Single volume and tone controls. The bladerunner model was designed by David Newell and Andrew Desrosiers of Cohoes, NY (David Andrew Design Research).

David Newell and Andrew Desrosiers (my brother) were NOT from California. They were from Cohoes NY. David currently lives in FL, my brother "Drew" passed away from cancer in 2012. He left Bladerunner serial "2 to his children.


Your brother Drew was a wonderful guy and a good friend. He and I built a bass at his place in Cohoes in the early 80s that I still have to this day. My deepest condolences to you and to his family.
