So recently I've been really wanting a guitar with a fixed bridge that wasn't a fucking RG as I have far too many RG's with locking trems, I'd been toying with the idea of a Les Paul but I've just not been able to find one that I liked enough to justify the price, the notable exception being a really rather nice gold top that I couldn't afford anyway :lol:.

But aside from Les Pauls I've had my eye on getting an Iceman, since it has a fixed bridge and certainly isn't a bloody RG! I was waiting till the new shipment of Ibby ICT700's rolled up in the UK so I could grab one, but this this beauty came up in the same city as me:







Might take some more pictures tomorrow, if the weather is okay.

I forgot how fun it is to be able to change tunings on a whim and as an added bonus it came with locking tuners :yesway: it plays a lot better than the majority of Les Paul's I'd been looking at.

Only thing that needed doing to it was a new set of strings (read: heavier strings), though I see new pickups in this things future and I'm thinking Duncans, any advice would be great as I'm a Dimarzio guy normally and am clueless on what sounds good from SD. :p

I assume with the 6505+ your a high gain guy? S/D Distortions are my go to. Nice guitar - classic looking love that head stock too.

Take it you didn't notice the Engl below it? :lol:

Awesome score dude, I've been pondering the fuck out of an Iceman for years, one thing I'd love to own, but not drop cash on :lol:

No, since it was obvious only there to have something to set the 5150 on. :yesway:

Sick, if only those came in 7 string flavor.

Cheers guys, the Duncan Distortion was one of the ones I was looking at as well as a 59 in the neck, someone also suggested a JB to me, any thoughts?

Is it mahogany?

You pretty much can't go wrong with a JB in mahogany. I believe a Distortion is basically a ceramic JB, it's certainly similar with tighter bass and more grunt.
