If you've been searching for a show-ready machine that plays right, sounds great, and doesn't break the bank, the Schecter 2006 Guitar Research Omen Extreme-6 FR Electric Guitar Black Cherry checks all the right boxes. Its Thin "C" maple neck with a 14-inch radius fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets lay the foundation for fast runs and finger tapping. It's joined with a mahogany body and maple veneer whose deep gloss finish and multi-ply crème binding give this axe tons of presence under stage lights.
Sonically, the Omen Extreme FR's capable Diamond Plus humbuckers with push-pull coil splits give you six pickup sounds for claiming your space in a mix. This FR model of the Omen Extreme features a Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo system that'll have you (and your guitar) squealing with delight. On the hardware side of things, you also get matching knobs and tuners to help you look and sound your best in any performance setting. Beginner to intermediate, if you're looking for a springboard into technical and aggressive styles of playing, Sweetwater guitar players recommend the Omen Extreme FR.
Maple-topped mahogany body
A tried-and-trued body pairing of figured maple on rich mahogany gives the Schecter Omen Extreme FR its premium visuals and tonal core. Crème multi-ply binding that extends from the body all the way up the neck into the headstock gives this guitar a look that's unmatched by its peers.
Supersonic neck, frets, and fingerboard
Neck feel is where the rubber meets the road for many guitarists. We're pleased to report that the Schecter Omen Extreme FR is spec'd to support technical styles of playing. Its Thin "C" maple neck profile feels right in the hand from heel to headstock. And whether you're sweep-picking or arpeggiating, its 14-inch-radius fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets go a long way in preventing buzzes, fret-outs, and hand cramps.
Coil-splittable Diamond Plus pickups
Whether you need brutalizing crunch or silky-smooth cleans, the Omen Extreme FR has you covered. Its Diamond Plus humbucking pickups have tone and flexibility to go with the distance with you, stage to studio. Coil splitting is activated by a simple push-pull mechanism on the tone pot. Together with its 3-way selector, the Omen Extreme FR gives you a total of six distinct pickup combinations for interacting with your music, fusion to blues, rock to metal.
Genuine Floyd Rose Special tailpiece
Schecter didn't give the Omen Extreme FR just any old tremolo, they went for the real deal: a Floyd Rose Special. The Floyd Rose Special is an authentic Floyd Rose design, which gives you the same design as an original vintage model, plus the advantage of lightweight zinc alloy components. Thanks to its double-locking design, you can dive, whammy, and flutter all night with this trem.
