    The bass looks awesome.... I went to Youtube and listened to the band, Arch Enemy. I'm not familiar with them. Evidently the bass player's name is Sharlee and it was built to his specs.

    Man, that woman lead vocalist has a voice deeper than most guys lol... Could you imagine waking up to that voice in the morning saying, good morning honey... yikes :eek:... lol

    If you get this bass let us know how it turns out... Looks totally awesome...
  3. I few years ago i had what was basicaly a standard production model of that iceman, was white, had the same pickups, same neck. It sounded ok, but it had some pretty hefty neckdive and overall wasnt that comfortable to play. I think this is one of those examples of a company taking a guitar design and slapping the bass treatment on it, with the results being less than spectacular.

    At the very least, I would highly recommend trying on before buying.
  4. Finally, the best bass for metal has been found!:bag:

    This one also come in white as well, but is factory strung C, F, bB, bE and sports monorail bridge instead of AccuCast200.

    Yes... Neither the IceMan300, nor the Sharlee d'Angelo signature (he plays in Spiritual Beggars too) capture the mood of the IceMan700 electric guitar:meh:

    Any ideas of where (China, Korea, Japan?) Ibanez builds this NT version of the Iceman? Any info on what strings come stock on it for that tuning? For me to be in sync with my basses, I would be dropping the tuning to BEAD anyways, and usually requires a 5 string set.

    I wish string companys would catch on an sell a BEAD seat of strings.....

    Personally, I like it except for the Iron Cross inlays........Directly copied from Gibson's Nikki Sixx Thunderbird.

    Warwick Black Label strings are available in a BEAD set, as well as a F#BEA set. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

    Same here. Not feeling the indie bridge saddles, either.

    Looks like a Nikki Sixx Blackbird mated with a Paul Stanley Iceman. Playing both Ibanezes and Gibson Tbirds, I like it - but wish it had a 1.5" nut. The Iron Cross inlays are a bit of a rip off, but at least they aren't just dots.

    Just a dirty looking beast of a bass with a dirty sound. Not for the purist. Still putting it through the passes.

  15. What's the verdict--do you like it?

    I just put an older Iceman bass on layaway.
