You are looking at a Gibson Custom Ace Frehley 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS Electric Guitar, serial number AF 061. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 9.0 oz.)

Few artists have been consistently associated with one guitar as Ace Frehley has been with the Les Paul. He is known worldwide as one of the Les Paul guitar's most recognizable players as well as one of rock's greatest icons. From the moment KISS arrived on the scene, Ace was brandishing a Les Paul and has developed a permanent association with this iconic guitar.

A stunning tribute to Ace Frehley's original famed '59 'Burst, the Ace Frehley 1959 Les Paul Standard from Gibson Custom faithfully re-creates this legendary 'Burst with painstaking accuracy. From vintage-correct hardware and appointments to a thin wet-sanded nitro lacquer "Dirty Lemon Frehley 'Burst" finish and everything in between, the Ace Frehley 1959 Les Paul Standard brings you closer than ever before to owning one of the most widely recognized '59 'Bursts ever made. This Gibson Custom Ace Frehley 1959 Les Paul Standard, serial number AF 061, is an unsigned model with a smooth vintage VOS finish.

The Gibson Custom Ace Frehley 1959 Les Paul Standard sports an authentic double-carved figured maple top over a hand-selected lightweight mahogany back. For vintage looks with classic tone and construction to match, the top showcases True Historic Reissue cream binding and is attached to the back with period-correct hide glue adhesive.

The double-carved mahogany neck sports an accurate 1959 Les Paul neck profile and is hand-sanded for superb playability and comfort. The 12"-radius solid Indian rosewood fingerboard features rolled True Historic Reissue cream binding for a smooth feel in your fretting hand while aged nitrocellulose trapezoid inlays and tortoise shell side dots add to the classic 'Burst aesthetic. The neck also boasts other period-accurate features including a nylon nut, 1959 True Historic Thin peghead veneer with an aged Gibson logo, a reissue neck joint with hot hide glue adhesive, and a historic reissue truss rod cover with no tubing.

The Ace Frehley 1959 Les Paul Standard comes equipped with a pair of PAF-style Custom Bucker (Alnico III) and Burst Bucker #3 (Alnico V) pickups to dish out a healthy serving of 'Burst-certified tones. Aside from just delivering all of that vintage-approved PAF bite and growl you crave, these pickups also look the part thanks to True Historic Replica VOS nickel covers, which were designed and engineered with the originals in mind.

Through molecular level analysis of the originals, Gibson Custom was able to replicate the original plastics with unparalleled accuracy. These period-correct plastics include a '59 True Historic pickguard, a True Historic truss rod cover, True Historic gold top hat knobs with dial pointers, a reissue Les Paul .09 Black Royalite control plate, and True Historic Cream Replica trim rings and switch washer. The nickel-plated hardware includes a set of Grover Kidney tuning machines and a classic pairing of an ABR thumbwheel bridge with a reissue lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece. A special 2015 Die Cast Gibson Custom Medallion switch cover plate rounds out the hardware.

The Gibson Custom Ace Frehley 1959 Les Paul Standard comes complete with a reissue brown hardshell case with pink fur lining, a Custom Shop True Historic Certificate of Authenticity in binder, and an extra black plastic Treble/Rhythm switch cover plate.

With only 250 of these legendary '59 'Bursts available in a Vintage Gloss finish, now is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on an important piece of Rock 'N' Roll history.
