Schecter Omen-8 Walnut Satin 8-String Electric Guitar
The Schecter Omen-8 Electric Guitar offers an unbelievable range of notes for the modern guitarist. Equipped with two additional strings below the standard low-E, the Omen-8 adds a whole new dimension to your playing. 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 which complements the warm tones of a basswood body.
The most common fretboard, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is fundamentally richer than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores. 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, and perfect for drop tunings. This pickup will cut through the mix with ease. 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. Case sold separately.
