Schecter Diamond Plus - Omen 8Schecter Diamond Plus Omen 8
Over wound coils with a Ceramic Magnet give this aggressive high output pickup the push that will send your Amp over the edge. Made for crunchy rhythms and blistering leads. Perfect for drop tunings.
This pickup will cut through the mix with ease.

Rosewood FingerboardRosewood Fingerboard
The most common fingerboard, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

 SchecterTuners Schecter Tuners
These high quality tuners feature a classic design in a lubricated and sealed housing to protect gears for a lifetime of maintenance free playability. Details include a 15:1 gear ratio for smooth and precise tuning, removable knobs, threaded hex peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peg hole.

Maple NeckMaple Neck
Maple has a uniform grain, it’s strong and stable, and it has less reaction from environmental 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.

Schecter SGR1C Style Case
To protect and transport your guitar, Schecter recommends the optional SGR1C Style Electric Guitar Case (#SCE SGR1C).

It was a good omen for me to order the Schecter Omen 8!
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This guitar is simply fantastic overall. I was initially somewhat apprehensive about getting a guitar that is priced as an intermediate instrument. I must say without hesitation that I am VERY well-pleased.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, the instrument is great and will suffice for all my applications. I am truly taken aback by the overall quality of this guitar. I am very happy and excited to have it!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I play a wide and eclectic variety of styles, from jazz to metal to classical. I personally enjoy the many tones of the instrument. The basswood body and bolt-on maple neck with rosewood board offer good and nice clarity in conjunction with the pickups. I have to agree with other reviewers in that, while on a distortion setting, the B and F# strings tend to become ever so slightly dull and buried. Yet, the clean tones are astoundingly good in quality. I know this will work perfectly for jazz. The cleans are additionally reminiscent of the great cleans from Billy Corgan, Marty Friedman (think of his "Scenes" solo album 1992), and even George Benson and Paul Jackson Jr. I think the pickup output is more than sufficient for any application. For reference, I play a Mesa Boogie Studio Caliber DC-2 amplifier.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The matte walnut satin finish is clean and wonderful without any error. I love it. The black binding is a great touch and makes the instrument look even more expensive than it is. The frets are perfectly finished and polished.
