Such a basic question..
Do you plan on getting one of them?

If anything I would recommend saving up for a used Schecter Hellraiser or a Schecter Blackjack.

after my debacle with the ibanez i went to the local GC store and played the damien and the omen and liked them both. now i'm not the most experienced of players, but the only difference i saw in the two were the pickup type and a little more detail on the damien. same shape, same feel, same action and nearly the same sound. the damien did seem like it was a little clearer than the omen, but that may have been just me. you now how it is when you're in a place like that. there's a thousand people playing guitar and everything else and it's hard to make out what you're playing. i ended up with the omen and at first i wasn't sure if i made the right decision, but after spending about a week with it, i love it. they're both awesome, but it's all up to you really.

I have an 0men 6 with the schecter diamond pickups and i love it. I have a friend who had a Damien 6 and it was great to, but i personally don't like EMG's I think they are overrated and they sound gainy and cold and thin and i could go on and on but i won't I also think that MOST people that like EMG's are inexperienced guitarists that don't actually know what good tone is sorry i know that is harsh, but back on track I play in a band (an active band) we play at my youth group on Tuesday's and we do gigs like the 4th of July town green event and some other gigs and my omen sounds great. Now I also own other guitars such as a Les Paul, 3/4 size stratocaster (Fender not squire), a schecter 006 (a good one) and another Les Paul. but the quality of ANY schecter far surpasses the big names such as Gibson,Fender,PRS and the famous piece of junk Music man. but don't get me wrong I LOVE my fender stratocaster and my epiphone les paul prophecy , and they are the two best guitars, but schecter is the best for the money. hope i helped and maybe revived this thread.

I have an Omen Extreme. A very good solid guitar with a 'full' sound from the Schecter pickups.

It plays a lot like my higher priced Ibanez SZ 720....perhaps there is some crossover manufacturing. Both very well made guitars.

I've never played a 'Damien'.

I have an Omen 6. The style before the Extreme ones, and I love it. I'm not sure how they differ. It is a very versatile guitar, and I could get almost any sound I wanted from it. I can't say how it holds up against the Damien, but I have played Hellraisers. I would do as said above, and look around for a used Hellraiser.

the Damien and the Omen are the EXACT same thing except the Damien has passive EMG's that in my opinion sounds terrible as I stated clearly above, LOL. and my Omen witch has diamond pickups sounds better than my 006 with a genuine Seymour Dunkin distortion in it.

Lets me clear some basic info-

1. You say that the guitarists that use EMG's are inexperienced...so you are basically implying that James Hetfield, Kerry King, Zakk f****** Wylde and numerous other metal guitarists are inexperienced and they dont have *ANY KNOWLEDGE* about tone.

You sir are legendary

2. You mention that the damien 6 elite has PASSIVE EMG'S. Get your facts right man, EMG 81 and EMG 85 are ACTIVE PICKUPS...and the whole purpose of having active pickups is for the sound to have that extra crunch, GRAIN and gin...which obviously for some surreal reason doesnt satisfy your Beethoven'ic ears.

With your ears I suggest you buy an ibanez gio and rip riffs and solos on One DIrection songs because that would truly justify your playing style.

Damiens and Omens should play virtually the same, it's just a question of price difference and the better pickups and visual stuff you get for that money.

IMO, if you've got the money for a new Damien, go looking for a used Hellraiser or Blackjack. Why get a bolt-on when you can have their excellent set necks?

I prefer a Hellraiser over those two.

EDIT: Just noticed that this thread was made in 2010. Really dude?
