From the Price Guide


While most early Ibanez guitars were direct copies of Gibson and Fender models, the Iceman represented a distinct effort by the Japanese builder to develop its own innovative design. This guitar launched in 1975 and has since been released in a number of configuration and custom editions. The Iceman was also distributed by Greco as the Mirage in Japan. Starting in 2009, Ibanez offered a reversed version of the Iceman dubbed the Fireman, designed in conjunction with Paul Gilbert.

    The neck is flatter and wider than a Gibson, and flatter than Fender with high frets. Action is low and fast. It's been a while since I heard the stock pickups, but later Ibanez models are pretty hot! Great great guitar, you will never want to play anything else!
