is ICEMAN comfortable to play?

I know it looks super cool and sounds good because of the construction. but is it easy to play compared to,let's say, an explorer?

never played one, but id figure its easier than an Explorer (which i did have) since its shape is closer to "normal"...

Re: is ICEMAN comfortable to play?

It depends whether you mean to play standing or sitting down really.

I've got one I've had for years and I love it but it's not a well-balanced guitar to play standing up.It tends to be a bit neck-heavy.
Apart from that it is pretty comfortable.They've got a contour cut-away at the back so it doesn't bruise your ribs like an Explorer can.

I've got a pair of EMG's in mine and it sounds great!

It'll never be as comfortable as my RG's or a Jem to play but I still wouldn't be without it.
