Eight-string guitars have long been reserved for professionals and rich individuals able to afford a custom made guitar. But, in recent years Schecter, along with several other brands, has done a lot to incorporate the eight-strings into the guitar mainstream. The result is more than astonishing, as eight-strings become more and more popular among metal guitarists. One of the best examples of affordable, yet professionally made eight-string is Blackjack SLS C-8 A. It comes with a solid C-8 body made of mahogany and set in maple neck. Ebony fingerboard with 24 XJ frets and offset dot inlays is found on top of the neck. Seymour Duncan Blackouts are installed in the pickups department. Basic Blackjack set of controls is installed with them. Big eight-saddled Hipshot bridge and locking Schecter tuners complete the specs list.
