OVERVIEW

A Floyd Rose®-equipped, sleek rocker with sustain for days.

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 FR Sustainiac is armed with a Seymour Duncan Full Shred bridge pickup and Sustainiac neck pickup, a Floyd Rose 1000 Series locking tremolo, 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 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 Full Shred and Sustainiac pickups
The Full Shred contains double rows of Allen screw pole pieces help fine tune the high end, leaving a tone that's fat and chunky, yet perfectly defined for speed riffs. The Sustainiac driver/pickup produces beautiful humbucker tones when the sustain switch is off, and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched on. The Sustainiac Driver creates an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback.

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.

Case sold separately.

Best Uses

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack SLS C-1 FR Sustainiac Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar after owning an Epi Goth Explorer for a few years. The Schecter is lighter, plays easier (smaller neck) and sounds better.

    The pickups sound really heavy, however individual notes still shine through. The sustainer works exactly as it should and does a great job on clean sounds also.

    This was my first experience with a Floyd Rose so after a bumpy start, i was ably to tune to D standard and havent retuned yet after about a month of having it. Stays in tune better than my old guitar without a FR.

    Fit and finish is great. Nothing to complain about there. This guitar is beautiful.

    I do have a few complaints which would probably be directed more at the seller than the actual guitar.

    I bought a "mint condition" used version of this guitar from this page. I would consider the guitar to be in mint condition. I would never have known it was used if I hadnt bought it myself. However, the guitar was delivered without a tremolo bar, and none of the hex keys/allen wrenches were the right size to adjust anything with so I bought a cheap set of my own.

    Also, the neck on mine does not have the Hells Gate inlay. It has the dot inlays between the E and A strings, which is not a big deal, but isnt what I was expecting. This is an issue because at they time there was a rebate on this guitar for a free hard case for any guitar with a Hells Gate inlay, which I thought I was getting. Believe it or not, that was a selling point for me.

    In the end Musicians Friend helped me out and refunded me some money (and a little extra) so I could go buy a tremolo bar (instead of waiting for them to send me one after they got them in stock).

    Overall this guitar is great for my uses. I play as a hobby at home, and dont do any gigging. I came from a mid-range, so this is a step in the right direction for me.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack SLS C-1 FR Sustainiac Electric Guitar:

    This guitar, regardless of what the specs say, does not come with locking tuners. The Hellraiser C-8 has locking tuners, this guitar has Grover tuners, not Schecter locking tuners. I wish they would change this description. I've ordered two of these, from different dealers, and neither one has locking tuners.
