    I have the Schecter stiletto Deluxe V and also the TRBX305 which I bought at the same time. I think the Omen 5 is a little similar to my Schecter in many ways so hopefully this will help.
    My Schecter's low B string is far less floppy being a 35" scale, lighter in weight, neck is slimmer. Less string spacing if that's a consideration. The TRBX305 is sturdier, built like a tank, neck width is wider. In terms of sound, the Schecter seems to have a little more tonal range, more mid/treble- the TRBX305 has less clarity (sounds a little muddier), but capable of a deeper boomy bass sound.
    You can see the difference in neck width and string spacing in this picture of the two basses.
