REVIEW: Schecter Omen Extreme 6

SchecterSchecter hits a lot of different price points across their combined output, from beginner axes under the SGR banner right through to the primo USA Production and Custom Shop stuff (like the Prince ‘cloud’ and ‘love symbol’ guitars displayed at NAMM this year – did you see those things?!?). The Omen Extreme 6 is not from Schecter’s most budget-priced line, but it’s down at the more affordable end of the scale. The Omen Extreme 6 has a mahogany body with a bound quilted maple top, through-body stringing over a tune-o-matic-style adjustable bridge, and a bolt-on maple neck with rosewood fretboard.

Impermanent ResonanceQuick! Zip over to the Revolver website and check out the stream of James LaBrie’s new solo album, Impermanent Resonance! It’s only available for 24 hours by visiting this link. This is a really great album. You can read my review of it here. I really can’t recommend it highly enough, and I guess that as long as this stream is active, I don’t have to: you can just go and check it out for yourself. And then, when you’re ready to buy it, it’s available now via InsideOut Music. LaBrie says of the album, “To me, this album incorporates and continues with the styles and musical direction that we have created with the previous releases. The difference being that the music on this disc is to me a true telling of the songs evolving and taking on a sense of identity that is every band’s ultimate goal. It is powerful, memorable, hook-driven and above all extremely musical. It shows how the writing and the band itself have matured. I truly feel that this is our quintessential album.”
