The IC50 is an Iceman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 1979. It was made in Japan by FujiGen.

The IC50 features a laminated mahogany body mated to a 3-ply birch neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot position markers. Components include a Gibraltar fixed bridge, Quik Change tailpiece, a pair of uncovered Ibanez Super 70 humbucking pickups, speed knobs, and Smooth Tuner machine heads. The output jack is mounted on the face of the guitar.

For 1981 the pickup selector was moved to the upper bout.

This IC50 was discontinued after 1981. A new Iceman II model with the same name was offered in 1982.
