Schecter Omen Elite 7 MS in Charcoal
Fully Optimized for 7-string Performance
From the neck to the pickups to the scale length, the Schecter Omen Elite-7 Multiscale electric guitar is an axe designed to fully harness its 7-string potential! The core of this instrument is its 25.5–27-inch scale length, allowing for even the lowest drop-tuned chug with ideal string tension and intonation across the entire fingerboard. On the skinny side, the Omen Elite-7’s fast thin “C” profile is all but guaranteed to up your speed, while the rosewood fingerboard’s 24 jumbo frets and flat 16-inch radius are perfect for modern metal technicality. Finally, the gorgeous burl-topped mahogany body is loaded with two of Schecter’s Diamond Heretic humbuckers, a pair of pickups fully optimized for brutal 7-string riffage, cutting lead tones, and sparkling cleans with endless articulation.
Harness your full range
Sure, you can tune your favorite 6-string (or standard-scale 7-string, for that matter) down to the low B or A range. However, any player who values precision in their setup will quickly discover that this can lead to weak, floppy strings — there’s a reason why basses have such a long scale length! A multi-scale neck is an ideal remedy for this situation, lengthening the string’s travel to increase tension and improve intonation. Moreover, this guitar's 25.5–27-inch design retains a typical scale length on the high strings, keeping their playability and feel identical to a standard guitar.
A neck built for speed
While we love the old-school chunk of a baseball bat neck as much as the next guitarist, if you’re after speed, nothing beats the lightning-fast playability of Schecter’s thin “C” maple neck profile! Plus, while its diminished size certainly reduces drag and improves speed, this is by no means a “toothpick” neck — Schecter was careful to leave just enough mass to provide a slick feel while still filling out the palm of your hand. The rosewood fingerboard’s 24 jumbo frets and very flat 16-inch recipe take the formula even further, allowing for effortless bends and incredibly low action with no string choke out.
Tone that cuts like a diamond
When you’re wielding a 7-string, it’s crucial to have a set of pickups that take full advantage of your instrument’s extended range. Fortunately for fans of high-gain chug everywhere, Schecter has optimized their Diamond Heretic humbuckers to provide unmatched clarity and articulation across the fingerboard, from the lowest drop-tuned 7th string to the piercing high E on the 24th fret! They djent, they sing with sustain, and they produce a wonderfully rich and full-range clean tone when it comes time to dial down the gain — Sweetwater’s 7-string fanatics can’t help but be impressed by the sheer sonic might and tonal flexibility of Schecter’s Diamond Heretic humbuckers!
