    Hello everybody!
    I wanna buy my 1st 7strings guitar, and I've chosen the Schecter Omen 7.
     
    Now I just gotta choose what model.
    I see that there's a new model, the Omen 7 Extreme.
    It costs 40€ more then the previous model, and I'm guessing if it's worth it.
    What are the differences between the 2 guitars besides the wood?
     
    Thanks!

    I think the extreme 7 has a coil tap in the tone pot. So that adds a little more versatility for clean stuff. Also it has a longer scale length 26.5 which is better for lower tuning and it doesn't sharp as easily when you pick hard.

    It depends how old each respective model is. Older regular Omens came with a coil tap for a number of years. Also they lacked binding, which the new ones have. All of them will be 26.5", even if you got a really old one without the ToM or current headstock design AFAIK.

    If you mean solely new models, the difference is just the mahogany versus basswood body, coil tap, and the inlays.

    I've tried both side by side, and own the Extreme. It feels better in quality, sounds better unplugged, has that coil tap, and of course it looks hotter :D

    The important thing here is that it feels and sounds better though. The omen-7 felt really cheap. neck and all. And it just didn't respond that well. I'm sure it would sound alright to anyone not playing it, but there's a definite difference to the player.

    I bought the guitar and it is really nice, but i want to change the pick up at the bridge. What pick up can I buy? I saw the di marzio evolution, but probably there is a better one! Thank you!
