The IC100 is an Iceman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1978. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The IC100 features a mahogany body with contrasting binding bolted to a 3-ply rock maple neck with a 22-fret ebonized rosewood fingerboard with binding and pearloid dot position markers. Components include a Gibraltar fixed bridge, a Quik Change tailpiece, a pair Ibanez Super 80 "Flying Fingers" humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, Sure Grip knobs, and Velve-Tune II machine heads. The output jack is mounted on the face of the guitar.

For 1979 the pickups were changed to uncovered V2 humbuckers and the fretboard inlays were changed to parallelograms.

The IC200 is a related model with a set-in neck and translucent finish.

The IC100 was discontinued after 1980.
