With its bewitching burl top and hair-raising Heretic pickups, the Schecter Omen Elite-6 FR is one guitar 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, and we feel the Omen Elite FR 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, a mean-sounding set of hot-rodded Heretic pickups, and a double-locking Floyd Rose trem, and this Elite is one Omen that’s too good to pass up.
Poplar burl top
One of the Omen Elite-6 FR’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-6 FR’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-6 FR ups the ante over the original Omen-6 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.
Double-locking Floyd Rose trem
The Omen Elite-6 FR is your key to tuning-stable scoops, squeals, and dives, thanks to Schecter’s exclusive double-locking Floyd Rose Special Hot Rod onboard trem system. Floyd Rose has long been one of the best double-locking tremolo suppliers. And with the Hot Rod, the Omen Elite-6 FR gives you the expression you need to cover tons of sonic territory.
Quality black hardware
Apart from its clear speed knobs, the Omen Elite-6 FR is murdered out head to toe in black hardware for a distinctive stage look. Looking for a guitar that makes an entrance? You’ll want to check out the Schecter Omen Elite-6 FR.
