Nice custom case, too! Is it an Ibanez case?

Re: NV(vintage)GD!!! The Iceman Cometh!

Thanks guys....the masking tape on the case from the last owner says original case....he was selling a PS case for it also for an additional 100, but i did not buy that, but it does not say Ibanez on it..not sure if they did back then, but the cutout for the guitar is perfect...it certinaly looks like its the original case...its funny cause he outside of the case is pretty torn up and someone painted a bix AX on it...lol..and on the handle its scribbled Ibanez in like white crayon or something...may try to cover that up, but its soo out there it kinda looks cool too.

Re: NV(vintage)GD!!! The Iceman Cometh!

How is the guitar strap balanced?

As much as I love my SG, truth be known if you let go of it, it points neck down. For whatever reason I had always thought the Iceman shape would not balance well with a strap.

I am not knocking the guitar, its great, just wondering.

The balance is great. No dive. This model has good button placement. Both on the back of the guitar. One at the center of the neck plate and one at the center of the tail.

The model 2663 - the best. I've not seen a black one like that... love it. GREAT SCORE.
