    Arrived a few days ago a 1978 Ibanez Iceman.
    Basically all original apart the strap buttons and truss rod cover.
    I spent most of the arvo yesterday polishing all the chrome, waxing the body and then setting it up.

    Not a huge fan of Paul, only the Iceman. I prefer the regular Les paul layout for the controls compared to what he’s done with it.

    Thanks though!

    Icemans (Icemen?) are cool guitars. I'm not a big Kiss guy either, but always though J. from White Zombie's custom Iceman was very cool. Yours looks like it's in pretty good shape. What are those pickups in it? I'm not familiar with Ibanez humbuckers. The flat covers are a cool look.

    Daron Malakian got me into the Iceman.
    It’s not bad considering the age of it.
    The pickups are the stock Flying Fingers pickups.
    I think they’re Super 80’s, is another name for them? Not sure.
