Please help me. I can't tell the difference between the Schecter C-1 Blackjack http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-C1-Blackjack-Electric-Guitar?sku=518480 and the Schecter C-1 Artist http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-C1-Artist-Limited-Edition-Electric-Guitar?sku=518187 of the same price ($600). They have the same mahogany body, the same shape and finish, and the same pickups (Seymour Duncan JB/'59). The only difference I can see are the inlays on the fretboard. Please tell me what the difference is and which you think is better!
The contouring of the bodies are different, which will change the comfort and sound of the guitar.
which is better?
up to you.
The scale length is also longer on the Blackjack (I think). And one isn't necessarily better than the other. Have you even played either guitar?

they're both pretty much the same, the artist has a little bit of a flashier look to it, other than that, identical.
Well for one, the reviews for the black jack are slightly better.
BUY THEM BOTH! then play them, review them and save us six hundred dollars.
i haven't played the C-1 Artist but the C-1 Blackjack is pretty sweet. pretty much the only differences i can see are the inlays, binding, and the C-1 Artist has pickup covers. it says the scale-length is 26.5" but it's really 25.5", they must've got it confused with the baritone version.
