Hatsubai's review"Ace Frehley sig on the cheap"

Epiphone Ace Frehley Les Paul
Ace Frehley of Kiss has been one of the most famous guitarists to ever play a Les Paul guitar. It was only natural that he would get a signature model considering his popularity. For those who could not afford his Gibson counterpart, Epiphone stepped up to make their own version. In a way, it's very similar. It has the same mahogany body with a flame mape top, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, 22 frets with lightning bolt inlays, 3 DiMarzio Super Distortion humbuckers, a three way switch, two volumes and two tone knobs.


Epiphone did a pretty good job with this. Their fretwork can be hit or miss at times, but this model wasn't too bad. The nut wasn't cut quite as nicely as I would like, but even Gibson seems to have issues with that now-a-days. Access to the upper frets is still a pain, just like in all Les Paul style guitars. Aside from the three humbuckers and unique inlays, there's really nothing unique going on about this model. One thing worth mentioning is that the middle pickup can get in the way of picking, so keep that in mind if you decide to buy one of these.


The DiMarzio Super Distortions really help set this guitar apart from the rest of the Epiphone line out there. It sounds absolutely massive. Epiphone's quality of wood usually isn't the best, but it's pretty damn good considering the price you get. The Super Distortion in the bridge is extremely hot and fat. It gives that vintage overdriven tone in spades. The middle pickup is totally useless, so I have no clue why he has that in there. The neck pickup sounds a bit overwhelming considering how hot it is, but it can lead to some really unique tones.


The biggest selling point for this guitar is the pickup configuration and the fact that it comes with real DiMarzio pickups. Aside from that, you might be better off getting a different Epiphone, especially since the middle pickup can seriously get in the way of picking.

Epiphone Ace Frehley Les Paul
Very beautiful guitar, beautiful body, lighter than some les paul. Manufactures in China it seems to me (if this is not a core that is the south).
3 Di Marzio pickups super distortion, making the little extra guitar!

Basically everything t said, cons I think I was the new edition has must be because Ace relanc his career.

Mine has a pickguard, the knob are the same as before, and Ace the 12 th box is no longer framed it is just written in gray on the handle. I find that the knobs are a little weird on my own but hey they not serve much about epiphone I find not seen too much of the effect of the Tone knob.

The light on the handle are really the top to peter, it has gnial.


The handle is very pleasant, I have fairly large hands and it's perfect for me.
The access to acute, this is well known on the Les Paul, is a bit hard.

Very good ergonomics, a les paul what.

The guitar sounds very well without an amp ideal for night play =)


That this is the bulk of the Ace, through its 3 Dimarzio pickups were sound crazy, especially distortion, even on a micro cube amp is a pretty poor one can have a crazy sound without adding p dales.

The sound has cristalins will, even if it is his strong overdrive and distortion, pretty easy to get and very beautiful.
I play hard rock of the 70's like Kiss, AC / DC, Nazareth, judas priest etc., and is perfect for me.

The others have already said everything I see not add anything.


I use it for 3 days!

I was pretty lucky because I found the new auction on ebay, enchere I won 400 euros).

I have not tried many guitars to choose I knew she was going to make the sound I wanted and it was well done, so I just bought. I had a Cort X6 and a harley benton paul to start, and must say, it is the sea ** compar the ace frehley custom!

Price quality ratio gnial especially if it is found to 400 600 by counting 240 euros microphones that there inside.

Ben is a Les Paul so access to acute ... From the 17 th box it gets a bit but nothing very galre Gnant

The Les Paul is a time when we want to legends the legends it is also the weight!
For me the shape is perfect ...

For sound is simple: The industry is there's Ace.
In His Light: A very nice bluesy sound even if the guitar is oriented distortion.
With Distortion: The madness of it! Its a powerful (Dimarzio super distortion hh) is that price There's nothing better to play good Rock / Hard Rock is who is my musical orientation prfr.


It is perfect for my style of music Rock / Hard Rock.

Rglages it with some of his property obient fat (but not too nn liked N'oubiez that it is a Les Paul anyway!) The warmth of her is there!

It is noted that this guitar is up with superb MCAS grover.
In addition, the hardware is really good quality from an Epi LP standard.

Gnral the look is superb, a cot a few 80's of the color red gradient.
The picture is not day (is that the old models) the new versions a binding Submitted gnral more Russian and pop "Ace Frehley" the 12th box.

The quality of violin and finish are good trs trs, the table is beautiful flame, it's really a high end guitar.


The handle (in Saddle) wish well in hand. It is quite round (more than standard) and are easy to acute Accs. Obviously the game is a little hard to beginners because of the brand new frets.
The table is beautiful, more lightweight than a standard bomb. Attention on the other hand, no need to be careful so pickgard the blows of mediator on the table.
The pods of this skyscraper is much more lightweight tonament That a standard (and again I compare with the "old" versions) we notice a tendency by lgre against a "sting of the head" when it was the guitar and that the bandouillre lche.

There are pies like the Les Paul the four pots for volume and tone.


So it's the norm. The team is guitate DiMarzio Super Distortion of 3 (micro mounts on the "real" Gibson signarture-stops in 97 by the way -). The resulting sound is really powerful trs: excellent to good Rock / Hard Rock, the three positions permetent a fairly large range.
I use it on one processor and there's no modlisation can bp of sounds that "slime" or too "criart" I also try it on an amp Marshall TSL: while the freeholds my throws a lot, be careful not to push the volume too high. It really is the ultimate rock tone.
I play with my band a wide range of Rock and it's really perfect for the use I have.

This guitar has come even a high output, I inquitais a bit (I did not want to be with a big guitar mtal) but finalemnt to rock it trs well. So those looking for clear direction sounds, see. I do not find that the personal skyscraper in clean sounds ugly (it sounds pretty even with the bluesy middle pickups) but varied that it is not a sound trs "slamming" it remains a scraper directs saturation (as the name suggests microphones).
[edit] Since I jou scratches with this for a year on a peavey classic30, the really nice clear sound silent (but trs type), an amplifier c'estsur lamps that scrapes s 'best expresses. The amp as fairly Blues / Rock, the Ace can play the blues without any problem, the microphone just as serious particulirement hot.
Dsormais I bought a marshall head birthday (the LM6100), so three channels: from light to heavy lead through all kinds of crunch. The LP gre sacrment in all styles, the type must remain the crunch and JCM was really a Kiss.


I have this guitar for a month and I can tell you that for me aa t rvolution LP standard from me. As in design, and violin is the day and night.
As you can see I strongly conseol this guitar if you have a budget in the 800. In this same range, there is also the Epi Sheraton, which also displays a beautiful violin but the cons by the microphones are microphones Epiphone.
Be careful though if you try it in store: the strings are null and guitar shit is not right RULES home (bridge + pickups). I personally got it for 650, which seems be ok.

A trial by a scraper store: http://www.total-guitar.fr/EssaiDetail.asp?Id=604

[edit] APRS two years I still have no complaints (except that prices have risen), the Ace is not giving it sr but few scratches are so teams and so finished in 1000.
