It sounds pretty awesome to me. I was going for a Gretsch vibe, and while that vibe is definitely there it's not quite Gretsch (if I threw some TV Jones pups in it, it would prolly be closer) but as it stands I really digg it. Very Twangy and rootsy sounding. Can easily pull double duty with rockabilly and surf. Throw a little OD and all three pups on and it does a really cool 60's Garage. The low E is a little too bassy tho, and not as twangy as the rest, got a look into remedying that.
As a huge fan of the Iceman shape, that thing looks freakin' awesome! Nice job, man :thu: How's the sound? Having only ever tried the standard Icemans, I'd be interested to see what sort of tones you could get out of one with less insane pickups.

sweet ass guitar man...great minds indeed. something about large shiny hardware just does it for me. not usually a big fan of gold, but it really works here. love it.
We think alike. I happy with the existing pickups, plenty twangy. Roller Bridge and B5 added 2008 Epi Korina Explorer

You Iceman rules! I love it! Thanks for the compliments on the Exp. Some TV Jones would be killer, but other than that I'm leaving the stock pickups. I dont know if its the pickups or the wood, or some combination of the two, but these are not your ordinary Epi humbuckers. Sound of them was a big reason I bought the guitar. Yes they have that crunch you would expect, but they clean up so nicely. The roller bridge took just a tiny amount of sustain away which brought out their clean properties even more. I'm not usually a gold fan either, but since this guitar was already that way, I just went with it. Envisioned the thing as my "alt" country guitar. With the Bigsby, its turned into a surf monster.
bolt on...i actually prefer them. and no, unfortunately im not cool enough to have done the finish. bought the guitar 8 years or so on ebay simply because of the finish. damn thing never worked (wiring inside was a nightmarish rats nest with electrical tape galore) but i could tell it played really well. nah i just replaced all the hardware, and wired it up. first project guitar, so not to shabby i think. sweet ass guitar man...great minds indeed. something about large shiny hardware just does it for me. not usually a big fan of gold, but it really works here. love it.
