Epiphone Ace Frehley Les Paul Custom


Recommended Posts

Awesome pick up mate, great bargain, beautiful guitar.


Thanks! Did the original Epiphone Ace Frehley have a sold maple top? The original discription said:


"Epiphone's version of Ace's LP Custom features lightning bolt fingerboard inlays and the Ace face and signature on the headstock. Add a multi-bound premium flamed maple top, mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard, and quality chrome-plated hardware"

[thumbup] I have both the early 2000 Epi Ace Les Paul, ( Trans Black ), and the new Epi Budokan,( #182 of 1,000 ), and even though I like them both - the Budokan is a better made guitar. I was disapointed with the neck of the 1st Ace Model; the neck just didn't feel like a true Les Paul neck. I understand that it was based on the Epiphone "Classic" Les Paul Models that they were making at the time - but it does have a rockin' tone - well : that's the DiMarzios for ya. The Budokan is better, in every way. I think now that Epiphone has it's very own factory - quality has gone up and these are guitars to be proud of. I have 4 Epis...love em !
