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.

There is no need for us to replicate every detail here, but as a tribute
to the brand, here's the original flagship model that started it all
off, and is still the top of the line. See the attention to detail and
the thought that went into that original design...
Custom models are also available should you need something more than
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 - it’s all there. You
will not want to put it down.
