        A collaboration betwen the former lead guitarist of KISS and Black 'n Blue that'll give you an out of this world sound.

        There has never been an American rock and roll band like KISS, recognized around the world for their hard rockin' and spectacular stage show. Now, Epiphone is proud to present the Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer “Spaceman” Les Paul Standard Outfit, a beautiful Les Paul Standard in a one-of-a-kind Silver Flake color finish that’s worthy of KISS' 21st century “Spaceman.” Tommy Thayer’s life story is the classic tale of a musician who knew from childhood that he belonged on stage with a guitar in-hand. Thayer has been part of the KISS family since 1985 as songwriter and guitarist, working behind the scenes at rehearsals and on studio demos. Finally in 2002, Tommy became a full-fledged member, joining KISS on stage as the iconic “Spaceman” and giving the rock legends an explosive new sound and attitude. And now, the 21st century "Spaceman" has his own Les Paul Standard with Gibson 498T™ Humbuckers, Grover™ Deluxe Vintage tuners, and a custom silver hard case with a signed certificate of authenticity. And like Tommy himself, this Les Paul Standard "Spaceman" is one-of-a-kind with a limited run of only 1,000.

        The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer "Spaceman" Les Paul Standard Outfit features a solid mahogany body and a plain maple veneer top that deliver the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a "real" Les Paul. The 1960's SlimTaper™ “D” profile mahogany neck has a deep-set glued-in neck joint, a 24.75" scale length, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a 1.68" nut. Like all Epiphone Les Paul's, the Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer "Spaceman" Les Paul Standard Outfit features a 14-degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets. A rosewood fingerboard with a 12" radius and pearloid trapezoid inlays completes the classic Les Paul Standard look and feel. The hand set-neck delivers outstanding string-to-body resonance while the medium-jumbo frets add to the smooth and sustained tone. The top features a beautiful Silver Flake color finish and a black gloss finish on the back, sides, and neck. The body features single-ply white binding on the top and on the fingerboard. A cool black pickguard completes the modern look.

        The Power of Homemade Humbuckers
        At Tommy Thayer's request, his guitar features Gibson's world famous Gibson 498T™ Humbuckers with a covered 498T™ in the neck position and an open coil, double black bobbin Gibson 498T™ Humbucker in the lead position for that unmistakable Les Paul sound. Gibson 498T™ humbuckers have the tonal characteristics of an original PAF but with a slight increase in upper mid-range response. The Gibson 498T™ uses Alnico V magnets for a slightly hotter output with an emphasis on mid-ranges and highs. And like the time-honored originals, Gibson 498T™ Humbuckers use only the highest quality parts including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, and the finest magnet wire available. Controls include standard black TopHats for volume and tone.

        Legendary Epiphone Hardware
        The Limited Edition Tommy Thayer "Spaceman" Les Paul Standard Outfit features Epiphone’s legendary rock solid nickel hardware including a Locking Tune-o-matic StopBar fully adjustable bridge, still a classic after 50 years. And now, Epiphone's updated, patent pending design auto-locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed for the kind of sustain that Mr. Les Paul always imagined possible. The Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer "Spaceman" Les Paul Standard Outfit uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw", longer life, and reliable service. Epiphone’s all-metal 3-way toggle switch uses rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance and Epiphone’s proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability. Like all of Epiphone’s Les Paul Standards, Tommy’s “Spaceman” includes Grover™ Deluxe Vintage machine heads with a 14:1 ratio. The classic clipped dovewing headstock features a ‘60s style “Epiphone” in silver and “Tommy Thayer” on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.

        One Of A Kind Silver “Spaceman” Case
        Anoher cool perk of purchasing this guitar is that it comes packed with goodies including an inspired by custom studded leather strap like Tommy's, a custom “silver” hard case and a signed certificate of authenticity in a binder with a photo of Tommy Thayer with his very own Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer "Spaceman" Les Paul Standard Outfit. Peace of Mind: Like every Epiphone, the Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer "Spaceman" Les Paul Standard Outfit features a Limited Lifetime warranty.

            This guitar plays and sounds as good as any of my Gibson electric guitars. Wife bought it as a silver anniversary gift because it is Silver. Not a huge fan of Tommy Thayer or Kiss but this is an awesome guitar.
