Dayton Standard

Dayton Standard

The Dayton Standard is the foundation of the series. A North American alder body and maple neck build the tonal chassis. The instrument is adorned with a vintage-colored pickguard mounted with Blade’s VS-1 single coil and new LP-92 Soapbar in a humbucker size package. The new pickup delivers a distinctive combination of balanced high output and brilliant treble response making it a great companion to the vintage tone of the VS-1 in the neck position. Other features include Blade’s M-54 tremolo with tone balance string spacing and a rosewood fingerboard.

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 an asymmetric spring loaded height adjustment to keep you in tune, no matter how hard you wail on your whammy bar.

Tapered Neck Joint

Enjoy better access to the upper registers with the tapered neck joint for more comfort and speed.

M-54 Tremolo

A Blade® classic. The custom steel saddles are spaced at 54 mm to give the best string alignment for both single coils and humbuckers and afford optimal string positioning on the edge of the fingerboard. The solid steel block delivers pure vintage tone with no compromises.
