Features: The Schecter Omen 6 is quite possibly among the best guitars you can get in the price range, especially if you're looking to play any form of Rock. The Omen comes with a 25.5" bolt-on neck, with a Basswood body, maple/rosewood fretboard, and dot inlays. There is 1 volume knob, 1 tone knob, and a 3-way pickup switch. The pickups are the Standard Schecter Diamond Series humbuckers, and the tuners are also Standard. This guitar is available in gloss black with chrome hardware, Metallic Blue with chrome hardware, and Walnut Satin with black hardware. The bridge is a Tune-O-Matic with a thru-body, allowing a great deal of sustain, and enabling the guitar to stay in tune for longer periods of time. All of the essentials needed for a decent guitar are here, though it would be nice if you could choose from different bridges, like a Floyd Rose. // 8

Sound: As for the sound, it's capable of some pretty good tones surprisingly. This guitar can easily handle anything from Blues to Death Metal. Eventually, you probably will want to upgrade the pickups, but the stock pickups are great for what they are. The pickups can be a little noisy, but only at maximum gain levels. I wouldn't let this get in the way of purchasing it. // 9

Action, Fit & Finish: The finish is basic, but nice. I got the Metallic Blue version. Smudges appear at a moderate level. Not too much, but not perfectly clean either. The neck however, annoys me. This is a personal preference, but for me, I find the neck to be much too small. Too small as in it's not wide enough across for my liking, and I don't have big hands either. The knobs, Switch, and the strap buttons are perfectly held in place, so no worries about that. // 7

Reliability & Durability: This guitar is definitely gig worthy. Sounds nice, strap buttons are solid, it takes a while before it goes out of tune, and I've banged it against things multiple times and there are no chips or warping anywhere on the guitar. I would have a backup guitar with me though, primarily because I don't trust guitar strings. // 10

Impression: This is a very nice guitar for players of all ages and skill levels that don't want to fork over a ton of money on a guitar. This guitar is built to last, and possibly the best you can get in this price range. If it were lost or stolen though, I wouldn't get another one of these. Mainly because by then, I'd want to upgrade to something better anyway. // 8

Overall Rating: 8.4 out of 10
