Help me identify this Iceman ?

Hi,

An Ibanez Iceman has come up for sale recently in my area. The only information I have on it are the pictures below.

Can anyone help on what model Iceman this is ? The seller says there's no serial number or country of manufacture on the back of the head stock.

I'm thinking early 90s but I can't Google image an Iceman with those tuners ?

Please help !

PS10II Paul Stanley. Korean. One of my old singers had one back in the day.

Thanks heaps for that, it give's me a direction to work towards...there are just a few little things that don't seem quite right, like maybe it's not genuine.

There's no signature on the truss rod cover, the size of the logo on the head stock and lack of any serial number or country of manufacture on the reverse have me worried.

I already have 12 Ibanez guitars and a decent Iceman has become a bit of a white whale for me...I know it seems like a very obscure model to counterfeit but something about this one has me worried.

Your Pics look too low res on my phone but it surely is a fake of the model Mike posted based on info you just posted. Check the body inlay in person vs real thing posted below. Pickup routing looks unlevel too.

The font used for the signature inlay is a completely different size and there are major quality issues clearly visible.

It's a horrid Chibanez fake.

Re: Help me identify this Iceman ?

I'll be damned. It is fake. I guess I'm so used to seeing fake Jems and RGs that I didn't even consider someone would make a fake Iceman.
I wonder if it's more of a PITA since it's a bigger blank and an odd shape.
Kind of a side note: I always wondered why Nash Kato never got an Iceman sig. I guess the window passed on that one.

Thanks for the help guys - that's what I was worried about, there are a few things that aren't quite right. I just needed someone to agree with me.

I'll give it a pass and my ongoing search shall continue.
