Schecter Blackjack SLS C-1 FR Review
Sleek in hand, tricked for high-gain performance and famous for their perfect out-of-the-box playability, these guitars are favorites of budget-conscious shredders. The Blackjack SLS is the latest addition to this brood. Available in 11 variations, it features a body of solid mahogany to create a heavy midrange and powerful lows.
As a result, they weigh no more than the average alder or ash body. The neck is set into the body and heavily sculpted at the heel for an easy grip in the upper registers.
Schecter has given the neck a brand-new profile geared for those who prefer a very thin and fast neck that delivers comfort and speed. Each is created from three strips of maple, ensuring greater overall stability and practically eliminating the possibility that it will twist or warp. The C-1 FR-S is built for shredders who want a full arsenal of metal weapons at their disposal in a package that looks as fast as it is functional.
Speaking of sustain, the C-1 FR-S is loaded with an active Sustainiac system, which doubles as a neck pickup. Normal mode infinitely sustains any note, with no coloration, while the Mix mode sustains the note and sometimes morphs the sound into the second or third harmonic. The Harmonic mode sends a sustained note into fifth or seventh harmonics, like a beautiful natural feedback. I like to keep the system in Normal mode and then slam the switch anytime I need a quick jolt of harmonic feedback.
Schecter has come a really long way throughout the years. In recent times, they have managed to surprise us over and over. In terms of features, the Blackjack SLS offers a little bit of everything.
The highlight of this guitar is how comfortable it is to play! Coming in at around 7lbs, this guitar is quite light for being made of mahogany. Also thanks to the compound radius, the lower-end has a bit more chunkiness to the neck so you can really dig into some rhythm playing.
I do wish it was a bit brighter so I could see more of the flame. Similar to the Damien Platinum that we reviewed a while back , the Blackjack SLS comes with a mahogany body, maple neck, and maple top. These tried-and-true tonewoods deliver a balanced, warm sound with a low-mid focus. Before even plugging it in, I enjoyed the loud, deep sounds I could get out of it.
The mahogany body is also great to use when routing for a Floyd Rose. The heavy wood allows you to take big chunks out without sacrificing tone. We have a sweet guide to different tonewoods available if you want to read more.
The Seymour Duncan Full Shred was expertly chosen for this guitar. Now I see why they call it Full Shred. In all seriousness though, the pickup was definitely built for the modern shredder in mind. The harmonics are full and make for great dive bombs. The pickup attack is very quick and powerful as well. Regarding rhythm playing, I found that it performed power chord filled and heavy riffing styles very well. Due to the Full Shred being a really aggressive, mid-focused pickup, the Jazz was a perfect choice for when you need to tone it down a bit and get some smoother sounds out of the guitar.
Batons Impact Weapons. Bodyguard Protection. Pepper Spray. A sap is a flat, beavertail-shaped leather impact weapon that is weighted with lead on at least one end. Higher quality saps have semi-flexible spring steel running the full internal length of the weapon.
Saps are very portable and inconspicuous. But, they can deliver a tremendously devastating punch with even a relatively small amount of applied force. Saps are in fact very dangerous weapons. They are capable of shattering bone. And, if a leather sap's edge is used in a striking blow, as opposed to the flat face, a serious laceration will almost certainly occur.
As a safety precaution, police departments that allow officers to carry saps typically advise their personnel to only aim for large muscle areas such as the bicep or thigh. Such guidelines are meant to prevent the breaking of limbs or even the cracking of a skull. These days, the sap is actually somewhat of a rarity in law enforcement.
Many agencies throughout the country have banned them from officer usage due to fears over police brutality allegations and lawsuits. So, it's primarily been for political correctness, as opposed to weapon ineffectiveness, that saps have been phased out by many police departments. Some agencies have concluded that saps aren't as versatile as the very popular expandable baton.
However, many veteran officers completely disagree. For decades, thousands of officers and deputies have relied on saps as easy to conceal, close-quarters back-up weapons. Police uniform pants often feature pockets specifically sized and shaped to hold a sap. Because a leather sap is such a flat, short device, it is very easy for a law enforcement officer to carry one.
