    Hello everyone,
    looks like Levinson Blade has started making basses again. Check www.bladeguitars.com

    They have 3 models - all jazz like. Their pickups and preamp is pretty high tech so it should have this "modern jazz" sound, or something like that.

    I used to have a Blade B-3 and it was very modern sounding, not as jazz like as many other brands.

    But I'm glad to see they are back in production and really hope to hear from someone that will try them out

    I found a price list in CHF, I don't know if these are discount prices or list prices.
    http://www.levinsonmusic.com/pricelist_blade.html

    B-1 Tetra Standard 1.295 CHF => 840 EUR, 995 USD
    B-2 Tetra 2.395 CHF => 1.555 EUR, 1.842 USD
    B-25 Penta 2.695 CHF => 1.750 EUR, 2.073 USD

    Seems reasonable if these are the same quality as the older ones were.
