All I know is what I read in the late 80's in some guitar mag, that Blade guitars were strat copies made by some Swiss guy assembling quality components. But that was way back then. For all I know its now all made in China using forced labor. Try using google or harmony-central.com.

Jaime Moses, currently touring with Queen as their rhythm guitarist, plays one regularly. It's more full sounding than a Strat. Pretty good picture here: http://www.queenconcerts.com/inc/ins...005_fender.jpg

Queen (or should I say Brian May) using a rhythm guitarist? Whats next? Female backing vocalists, a brass section and a full orchestra underneath the stage?

Brian's used Jamie since his 1993 Back to the Light tour... he's pretty good though I would argue a little superfluous on the Q+PR tour (Spike's keyboards/guitar fill out the sounds plenty). And ironically, Brian also used female backing vocalists from 1992-1998.

As for the rest of that, you must be thinking of The Who :-)
