The RH1C is based on the 1989 original RH-1 with our Classic Custom Series treatment. It sports the same great Blade hardware and electronic features on an alder body coupled with a beautifully figured burl top. The Levinson VS-1 single coils and LH-55 humbucker set the foundation for the Variable Spectrum Control VSC as the ultimate tone shaper. Locking machine heads and the Levinson FT-4 tremolo ensure tuning stability, great attack and exceptional sustain.
