    Schecter Omen-8

    I've had this guitar for about a week now and am absolutely in love with it. This is my first 8 string, and I jumped straight from a 6, no problem playing it at all. It's extremely comfortable to play, cleans are crystal clear, distortion is heavy, and it just looks bad***. Came out of the box professionally set up, amazing action, in tune, and ready to rock. The only reason I gave it 4.5 stars is because when drop tuning the F# to E, it can get a little floppy due to the scale length only being 26.5". All around it's a fantastic guitar for the money. As always with Sweetwater, shipping was quick, guitar showed up perfect, and my sales engineer, Mike Hammond, is an awesome and professional guy.

    I have to start off saying I love this guitar. I love music, I love every genre, jazz, metal, blues, ska, etc.
    This instrument which I was very skeptical about, blew my mind. People said it was 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.

    Well built and functional 8-string

    Excellent build quality as always from Schecter. It's simple, well finished and has clean fretwork. I'd like a longer scale length on am 8-string, but it's acceptable. If you're just transitioning to 8-string or don't have delicate dextrous fingers (I don't!) it's going to be a challenge to adjust to the narrow string spacing. I'd intended to use it for alternate tunings and fingerpicking as my first electric guitar since 1990, but the pickups don't have the right sound for my ears. Great distorted though. Definitely something you want to try out extensively before making the commitment. As always with Sweetwater, John Ptak handled the sale quickly and the setup was perfect out of the box.
