In partnership with Gibson/Epiphone guitars, I am proud to announce my Stage Played guitars are now available for the up coming touring cycle for 2023.
For the past 20+ years the one constant in my life has been Gibson/Epiphone. For the past 5 years I've fallen in love with the SG Standard. This love for SG's started when the Misfits sold out the Forum in LA and I wanted to treat myself to something new to mark this musical milestone. All it took was one, and now there are several in the stable. And now, I'm offering you the chance to find out why these guitars are so stunning.
Only one will be available per-city and with each guitar you get the following;
-Stage Played Epiphone SG
-25 Minute meet and greet with Acey after Fear Factory and before Static-Xs set.
-Certificate of Authenticity with hologram sticker suitable for framing.
-Signed setlist from the show.
Can't make a show, but still want a stage played guitar? No problem we can make that happen as well. We will send you a guitar at the conclusion of the tour and you will get a one on one zoom call with Acey.
Each guitar will be shipped to the customer and arrive before the designated show. Bring the guitar to the show 1 hour before Dope's set.
After Fear Factory's set you will meet Acey at the merch booth where you will get a personal meet and greet for photos, video's, autographs, ect., and your stage played guitar to take home.
-Please order your guitar at least 10 days in advance to ensure you receiving it in time.
*ABOUT THE GUITAR*
The Epiphone SG Standard from the new Inspired by Gibson Collection, recreates the legendary 1960s classic that powered the first generation of hard rock like AC/DC, through to Heavy metal bands such as Black Sabbath and even Hard Core bands like Minor Threat and Biohazard.
The guitar features the historic SG profile with “batwing” pickguard, a pair of Epiphone's Alnico Classic PRO™ humbuckers, and 18:1 ratio Epiphone Deluxe Tuners. This Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Original model also has the Kalamazoo headstock, rolled neck for a comfortable feel, GraphTech® NuBone™ nut, era-appropriate wiring, and CTS pots.
'It's amazing how things come full circle. When I drove up to NYC to audition for dope back in 1998 I brought 2 guitars. 1 was my Gibson Les Paul, the other was my Epiphone Dual Cutaway Les Paul which was my first real guitar. By the time we started recording the 'Life' album, Epiphone had a happy home in the Dope guitar (and bass) world.
In fact, the only guitar that appears on every track on the Life album is an Epiphone. I am elated that I can now share a piece of Dope history with the fans. '
