Schecter Omen Extreme-7; an awesome 7 string guitar that is loaded with features. Seen here in a fantastic Black Cherry finish which really shows off the glorious Quilted Maple arched top, the Omen Extreme-7 is great looking and great sounding; a perfect guitar for the modern metal or hard rock guitarist.
7-String Guitar for The Modern Guitarist
When designing the Omen Extreme-7, Schecter wanted to make sure that this guitar would just scream metal and hard rock; both through it’s incredible tone and awesome good looks, while being nicely playable so you’ll have no issues playing those fast and demanding pieces.
Making up the body of the Omen Extreme-7, Mahogany has been used, featuring Crème multi-ply binding which protects the edges of the guitar while also adding an extra touch of class and visual appeal.
Bolt-on construction sees the joining of a Maple neck to the body. It has a nicely playable thin ‘C’ profile and features 24 X-jumbo size frets.
The fretboard itself is made of Rosewood and features awesome looking Vector shaped inlays made of abalone and pearloid.
A Tune-O-Matic bridge with a string through body design keeps your strings perfectly aligned and the action easily adjustable while at the top of the neck, you’ll find Schecter have installed a Graph Tech XL Black TUSQ nut.
TUSQ is a marvellous material that is precision engineered under high heat and pressure to enhance the frequencies that remain in the guitar strings, resulting in fantastic sustain. It is also permanently lubricated so you don’t have to worry about future touch ups.
For a further boost to the incredible aesthetic of the Omen Extreme-7, the top is a carved arched top of Quilted Maple which shows through the Black Cherry finish gorgeously.
Of course, when it comes to Schecter and as beautiful as the Omen Extreme-7 may be; it’s not just about the visual presence. Giving the Omen Extreme-7 its incredible, hard rock sound are two Schecter Diamond Plus pickups.
Found in both the bridge and neck pickup positions, Schecter Diamond Plus pickups are high quality humbucker style pickups which accurately reproduce your playing style and the tone of your strings while eliminating hum and interference so you get a pure tone.
A three-way pickup selector switch allows you to toggle between the pickups; the neck pick up, the bridge pickup or a combination of both.
Two metal knurled volume knobs allow you to adjust the overall volume from each of the pickups while a Push-Pull knob allows you to customise the tone.
Great Sound, Matching Looks
With its classic style body, mixed with the Quilted Maple arched top and See-Thru Black finish – the Omen Extreme-7 is brilliant to look at. Add in the Diamond Plus humbuckers and you’ve got an awesome sound to match!
All around, this is one formidable guitar that makes a statement on any stage.
