Schecter Omen Elite 7 in Charcoal
A Spellbinding Addition to The Omen Lineup
With its bewitching burl top and hair-raising Heretic pickups, the Schecter Omen Elite-7 is one seven-string you won't be able to keep your hands off for long. The Omen series has been a longstanding favorite to players and customers here at Sweetwater, and we feel the Omen Elite-7 marks a notable upgrade in all the right directions. Back are the substantial-feeling mahogany-maple construction and streamlined electronics. But factor in a slew of visual upgrades, a fast-as-ever Thin "C" neck, and mean-sounding set of hot-rodded Heretic pickups, and this Elite is one Omen that's too good to pass up.
Poplar Burl Top
One of the Omen Elite-7's standout features has to be its deeply figured poplar burl top. As a tonewood, poplar — a common alder alternative — is known for its light weight, resonant qualities, and meaty tone. And combined with its compelling visual figuring and rich mahogany complement, it's a solid foundation for stage metal to arena rock.
Rust Grey Black Body/Neck Backing
Not only does the Omen Elite-7's satin gray backing feel great on the hands and against the skin. But it really brings out the natural chestnut and auburn highlights in the mahogany and maple, for a one-of-a-kind visual treat on a wall or slung over the shoulder.
Schecter Heretic Pickups
The Omen Elite-7 ups the ante over the original Omen-7 with stock pickups that are ready for action. Clean, the Schecter Heretics give you punchy, compressed rhythm tones and fluid neo-prog lead sweetness. But crank up the gain, and the Heretics deliver a hefty crunch that holds its own against metal guitars costing twice as much.
Quality Black Hardware
Apart from its clear speed knobs, the Omen Elite-7 is murdered out head to toe in black hardware for a distinctive stage look.
