Maple-topped mahogany body

Shred-supporting 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-6 FR is spec'd to support technical styles of playing. From heel to headstock, its thin "C" maple neck profile feels right in the hand. And whether you're sweep picking or alternate picking those arpeggios, its 14-inch-radius rosewood fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets go a long way in preventing buzzes, fret outs, and hand cramps.
Coil-split Diamond Plus pickups
From brutalizing crunch to crystalline cleans, the Omen Extreme-6 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.
