  • Specs

The Omen 6 has a basswood body, a bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, a 25.5 inch scale, 24 jumbo frets, dot inlays, a tune-o-matic bridge with the strings going through the body, Schecter diamond plus pickups, and black hardware.

  • Sound

The guitar’s tone leans toward the warmer side, which adds a reasonable amount of low end to the sound. This being said, the tone adds a smoothness to soloing and accentuates low-tuned riffs. The pickups on this guitar are good enough for the price; they’re not specialized to achieve specific tones, so beginners would find them great for experimenting with a variety of styles. More advanced players would probably swap them for different ones.

  • Feel and Finish

The guitar has a thin unfinished neck, and a rosewood fretboard with jumbo frets; these features appeal to a lot of guitar players. The body has a satin walnut finish, which seems durable against scratches.

This guitar can be found at Instruments Garage for $450.
