And don't say liquid nitrogen or the side of the moon that always faces away from the sun—although you could say the Dark Side of the Moon, but that’s another story.
We are talking “cool” of a different kind, as in total Rock & Roll...Cool. Oh yeah.
And the ultimate of ultra-cool has to be this Icon Classic in Ice Blue.
Not marooned in 1954, yesterday and the eminence of today completely meld into the best playing and sounding guitar on this planet (or its moon—dark side or not).
The Icon’s styling is iconic—hence its name. Ha. You probably knew that already.
But then…strap in and be amazed. With limitations removed, huge tones ring forth, even unplugged. Boundless bending in concordance with the fastest, smoothest playability ever, ever. Chords sound even bigger and more impressive as Icon renderers them in tune and robust beyond belief. Nimble to hold and to play—all night long—super comfortable. And to top it off, a vast array of pickups from which to choose, all under the command of simple but extremely versatile switching that does not leave you isolated from any sonic combinations you desire.
So then...what's cooler than this Icon Classic in Satin Ice Blue? Well, nothin'...except for being kind to everyone you meet—not because you have to but because you want to.
Other than that…?
But before we go, you need to know where or where this Icon has gone. Hidden in the pictures is a clue. Imagine this Icon amped through a big Mesa rig and pumped through one of their 4x12s. A wall of iconic Icon sound is a guarantee. The Mesa/Boogie Factory Store, a fitting place to find it.
