    I've been a huge fan of Ibanez ever since about 1977 when I got into KISS and fell in love with the Iceman model. I couldn't afford the PS-10 Paul Stanley model and my local store didn't carry any of the Iceman models - but over the next few years I bought several Ibanez guitars that I could afford. I had a Firebird (Gibson) copy (paid $150 for that used), a single pickup Blazer ($100 used), and finally in 1983 I bought a brand new Iceman IC-400 model from Sam Ash Music in New York. I had to borrow my dad's credit card to buy it mail order, but it was worth it and cheaper than the local store quoted me. Alas, I sold it to make some money not long after I bought it.

    About September, 1999 I renewed my passion for collecting Iceman models. I am still looking for the elusive 1982 IC400 that I wish I'd never sold. But with the help of the Internet and auction site I've upped my collection to double digits. I really enjoy buying over the net and have not been burned or had any auction turn out in a bad way. I highly recommend buying this way, just be sure to ask any question you can think of before you buy! And don't be so picky that any rusty screw will throw you into a fit of anger. If you are trying to buy absolute mint guitars, then make sure there is a return policy!

    Here's my collection as of Feb 8, 2000. It will be changing soon as I've decided to focus on my favorite models (set-necks) and sell off the others to help pay for new purchases.
