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 about Schecter's more affordable guitars is the hardware. Unable to source an affordable 8-string bridge that still delivered 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 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 substantial 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.
