A sleek shred machine with active electronics and string-thru sustain.
Schecter is breaking new musical ground with their Slim Line Series of electric guitars. Designed with an ultra-thin, lighting fast neck and a sleek contoured body, the Blackjack SLS C-1 Active is armed with a pair of active Seymour Duncan Blackout pickups, a TonePros w/ string-thru body bridge, and Schecter locking tuners. Elegant design appointments include a "Hell's Gate Skull" inlay on its ebony fretboard, and the entire guitar is adorned with black chrome hardware.
3-Piece maple neck
Made with 3 pieces of maple 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.
Satin finish and Ultra-Thin profile
The SLS collection features a satin finish neck for lightning fast playing above and below the 12th fret, an ultra-thin neck profile (19mm at 1st fret/ 20mm at 12th fret), and new Ultra Access neck joint shape for easier access to the last frets.
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 Blackout active pickups
Blackouts capture the tone that players want in an active design using balanced inputs. The result is 12dB to 14dB less noise, plus more lows, highs and output.
Schecter locking tuning machines
These 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.
Hell's Gate Skull inlay
The Mother of Pearl 'Hell's Gate Skull' inlay compliments the beautiful ebony fretboard. The thin white binding strip adds a nice highlight.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack SLS C-1 Active Electric Guitar:
This is one amazing guitar. The neck is super fast. The ebony fretboard feels great. The sound of the pick ups are brutal! I am playing through an Orange Dark Terror and it just sounds super heavy! My first option was a Hellraiser (which I still plan to buy) but I came across a huge sale before Christmas so I got it. Couldn't be happier. I have owned many guitars over the years and still have 7 in all but this Schecter just became my instant favorite. Those pickups are really good. The one I got came with the SD Blackouts and I really like them. If you are planning on getting this I would say don't think about it anymore, just do it! You will not regret it!
