My very first electric guitar was a Floyd Rose guitar. I play with a few bands and having a floating bridge guitar back then was very inconvenient as it's a pain to switch between different tuning. That alone pretty much got me hunting for a new fixed bridge guitar.
The first thing i noticed when i picked up a Schecter Omen 6 Extreme, was it's low-action and that was an immediate plus point. I usually play with custom light strings at 0.09 but with this guitar, i can do with a 0.10.
The second thing i noticed was the built of the neck. It feels comfortable gripping it. The body is made of mahogany so this guitar is pretty heavy.
The guitar comes with a push/pull tone switch. In pushed state, the guitars' pickups function as 2 humbucking pickups. This gives a full and heavy sound. Turn on distortions and you'll get a very clean and crunchy sound and this is great for metal, punk rock styles.
In pulled state, the 2 pickup functions as single coil. I didn't like the sound of this setup. The pickup seems pretty weak at this state and you'll have to crack up the volume higher to properly hear it. Generally i leave it in the pushed state and almost never bother to switch to the pulled state.
But what i ABSOLUTELY ABSOLUTELY LOVE about this guitar is the sustain. This probably has something to do with the way the strings are strung through the body at the bridge section but OMFFGG!!! i really didn't expect it to have such beautiful sustain!!!
The Guitar built is pretty solid. The neck is bolted on to the body and there are no loose parts; perfect for gigs. I got the trans ocean blue color and absolutely love the finishing.

This guitar satisfied all my criteria. It's a very versatile guitar perfect for guitarist who plays multiple different styles. I absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile, great sounding, low action guitar
