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.
