2012 Gibson Ace Frehley Budokan Les Paul Custom Heritage Cherry Sunburst Guitar!

Awesome guitar that is really hard to find these days. Obviously this is not the Custom Shop model, but just as obviously, it doesn’t carry the price tag of the Custom Shops either.

Guitar is in superb condition and doesn’t look to have been played much if at all.

Custom as pictured with original Gibson case and paperwork.

Get it while you can, you probably won’t find another one around any time soon.


The Ace Frehley “Budokan” Les Paul Custom is crafted with the traditional ingredients of the Les Paul Custom circa the early to mid-1970s. Its carved Grade-A maple top is joined to a Grade-A mahogany body that is weight relieved to reduce the load and enhance resonance. This classic tonewood pairing gives you the blend of maple’s snap and articulation with mahogany’s depth and warmth, cornerstones of the legendary Les Paul sound.  Loaded with three period-correct, double-cream DiMarzio Super Distortion pickups for maximum rhythm crunch and lead tones of unparalleled fire and fury. To maximize the sonic versatility of the traditional three-way toggle switch and four-knob control section, the guitar is wired to select the neck pickup alone in the switch’s upper position, both middle and bridge pickups in the middle position (sharing the lower volume and tone controls), and bridge pickup alone in the lower position.
