Very much - could even be the same artist. I see a few common elements, in terms of design and materials.

yeah, i had a bond electra glide with the original case, power supply etc etc in great shape, was from 1985.

needed money. very cool guitar, but not particularly playable for a guy like me who does a lot of bends and OVERbends.. the saw toothed fingerboard sucked monkey balls for playing lead, but was surprisingly good for rhythym for the same reason.

put it on evilbay, bin 1,000. it was gone in seconds. if i'd known a forumite wanted one, i woulda done a much better deal.

as for the power supply, if anyone needs one, the local authorized by bond repair guy, doug carroll, still has the power supplies or can build you one if anyone needs it.

send me a pm. or ask reif or picker or someone to get ahold of me on facebook, where i'm a bit more ubiquitous.

but its a 24volt dc supply needed for the guitar. the guitar signal itself is on the tips, the power on the sleeves if memory serves, but don't quote me on it cuz the thing is lost to the sands of time.

at least it was a guy from the big apple who actually plays his guitar collection (which is vast and has some serious axes in it)

peace

if i get a chance, i'll post a couple other oddballs from my collection. it's kinda slim right now... wait'll ya see the photon zoggittar me and my brother zoggie did back in the early 90's...

started as a tiesco tulip. it got put thru the digital (as in fingers) mole station and ended up vaguely shapped like a drunken octagon.

we figured out a system using of all things sheetrock screws to let you preset stops to catch the strings under behind the nut and behind the bridge. it was easily tunable with a screwdriver, so you could change tunings in the middle of a song if you were slick enough. i came up with the idea cuz back then i used to use a lot of open tunings for slide (never, ever EVER anymore) and with this, you could go from open e to open d or a or g or c or my fav (don't try this at home kids) low to hi g(up from e) c (up from a) e (up from g) open g, b e. that way i could play minor or major chord inversions with some handy parallel 4ths and stuff in various spots on the neck. sometimes i'd raise the b to c. that was where the idea came from...
how to make one pos guitar have as many easily accessible tunings as possible.
once ya did it a couple times, it got pretty easy. and it looked cool... like a guitar version of pinhead from hellraiser...

weird planet, huh?

The guitar designers on this site need to find a dealer who isn't laicing their stuff with LSD.

I've wanted this particular Iceman model since even before I started playing guitar; it was featured in the first Ibanez catalog I ever picked up at a long-gone local guitar store:

What amazes me is not so much that such a quantity of, uh, stuff, exists all in one collection, but that so much of it is already sold.
