Joe Pinnavaia: Ibanez Blazer BL 50MH Series Demo

Ibanez Blazer Series Demo - BL 50MH -

Hey guys!
Just going through my guitars and demoing them starting with the 80's. I know these guitars are not thousands of dollars but they have Mojo. Plus they are the best value out there for a 32 year old instrument. They are also well made.

This guitar is in great shape with minimal wear and I had to replace the Brass nut but other than that it's a great player - some fret buzz but ever since summer hit here it needs a setup. The pickups are super 70's from what I can tell once I get a coil tap on it I can check for sure.

Effects line:
Apogee Duet
Logic 8
Red Wire Marshal 1960A Cab IR

Hope you enjoy,

Christie Lenée: tour update and live video with engle!

I've been soaking up the sun in the Pacific Northwest enjoying the vibrant colors of sweet summertime. Portland is truly a paradise this time of year so it's been a nice relaxing few days... "relaxing" for me meaning practicing, writing, gardening, catching up on business work (while tanning) and doing a lot of yoga. I'm now completely recharged and ready to launch the summer tour!

I hope you had a great 4th of July and the opportunity to see fireworks. I told a friend yesterday that Independence Day can be everyday... the celebration of our right to choose. So my theme for the holiday is to expand, be all you can be, and set free within yourself!

Tonight I'll be continuing Independence Day Celebration at The Gemini in Lake Oswego for a live acoustic show. This beautiful venue just renovated the stage with new lights and an upgraded sound system so I'm excited to return there and play. Music goes from 9pm-12am Tonight @


456 N State St, Lake Oswego, OR 97034


Opening for Marcus Eaton at The White Eagle, 9pm

836 N Russell St, Portland, OR 97227

- Marcus and I are two of the only guitarists who have played on stage beside Tim Reynolds, the guitarist for Dave Matthews Band for his original project TR3. As most of you know, Tim and I have played quite a bit together and he has always spoken worlds of Marcus. This will be the first time that Marcus and I have finally gotten to connect for a show so I assure you it will be something special. Expect some jamming and a fun night of celebration before my departure the following day!

NEXT: SUMMER TOUR LAUNCH Starting at Summer NAMM in Nashville!
July 11th-14th

* I will be showcasing for the Engle, a drumstick for guitar. It is an honor to be the signature artist for this revolutionary product! Here is a video link for a sample of The Engle:
