I spoke to our Gibson Rep. last month he's said they have no clue when it will in store. we will know before him.
but here's few things to consider.
#1 it's a new product
#2 it's a signature model
#3 it's a limited Edition
#4 it's an outfit with few goodies
#5 it has higher quality standard because of the 4 factors above.
#6 being made in china, maybe they are waiting to have a full container being shipped over sea (not with only the Ace Frehley model but all other models as well)
with my experience with Gene Simmons Punicher last year.
released at namm 2011. it was instore in early september.
so .... Yes be patient.
but it will meet our expectations (.... I hope
until then!!! Rock On!!!!
