Watch Joe Bonamassa Shred on a Vintage Striped Charvel

Posted on December 9th, 2014 by MDuffy


Blues master Joe Bonamassa certainly knows how to pass the time when he’s hanging out before a live show. During a recent stop in Greenville, S.C., in support of his new album, Different Shades of Blue, Bonamassa pulled out a vintage Charvel guitar that was inspired by the striped instruments Eddie Van Halen made famous, posting an impromptu jam on his Facebook wall.

“Here is some a backstage partying with an original 1978 Charvel black-and-yellow stripe guitar just like Mr Van Halen’s,” Bonamassa wrote in the video’s description. “No red M&Ms, no dancing girls, just a bunch of Diet Cokes and reverb.”

Guitar World Demos the Jake E Lee Signature Model

Posted on December 3rd, 2014 by MDuffy


Paul Riario of Guitar World recently ran through one of the Charvel Jake E Lee signature model guitars and noted that it was one of his favorite new releases of 2014.

The axe is based on the distinctive white “Charvel-ized” instrument the former Ozzy Osbourne and Badlands guitarist has played ever since he bought it new back in 1975.

“If you’ve been a fan of Jake E Lee, then this part guitar is a no-brainer,” said Riario. “But if you just like a no-nonsense guitar that is performance enhanced, this is the model to check out. It’s certainly one of my faves.”

Check out the demo after the jump.  (more…)

Posted on November 19th, 2014 by MDuffy


Chasing Safety recently released a video for the track “Far Away,” which comes off the band’s debut full-length album, Season of the Dead.

The clip shows footage of the Cherry Hill, N.J., hardcore merchants roaring through “Far Away” while a tie-wearing man seems to be losing his grip on sanity. Adding to the intensity is a healthy dose of jerky-jerky camera cuts that really keep the viewer on edge.
