Schecter Omen 006

My buddy Nik brought over his Schecter Omen tonight for me to set up. What a great guitar. For around $300 I can't believe how good this thing is.

It was a simple setup with a truss rod adjustment and lowering the action on the Tune-O-Matic bridge. It plays great, like a true shred guitar. When Nik bought it a while back I gave him some pickups that came on my Ibanez RG1570 that I didn't particularly like. When we put them in his guitar, though, they ended up sounding fantastic. I think it is due to the mahogany body of the Schecter vs. the basswood body of my RG. Those pickups just seem better suited to the darker tonal qualities of mahogany.

For the price point, this guitar is hard to beat.
