Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack C-7 Electric Guitar:
Great guitar with quality parts and nice overall playability. I really like the Hipshot bridge over the usual tone pros tune-o-matic style on most Schecter C7 models. Although adjusting string height for each string individually was new to me. The neck is nice and thin and has a comfortable "D" shape even thought you can get a thinner neck on some of the other C7 models such as the sls, hellraiser hybrid, and signature models. The neck is kinda flat in the middle which I prefer. The Duncan Nasgul and Sentient pickups are the stars of the show for this model and have a very beefy tone but not overly powerful or shrill. I thought the bridge Nasgul pickup would be hotter, it is only about 16.5kohms. Which is not that hot for a seven string bridge pickup although it has great clarity when used with a hi-gain amp such as my Mesa Dual Rec. By comparison I have another 7-string guitar with a Duncan JB which is over 20kohms and has more high end sizzle than the Nasgul. The ebony fretboard is great and the jumbo frets are well dressed. I have no complaints about the playability of the neck or fretboard area. I do wish the dark red fret markers circles were brighter red so they were more visible. That goes for the dark red neck, body, and headstock binding also. It is hard to see from more than a few feet away. It would look better if it was more of a bright blood red like on the Gary Holt signature guitars. On this guitar the red is too subtle, although a bit more classy perhaps. The Schecter locking tuners are just OK. I prefer the Grover non-locking tuners on the older models. The locking mechanism on the Schecter tuners works fine. But the feel and accuracy of the Schecter tuners are somewhat lacking and not as stable as the Grovers. The nut is Graphtech black Tusq Xl the best in the business, enough said. Another thing that would make this axe better would be if it had a maple top. With these pickups being just slightly dark sounding this guitar could use the extra high end a maple top would give. Don't get me wrong, this guitar never sounds "muddy" it just could use that extra snap to the attack a maple top could bring. I don't like the sterile sound of the active EMGs that most 7-string guitar come stock with. So I highly reccomend this guitar particularly to those 7-string players who are looking for an axe with passive pickups. As a whole the 2014 Schecter Blackjack C7 is a winner with great playability and tone. The best moves that Schecter made was to include the new Duncan Nazgul and Sentient pickups on this model and getting rid of the cream binding from the older Blackjacks and going with the red trim. These updates give the 2014 Schecter Blackjack line a fresh modern look and sound. Making this a great axe ready to gig and record with out of the box.
