Beautiful Omega! I don't think that the Omega got a very good showing however, guitar didn't sound very good nor was it demo'd thoroughly enough. Maybe he was rushed to get it done? Did a great job on the bass though!

It's really tough to decipher tone on the NAMM floor with the noise policies and volume levels allowed. The Omegas sounds great and are getting stellar reviews from artists and owners. We picked up 4 endorsements last month on the Omegas and will be adding 2 more on the rock/metal side. Vintage Guitars and Premier Guitar will be publishing formal reviews before year-end. Stay tuned.......

8) I must agree that these are a must see in person. The videos are nice but once you can put one in your hands and hear and play it you will be amazed at the playability and quality of these new models. I was fortunate enough to get a hands on at the Electrafest this year and it blew my mind. These live up to an surpass the legacy of our beloved Electras. Ben and company have done a superb job of bringing these up to modern standards of performance but kept the quality and feel we all like. I think that these will be a force in the future and I know my egas for the new models is at fever pitch. Check these models out if you get the chance and when I get one of these beauties I will try to put a video together. Congrats to Ben and Company on a great Instrument. :up: :up:

Great to hear your new endorsements! I have no doubt that they sound and feel great, seems to be a wonderful job done.

To put a bug in your ear... how about adding a pointy guitar to your line up... maybe a "V" shape like the Electra/Westone Dynasty? Like the one in my forum avatar. Would help get your hard rock or metal endorsements I'd think. And I'd buy one, too. :hyper:

More endorsements - very cool.

I would agree on the lack of good audio fidelity from a video.

The bass did have a really good sound though - good job Nick;

And I'm sure that Ben could crank it up and shred if necessary -

The quality of the new Electra guitars already lives up to the brand.

Thanks to Ben and company.

Just saw a pair of white and black Omegas in heavy use this weekend due to one of those endorsements being Chris Demakes of Less Than Jake and me seeing them three days in a row. Aside from having an awesome sound to my ears, he describes them as the best guitars he's ever played, and says they're a bit warmer than LPs in tone but still nice and clean. :D
