I'm currently looking at getting the Schecter Omen 6. I don't know whether to get one with a floyd or one with a fixed bridge. My budget is $400 but I might be able to push it to $500 if I sell my wah pedal or my old guitar.

I can't find an image of one with a Floyd rose.



Specs:
# Construction / Scale: Bolt-on /25.5”
# Body: Basswood
# Neck: Maple
# Fingerboard: Rosewood
# Bridge: TOM w/Thru-body
# Pickups: Diamond Plus
# Finishes: Walnut Satin, Black Satin, Electric Blue, White


Floyd Rose Model:
o Pickups: 2 Schecter High Output Alnico humbuckers
o Bridge: Licensed Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo
o Finishes: Black

With floyd is $500 and without is $400. Which one should I get and what finish do you think looks best?
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

If you want a FR, then get it, I find mine really useful, only problem I find is they take a little while to string up, and you can't drop tune as easily. And there's nothing wrong with liscensed FR's, but it depends on the brand really.

Edit: Buy the C-1 FR instead, definatly.

get it...far superior

No one understands the failness of the Australian dollar. That C1-FR would cost about $700-800 for me.

Last I checked 1 AUD is 63 US cents. I'd much rather just deal with a place in Australia where I can get it quickly and no waiting for shipping.

gotcha..
i still would recommend saving a bit more..esp at those rates mate!
like if you work, its a quick fix, but if not, i can understand the need to buy a new guitar!!

you could always do the quick money earner..get a motorbike, insure it and get hit by a car..
worked for me..still injured a year later..but got money

but im not waiting 2 months for a guitar to get shipped to me.

I see most of you didn't notice, but my main question was is it worth trading in my Vox wah or Squier to get the FR? I sent in an Email asking how much I would get for the Squier.

if you solo alot and like to throw alot of extra flair into your playing, get the FR

if you're basically just a rhythm guitarist and play pretty straightforward, dont get the FR

i don't know anything about schecters, but i love FR's cuz its fun just to mess around with and it really adds stuff to your music. i think it would be worth getting

Australia is teh failz for buying musical equipment, it totally sucks.

I say get the one without the FR, unless you end up getting a C1 or something.

hey your in perth, me 2.. i got the one with floyd rose a few months back from billy hyde... yeah it's fine, stays in tune pretty well.... could use some diff pups for a heavier tone but it's not a bad guitar.
