You need to be real KISS fan to appreciate this chunk of guitar player history. It's a Les Paul with a punch in the face of Ace. Loud, heavy, expensive and cool as all get out! Chrome back plates and covers, chrome truss rod cover, Ace all over the place. Plays like a Les Paul. Mine was wired funky. The true Ace guitar didn't even include a working neck pickup. Mine was wired wrong but since fixed. Like his, it now is inoperable.
