EPIPHONE ACE FREHLEY BUDOKAHN Les Paul #243 of 1000 Clean Cond OHSC +Candy 07450
You're looking at a 2012 Epiphone Ace Frehley limited edition Budokan Les Paul Custom guitar full kit with hard case and all accessories. This is number 243 out of 1000 made worldwide. These are rare, especially in super clean condition with all case candy like this. This is not the "lightning bolt" model, which is not as rare--this is the limited BUDOKAN model. Comes with Certificate of authenticity signed by Ace, case key, Allen wrench and full bag of Epiphone paperwork (not shown). Only imperfections are one pinprick size hard to see edge mark. And one nearly hidden mark where the neck meets the body (pics below). These are absolutely beautiful guitars and don't come around often. Just look at all that beautiful binding around the body and neck--dark rich ebony fretboard--big pearloid neck and head inlays--sweet pearloid tuning keys...the list goes on. Grab for your collection now. Weight is 8 pounds, 12 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
