Schecter Adds Single-Cut to AXT Lineup

The Blackjack AXT Solo-6 features Seymour Duncan blackouts and minimalist appointments.

Los Angeles, CA (March 2, 2010) -- Schecter Guitars has added a single-cut option to their minimalist Blackjack AXT series. This is what the company had to say about the addition:


For no frills reckless abandoned, Schecter’s Blackjack ATX Solo-6 addition rounds out an already small grouping of reclusive siblings packing serious aggression.

The heavy metal purist will find the pair of Seymour Duncan Active Blackouts as the prominent standout on this heavily subdued Mahogany body at 25.5” scale. A 3-piece Mahogany neck is set in with Schecter’s Ultra Access for nailing the 24X Jumbo Frets on Ebony.

You won’t find any fame seeking inlays other than an electric active symbol placed at the 12th fret with an understated Aged Multi-Ply binding. Straight up features continue with a TonePros TOM w/Thru-Body bridge system and easy to utilize Volume/Volume/Tone controls give the modern player the freedom to concentrate on playing. Hardware follows suit in Black Chrome and it’s all locked up with Schecter Locking Tuners.

Available in Aged Black Satin (ABSN) or Aged White (AWHT) for $1069 MSRP.

Summons a wealth of engaging, and often unique, boost, drive, distortion, and fuzz tones that deviate from common templates. Interactive controls.

Finding just-right tones, while rewarding, might demand patience from less assured and experienced drive-pedal users. Tone control could be more nuanced.

The Danelectro Nichols 1966, in spite of its simplicity, feels and sounds like a stompbox people will use in about a million different ways. Its creator, Steve Ridinger, who built the first version as an industrious Angeleno teen in 1966, modestly calls the China-made Nichols 1966 a cross between a fuzz and a distortion. And, at many settings, it is most certainly that.
