Home to the Arlington Guitar Show, Arlington is slowly gaining on Austin as the live music capital of Texas and now home to the Dream City Blues Festival. Arlington has been caught up in the power of the blues.

The Sceptre Arlington is steeped in this tradition. It is a guitar of a 1000 voices - it sings, snaps, snarls and bites. The Arlington body has the hard edge form so strongly associated with this instrument with a belly cut on the back to reduce weight and increase playing comfort.

All Sceptre guitars feature a dual action truss rod for an optimal set up and the Levinson neck profile - comfortable and fast to play. Its amber satin finish glides under your hand and the profile fits your hand perfectly in any playing position.

The pickups are custom wound for balance and bite. The neck pickup is overwound for punch and great balance with the bridge pickup in the chunky middle position. The bridge pickup has the power to cut through with brightness and solid midrange.

I love this style guitar, which might be the reason there are five models of Blade Delta! I’m sure you’ll love it too.


The North American alder body gives the Arlington Standard a warm bite with balanced mids to accent the brightness. The North American hard maple neck is available with either a black walnut or maple fingerboard has a 240mm/9.5” radius and a real bone nut. The Levinson pickups are a balance set with ALNICO 5 magnets. The T-E1N neck pickup is fat and full and the T-E1B give you the classic bite and is wound on a fiber bobbin with a brass base plate.

The Arlington Standard has a Wilkinson WOT03 bridge with individual saddles for great intonation and attack.

Put some twang in your step!
