and I'm using kind words. I don't dislike him personnaly because I don't know him.
but it is appauling that he himself would do this on the heels of a true rock star Ace frehely.
How can he promote himself as the spaceman this is an imposter. and you give him his
own guitar. especially after you just released the Ace budokan.
come on this is a disgrace.
I have been a big supporter of gibson for years I own SG,explorer,ace epi.Joan jett.
the Signiture guitars are for musicians that have made a major contribution to the music world.
and have been unique individuals.like gibson itself.not copy cats.
I have never been so compelled to right in to a forum. to dissaprove of this Thayer guitar
it is not right to take new fans as idiots and fool them into buying guitars from an imposter.
I am dissapointed in gibson and epiphone for doing this type of thing

A disgrace? I hardly think so.
Ace is one of my favorite guitar players. But it doesn't bother me a bit that Tommy is getting his own sig guitar.
Do you really think it bothers Ace a single bit? Probably not.
Relax dude, it's not the end of the world.

he didn't create that and dont put a photo of him in Ace makeup .
I guess its all about the money because no one would know who he
was without the make up.
why don't they make other sig models in epiphone of new and old artists
that are influentcial

Albert Collins is a HUGELY influential guitarist, but I don't ever expect to see an AC signature model. That guy from Blink 182 gets a signature model because he's popular and can sell guitars, even though he hasn't influenced s**t.

As for the guitar, I kinda like it, not because it's a signature guitar, but I like flashy guitars. I don't plan on buying one, but if I did I would change the truss rod cover and anything else that would make it a Tommy Thayer guitar, and it would have to be cheap

Personally, I just have never seen the allure of "signature" models anyway,
But they must have an attraction because between Fender and Gibson alone, the list of Sig. models has increased every time you turn around..
