look what I bought (iceman content)

IC-500, the rarest of all I think.


1994, didn't appear in catalog.

MIJ, mahogany, maple top, mahogany set neck, abalone dots, gibralter bridge, pearloid binding, nice HSC.

This is what J from White Zombie used before the IC100JWZ.

got in on ebhey for $410. It's shipping out today.

I had one in my hands at guitar center for $399 last year. I went back a day later after I confirmed I had money. It was gone.

I vowed to avenge my loss. I had to have the least talked about, rarest, best deal of an iceman anywhere.

It was never in the Ibanez catalogs here in the USA. I have the '94 catalog. I only heard about it back then because J. had it in an Ibanez ad in guitar world.

Oh... I first saw this iceman series in the 98 catalog but it isn't a IC500 though it's IC300 without the pickguard what's the difference between those two besides the pickguard

ic 300's are basswood, bolt-ons made in Korea.

ic 500's are mahogany/maple, set in, inlayed, made in japan.
