Overview

The Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX Solo-II Electric Guitar is fully-equipped. It comes with a mahogany body and set 3-piece mahogany neck. The fretboard is smooth ebony with 24 extra-jumbo frets and glow-in-the-dark side dots. Active Seymour Duncan pickups produce plenty of tone control and power. Black chrome hardware and a TonePros tune-o-matic bridge complete the list of appointments.

Schecter locking tuners
Schecter Locking Tuners feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable knobs, threaded peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peg hole.

Ebony fretboard
Ebony has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of Maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than Maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long, sustain

Seymour Duncan Active Blackouts AHB-1
9-volt active humbucker for aggressive playing styles. Recommended for old school metal, garage, punk, thrash, drop tunings, and other heavy rock styles. Capturing the tone that players want in an active design using balanced inputs. The result is 12dB to 14dB less noise, plus more lows, more highs, and more output.

3-pc mahogany neck
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX Solo-II Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is awesome for metal players, sustainability is great. the tone is a beast. The pickups are killer. feels great makes u wanna shred overtime u pick it up. can't find any problem except that volume knobs are reversed, front knob is for bridge pickup and middle knob is for neck pickup confusing at first but you get use to it.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX Solo-II Electric Guitar:

      Pros: This guitar plays and feels like a guitar that should cost well over a grand. Very solid quality. Frets are finished nicely. No nut issues (solid Graph Tech XL Black Tusq). Hardware is top notch (Schecter locking tuners and TonePros bridge work great). The satin finish is very nice - the red stain lets the wood grain come through which looks mint. The upper fret access is outstanding, Schecter did a great job designing their setneck heal cutaway.

      Cons: The cons for this guitar are mostly those inherent with a "LP" style guitar - which is to say they are somewhat subjective. 1.) The body on the red color model is ash wood which is considered a relatively lightweight wood but this guitar has some weight to it. I'd say it weights about as much as my '97 PRS CE22 (mahogany body) and definitely more than my Fender American Stratocaster (alder body). It isn't overly heavy but don't assume the ash body will be considerably light weight. 2.) The next "LP" issue is the headstock. Fortunately Schecter isn't dumb enough to use a 17" angle on their headstocks (*cough* Gibson). The issue lies with the layout of the tuning machines. 3x3 tuners that are too parallel have tuning issues with the inner strings (the "D" & "G") due to the break angle of the string and tension at the nut. The Schecter Locking tuners help a great deal with tuning stability though. Look at a PRS for proper layout. Strings want to go straight, not take angles. This is not a make or break issue but something to keep in mind with all LP style guitars - make sure to look at that headstock. 3.) The last "LP" issue is the lack of a belly cut/contour on the back of the body but it's not uncomfortable. The last "con" is really more of an opinion. The Seymour Duncan Blackouts. If you like actives, you'll probably love 'em. They sound great to me and I'm new to actives. Hot output but still capable of very nice clean tones. Surprisingly nice midrange. Clear and not muddy. Not a fan of batteries though.
