Hi guys!

I need your opinion about buying guitar.
I want to buy Schecter OMEN EXTREME 6 FR or C1-FR with tommy iommi hum and godlen hum.
I play rock/metal.
What do you say about these two guitars? Which one is better?
do you recommend any other with tremolo?

Thanks.

Schecter makes great guitars, in this case it depends on what you want. The Omen is cheaper, but has a cheaper construction (bolt on) while the Hellraiser is set. To alot of people this alone is a deal maker/breaker.

any guitar used for rock/metal with a bolt on is a deal-breaker for me. Also do you really need the floyd rose?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

A bolt on is a neck that's held to the body by screws, while a set neck is a neck that's glued to the body. Think Strats vs Les Pauls.

I don't mind either, really. But are you sure you want a Floyd? I mean, is this your first electric guitar? Because if it is, you might wanna get one with a normal floating trem first. Floyds will either make you better at set up (if you follow the Floyd guide here), or it will kill your guitar when poorly setup.

I'm guessing it's a humbucker with a gold-plated cover.

It's not my first electric guitar. I play guitar more then 2 years. I will not setup it. I have a few friends who know a lot about guitars, they will setup it for me.
#8
for someone playing 2 years i would strongly discourage getting a guitar with a floyd. i bought my first floyd 3 years into my playing and i was convinced it would be great and that i would use it a lot etc. Granted i use it a bit, but it was the purchase i regret the most. I plan on selling that guitar at some point actually. I don't care to learn how to properly set one up myself and its been unused for years and years. I have never bought a floyd since and i don't plan on buying one again any time soon.

Floyd Rose = Pain in the ass to change tunings. It's okay if you stick to just one guitar tuning though.

The C1 is a nicer guitar but it costs more. Both are decent. I have a hellraiser C1 without the floyd and it's great.

vayne92,
I know what i want:p
I play guitar up to 3 hours per day.

I think that I will stay in normal tuning :p

This is a worrisome thing to say my friend, because when the day comes that you change tunings on it (which you will because you play rock/metal) you'll not have fun and you'll wonder.. "was that s1ck divebomb open E drop really worth it"?
Up to you though, I would just discourage it because myself and many other guitarists i know have gone through the same thing.

He already told you three times he wants a Floyd. Give it a break..

^ +1. He also claimed bolt-ons weren't as good for metal, which is a subjective opinion at best (if you ask me, it's flat-out wrong).

if he has other hardtail guitars and is willing to use them for altered tunings, and is willing to learn to set up a floyd (or let his friends do it- i'd caution though that claiming you know a lot about guitars is not the same as actually knowing, we get tons of threads in here about things "friends" said and often they're full of it), i don't see a problem as long as it's a good floyd.

make sure you get a guitar with a good floyd, then- original floyd rose/floyd rose original, schaller, gotoh. The floyd rose FRT-x000 (the korean-made version of the OFR) is about as low as I'd want to go, personally.
