The Ultimate Blues Rock Machine...
The Blade T-3 Custom

Blade T3 Custom, Pau Ferro Fb (Korea)

FROM THE LEGENDARY GARY LEVINSON...
THE BLADE T-3 Custom
Introducing the ‘T-3 Custom' 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 T-3 Custom. The T-3 Custom features the ground-breaking ‘Variable Spectrum Control’ (VSC), Adjustable Tension Guide (ATG), Levinson T-4/1 pickups and an utterly spectacular finish.

This is a truly magnificent guitar, for the discerning blues/rock guitarist. The T-3 has modern features and functionalities, but with that classic and timeless vibe that feels like an old friend when you pick up this genuinely beautiful guitar. The T-3 oozes sheer quality right from the moment it’s in your hands. If you’re in the market for the ultimate blues/country/rock electric guitar, with looks which will command the attention of your audience, look no further than this jaw-dropping T-3 Custom from Blade.

A Truly Mesmerising Finish

LOOKS TO DIE FORThe Blade T-3 is comprised of only the highest-grade materials. The body is made from Swamp Ash, a revered tonewood, who’s tonal characteristics typically offer a brighter sound than more common types of wood, and is also often slightly lighter than other tonewoods. Swamp Ash also sports a magnificent woodgrain, this is highly evident in the finish of the T-3, particularly on the reverse of the guitar.

The fingerboard is made from Pao Ferro, which is a perfect choice of wood for the T-3 due to it producing a warmer tone than maple, perfect for those Delta Blues licks. The neck itself is beautifully made and sit’s in the fretting hand with a brilliantly natural, comfortable feel.

A staple of Mr Levinson’s Blade guitars is their consistently breath-taking finishes. The T-3 Custom is no exception to this rule and sports a truly mesmerising finish, so good that it’s almost impossible not to pick up the T-3 once you’ve locked eyes on this incredible finish.

The Variable Spectrum Control (VSC)

Blade T3 Custom, Pau Ferro Fb (Korea)

INCREDIBLE SCOPE FOR VARIATION IN TONEAs mentioned earlier, the T-3 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 open up the dedicated panel on the reverse of the guitar, turn a screw, 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 T-3.

Stellar Hardware

PREMIUM, VERSATILE HARDWAREThe T-3 is decorated in premium hardware from top to bottom. The T-3 features true single coils to deliver solid punch and bite that you'd expect from an instrument such as the T-3. In the bridge position is Gary Levinson designed ‘Levinson T-4’ for snarling blues licks and red hot powerchords, whilst in the neck position you'll find the slightly overwound T-1, hit the T-1 for those seductive leads and arpeggiated passages.

The T-3's controls feature a 3-way pickup selector switch offering a wide palette of tones. Whilst in the 1st position, this selects the bridge pickup, the middle position will select both the bridge and the neck, whilst in the 3rd position, this leaves the neck pickup active. The volume and tone controls are placed well out of the way so as to avoid any accidental knocks and the pots themselves are solid and sturdy and are easy to grip.

If you're in the market for the ultimate blues/rock machine that is sure to turn heads, playability to die for and classic tones that are out of this world, nothing comes close to the Blade T-3 Custom.
