Adjustable Tension Guide
Every detail of a Blade® guitar represents a commitment to engineering perfection. The Adjustable Tension Guide (ATG) perfectly balances the string tension at the nut with asymmetric a spring loaded height adjustment to keep you in tune, no matter how hard you wail on your whammy bar.
This patented tremolo looks,feels and sounds like a vintage style unit but incorporates a patented double block system that also allows uptrem while sitting flat on the guitar body. Unlike floating tremolos, the Falcon transmits all of the tone the strings and wood have to offer for the biggest sound possible. The Falcon Tremolo enhances attack and sustain AND stays in tune even if a string is broken - a feature that floating trems cannot do. Even deep bends against open strings are possible - the open strings do not detune. Now that’s style
24 Years Blade guitars - my, how time flies when you're having fun! We're still having fun and continue to be motivated to bring musicians the best tool we can to allow them to unleash their musical creativity.
The decision to create Blade guitars was made in 1985. By 1986 the idea of a line of guitars built on the concept of "Classic Design, Creative Technology" was being refined the features needed to make the line unique were determined. January 1987 a manufacturing alliance was made to bring the highest integrity in build with the most innovative developments. By October 1987 the first instruments were shown at the music show in Tokyo and the Frankfurt Musikmesse 1988 heralded the launch into Europe.
Blade was born in the repair shop. I began with guitar repair in 1964 (although I hate to admit I've been at it that long!) The wonderful thing about repair work is that you learn what is troubling guitarists and what they really would like their instrument to give them in regard to features, feel and playability. What a fantastic training ground to develop a line of instruments!
Blade was the result of more than 20 years of solving the problems that guitarists brought me. Every piece of technology was developed to meet a specific need that the musicians had expressed to me. This is the reason why Blade has been one of the most successful new guitar lines to be launched in recent years - we listen to you, the musicians.
Thank you for our support and input. If you have never tried a Blade, please do so and experience the Magic for yourself. Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.
