A devastating weapon of rock.
The Schecter Blackjack ATX V-1 electric guitar is a heavy hitter and the perfect tool for laying down a deep crunch or a crystal-clear solo. Schecter knows that for fretboard access, playing comfort, and downright coolness, it's hard to beat a winging V.
Set-neck construction and string-thru bridge enhance the resonance and sustain of its mahogany body, and the 25-1/2" scale plus Seymour Duncan active Blackouts humbuckers give it a strong, crushing tone. The 3-way switch gives you tons of tonal flexibility. Heavy string tension lets you really dig in. The Blackjack ATX's sleek finish and black chrome hardware are accented by gray pearl binding, and the active symbol inlay at the 12th fret. Killer looks, tone, and the kind of construction that handles the metal domain, gig after gig.

I normally don't like Schecters all that much, they're usually not what they're worth. Not that they're bad guitars, dont get me wrong. I just think that they're too expensive for what you get. While this is rather pricey, it's nearly worth it. I love the active Duncans, they are little monsters. And I am quite fond of the vintage black finish. Also, this is a very comfortable and well playing guitar. The only thing that bugs me is the upper wing is a little shorter, so the shape seems backwards. But all in all this is a great guitar. Could be cheaper but it is what it is.
I have owned this piece of equipment for nearly a year and a half. Its held up with me through one tour and never had an issue out of it. Even took it to the studio and recorded out of it (cleans and heavy distortion). It sounded beautiful, almost surreal. Running this through my Peavey 6505+ head...= pure bliss. Try this guitar out if you play high gain with some intense crunch.
For the price of this guitar, you get all you need and more: great pickups, wonderful craftsmanship, amazing tuning system...I play heavy metal and this is by far the best guitar I've ever owned or even played for that matter. I strongly recommend this guitar for anybody looking for a serious metal machine.
So u can get tons of other guitars out there that come with EMG pickups and a V body that are 10 times better than this.
I picked this up at the local shop the other day and was completly blown away. Keep in mind I am a die-hard Gibson man, but the Shecter ATX v was amazing. It had a perfect neck, (thin but with substance) and the Blackouts are unreal. I definatly recomend this guitar!
