The limited edition Schecter Blackjack ATX Solo-6 Electric Guitar gives you all the dark tones and sustain you expect from a carved mahogany body and 25-1/2" scale 3-piece mahogany neck. The Schecter Ultra-access neck joint gives you access to the fast 24-fret ebony fingerboard. The ATX Solo-6 is loaded with Seymour Duncan Active Blackout humbuckers with balanced inputs and a differential preamp for reduced noise. They're voiced for heavy rock with greater dynamic range, less scooped mids, and less compression than other active pickups. Other attributes of this limited edition Schecter Blackjack guitar include an active symbol fingerboard inlay at the 12th fret, aged multi-ply binding, black chrome hardware, locking tuners, and a TonePros bridge system with a string-thru design.

A guitar that probably should be well over the thousand dollar mark, the ATX solo 6 is a monster. Easy pinch harmonics (esp in the trebble section). The exaggerated cut away gives great access to the higher frets. I got the flat black model and I really, really like it. The locking tuners are a huge help too. I love Gibsons, and I have no clue why they don't offer such a necessary feature. I play a Les Paul and one big bend will through that string out of tune. Hard rock and metal players will find a new favorite when they try the ATX solo 6 out.
I bought this guitar a few weeks ago at my local Guitar Center. My primary guitars were an Ibanez RG and a Les Paul, and I was looking for something that was a cross between the two. This guitar has completely exceeded my expectations. The Duncan Blackouts are the ideal pickup for a thrash/heavy metal player, and I was surprised to see them come stock. The locking tuners are great for someone who wants the tuning stability of a locking tremolo system, without the hassle of the tremolo itself. The finish is gorgeous in person, and the binding is a feature you'd expect to cost a lot more. The tone through the bridge pickup is crushing. My only complaint about the guitar is that the clean tone isn't as smooth as I'd like it to be, but you can't expect much from a pickup thats purely designed for metal riffing. Overall, the craftsmanship is outrageous, the playability is fantastic, and I am proud to own this guitar. If you're in need of a heavy metal work-horse, this guitar is a smart choice.
my friend has one of these in white. ive played it many times and i cant get enough of it. its gorgeous at first glance and gets even better the closer you look. only one fret inlay? no problem at all! the ebony fretboard looks great and plays great as well. the active bolt inlay is cool too. and the sound.... ohhh the sound.. cant even explain. he has it set to drop c now and its fantastic, he bought it and played its first set of strings in drop d and it was fantastic then too. and it has a coil tap, and the famous schecter set neck with ultra access. schecter has a great reputation for its products and this guitar has only made it better
This guitar has cosmetic features that would cost far more on guitars from other brands, such as the binding. As far as hardware goes, I felt the blackouts were a great touch, hard to find those stock in a guitar, and they're great. They're more versatile then EMG's, and less compressed which gives them more dynamic tone. The grovers stay in tune through lots of playing and heavy hitting. The construction is very solid,the neck joint is perfect, it's easy to get to the higher frets. The body is mahogany and so is the neck, so it's very balanced in weight, and the tone is very warm which is perfect for all kinds of rock. The controls are placed nicely, and if you need to flick the toggle switch while you're playing and you're having a tough time, you can always loosen it, turn it side ways, and tighten it again so it goes towards the head for neck and towards the bridge for the bridge pick up and then you can switch it with your forearm. All in all, this is a sick guitar that can cover a lot of musical styles, but I'd only use it for rock.
great great action and weight distribution but very..... VERY hard on the eyes... it's hideous BUT looks should not count for everything great action and tone pick ups sound fairly good
Schecter has been a leader in making instruments for working musicians since they broke out on the scene. The Solo-6 ATX is no exception. They blend quality American components with solid import craftsmanship with demanding quality control. If you're looking for a single cut that has a scorching metal tone, then you've found it. The playability on these is monstrous if you don't mind a neck with a little heft to it (fact: thin necks don't make you play any faster or better). For the money you'll be hard pressed to find a guitar with the same features and build quality, easily on par with the Japanese Jacksons.
A good friend of mine owns this guitar. I will have one of my own soon. The neck feels great. Very fast & smooth. The pickups are excellent. So much power & sustain. Definatley 5 stars.
i have this in black it feels great i love the neck and the pick ups are great with any amp. its great for rock and it has a very good distinct tone that the pick ups give it the locking tuners are great for keeping the tune i have no problems with this guitar its a little heavy but when you plug it in it wont matter it is a all around guitar you wont regret buying this guitar it is simply a work of art
