First a few very important notes!! There are more “Important
Notes” at the end but these are here, at the beginning for a reason:
We ship WORLDWIDE by Express Mail Service…average time to the USA is about 3-4
days… See our feedback.
We no longer ship to South America or Africa without special arrangements. It
is too expensive (usually more than double). If you would like us to make an
exception please contact us first!
We ship within 3 business days of completed payment
(usually Tuesdays and Fridays).
4) Our shipping fees (and free shipping if it is offered) are
worldwide. Unless you live in a tiny or war torn country you do not need to ask
us the shipping rate. It is the same as everywhere else and is clearly posted.
5) eBay does NOT have a “I changed my mind.” option. All
non-paying bidders and bid cancelers will be reported to eBay and added to our
blocked bidder list.
This is a 1976 Les Paul Custom with three Dimarzio Super 100s. Just like Ace Frehley's original 3 pup 1976 Custom. This is what they call in Japan a "real modify". That means it has been done to be the same as an artist's model...You take the same year model that the Artist played and modify it to be like theirs. This guitar was most likely not originally a 3 pup guitar but the route is so professional it might actually look better than the other two. Pots look to be original (date to 1975). The hardware is all correct Gibson though the tailpiece looks really new. Knobs look very new as well.
Light fret wear showing...see pics!!
Cosmetically it still looks very good. Has some play related wear though...see ALL of the pics for a very accurate representation of the condition. This guitar is structurally 100%. No repairs done or needed.
Sounds and plays great. No issues.
About as close as you can get to Ace's original!!!
Comes in it's original case pictured.
Just to very clear: YES, this is a real made in USA Gibson..exactly as described. Gibson exports literally tons and tons of guitars every year...especially to Japan. This guitar is not a replica etc.
See our feedback..the BEST on ebay for guitar sellers. Really!
You MUST MUST MUST read all fine print and Q&A below the pictures!! I can NOT stress this enough!!!PAYMENT, INSURANCE and CUSTOMS info and terms!!
We include a great many pictures in our listings so the buyer can see EXACTLY what they are getting. Our guitars are as described so please look carefully at the pictures. Often something that looks like a flaw is dust or a reflection. Also keep in mind that close up pictures can make a tiny flaw look much worse and even completely normal things look strange. When was the last time you stared at a guitar from 3 inches away? All used guitars will look worse with close up pictures. Our new guitars are indeed new so if you see something strange it is almost certainly not really there. If you have questions ask. These guitars pretty much always look MUCH better in real life!!!We recommend hitting the F11 button before viewing the pictures for full resolution.
SHIPPING: Shipping cost is $95 to just about anywhere by EMS JapanPost (if you are in South America or Africa please contact for a qoute as rates are more expensive). This is the only method we use. You don't need to worry about shipping from Japan!!! It is very, very safe and fast. See our feedbacks!! Often, to the USA, they are door to door in 72 hours! See our "me" page for PROOF!!! Also, we have NEVER had shipping damage on a guitar that was not in case!! Folks!! We firmly believe that EMS JapanPost is much safer and faster than UPS or FedEx ground. Less time in transit means less chance of damage! We now double box all of our guitars so the box is pretty much strong enough to sit on from any angle. Caseless guitars might actually be safer than a guitar in a case because there is more room for padding and the added mass of a case often does more damage than it prevents!!KEEP IN MIND.... While your cost is $95.... our ACTUAL COST is an average of $170 per guitar!!! We take packing very seriously and I estimate chances of loss or serious damage at less than 1 in 1000.Tracking information will be sent by ebay messages within 12 hours of shipping. We ship at least 2 days a week, usually Tuesday and Friday.
CUSTOMS FEES: Some countries have import duties. We are not
responsible for these and generally do not know specifics for your
country. There are usually no customs fees on our items entering the USA
(fully insured through EMS JapanPost).Sometimes there are, but the vast
majority of the time there is not. If you do get charged it is your
responsibility, not ours. We have no control over customs!!!Customs fees
are usually based on the insured/declared value for the package.
Safe Delivery: The item is insured.........unless for some reason you do
not want it to be, then let us know. There are reasons the buyer might want
Return Policy: You can return a guitar for any reason within 72 hours of delivery (3 business days). There is a 10% fee on returns so your refund will be 90% of the purchase price. No exceptions. No refunds on shipping costs. Returns must be by airmail and guitar must be in the same condition as it was in when it left us.
Payment: Generally, we will accept all paypal payments but we do reserve the right to refund any paypal payment for any reason. Contact to discuss other methods.
Sourcing: We can no longer post a sourcing policy per eBay's new rules!!
