ok. Well ive been wanting to get my hands on some type of iceman guitar (influenced by non other than Daron Malakian).

I love the sound of pretty much all of them.

Im looking for peoples oppinions on the

IC-200

IC-300

IC-400

and the new ICT-700

Im gonna try to get one of them off of ebay if the right price comes along (and i have enough money lol).

And im planning on getting it custom painted like Daron Malakians old signature

http://www.mtv.com/news/photos/o/ozzfest_060307_comp/WEb_Ready/32.jpg

any suggestions?

ALSO would it be possible to get it custom painted like that, if the guitar is completely black (like the ic-400)

thanks in advance!

Generally the original color doesn't matter, as the guitar will be sanded down before it's painted.

the new one has neck thru......... which is more than i can say for the others... plus it has dimarzio's in it........

my old ic400bk is still a beast tho....... i play it more than my jackson.... which i never thought would happen..........

thanks =).

I guess he just has different knobs then.

Anyways, what do you guys think I should get?

Save up and get an ic-400 off ebay or craigslist? or just go broke for an ICT-700?

going for the ICT-700 would be back breaking for me to get enough cash (im pretty sure it costs 650$) considering im only 14.

I wouldn't bother with the ICT-700 if you're into the "proper" Iceman.
The IC-400 is what everyone (Iceman fans at least) knows and loves!
I wouldn't go for anything other to be honest.

Though the others are probably fine, to me the only one that looks right is the 400.

Uh, no. I live in Australia, but I look on Craigslist every now and then anyway. I do the same with eBay.
#14
well, I guess im gonna go for the ic-400 unless somebody says other wise.

Since ibanez discontinued them and stores dont sell them any more.

Do you guys have any ideas on a place to buy one? (I already know, ebay, craigslist) thats about it.
#15
dude the ict700 has the DiMarzio D activators which are awsome pick ups

way better than the 400's

good clean sound
even better distortion sound

im buying that one
#16
I still think im gonna go for the 400, for the fact that the clean on it is one of the best sounds ive ever heared on a guitar.

HAHA I freakin love your avvie btw.

Plus its a lot cheaper, im only 14 and I have no job lol so yeah..
#17
You know Daron uses a SG 61 reissue now, right?

(That actually is not the reason I use one, I set eyes on it before I knew he used them).

I used to own a IC-400, and it was a very good guitar, but the frets were finished rather poorly.

Daron uses ic300/ic200 custom, which you cant get in any store....he never used a ic400(ive done my research =D)...and the ict700 is a freakin awesome guitar, i have one =D.

daron gets his custom made
he puts gibson les paul standard pickups in his ic200 or ic300
but he never had an ic400.

i do though, and trust me its amazing

ok, well im planning on getting an IC-300, ive done my research and it seems like this one is the best quality, plus they're the ones daron uses (as mentioned above).

The only reason I thought that the model in the picture I posted was an IC-400 is because it had four knobs, I guess he added two more =).

I plan to custom paint my IC-300 im buying, add a kahler tremolo, maybe add another tone knob, totally pimp it out pretty much.

Ill make progress pictures in the customization section =)

i have an ict-700!! But all iceman models are just great, but i think ict-700 has so brilliant neck, that it is the best one...
