Plenty of access to the fretboard and built to last a lifetime with its special 3-piece mahogany set neck.
The mahogany-bodied Shecter Blackjack ATX C-1 features a three-piece mahogany set neck with Ultra Access so you can rock the entire fretboard easy. Other accoutrements include a pair of Seymour Duncan Active Blackouts AHB-1 pickups, TonePros tune-o-matic with thru-body bridge, voume and tone controls, a 3-way switch for your pickups, Schecter locking tuners and aged multi-ply binding. If you choose the Aged Black finish, the black hardware blends in smoothly while the aged white binding gives you a nice outline of this shapely guitar. If you chose the Aged White finish, the black hardware pops out more and you have a more nostalgic looking instrument. Either way you go, you're picking a winner.
3-Piece Mahogany Neck
Like all guitars in the Shechter Blackjack ATX series, the C-1 is made with three pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 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.
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.
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.
No need to go to Vegas to play Blackjack. Just order this guitar and you've got two winning hands.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX C-1 Electric Guitar:
The pic does no justice to the looks of this guitar. The color is more tobacco burst that does not quite get to black at the edges. The neck feels like a gun stock, in a good way. The pickups sound great clean or distorted. They sound about halfway between a passive Duncan and an EMG. They do everything better than EMG except that chunky metal thing. The locking turners are bigger than Grovers. The bridge is locked with Allen wrench nuts. the guitar I received was made in 2012 and shipped with Ernie Ball slinky 10's. Massive sustain, even if you don't plug it in.
