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

Worth more than the price tag

What is your opinion of this product?
Well made axe and great sound. Takes a little getting used to at first because of the string spacing. Most chords on the f sharp string and b string are identical. Had to raise the action a little but no biggie. I recommend this guitar for any first time buyers that want the challenge of the extra low strings.

Unexpectedly High Quality
What is your opinion of this product?
I gotta say, this guitar's build quality is superb. It is so so so much more than expected and beat the hell out of most of the guitars I played worth thousands in terms of build quality. Especially the neck. Love the neck. The tuning machines are alright but I would recommend a better gear ratio for the lower two strings at least. I gave mine some spare 18-1 locking tuners I had laying around and it did wonders for tuning stability. Tonally, it's alright. I found that the pickups are muddy as all getout when tuning to 8 string standard but EQ can clear up a lot of that if you're patient. That being said I switched it up and tuned it to 7 string G# standard/drop F# with a high F# fer funnies and it came to life, it sounds incredible now somehow. No mud anywhereand I dunno why that is but will not argue. If they woulda put in some quality PUs in this would compare to guitars double or triple the price easily. Buy it guys, this one is a great start into 8strings and much nicer than the Ibanez RG8 I promise! It's also a monster modding platform given the exceptional build so if you like to tinker this is a good one for that too! WORTH IT!

Great guitar!!
Your general opinion of this product.
Great guitar but weak, muddy pickups, especially on the fat string. I installed a Dimarzio 8 string bridge pickup and what a difference!! Soon I will do the neck. I play the shnitzle outta this thing( a la Cannibal Corpse, Behemeth style) and it keeps in tune very well.
