"W.A.S.P.уs guitarist Douglas Blairуs late у70s Japanese Les Paul copy puts the danger back into dangerous when it comes to playing heavy music. Dubbed the Blade IIяBlair has another rip saw blade-equipped Japanese Les Paul-style guitar dubbed Blade Iяit boasts a custom-engineered, gold-anodized aluminum rip saw blade that spins atop its face, with oversized, wave-shaped teeth. The blade turns clockwise or counterclockwise and is controlled by a bezel-mounted control switch. Other custom appointments include a nut clamp, rear belly contour, bolted-in Gibson humbuckers, a 6-way pickup selector, and a removed heel. This LP copy has a cherry red finish over a book-matched flame maple veneer that covers a chunky, solid mahogany bodyяalmost 3.5"" thick in its center. The large mahogany neck has a scalloped rosewood fretboard."
