Hello! This is Paul Gilbert, and here is the story of this guitar!

This Ibanez "Ice-Stroyer" (Iceman/Destroyer Hybrid), was built by the Ibanez Custom Shop in Bensalem, PA in 1987. Only two were made. This pink one, for me. And an orange one for Bruce Bouillet. I used this guitar for live Racer X shows, for Mr. Big recordings, and on Mr. Big tours. Over the years, I changed the bridge to a fixed bridge, moved the location of the toggle switch, and had a DiMarzio Tone Zone and a DiMarzio single coil pickup installed. The back of the guitar has sushi stickers that I got on my first tour of Japan with Mr. Big back in 1989. And my signature on the headstock is back when I was still signing in script. The tall frets are in excellent condition, and the guitar plays and sounds great!

I will be donating the proceeds from this guitar to Juan Alderete to support his recovery from his injuries from his bicycle accident earlier this year. I co-founded Racer X with Juan. He is a great friend, a great musician, and was instrumental to my career both musically and in the business. He got me out of practicing in my bedroom, and onto the stage! Thank you for your support, and enjoy this amazing guitar from a great era!

Also included in the sale are a vinyl Racer X "Extreme Volume - Live" album (autographed to the buyer), a collection of over 35 of my custom guitar picks, and a JHS PG-14 overdrive pedal (very early model, used on my pedalboard.)
