Product Description

Get Low... Way Low!
The 8 String Blackjack C8 ATX Guitar from Schecter provides an ultra low playscape for the player who wants their guitar to growl. Excellent for dark metal and other similar styles, the C8 offers hard and heavy tones with high output due to its active Seymour Duncan Black Out humbuckers. Utilizing a mahogany body, 3-piece mahogany neck and Schecter's Ultra-access neck joint, the C8 ATX maybe a behemoth, but it plays like no other.

Overall Rating
Pleasantly Surprised
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I have never been a Schecter fan. Usually when I look for a good gigging guitar, or to try something new, it was always LTD. This guy showed me Schecter really stepped up their game.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Price to quality this can't be beat. Hipshot bridge, locking tuners, self lubricating nut, and decent pickups. Find this for under a grand on another guitar....I dare you
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
My previous experience with Schecter was that the necks were baseball bats. This being my first 8 string, I find it a smooth transition. The only gripe is the amount of gloss on the back of the neck. A non issue that i can fix with some 1000 grit.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Not really digging the Black outs. They are a catch 22 for me, I like duncans...but never big into actives. I will say I have not had enough time to really tweek them so my opinion could change.
How did the stain or paint job look?
They did a great job, the color is solid and fluid. Most companies just through out an 8 string thats black and call it game over. Schecter actually put some thought into this thing, the aged white makes me happy.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
5 years ago at this price range LTD could not be touched. Schecter really has taken the price point to quality to a new level.
How was the action out of the box?
Like all new guitars it needed tweaking
