Schecter Guitar Research has launched its latest line of electric guitars, the Black Ops series, featuring three covert single-cut models engineered for precision and power.

Black Ops In 6, 7 AND 8 String Variants

The Black Ops range includes three models: a standard six-string, a multi-scale seven-string, and an eight-string variant.

Each guitar boasts a sleek and stealthy appearance, with consistent black finishes on the bodies, hardware, fretboards, and electronics, making them perfect for players who prefer a low-profile look on stage.

Constructed with mahogany bodies and three-piece necks reinforced with carbon fiber rods, the Black Ops guitars offer superior stability and sustain.

The ebony fingerboards feature 24 X-Jumbo stainless steel frets and Graph Tech XL Black Tusq nuts for smooth playability and precise intonation.

Top-tier hardware components include Schecter locking tuners and Hipshot bridges, with Multi-Scale Fixed units for the seven and eight-string models to ensure optimal string tension across the extended range.

The electronics consist of a single Fishman Fluence Open Core humbucker pickup, paired with a three-way voicing toggle switch and a master volume pot for versatile tonal options.

What’s The Damage?

Priced at $1,199 for the six-string, $1,249 for the seven-string, and $1,299 for the eight-string versions, Schecter’s Black Ops electric guitars offer professional-grade features and construction at competitive price points.

ELECTRIKJAM Analysis

The thing about these guitars is that, unlike so many other high-end options, they deliver spades and spades of value. You have 6 string, 7 string, and even 8 string variants to choose from as well – who else is doing this kind of thing? 

For just over $1000, you get a single Fishman Fluence Open Core humbucker pickup, paired with a three-way voicing toggle switch. That means you can run it in “metal” mode, so full-chug, in one setting or dial it back to sound like a traditional Single Coil Telecaster. Great for more ambient parts.

One pickup, three completely different tonal profiles. That is massively cool and, as an added bonus, only using one pickup on the guitar has likely dropped the build of materials cost down quite a bit too. Double bonus.

Personally, I love the murdered-out black finish on these. Add in the fact that they’re Tele-style (or T-style) and, for me, they could be one of the coolest releases this year. Schecter is killing it at the moment, and the return of Black Ops proves it ain’t slowing down any time soon. 

Consider me smitten.
