Burbank, CA (Jan 26, 2012) -- New for 2012, the Blackjack SLS (Slim Line Series) is built around some neck specifications not often seen on Schecter Guitars. The SLS collection has been built with the prog-metal shredder styled player in mind. An ultra slim satin-finished 25.5” scale maple neck with a smooth 24-fret ebony fingerboard are set-in with an extreme ultra-access neck joint that allows for playing comfort and ease of access to the upper frets. The lightweight Mahogany bodies are also slimmer than their standard Schecter counterparts.

The SLS Collection is all about options, and the standard models are available with the player’s choice of pickups. The Active Set utilizes two Seymour Duncan Blackouts AHB-1 pickups, while the Passive option is loaded with a combo of Seymour Duncan Full-Shred and Jazz. Both sets yield a wide array of articulate rock, jazz, and heavy tones.

A TonePros System or an Original Floyd Rose 1000 Locking tremolo are available.

Multi-Ply binding, Mother of Pearl 12th fret ‘Hell’s Gate Skull’ inlay, Black Nickel Hardware, and Schecter Locking Tuners are standard.

Available in Satin Black and Dark Blue Sunburst with figured maple top. The Blackjack SLS Guitars start at $1,119.00.
