I own 22 guitars. They run the full gamet of vintage and modern from Gibson Les Paul Customs to Fender teles, to Jacksons, Ibanez, and ESP and from $6000 to $600. I have never, I repeat, never played a guitar better than the two Epiphone signature models I just purchased. I own the Joe Perry Boneyard and this Ace Frehley edition. My Silverburst Les Paul Custom (Gibson 1984) with original PAF pickups doesn't in any way outshine either of these two beauties. They are tonally superior to every Jackson and ESP I have. Unbelievable tone and sustain accompanies any Epiphone signature model. I have played the Zakk Wylde Les Paul too. It is also wonderful, but not quite as artist authentic as the Joe Perry or Ace Frehley. Do yourself a favor, and ignore the impulse to save for the Gibson headstock and buy one of these signature models. You won't regret it.

I have played "Lead Guitar" for more than 20 years. I own a first edition model of this guitar. It is beautiful, and sounds great, but the quality of this guitar is not what it should be. The action won't adjust as low as a "quality guitar" should, either. Do not pay list price for this guitar. Don't get me wrong, I like the guitar. I'd just like it more if I paid less, what it's actually worth!

Great guitar...with a little help.

By Phaser Junkie

from Montana

What a guitar! Two things occurred within a couple of weeks that made me think that I got ripped off. 1) The strap buttons ripped out while I was playing a show; 2) The ABR bridge was set/staggered such that I couldn't get the intonation set at all. So I bought/installed a TonePros bridge (nashville style with more saddle adjustability), some Grover strap button replacements...and WOW...this guitar plays and sounds better than my Gibson Les Paul Goldtop! My favorite guitar! The tone is simply incredible out of the DP100s - warm, yet provides the bite you need to punch through. Thanks Ace.

i got lucky

By sixstringpsycho

from Stockton-On-Tees, UK

I recently purchased this guitar, and I?m blown away buy it, not only is it in near mint condition (it?s a 2001 model as well) but the actually guitar is out of my price range and looks and sounds even further out! I haven?t put it down since the purchase and am blown away; I would certainly recommend this guitar to anyone from intermediate to professional.

My Curely

By Al-ipWw7

from Fillmore,CA

I bought my Ace Frehley Epiphone a couple of years ago. My son has borrowed it when off and on, now 18 years he wants one on his own. It sounds chunky and powerful. The pickups in combination with it's body give it great sustain. We both use it. Good Value and craftsmanship!

Probably The Best Rock Guitar Ever!!

By FrehleyFreak

from Royalston, MA

Anyone who loves Ace, and loves Les Pauls, buy this guitar! It plays so unbelieveably awesome right out of the box!!(might wanna get some Gibson Vintage Reissue VR9 strings to put on it)It even sounds great on the clean channel! Action is right there out of the box! The finish is so beautiful, I just have such a big smile thinking of it now!

no regular les paul

By Jiggetybop Shalome

from NYC

Since I got this guitar in the summer of 2005 I have had no problems with it. The guitar is beautiful to look at and plays as well as a guitar twice its price. All the hardware is chrome and unlike the picture above mine game with chrome rounded Grover tuners. NO other les Paul comes with Diarize hum buckers and they sound great. The guitars flamed top is great and the back is as reflective as a mirror.

WHOA

By Derk

from Clarksville, OH

I recieved this guitar for christmas and I was blown away by the beautiful flame top. It looks a LOT better in person than it does in the picture. The action is PERFECT and the sustain and sound is great. The middle pickup is good for some lighter rock songs like "Forever." I love this guitar. The back is so great, I can see my reflection in it and fix my hair. I only wish it came with a pickguard.

You wanted the best.........

By Dragoneyes

from Muskegon, Michigan

I bought this guitar at the end of December 2006. After a lot of messing around with the set up from the factory I got it dialed in and perfection. The guitar is awesome. With 3 Dimarzio Super Distortion pick-ups it kicks out. The selector switch set in the center all three pick-ups are on and it is loud. The down side is you really can't get much tone adjustment out of it on that setting.
