UNRESERVED. Serial#: 1961424. In the image of Ace's original guitar, the Ace Frehley Les Paul Custom from Gibson USA comes with three period-correct, double-cream DiMarzio Super Distortion pickups for maximum. To maximize the sonic versatility of the traditional three-way toggle switch and four-knob control section, the guitar is wired to select the neck pickup alone in the switch's upper position, both middle and bridge pickups in the middle position (sharing the lower volume and tone controls), and bridge pickup alone in the lower position. Hardware includes the classic pairing of chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. Other features include lightning bolt inlays on the fretboard, a trussrod cover etched with Ace's signature and an ace of hearts playing card, and finally Ace's iconic face in his full KISS makeup on the headstock under the Gibson logo. This is not the recent "Budokan" model but rather the earlier, first Gibson USA version of the Ace Frehley Les Paul.
This cherry sunburst guitar is signed by Ace himself in black ink and dated 2002. Frehley also provided two other sketched images in black ink, that of the ace of hearts playing card and a planet orbited by three stars.
