The IC520SM is an Iceman series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2014. It was made in China as part of the X series.
The IC520SM features a bound spalted maple top with creme binding on a mahogany body mated to a mahogany set-in neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and parallelogram position markers. Components include a fixed bridge and tailpiece and dual DiMarzio humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls.
The IC520 is a similar model without the spalted maple top.
In the USA the IC520SM was available exclusively from Texas retailer Hermes Music.
The IC520SM was discontinued in 2016.
