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), 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
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 Delta Queen’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 Variable Spectrum Control (VSC)
INCREDIBLE SCOPE FOR VARIATION IN TONEAs mentioned earlier, the Delta Queen 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 Delta Queen.
Decorated in Magnificent Hardware
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’.
