Gibson Ace Frehley Budokan Custom Les Paul Electric Guitar
Gibson Ace Frehley Budokan Custom Les Paul Electric Guitar. Made in 2012 but in new condition. Awesome sounding guitar as you would expect from Ace Frehley and Kiss. Great investment/collector’s piece.
One of the most coveted Les Paul Customs of the 1970s with triple Dimarzio pickups.
Epitomizing the rock concert as spectacle in the 1970s. KISS merged infectious metal riffs and glam-rock imagery more fully than any band to strut the stage. The glitz, makeup and pure musical fury climaxed in 1977 when KISS, having just been named the most popular band in America in a Gallup poll, flew to Japan to perform five sold-out shows at the legendary Budokan arena, breaking the record of four capacity concerts that was held by The Beatles.
The Gibson Ace Frehley Budokan Custom Les Paul. Crafted with the traditional ingredients of the Les Paul Custom circa the early to mid-1970s. Then a Grade-A maple top is joined to a Grade-A mahogany body that is weight relieved to reduce the load and enhance depth. This classic tonewood gives you the blend of maples snap. Articulation with mahogany depth and warmth, cornerstones of the legendary Les Paul sound. Also a Seven-ply white-and-black body binding enhances the Custom, as do the necks acrylic Pearloid block markers and the headstocks multi-ply binding and split-diamond inlays.
