A Retro Classic...Revived
Blade - 'Dayton Deluxe'
FROM THE LEGENDARY GARY LEVINSON...
THE BLADE 'Dayton DELUXE' introducing the ‘Dayton Deluxe’ from the esteemed ‘Blade’ guitars, founded by industry icon Gary Levinson.
In 1987 Mr Levinson set forth to create his own range of guitars focussing on the highest integrity build, alongside the most innovative developments. Later that year, Blade guitars were unveiled to expectant eyes and ears at the Tokyo Music Show, and the rest, as they say…is history.
Fast forward to the present day, and the results of Gary’s unwavering commitment to building the finest quality guitars, full of revolutionary innovations are plain to see in guitars such as this, the Blade Dayton Deluxe. The Dayton Deluxe features the ground-breaking ‘Variable Spectrum Control’ (VSC), Adjustable Tension Guide (ATG), and other innovations such as the ‘EZ Access Neck Rod’ for quick and simple access to the truss rod.
This is a truly professional guitar, for the guitarist who seeks killer tones, show-stopping looks and flawless playability, but doesn't want to break the bank! The Dayton Deluxe has modern features, functionalities and a gorgeous aesthetic, but with a classic vibe that feels inexplicably familiar when you pick up this spectacular guitar. The Dayton Deluxe from Blade is a definitive manifestation of comfort enhancing ergonomics, perfect balance and unmatched tone.
A Retro Classic - Revitalised
SHOWSTOPPING LOOKSThe beautiful, curvaceous body of the ‘Dayton Deluxe' from Blade is made from North American Alder, a popular choice of wood, used still to this day by some of the most revered manufacturers in the world today.
The use of North American Alder offers many advantages, both sonically and otherwise. Firstly, the use of Alder wood makes for a bold, clear and fully-voiced sound, with prominent mid’s and full-bodied lows. Secondly, Alder bodied guitars often weigh less than guitars made of, say, mahogany. Good news for those guitarists who often find themselves performing prolonged sets and for those long, hard days in the studio.
The Dayton Deluxe's sublime fingerboard is made from Pau Ferro. Pau Ferro offers a smooth feel, warm tone and a ‘snappy’ attack, creating a clear, crisp overall sound. The neck itself is beautifully made and sit’s in the fretting hand with a brilliantly natural, comfortable and familiar feel. The neck is super-fast and extremely encouraging to play.
The Variable Spectrum Control (VSC)
INCREDIBLE SCOPE FOR VARIATION IN TONEAs mentioned earlier, the Dayton Deluxe is a guitar which is rich in innovative and revolutionary technology, namely, the 'VSC' technology.
The Variable Spectrum Control is a means of tweaking the tone of the guitar. For example, if the piece of music you’re playing requires a thinner, more 'jangly' tone that you might normally expect from a single-coil pickup, no problem, just tweak the VSC and enjoy the chimey, bell-like tones you’d expect to find on an entirely different kind of guitar.
Need something a little creamier and little thicker, the VSC has you covered. Just activate the toggle switch situated neatly between the master volume and tone control, and reap the rewards of the incredble VSC. Many guitars are portrayed to be versatile, but none can lay claim to be as versatile as the Dayton Deluxe.
Decorated in Magnificent Hardware
BLADE - Dayton DELUXEThe Dayton Deluxe represents ‘Blade’ quality from top to bottom. Featuring unique technology, premium components and hardware far beyond its price point, the Dayton Deluxe effortlessly breezes past other guitars in its peer group.
Featuring 'LHN-3' Calibrated humbuckers in both the bridge and the neck position, the Dayton Deluxe sings with a smooth, creamy voice with the neck pickup selected, whilst the bridge humbucker lets rip with powerful dynamics and high-end. When you consider the VSC technology alongside this, the spectrum of tones on offer with the Dayton Deluxe is truly vast. Control wise, the Dayton Deluxe sports a 3-way pickup selector, allowing for a choice of either bridge/bridge & neck/neck options.
The Dayton Deluxe's bridge system is dealt with via a sturdy and reliable 6-saddle bridge, which helps for any intonation issues and aids in retaining rock-solid tuning stability. The tremolo system is Blade’s own ‘M-525’, which allows for unparalleled string to pole piece alignment, and not to mention massive whammy-bar abuse. Any concerns regarding any potential tuning issues can be firmly laid to rest however, thanks to the inclusion of the ‘Adjustable Tension Guide’ (ATG), this ATG technology, is unique to Blade guitars. It comprises of a small, spring loaded, height adjustable string tree which sits between the 1st and 2nd strings. This feature allows tension adjustment to compensate for the difference between various string gauges. Fantastic!
If you're in the market for a thoroughly versatile guitar, with looks to die for, playability and tones that are out of this world, and don’t want to break the bank, you have to give serious consideration to Blade’s Dayton Deluxe’.
