A Jaw Dropping Identical top to the original and Beautiful Finish AAAAA

Here she is the hot girl at school, the bsuniess rep that makes you stutter, she is all that and a bag of chips. This is one of the most higly anticipated and most requested Les Paul to ever be produced... think about that let it soak in and continue reading. She is a Collector's gem and is one of only 50 in the world. It doesn't only have a super sweet flame top but the most accurate to the original tops that might ever be. Look at the side by side comparison and see for your self. It is eerily similiar and when compared side by side you can se why I feel that way. What is known as the "Frehley Burst" is one of the sweetest, and most expensive guitars the world has ever seen. With a current sale price of Two Million dollars (with free shipping of course) you couan imagine just how special this guitar is considering Ace actually didn't own it for such an extended amount of time. I beleive its more about the top and the sound of the original that makes it truly special. It has easily one of the strongest and properly bookmatched tops of any real 58-60 burst that ever was made. It has all the new 2015 appointments that make these easily the most accurate reissues ever made.  It has the most accurate top carve dish, neck carve, & back color, hot hide glue neck set, 1 piece rosewood fretboard, real celluloid inlays, new vintage accurate truss rod with no sleeve, Custom Buckers pickups, correct aniline dye in the cherry pore filler for the back color, new neck and body binding with a more accurate vintage color, & new single line Kluson tuners, a correct top carve, new accurate plastic parts, (like pickup rings and knobs)Heck even the cases have been improved and have a more accurate shape and top "carve". This guitar was a hand picked top that was chosen among over 15 other killers. I only stock the finest Gibson Reissues and I am known for having the best tops. I also look closely at playability and tone. Rest assured that what you buy from The Guitar Dude will not only meet but crush your expectations….. Guaranteed.


You don't have to look under a microscope to see the insanely nice wide tiger flamed AAAAA MONSTER maple top on this beauty. It has a solid 1 piece rosewood board with a beautiful dark brown color . The performance of this guitar is everything you'd expect from the Gibson Custom Shop, with top-shelf craftsmanship & truly sweet PAF tone. Make this rare 1959 Reissue Les Paul yours and add some unique "mojo" to your collection.

Luckily for fans of the ’59 Les Paul and Ace Frehley, one such story left a strong enough impression that Ace is able to recall many of the details of his original, lost ’59. Based on those recollections, exhaustive research, and with Ace’s final approval, Gibson Custom has collaborated with one of Rock’s most accomplished players to bring a limited number of others the chance to feel and hear his beloved ’59 as he recalls it.

An absolute specimen to behold with a beautiful “dancing” figure in her top, a distinct “dirty lemon” fade, Ace’s choice of hand-aged wear patterns (Aged version Only), and a tonal spectrum that ranges from throaty and bold to crisp and bell like with no more than a subtle knob turn and delicate change of aggression by the player. The Ace Frehley ’59 ‘Burst by Gibson Custom comes together as if it were a wish list as much as a guitar.

All of this makes it only fitting that it’s the first Artist ’59 feature Gibson Custom’s fanatical attention to detail when it comes to reproducing an original ’59 Les Paul. Beginning with precisely accurate replica plastics that have been re-tooled to original Gibson specs from the 50’s and reformulated through laboratory analysis of originals to match color and composition, a double carved, hand-sanded top to achieve an accurate vintage dish carve, a double carved and hand sanded neck to capture an original’s neck profile, a hide glued top, hand filed rolled fingerboard binding for a silky, vintage playing feel, a thinner peghead veneer as found on original 50’s Les Pauls and a thinner, hand wet-sanded finish that only Gibson Custom crafting can deliver. To match the tone that Ace recalls so vividly, two custom wound Custom Bucker pickups round off the guitar’s most intricate feature.

The Ace Frehley ’50 Burst is offered in a limited run of 50 hand aged and signed and played by Ace Frehley plus 250 in Gibson Custom’s new Vintage Finish. In both versions, the ability to source qualifying maple top material will dictate both the final number produced and the time it takes to produce them.
