Kiss Ace Frehley Epiphone Les Paul Guitar Black with Epiphone Case | eBay
There you go.
Man...look at the rust / corrosion on the frets...Strings too, but that's not a biggie.
Unless I had a chance to see it before buying, I think I'd leave that one be.
Played hard and put up wet?
Recieved my Budokan today. It looks perfect. I called Guitar Center (they forgot my receipt) and he said the had just received this last week, he was the one that unboxed it. They also shipped it to me in the original Budokan box too. #194. It was missing the Eagle sticker. I called Gibson and they said they would mail one right out. Like other reviews I have read, I don't like the strings, but other than that, it looks perfect and plays very well right out of the box.
Let's see it...& I added it to the list for ya'
I am going to look at and possibly buy a new Budokan tomorrow!!!
Here are a couple of pics of #194.
KEEP IT ALIVE!!! KEEP IT ALIVE!!!!
Agreed. This thread is like family now
My local guitar shop in Tuscaloosa, Alabama just received an Epiphone Budokan...#8/1000.
Pretty low number there. I'm tempted...Hmmm.
I stil think it's a bit unfortunate that the guitars don't come numbered...but I suppose the serial number would do the trick to match that up...maybe.
One day...I'll get a BB3 and Ace it up...get that big ol'fat neck.
They do come numbered but its on the certificate.
I just called to check the price...sold yesterday.
Walked in to my local Sam Ash today to look around and found a Epi Budokan hanging on the wall and about fell over! I haven't been keeping up with this thread and had thought they were all sold out except for ebay. Funny thing is I was really expecting to see the new Tommy Thayer guitar when I went in.. so it was a pleasant surprise to see the Ace hanging there! This guitar was not there a few weeks ago when I went in, so it either just arrived or had been sitting in the stockroom for a while. Perhaps some of the last of the Ace's are trickling out, as this is #960+.
Up until this point, I had never seen or played one of the Budokan's, if any of them arrived locally, they sold out fast. I played the Budokan and really liked it for an Epi, so after talking with the salesman a little about price, he took off $100 using a special coupon that expired the same day. Score! I took her home, and I love the guitar.. can't beat it for the price IMO!
I've been watching ebay on occasion for Epi Budokan's, and I disagree that there's a bunch of them being listed.. there's no lack of the first run Ace Epi's (fake or real) and the aged/Gibson Budokan's, but not may Epi Budokans.. and all of the Epi's are several hundred dollars over the original sale price of $799... certainly doesn't seem like a weak market for this guitar as implied earlier in this thread.
This is a great playing guitar with a nice feel IMO, and a great value (I was pretty damn lucky to pay $699 NIB!). And not to mention that the case that comes with it is absoltely kick ass!
Well, Here's a quick pic of her, she's a beauty!! Thank god they put an ebony fretboard on the epi this time, it's gorgeous!
Wish I had the money and not need for amp...
Nice bro! Looks fantastic.
It is a great playing guitar..I especially like the slim C neck because I don't have dainty long guitar playing fingers .
It seems the neck Slim Taper C profile is unique to the Budokan? Can this profile be found on any other Epi's? It feels really comfortable to me and easy to play fast on. I wish my Pro Fx's had this profile as they are the guitars I play most. Seems most other Epi Les Pauls are the D profile....any ideas?
Great guitar, you will love it! Welcome to the club so to speak ..
My friend's 81 Norlin Custom had a very similar neck...very thin.
I just wish it was a little big bigger.
