You Sir, have the best signature like ever!
schecter necks arnt for everyone. And I doubt you'd need to replace the pups, they are probably the same as the EMGs in your iceman if not better (the 89 is the coil tappable 85 if im right)

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.
Better get the Schecter V-1 Blackjack ATX FR, it has floyd rose (original) and SD Blackouts

I agree.

And I would think about maybe getting a new amp instead, your new guitar might not shine through that MG.



I think a new amp would improve your tone a lot more than that guitar. To be quite frank, I don't see how that guitar is an upgrade from your Iceman. It is just (arguably) prettier, but not better.
