OVERVIEW

Replicated in excruciating detail.

The Gibson Custom Ace Frehley 59 Burst is a recreation of Ace's own 1959 Les Paul, replicated in excruciating detail through hands on access to the same guitar that Ace played and loved for many years.

The Ace Frehley 59 Burst is the first artist vintage replica to feature the complete complement of True Historic specifications including reformulated plastics, double carved and hand sanded top and neck, wet-sanded finish and hand filed rolled binding. A limited edition of 250 of the Ace Frehley 59 Burst are treated to Gibson Custom's Vintage finish process.

New in 2015
Homage to Ace Frehley's original 1959 Les Paul:
True Historic Plastics: Molecular level analysis delivers authentic vintage design and materials
True Historic Pickup Covers: Designed and engineered based on the originals
Double-Carved Top: Authentic vintage dish profile
Double-Carved Neck: Hand sanded for ideal playability and accurate profile
"Broken" Peghead Edges, Smoother Edges: Vintage Looks and Feel
Thinner Peghead Veneer: A testament to obsession with detail
Thinner True Historic Wet-Sanded Finish: More work, more authentic
Hide Glue Top Construction: A real vintage spec for authentic 'Burst tone
Rolled Fingerboard Binding: For the playing feel Ace couldn't forget
