The IC400 is an Iceman II series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1982. It was made in Japan by FujiGen with production starting in late 1981.

The IC400 features a flame maple top on a basswood body mated to a set-in 3-ply maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with split block position markers. Components include a Gibraltar fixed bridge, Quik Change tailpiece, a pair Ibanez humbucking pickups with a covered Super 58 at the neck and an uncovered V2 with white bobbins at the bridge, Sure Grip knobs, and Smooth Tuner II machine heads. The output jack is mounted on the side of the guitar.

The IC50 is a related model without the flame maple top, and with a different neck pickup and chrome hardware.

A total of 280 IC400s were produced — 28 in late 1981 and 252 in 1982.[1]

This IC400 was discontinued after 1982 along with the Iceman II line. The Iceman body shape wouldn't return to the lineup until 1992.
