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