EPIPHONE LES PAUL CUSTOM ACE FREHLEY +HSC 2000 KOREA KISS Clean w/ Repair 70125
You're looking at an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Ace Frehley signature guitar with fitted hard case. It was made in 2000 in Korea. Cosmetically it looks almost new with no dings or scratch, but at some point it did have a neck repair done, as you can see a darker color on back of neck where it meets the headstock. Must have been a minor break or just a real good repair because you can't feel anything. (May have actually been damaged at the factory and was repaired there because it has "Used" stamped on back of headstock. That usually indicates a factory second.) But except for the color difference you couldn't tell. The back of neck is totally smooth and feels great. It is in all original and very clean condition. The action is low and it plays great. Beautiful cherry sunburst finish, all electronics are perfect. Has three DiMarzio Super Distortion pickups. Since these normally go for around $1100 on eBay, I've priced it a few hundred lower. Weight is 8 pounds, 14 ounces. Case is a nice one, says "Made in Canada," so may be Gibson TKL type. 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!

Everything about the Epiphone Ace Frehley Les Paul Classic Electric Guitar screams rock. Epiphone's version of Ace's LP Custom features lightning bolt fingerboard inlays and the Ace face and signature on the headstock. Add a multi-bound premium flamed maple top, mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard, and quality chrome-plated hardware and you have a guitar that looks, feels, and sounds fantastic.
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.
