Schecter Blackjack C1 BLK – electric guitar review with “Top Gear” award

TopGuitar is proud to announce that the Schecter Blackjack C1 BLK electric guitar was reviewed in the April issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month. The instrument was delivered for review by Schecter distributor in Poland, Mega Music.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“Blackjack is a line of guitars created for musicians who seek powerful, uncompromising sound. With ascetic yet elegant project and high quality hardware, Schecter once again proves that compromise is not the way to go with guitar building, and that a well-designed instrument stands its ground with every single detail.”

“Schecter Blackjack C1 BLK is one of those instruments that don’t require for us to get used to. From the very first moment, you feel like you had owned this guitar for years and as if the neck was profiled to your exact personal specification.”

“This instrument is definitely built for invoking dark, metal tones, but the manufacturer left an open door for softer rock players as well, by giving them the opportunity to split humbucker coils. Thanks to this, you can utilize a broad spectrum of clean to lightly overdriven sounds.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
