Loaded with custom hardware (including a phenomenal hardtail bridge), the Omen-8 easily out performs just about any 8-string in its class. A pair of ultra-hot Schecter Diamond Plus pickups let you easily push any real amp into overdrive nirvana, and a great collection of tonewoods provides a solid foundation for extremely aggressive tone. If you've always wanted an 8-string, but couldn't afford the price of admission, then the affordable Schecter Omen-8 electric guitar was made for you.
Schecter Omen-8 8-string Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Overwound pickups deliver pure, heavy-hitting metal tone
What's an 8-string axe without hard-hitting tone to back it up? Loaded with custom-designed Schecter Diamond Plus pickups, your Omen-8 is guaranteed to deliver the crunchy rhythms and red-hot leads you live for. These overwound ceramic humbuckers easily pack enough punch to rocket any decent amp into overdrive ecstasy. From the lowest drop-tuned fundamental to the highest pinch harmonic, you'll feel every note your play on your Omen-8 thanks to these amazing pickups.
Custom Schecter hardware lets this 8-string axe perform like a champ
One of the great things in general about Schecter's more affordable guitars is the hardware. Unable to source an affordable 8-string bridge that still delivers the performance and stability serious guitarists demand, Schecter simply decided to create one. This Schecter Custom-8 bridge gives you the stability you need, plus a massive range of intonation, so you can custom tune your Omen-8 any way you like. Also a nice surprise, the 15:1 sealed and permanently lubricated tuning machines on the Omen-8 let you bend strings all day long without spending half your time tuning.
Killer tonewood combo balances rich sound with serious sustain
As with any electric guitar, the choice of tonewoods Schecter used has a huge impact on both the sound and feel of the Omen-8. To keep this not-insubstantial instrument light enough to play for hours yet resonant enough for metal, Schecter selected basswood for the body and maple for the neck. This combination gives the Omen-8 plenty of bite, without limiting the low-end impact you can expect from this guitar. Add to that a naturally conditioned rosewood fingerboard, and you've got killer sound and feel.

by Logan Kramer from Teaneck, NJI have to start off saying I love this guitar. I love music, I love every genre, jazz, metal, blues, ska, etc.

Music Background: Musician
This instrument which I was very skeptical about, blew my mind. People said it wa... read more [+]s very heavy (and I bring a guitar every other day to school), but this guitar isn't that bad. The weight's distributed nicely. Also, my pickups weren't voiced as bad as people say. I have the white gloss finish of this guitar and it's stunning. It has this nice bouncy tone which I can play with to fit whatever my needs are. The pickups are a bit muddy, but I'll change em out whenever. It's not a big deal.
The surprising thing to me was the neck. This guitar is actually more comfortable to play than my Ibanez S420, I don't know why, it just is. My guitar didn't come with much problem, but the strings were way too light. I adjusted it to remove buzz of the low E. But, I'm going to order the DR 11 gauge Tite-Fit 8 string set and go get this professionally set up for maximum epicness.
Killer 8 string. close [-]
