I've had this guitar over two years now and still love it. The first thing that gets me is that every time I pick up my LP, I've got to retune the thing, but the Blackjack is always in tune. This thing was a Christmas present, and I'd never played it before hand, but it played beautifully out of the box. Carved top with vintage binding...looks great. Also that fact that it doesn't come with "Duncan designed" pups, but an actual '59/JB set is pretty cool, and they sound great. I have put an air Norton in my neck, and am considering a drop sonic in the bridge to accommodate my heavier playing. They only down is that the neck is a bit big, but that's in comparison to my paper thin RG.
This guitar is great. Definitely the best deal for a 7 string with passive pickups.Get this guitar, It's worth it.
I have played a lot of 7 Strings and the sound you get out of this Guitar is amazing. It has a modern tone and crunch like no other and it's STOCK! Let your strings go dead and still be amazed. Once you get new ones you fall in love all over again. I would recommend resetting the action if you are a speed player but I have not changed a thing. And Oh! the blues tone you get on the 4th pickup selection is to die for considering this is a rockin 7 string guitar. I wasn't sure about the 5 toggle but it grew on me and for the better. Personally you can hear this one stand out. My only thing is that the neck pickup could be a tad more meatier. But it redeems it's self on a clean channel.
This model has great tone, but lacking a bit in the sustain department. Nothing a change in pickups or an addition of a compressor pedal can't fix. The sight of this guitar is amazing, the cream edges and gloss black are breathtaking. It originally had a slight string buzz, so I changed out the strings and made some minor adjustments to the bridge, which eliminated it. The overall neck is a bit longer than I'm use to, which I had made a few adjustments to my posture and positioning, and all was well. The weight is very comfortable and well balanced, compared to 3 other 7 strings I've had (a Dean, and two Washburns). The tuners hold up quite nicely, and rarely get out of tune.
I've had this Schecter over a year and its awesome. It feels so cool, the neck glides when you play it, its got to be the best neck i've ever played. The Seymoure Duncans produce the most amazing sound. The neck and emg active 81 and 85 on my Ibanez don't come nearly as close as I like to play this and the Seymoure Duncans are way better than the emgs. The only thing is I wish this guitar had a Floyd Rose, I know Schecters rarely have these, but they are just really cool too, not to say the string through isn't nice, it sure is easy to change the strings. The finish is really cool (it looks better in person) with the fantastaic cream white binding, but this is a very high gloss paint so scratches and fingerprints do show up quite easy if you care. Overall, this is a great guitar and worth the money, all the blackjacks are.
This is deffinatly the best guitar i have ever played in my life, and i have played alot. I orderd a Schecter 007 Elite, and it just cannot beat this guitar. So i sent back the 007 and kept this Schecter C-7, this has the very tone i have been looking for. It has extreamly clean tone, aswell as the best growl/crunch from the distortion that i ever have gotton out of a guitar. I can get the heaviest music out of it, aswell as very clean tones. This guitar is great for all types of music. Its amazing.
I looked around a lot to see if i could find a better guitar for the money and this is the best. The only problem i've ever had with it was that the pickups buzz just barely when distorted. Other than that very minor problem, this is definitely the way to go especially if you like to tune down low, the extra scale length is wonderful.
This Schecter is far more superior to any seven string out there! I already play an A-7 elite series with a 25.5 scale neck, and the Black Jack holds 'B' way better. This is definitely the only 7 string I will play on stage! Thank You and thank you Schecter!
The first thing that should be said about this guitar is that the seymour duncan's are absolutely SMOKING. Those of you afraid of passive pickup output should definitely check these out, they make the strings scream out. As for the rest of the guitar: The grover tuners are smooth and accurate, the tonepros bride and string thru body makes the whole guitar vibrate with resonance, and the 26.5" scale length makes the seventh string sound absolutely evil. If you play metal, and need a seven-string guitar, this should definitely be one you look at. I love it. Oh yeah, and the action is smooth and fast, Heck yeah.
This guitar plays and sounds like a dream, and I challenge anyone to find a sexier one. Whether you're playing metal or jazz, this guitar has that deep, full sound you've been looking for. I run mine through a Boss Metal Zone pedal into a Tech 21 Trademark 120 - that 7th string makes the walls shake. Its black, black, and some more black. Two words: BAD-ASS.
