really makes a difference when you tune down to A (I haven't gone lower on it yet, but I'm sure with a heavier gauge string it would sound great) The longer neck helps keep the tone and tension on the strings. As I said, I got this guitar to play metal, and it sounds great.
The extra jumbo frets are a dream for any metal head flying through those frets below 15. You couldn't miss a fret if you tried, so it's great for peeps who play a lot of high speed solos and use tapping or sweep techniques. The neck is also quite thin so it allows for even faster shredding. The wider fret board feels very nice, not too bulky.
My one issue (though small) is that, for me, the cut away in the body isn't quite as deep I would like. It makes getting my hand in the 22-24 fret position a littl uncomfortable. Though, I'm used to an Ibanez RG series which has a huge cut away. After some time, though, I've gotten used to it.
Overall, the Omen Extreme 7 looks and sounds like it's a MUCH more expensive guitar. I was blown away with the quality it is with the low price tag it has. This is definitely the best 7 string you can get in its price range. I would recommend this guitar for any metal head or for someone looking for a very solid 7 string
