I bought this wonderful 8-string guitar just over a week ago but came to the conclusion that 8 strings is one too many for me. But don't let my dissatistfaction discourage you, this is an excellent guitar! 24 extra-jumbo frets, 26.5" scale length, hardtail bridge, great finish, and the stock pickups sound great! It came form the factory pretty well setup so I haven't done any tweaks to the setup. The low string is currently setup for an F# below a 7-string's B, but I played around with drop E and it held tuning and intonation okay. However with the hardtail bridge and extended scale length a number of alternate tunings are possible. This will sell quickly, so come check it out today! Call (316) 737.SevenSevenTwoTwo or respond via the above email to setup a time to check it out! Thanks for looking!
An unbelievably full sound built for crushing rhythms and blistering leads.
The Schecter Omen-8 Electric Guitar offers an unbelievable range of notes for the modern guitarist. Equipped with two additional strings below the standard low-E, the Omen-8 adds a whole new dimension to your playing.
Maple neck and basswood body
Maple has a uniform grain, it's strong and stable, and it has less reaction form enviromental 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 wich complements the warm tones of a basswood body.
The most common fretboard, rosewood is naturually 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.
Schecter Diamond Plus pickups
Over wound coils with a ceramic magnet give this agressive high output pickup the push that will send your amp over the edge. Made for crunchy rhythms and blistering leads, and perfect for drop tunings. This pickup will cut through the mix with ease.
