Finally, what is behind this BlackJack ATX C-8?
The manufacturing quality of the guitar is impeccable. The finish is irreproachable and the hardware has been carefully selected to conceive a nice looking guitar that stays in tune and produces a warm mahogany tone with a long sustain.
Regarding electronics, the Seymour Duncan pickups are an original and valuable alternative to the EMGs the other models in the range provide, which results in a slightly more "vintage" tone.
However, the long scale and the neck width are not ideal for every guitar player: you must have long fingers to make the best out of this BlackJack ATX C-8.
Finally, I find it's a pleasant and attractive guitar with a good value for money ratio. This serious instrument can take you to a new sonic universe which is still widely unexplored.
- Manufacturing quality
- Hardware quality
- Seymour Duncan Blackout pickups
- Good value for money
- Wide long-scale neck (which makes the guitar inaccessible for some)
- Original string set is a bit too heavy for the high strings and too light for the low strings
- No case or gig bag provided with the guitar
