Superior woodwork, vintage style tuners and the Blade VSC-4 takes the Texas Pro beyond the limitations of conventional instruments. Since its introduction in 1994 it has become a “Standard of Excellence” for discerning musicians seeking the traditional single coil tone with the limitless enhancement of Blade’s Variable Spectrum Control – VSC. The newly designed and calibrated True Tone single coils are fatter and fuller for a remarkable bluesy tone. A vintage style tremolo with a steel block completes the picture. The rest is in your hands.

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
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.
EZ-Access Truss Rod
Born in the workshop as the logical result of simplifying truss rod adjustment, the Levinson EZ-Access neck rod has been a standard feature on Blade® guitars since 1987. By simply removing the Levinson imprinted cover at the 22nd fret the neck rod tension can be adjusted to compensate for seasonal humidity changes affecting your action.
The Variable Spectrum Control (VSC)
The Variable Spectrum Control (VSC) lets you break through traditional tonal boundaries. The user adjustable presets let you change your sound from creamy overdrive to bell-like highs – instantly. All Blade® electronics also have a passive bypass to give you pure vintage tone and ensure that you never run out of power. The Variable Spectrum Control (VSC) Tone Guide (PDF)
