Thin binding, small headstock, and correct headstock inlay -- the Ace Frehley of KISS was one of my favorite guitarists back in the day.
His workhorse guitar during the Alive-era was a early-to-mid 70's Les Paul Deluxe/Standard with Dimarzio pickups.
We recommend that you play what you want and let the "cork sniffers" wring their hands! An early amber Classic with a really nice top (and 1991 serial number), this was a NOS guitar with nary a nick.
This one has a classic sound, is a very well-made guitar, and is a true keeper. This is an interesting instrument because it is almost an Historic Reissue.
When I was living in Virginia in high school I remember seeing a guy in the cool local band playing one of these.
They were called Beyond the Clouds, and they played a bunch of Jeff Beck tunes from the then-new Wired LP. I had always wanted one of these, and I added this guitar in 2008.
A brand new guitar with plastic on the covers, it is really beautiful. This was my main guitar while playing in college, and it always sounded and played great.
Over the years I've installed a Gibson "Dirty Fingers" pickup in the bridge position and a Dimarzio PAF in the neck position.
in Northern Virginia, and continues to be one of my favorites.
While not historically accurate, the P-90 pickups, one-piece mahogany body (beautiful grain), slim neck (no volute), and low, fast frets made this a real bargain.
A Black Beauty, the gold is perfect on this instrument, and I plan to pass it to my son when he gets the fever.
