    It might have been an older Iceman. Ibanez made them for a few years in the 90's but has just within the past year brought them back. I'd maybe buy one just to hotrod it. Do a search for "Iceman."

    In the early 90's Ibanez released an Iceman bass for the first time even though the Iceman guitar has been around since the early 70's. There were two models one with a set neck and one with a bolt on neck and I believe that they were only available in black (but I could be wrong). Ibanez has recently re-released the Iceman in a Brownish wood color with dot inlays and gold hardware for about $399. I think I just recently saw that either Guitar Center or Muscians Friend was selling them. Cool looking bass.
