Introducing Blade’s flagship 30th Anniversary Edition of the iconic ‘RH-4’, from the esteemed ‘Blade’ guitars, founded by industry icon Gary Levinson.
In 1987 Mr Levinson set forth to create his own range of guitars focussing on the highest integrity build, alongside the most innovative developments. Later that year, Blade guitars were unveiled to expectant eyes and ears at the Tokyo Music Show, and the rest, as they say…is history.
Fast forward to the present day, and the results of Gary’s unwavering commitment to building the finest quality guitars, full of revolutionary innovations are plain to see in guitars such as this, the Blade ‘RH-4’. The ‘RH-4’ features a show-stopping ‘Misty-Violet’ finish, truly prestigious components and the ground-breaking ‘Variable Spectrum Control (VSC). The VSC hugely versatile means of shaping the guitars tone, Adjustable Tension Guide (ATG), and other innovations such as the ‘EZ Access Neck Rod’ for quick and simple access to the truss rod.
This is a truly professional guitar, steeped in prestige, for the guitarist who seeks killer tones, show-stopping looks and flawless playability! The ‘RH-4’ has modern features, functionalities and a gorgeous aesthetic, but with a classic vibe that feels inexplicably familiar when you pick up this spectacular guitar. The ‘RH-4’ from Blade is the definitive manifestation of comfort-enhancing ergonomics, ingenuity, show-stopping looks, perfect balance and unmatched tone.
The original Blade – a modern classic since 1987. This exquisite instrument is immediately recognizable by the sepia-coloured mirror pickguard and superb finish. The noiseless V-3 single coils give you great tone and punch – but without the hum. The LH-55 is the Levinson classic humbucker for warmth and fatness, while not losing high-end clarity. The Variable Spectrum Control Tone Enhancement allows you enormous tonal variation: jazz, blues, rock country – it’s all there. You will not want to put it down.

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 a pure vintage tone and ensure that you never run out of power.
Tapered Neck Joint
Enjoy better access to the upper registers with the tapered neck joint for more comfort and speed.
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.
This patented tremolo looks, feels and sounds like a vintage-style unit but incorporates a patented double block system that also allows up-trem 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 trem’s cannot do. Even deep bends against open strings are possible – the open strings do not detune. Now that’s style.
Push-Push Humbucker Split
No need to grab anything to split your humbucker. Simply tap the tone pot and you’re done. Easy and reliable.
