ADVANCED CONCEPTS
BY GARY LEVINSON, SWITZERLAND

24 Years Blade guitars - my, how time flies when you're having fun! We're still having fun and continue to be motivated to bring musicians the best tool we can to allow them to unleash their musical creativity.

The decision to create Blade guitars was made in 1985. By 1986 the idea of a line of guitars built on the concept of "Classic Design, Creative Technology" was being refined the features needed to make the line unique were determined. January 1987 a manufacturing alliance was made to bring the highest integrity in build with the most innovative developments. By October 1987 the first instruments were shown at the music show in Tokyo and the Frankfurt Musikmesse 1988 heralded the launch into Europe.

Blade was born in the repair shop. I began with guitar repair in 1964 (although I hate to admit I've been at it that long!) The wonderful thing about repair work is that you learn what is troubling guitarists and what they really would like their instrument to give them in regard to features, feel and playability. What a fantastic training ground to develop a line of instruments! Blade was the result of more than 20 years of solving the problems that guitarists brought me. Every piece of technology was developed to meet a specific need that the musicians had expressed to me. This is the reason why Blade has been one of the most successful new guitar lines to be launched in recent years - we listen to you, the musicians. Thank you for our support and input. If you have never tried a Blade, please do so and experience the Magic for yourself. Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.

RH-4 Classic

The original Blade a modern classic since 1987. This exquisite instrument is immediately recognizable by the sepia colored mirror pickguard and superb finish. The noiseless V-3 single coils give you great tone and punch but without the hum. The LH-55 is the Levinson classic humbucker for warmth and fatness, while not loosing high end clarity. The Variable Spectrum Control Tone Enhancement allows you enormous tonal variation: jazz, blues, rock country - its all there. You will not want to put it down.
