Blade - 'Texas Deluxe'
FROM THE LEGENDARY GARY LEVINSON...
THE BLADE 'TEXAS DELUXE' Introducing the ‘Texas 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 stunning Blade Texas Deluxe. The Texas Deluxe features the ground-breaking ‘Variable Spectrum Control’ (VSC), Coil-tap functionality, 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, unique functionalities, show-stopping looks and flawless playability! The Texas Deluxe has modern features, modern functionalities and a simply stunning aesthetic, but with a classic vibe that feels inexplicably familiar when you pick up this spectacular guitar. The Texas Deluxe from Blade is a definitive manifestation of comfort enhancing ergonomics, perfect balance and unmatched tone.
A Sleek, Curvacious Body, Exquisitely Finished
SHOWSTOPPING LOOKSThe Texas Deluxe’s body is unquestionably stunning, wrapped in slender curves and sleek routing for maximum comfort. The body is made from highly revered ‘American Pine’, a tonewood which is a close relative to spruce and cedar wood, American Pine has a superb resonance thanks to its density, and has seen increased use with some of the most respected manufacturers in the world today.
The use of American Pine offers many advantages, both sonically and otherwise. Firstly, American Pine makes for a gentle, but present high-end, whilst responding thoroughly well to low frequencies, and has an open midrange with magnificent sustain and resonance. Secondly, American Pine, whilst similar to spruce and cedar in its characteristics and tonal behaviour, is not similar in its physical weight, American Pine makes for lightweight feel. Good news for those guitarists who often find themselves performing prolonged sets and for those long, hard days in the studio!
The Texas Deluxe's fingerboard is made from Pau Ferro, arguably similar in appearance to rosewood, but tighter in grain which results in a ‘snappier’ tone. Pau Ferro offers a deep, warm tone, and a smooth playing experience underneath the fingers. 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.
'Adjustable Tension Guide'The Texas Deluxe 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 - TEXAS DELUXEThe Texas Deluxe represents ‘Blade’ quality from top to bottom. Featuring unique technology, premium components and hardware far beyond its price point, the Texas Deluxe effortlessly breezes past other guitars in its peer group.
Featuring Levinson’s own ‘LH-35’ humbucker in the bridge position, and Levinson’s ‘VS-2’ single coils in the middle and neck position. Powerful, cutting, snarling tone is the name of the game here. From the raw, biting voice of the ‘LH-35’, to the chiming, creamier, rounder tones of the ‘VS-2’, the spectrum of tones on offer with the Texas Deluxe is truly vast. Control over the pickups is determined by a 5-way pickup selector. Modify the Texas Deluxe’s tone even further with the VSC control and the push/pull coil tap and there’s almost nothing the Texas Deluxe can’t turn her hand to!
The Texas Deluxe’s bridge system is taken care of by Blade’s own rock-solid ‘M-525’ tremolo system. The M-525 offers solid tuning stability, even after some serious whammy-bar abuse! Any concerns regarding any potential tuning issues from whammy-bar action 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 head-turning looks, magnificent playability and tones that are out of this world, you have to give serious thought to Blade’s ‘Texas Deluxe’!
