The Blackjack series from Schecter has returned with a vengance. Primed and ready with Hot Seymour Duncan pickups, the Blackjack Avenger Tempest packs a punch with a heavy and aggressive but articulate tone that is perfect for the modern player. It's dynamic and original Tempest styling and glossy black finish make it a stand out player in the quest for a quality axe.
The Blackjack Tempest has all the standout features found in a high quality Schecter guitar. A carved mahogany body base gives the guitar a rich and deep tone, and combining with a thin "C" shaped mahogany neck and ebony fretboard gives a lighning fast feel and dark tone. Other great features include the Hipshot Hardtail bridge with string-thru body, ensuring reliable tuning and great sustain.
To fully harness the rich mahogany tone, Schecter have paired the Blackjack with 2 high output Semour Duncan pickups. Sitting at the bridge is the Nazgul, a monster pickup with heavy saturation and lighning fast response for a great chug sound, an aggressive and articulate attack and tonal armageddon! This is complemented perfectly by the Sentient neck pick-up, offering a warm, modern classic tone with tight articulation and a complex palette.
