Product Description

A one-of-a-kind guitar with a limited run of only 1,000, the Epiphone Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard electric guitar features a solid mahogany body and a plain maple veneer top that deliver the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a real Les Paul. Add Gibson 498T Humbuckers, Grover Deluxe Vintage tuners, and a custom silver hard case with a signed certificate of authenticity, and you have a must-have signature Les Paul for 21st Century KISS fans.

The 1960s SlimTaper D profile mahogany neck has a deep-set glued-in neck joint, a 24.75 scale length, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a 1.68 nut. Like all Epiphone Les Pauls (and unlike less costly designs), the Limited Edition Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard Outfit features a 14 degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by string-tree gadgets.

A rosewood fingerboard with a 12" radius and pearloid trapezoid inlays completes the classic Les Paul Standard look and feel. The hand-set neck delivers outstanding string-to-body resonance, while the medium-jumbo frets add to the smooth and sustained tone. The top features a beautiful Silver Flake color finish and a black gloss finish on the back, sides, and neck. The body features single-ply white binding on the top and on the fingerboard. A cool black pickguard completes the modern look.

The Power of Homemade Humbuckers

At Tommy Thayer's request, the Limited Edition Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard Outfit features Gibson's world famous Gibson 498T humbuckers, with a covered 498T in the neck position and an open-coil, double black bobbin Gibson 498T humbucker in the lead position for that unmistakable Les Paul sound. Gibson 498T humbuckers have the tonal characteristics of an original PAF, but with a slight increase in upper mid-range response.

The Gibson 498T uses Alnico V magnets for a slightly hotter output with an emphasis on midrange and highs. And like the time-honored originals, Gibson 498T humbuckers use only the highest quality parts including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, and the finest magnet wire available. Controls include standard black TopHats for volume and tone.

Legendary Epiphone Hardware

The Limited Edition Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard Outfit features Epiphone's legendary rock solid nickel hardware including a Locking Tune-o-matic StopBar fully adjustable bridge, still a classic after 50 years. And now, Epiphone's updated, patent pending design auto-locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed for the kind of sustain that Mr. Les Paul always imagined possible.

The Limited Edition Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard Outfit uses 1 diameter potentiometers for better throw, longer life, and reliable service. Epiphone's all-metal 3-way toggle switch uses rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance and Epiphone's proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability.

Like all of Epiphone's Les Paul Standards, Tommy's Spaceman includes Grover Deluxe Vintage machine heads with a 14:1 ratio. The classic clipped dovewing headstock features a '60s-style Epiphone in silver and Tommy Thayer on the bell-shaped truss rod cover.

One-of-a-Kind Silver Spaceman Case

The Limited Edition Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard Outfit comes packed with goodies, including a studded leather strap like Tommy's, a custom silver hard case and a signed certificate of authenticity, in a binder with a photo of Tommy Thayer with his very own Limited Edition Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard Outfit.

Peace of Mind

Like every Epiphone, the Limited Edition Tommy Thayer Spaceman Les Paul Standard Outfit features a Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service. But remember, this Limited Edition Spaceman has a limited production run of only 1,000.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
