10 May 2007 — Currently celebrating the company’s 20th anniversary, Blade Guitars’ Gary Levinson has produced the new California Climax. Featuring a hand-rubbed oil finish on North American alder, this allows the wood to breathe while giving it a distinctly lived-in look. The result is a very light and resonant instrument whose satin finished maple neck adds to this natural ‘pre-played’ feel while avoiding stickiness, even under the hottest stage lights. Boasting a hard tail bridge, the new California Classic has a single LH-4 humbucker to enhance attack and sustain, with additional power and presence provided by two VS-1 single coil pickups mounted in a vintage cream pickguard, adding cutting bell-like highs. Another feature is the VSC-3 Variable Spectrum control for improved tonal versatility. Supplied with an ultralight, high impact case, the California Climax is a available in a number of oiled finishes including Very Violet, Rubbed Red, Brushed Blue and Totally Natural.

With WeImprovise! I set out to build a different kind of promotion & discovery platform — supportive, expansive, & inclusive, for music, musicians (students, performers, educators, & researchers), and the wide-ranging industry that supports music worldwide.
The focus is jazz, blues, & roots-folk-world music — incidentally the music that feeds pop & rock creativity — along with the inclusion of cultural & sociological aspects without which the music cannot truly be engaged with.
What you see is the beginning, a proof of concept to demonstrate possibilities and inspire ideas.
