I was browsing the Schecter website this morning and Ive always loved how this guitar look in the black satin finish, i also think the single inlay at the 12th fret is a nice touch

http://www.schecterguitars.com/International/Products/Guitar/Blackjack-ATX-Solo-6.aspx

but i was wondering if the lack of inlays is hard to get used to, Ive never played a guitar with no inlays like that. so basically my question is does it take time to get used to? or does it not even bother you when you first pick it up? or do some people never get used to it?

You (usually) still have the side markers so unless you play bent over like a retard it doesnt make any difference.

Yeah basically this. You're never staring at the inlays to see where you're playing. It's always the side markers.

I've met a few people who get bugged by it, but most people never really look at the inlays anyways.

as long as you still have side markers, there's no reason whatsoever that you should be concerned about a lack of inlays.

It might feel a bit uncomfortable at first but I tell you this is a better way to learn the fretboard. I find it slowing down my learning progress by relying on the fretboard markers all the times.

It would bug me personally. I don't stare down the inlays while I play or anything but just being able to see them from an angle helps. I don't think I ever look at the side dots. Then again iv got bigger inlays than most. (Blocks and Traps on my two les pauls)

This is the best guitar I have played. I bought it last April and the inlays didn't bother me at all. Like someone said above, the markers on the side of the neck help but it is hardly noticeable while playing. Plus, the blackouts that come stock are awesome. The neck and fretboard are real smooth and play like butter. I highly recommend this guitar and don't worry about the inlays. You won't even notice them.

After you've been playing for a while it's mostly muscle memory anyway.

I prefer them without fretmarkers. A clean neck just looks waaaaaaaaay better to me.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Absolutely this. The only difference it makes is that its harder to show other people how to play something.

Not sure which your saying I do. Are you agreeing that I have bigger than average inlays? Or disagree about whether I look at the side dots?

So true, my Parker has no inlays, it doesn't bother me when playing but my band mates have real trouble when I'm trying to show them how to play things.

I might put a set of stickers on the fretboard of my LTD Alex Wade 7-String. I prefer having the markers to orient oneself; particularly with 24-fret guitars. But as others have said, you do get used to not having them there.

I have an acoustic with no inlays, doesn't bother me at all

I basically have that same Schecter, only the V body style. There are side markers and those are what 99% of players look at anyway, even if they don't realize it. I did not notice any difference when I picked it up and started playing. I actually really dig the lightening bolt inlay on the 12th; I think it looks sexier than most guitars with inlays.

I can say I truly love my Schecter and haven't played a guitar I like better.

I've only had 1 guitar (that I can remember) which had a single inlay on the 12th fret. I never really had trouble figuring out where I was.

If it ever got troublesome, you can just get some inlay stickers.

The first electric guitar I ever bought as an Epi G-400 Goth with nothing but a XII inlay at the 12th fret. It never bothered me at all, and I found it pretty handsome.

Indeed it is. I got the Blackjack ATX FR about a year ago, similar sort of set up I suspect, but you are right on all accounts
