They had one at the local Guitar Center. I did not play it but it looked OK to me. I would match the guitar to the kind of music you like to play. I kind of like LP's and Marshall's so that's what I want. I have always wanted a pointy guitar like a B.C. Rich Warlock or something along those lines. I may get one yet.

IT all depends on what sort of noise you wanna make. The Iceman's two humbuckers and mahogany body are gonna make a pretty righteous low-mid chunk rhythm tone, and ought to really scream on high gain leads. But, if you are doing cleaner country, brit-pop, or college rock jangle tunes, you might want to look into something with single coils.

Always remember that you�re unique. Just like everyone else.

Yep, as has been said before, Paul Stanley is its most famous player.

 

It used to be a fairly popular guitar, back in the late 70s.

 

I think it came out of a time when Ibanez had been challenged in court for copying American designs and decided to reinvent themselves as a maker of original guitars.

Soad, the pickups or pups are like microphones sort of. They pick up (get it) the tones from the vibrating strings and (very simplified) send the signals to the amp. Different pups have very definable differences in sound. You will need to do some reading on this matter and try a variety of them. It takes time to get to know what pups you like and don't like. I would tell you to not worry so much. You will likely end up owning several guitars at the same time or different ones over time and can try a variety of pups. If you like distortion, go with the humbuckers at first. You will like them.
