A dark, devastating weapon of rock.

A heavy hitter and the perfect tool for laying down a deep crunch or a crystal clear solo. Its set-neck construction and string-thru bridge enhance the resonance and sustain of its mahogany body, and the 26-1/2 scale plus Seymour Duncan humbuckers give it a strong, crushing tone. The 5-way switch with split coil give you tons of tonal flexibility. Heavy string tension lets you really dig in. Black finish and black chrome hardware accented by multi-ply binding.

Pleasant Suprise

By VRstone87

from Charlotte, NC

I was looking for an upgrade to my Ibanez GAX70 and came across the Schecter C-1 Blackjack in a pawn shop in mint condition I picked it up, got it home and plugged it in for a pleasant surprise. It's become a great friend to me and I've gigged with it a few times and hasn't failed me yet. The neck thru body and Seymour Duncan pickups are a great feature to this guitar along with the Grover Tuners.


Love this guitar

Bought this guitar at a sale to replace my vintage Les Paul (now in storage). I didn't think anything can take it's place after so many years, but after a few solo jam sessions this guitar is awesome!!! It feels great, sounds great and looks hot.

ive been playing this guitar for about six months now, and seriously, im impressed. the JB '59's will play any style you want, the set neck and string thru give you sustain like nothing else, and the 5-way switch is the kicker. this guitar is so versatile, you cannot beat it. i play it through a Marshall AVT 20 for practice, and it sounds amazing. Schecter's are so underrated, but im telling you, you won't find a better guitar for the money.


Simply awesome

Got this guitar to retire my vintage Gibson (and let it appreciate in peace) and after few days, I love it. The feel is different from my old LP (higher fret bars), but after few days I started to bond with this guitar and for sure it will be another keeper for the collection. Love the neck and the smooth transition allowing for all 24 frets to be used. The SD pick-ups sound great. Go and get one of these - you won't regret it.

I bought this guitar about a year ago and it is exactly what I was looking for. The distortion has incredible definition and when soloing, the notes are crystal clear. I enjoy playing my guitars very aggressively and this guitar has rarely gone out of tune. If you want reliability, a killer tone and a good looking guitar, look no further.

This guitar is AWSOME. I have been playing for two years, and this is perfect for someone playing only only for a couple years, or someone that has been playing for a long time. It has great tone, and a great feel to it. It is great for playing classic rock, and even metal. I've played it on many amps, but i am now using a tube amp, and the great tone of the guitar really shows off. The only problem is that after a while the pickups fall in the guitar, and the input jack comes loose. The nut comes off, and it's a pain to put back on. Overall this guitar is a great choice.

This is one of the best guitars I've ever played. Even better considering the price you pay for it. You've got a lot of tonal options, and with distortion this thing can shred with the best of them. Fit and finish is excellent, and overall it feels like a very solid guitar.My one complaint is the use of the dark pearl inlays (which I'm not a fan of) but other than that you couldn't ask for a better guitar.


A very good guitar...

This guitar is nice. It has good pickups and great sound. The action is low (maybe too low). The only concern is....Many Schecters tend to fall apart within a few years of playing. The pickups sink and the input jack sinks. It may be a little work, but this guitar is probably worth playing and collecting.


Nice Ax

I recently played this at the guitar center near my place and this ax is nice! the sustaining on this thing is crazy! i will be purchasing this sometime in the near future, it plays just wonderfully. the only reason i gave it a 9 on features is because it doesnt have a floyd, but what the hell, you dont always need 1. get this ax you wont be disappointed!


This guitar is kicking!

By DantheMan777

from Squaw Valley CA

The C-1 Blackjack is awesome! Its sounds good in clean. I play this through a 120 crate. I play a lot of solo's and this guitar is perfect for that. The distortion sound is incredible. The pickups are pretty sweet. The 5-way switching gives variety in clean and distorted. When dropping down, the strings are not like rubber bands. Believe me this guitar is great. It's built strong, comfortable to play and not too heavy in weight.I have had no problems with it since I bought it last December 06. Please try out this guitar you won't be disappointed.
