The BL825 is a Blazer series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1998. The Blazer series is a line of guitars with styling similar to the Fender Stratocaster.

The BL825 features an alder body bolted to quartersawn hard rock maple multi-radius neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. Components include Ibanez pickups in an HSH configuration, Sperzel locking tuners and a Gotoh non-locking synchronized tremolo bridge. The pickups include coil-split functionality to offer a wide range of single-coil, humbucker or combination tones.

The BL1025 is a similar model with a different bridge and additional neck detailing. The BL840 is a similar model with an HSS pickup configuration.

The BL825 was one of the last new Blazer models to be introduced before the discontinuation of the entire line after 1998.
