Let’s enter the new decade with my Custom Black ESP guitar that was used for the Revenge Tour! Alive III was released shortly after, and it’s cover artwork featured me in the letter “I” of KISS, performing with this beauty...
This beautiful 1965 Gibson SG Standard, has it’s unique “Maestro” bridge that was offered in the 60’s. It has a “Lyre” featured on it, which is quite Deco looking. The guitar has a rosewood fingerboard. Mostly chrome parts are featured, but a nickel bridge, common for Gibson in the mid 60’s to mix the parts. (Earlier SG’s like this model would be all nickel parts, but chrome was starting to be used). Unusual tuning pegs that are non original are also on this guitar.

October’s KISS Guitar of the Month, is a beautiful pearl white metal flake finish Custom M-1 ESP. It was first used for the HITS Tour, without the tortoise shell pick guard. By the time of the Revenge Tour, the guard was added. It features a chrome Floyd Rose, Duncan pickup, Rosewood fingerboard, and the large style “hockey stick” headstock from that era. Listen to the biting tone in my video, as heard on stage and in the studio (Revenge LP) and featured as well on KISS Alive III. In many ways, its related my Banana M-1 from ESP as well. An excellent guitar that screams KISSTORY.
Here’s an amazing LP that has a fantastic tone, unique beauty, and has a big part in Kisstory. It was born as a 1953 Goldtop LP, that over the years had it’s conversion to be closer to a “59 Burst”. I bought in the late 80’s from my brother.
