KISS Ace Frehley 1996 Alive Worldwide Reunion Tour Concert Stage Played Gibson Les Paul Smoker Guitar -- If you who grew up with Ace Frehley as your childhood guitar hero, we are about to make your dream come true -- Here's your chance to own Ace's Smoking Guitar! If you saw KISS in concert on the Reunion Tour, then you saw Ace perform with this Les Paul -- It slayed the crowd at Tiger Stadium, Madison Square Garden, LA Forum, Chicago, Monsters of Rock Castle Donington Festival, Philadelphia, New Year's Eve in NJ, Japan, Australia, Europe, etc -- This guitar was played each night, in every city across the planet, during the song Shock Me along with the coinciding guitar solo portion of the concert -- The guitar still has the metal hook on the back of the headstock for the point of Ace's guitar solo when the guitar gets carried into the lighting rig in order for Ace to shoot at it with his Black Les Paul Rocket Guitar. The metal hook also is covering the serial number, but you can further identify the guitar in photos by the wood grain pattern which is the equivalent of a guitar's finger print; no 2 are identical. Since this was a main guitar of the tour, it was heavily photographed during the tour's progression along with being captured within the Alive Worldwide Silver Tour book and Metal Edge All Kiss Magazine Specials. After the Reunion Tour, Ace retired the guitar. Since retirement, the guitar hasn't been played and hasn't been on display; it's been stored safely in its' case within the previous owner's home. Ace personally setup the guitar and it has been that way ever since. As for overall condition, the guitar has all the mileage and battle scars from the Reunion Tour including the area between the top 2 pickups is scorched thru the wood and If you hold the guitar at just the right angle, you can see the indentations on the body's surface from Ace banging on the guitar with his rings to help the smoke embellish the concert stage faster to the delight of the screaming crowd.

A note to the new owner -- Very important -- We are warning you now, do NOT push or tinker with the control knobs on the guitar until you read the enclosed letter Ace wrote -- You might cause serious damage to your home or office if you accidently set off the mechanism.

So are you ready to own a piece of Kisstory? -- Here's what's included.... .

A) 1996 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Cherry Sunburst Les Paul w/ Case containing Kiss Warehouse Inventory Bar Code -- This is a 2 pickup guitar with dummy middle pickup insert glued to the guitar body. .

B) Custom made by Ace cardboard Les Paul body cutout lined with gaffer stage tape that Ace puts behind the guitar inside his costume so the heat coming off the back of the guitar doesn't burn him.

The guitar also comes with a Ace Frehley Signed Certificate of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
