It looks legit, but that doesnít mean anything. For an Indian web site snapdeal.com seems pretty well designed and functional, Iím not sure if that means itís more of less likely to be a scam. So contact Schecter customer service and ask them if Snapdeal.com is a legit Schecter dealer. Also, assuming youíre Indian, ask around on Indian forums and see if Snapdeal.com is a legitimate seller in general.

The Omen Extreme is available with a floyd, and the electronics on that model are 2 knobs and a switch. I don't see the blue color offered, though.

Edit: This may be last year's model. Looks like they come with volume/volume/tone with tapping now.
Still can't figure out how they have a see thru blue color, though.

Yeah. Language barrier, maybe? Available means options in this case. You can get it with or without, like you said. I love my omen. It's not an extreme, but it's so nice to play. I say go for it.
