Embrace Rich Tone and Sublime Playability
Blade - 'Delta Queen'

Blade Delta Queen

FROM THE LEGENDARY GARY LEVINSON...
THE BLADE 'DELTA QUEEN'
Introducing the ‘Delta Queen’ 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 Delta Queen. The Delta Queen features the ground-breaking ‘Variable Spectrum Control’ (VSC) a hugely versatile means of shaping the guitars tone, 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 Delta Queen 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 Delta Queen from Blade is a definitive manifestation of comfort enhancing ergonomics, perfect balance and unmatched tone.

A Sleek, Curvacious Body, Exquisitely Finished

Blade Delta Queen

showstopping looksThe Delta Queen’s body is unquestionably stunning, wrapped in slender curves and sleek routing for maximum comfort. The body is made from Okoume, a tonewood which behaves incredibly similarly to mahogany in its resonance and has proven popular and seen increased use with some of the most respected manufacturers in the world today.

The use of Okoume offers many advantages, both sonically and otherwise. Firstly, Okoume makes for a warm, mellow sound whilst responding thoroughly well to low frequencies, and pronounced lower mids with magnificent sustain and resonance. Secondly, Okoume, whilst similar to mahogany in its characteristics and tonal behaviour, is not similar in its physical weight. Good news for those guitarists who often find themselves performing prolonged sets and for those long, hard days in the studio!

The fingerboard is made from maple, which is a perfect choice of wood for the Delta Queen due to it producing a brighter tone which really accentuates the high-end tonalities, well suited to some screaming blues/rock licks! The neck itself is beautifully made and sit’s in the fretting hand with a brilliantly natural, comfortable feel.

Adjustable Tension Guide

back

UNMATCHED SUSTAINThe Delta Queen is packing some truly revolutionary technology. For example, 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.

Furthermore, its asymmetric shape places slightly greater pressure to the 1st string than the 2nd, this design results in incredible sustain and minimum friction eliminating the majority of detuning problems.

Decorated in Magnificent Hardware

Blade Delta Queen

Blade - delta queenThe Delta Queen represents ‘Blade’ quality from top to bottom. Featuring unique technology, premium components and hardware far beyond its price point, the Delta Queen effortlessly breezes past other guitars in its peer group.

Featuring Levinson’s own ‘LH-35’ wide spaced humbucker in the bridge position, and a Levinson ‘LH-3’ humbucker, with enhanced treble and mids in the neck position; powerful, snarling tone is the name of the game here. From the raw, biting voice of the LH-35, to the thicker, creamier, rounder tones of the ‘LH-3’, the spectrum of tones on offer with the Delta Queen is truly vast. Control over the pickups is determined by a 3-way pickup selector, allowing for a choice of either bridge/bridge & neck/neck options. Modify the Delta Queen’s tone even further with the VSC control and there’s almost nothing the Delta Queen can’t turn her hand to!

The Delta Queen’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. Any concerns regarding any potential tuning issues can be firmly laid to rest 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 ‘Delta Queen’.
