Inspired by the classics and designed for the needs of the contemporary guitarist, BLADE® announces the expansion of the Dayton Series. Following the dictate of "form follows function", the Dayton is a definitive expression of comfort enhancing ergonomics, perfect balance and pure tone. A North American alder body and maple neck build the tonal chassis. The Dayton Standard (DAS-1) is adorned with a vintage-colored pickguard mounted with Blade's VS-1 single coil and new LP-92 Soapbar. The new Dayton Deluxe (DAS-2) sports the same fine build characteristics of the Dayton Standard with the fatter, thicker tone of two Alnico 4 based humbuckers mounted on a custom brushed aluminium pickguard.
