    The first time I saw it, it was priced at $8,888 and change! Better hurry before the price goes up again!

    Maybe I can interest you in Paul Stanley's book? Where he pisses all over everyone he ever knew... You don't have to buy it. You can listen to excerpts of his badly self-narrated audiobook on YouTube. That's more than you really want. Even for free.

    I've listened to a bunch of those excerpts. He really does piss all over everyone.
    Its a shame nobody ever contributed anything to KISS, except Paul Stanley.
    It must be hard to carry the band, when he's already carrying that huge ego.

    One of my faves was when he was bitching about Vinnie Vincent.
    "He was ODD looking." Really, Paul? Do you even own a mirror, ya odd looking feck?

    R...E...L...A...X... It says right in his listing that it is a solid investment:whistle:

    Seriously though, the seller states that any proof of authenticity is NOT included in the sale. WTF!?
    “IF PROOF IS SHOWN, IT IS NOT INCLUDEDAND ONLY FOR SHOW.” That tells me all I need to know about this idiot.

    Seems reasonable to me, I'd take it IF he paid me $10,000 after shipping. :)
    Then I'd gift it to Pete Townshend.

    It's amazing that he still managed to become so rich and famous despite being surrounded by so much incompetence... Imagine how much more successful KISS could have been if they had somebody besides Paul who could actually play their instrument, or had any business accumen.

    I feel so BAD for him.

    What?? I must have missed that! No serious collector would drop that much coin without a COA. But then again, I doubt any serious collector would be interested in this piece.

    Gene isn't selling this -- how does this reveal what he thinks of his fans?

    I wouldn't take that too seriously. Ron might have asked him to write that.

    Well I do note that, thankfully, it has the offset through-body ferrules.

    I can't stand Kiss' music, and I can tolerate them even less. What continues to baffle me is how they are cited as an influence on so many of my favorite guitarists.

    Also, shouldn't that have been a bass?

    I agree, and that's what I said.

    Haha!! I was thinking it would be well insured, but then again, I also assumed that the guitar would come with the COA too, so, I dunno...
