My KISS Guitar Collection!

Finally the wait is over! I’ve tried to get my hands on it for almost 15 years…

Today my Gene Simmons AXE GS-2 Bassguitar arrived!!!

A big package was waiting for me at home…

When I opened up the package I saw Gene’s face looking at me (LOL) on the beautiful Gig Bag

I couldn’t wait to open up the bag to see the AXE and hold one for the first time in my hands. Wow, what a feeling…what a awesome guitar!!!

The AXE is 34 " in size, has a hard maple neck, rosewood fretboard, diecast tuners and Might Mite pickups in a P/J configuration. Take a closer look to the details…


And here it is hanging on my wall of KISS Guitars, a real eye-catcher!!!

My Paul Stanley Washburn Guitars!

When the new Paul Stanley Washburn Guitar line came out last year, I really like some of them, like the PS400G ones. But I decided not to buy one, because of the high price and because I really would like to add a Gene Simmons guitar to my collection. When I finally got my hands on a Punisher earlier this year (scroll down to read my story about the Punisher) all options where open again, but as owner of 3 Paul Silvertone Guitars in my collection (scroll down to read my story about these guitars) I wasn’t serious thinking to buy one of Paul’s new guitars…

A copple of weeks ago, I was contacted by a local guitarshop with the question if I was interrested in a Paul Stanley Washburn Guitar Set? Sure I was, but still in my mind the expected high price I probely not want to buy this set. The shop-owner invited me to come over and take a look to the guitars and talk about the price. So I went over and expected the guitars, who looked awesome! When I finally hear the offer he makes me for 5 (!) guitars, I knew I shouldn’t pass this by…After a week of serious thinking I decided to take the offer and bought them! So take a look to my Paul Stanley Designed PS400G Electric Washburn Guitar Set

The set includes 4 guitars with 4 amazing color custom Paul graphics…

Each guitar comes with a custom Paul Stanley Gig Bag, Signature Guitar Strap, Cord & 3 Paul Stanley Signature Guitar Picks

Besides these 4 PS400G electric guitars this offer also included a 5th guitar: a Paul Stanley PS11E Electric/Accoustic Washburn Guitar including a custom Gig Bag, Signature Guitar Strap & 3 Guitar Picks, scroll down to the latest photo to see this guitar…
These Paul Washburn Guitars are very cool, the graphics are awesome and I like the sound of them better than the past guitar line of Paul. I’ve admit that, when I didn’t got that offer, it would have probely take years to collect them…

My Gene Simmons Punisher!

I was searching for this guitar for almost 10 years! It wasn’t easy to find one. And if I find one there where a lot of reasons why I didn’t bought it, like the guitar was in the US, no signature or signature was wiped off, to high price ect. But finally I got him! I’m talking about the Gene Simmons Punisher Guitar

My black Punisher has never been played! The inlays in the neck of the guitar are still new. All strings are still the original ones. Still has the plastic on the cavity cover (back) and has also the bridge guard…

The Punisher came in his original leather guitar case with the Logo.
Gene’s original signature is still 100% intact, nothing of the signature has been wiped off! (white dots in pic is just dust)

There are only 1000 made of this Punisher and every guitar has been numbered by Gene himself!
So, after almost 10 years of searching I have finally add The Punisher to my KISS Collection…

So, here’s a photo of my wall of KISS Guitars…

Reply marcel/hoolie says:
10 August 2006 at 23:49 mooi die gitaren. en die serie die paul nu uit gaat brengen passen daar mooi bij natuurlijk.
Reply Carol says:
12 August 2006 at 12:43 Inderdaad, die nieuwe Washburn gitaarlijn van Paul zien er mooi uit. Ik zal waarschijnlijk 1 van die serie gaan kopen in de toekomst, maar niet allemaal!

Ik wil eerst eens proberen om aan de Axe of Punisher basgitaar van Gene te komen…

Zo wie er 1 heeft kan altijd contact openemen met mij!

Probely will buy 1 of these new Washburn Paul guitars in the future…

First I’ll try to get my hands on the Axe or Punsiher bassguitar of Gene!

So if someone has 1 for sale you can always contact me…

12 August 2006 at 21:59 Die acoustische guitaar van Paul is dat een oude uitvoering ?
Hier zie ik de sterren niet op de hals en ook niet in de open ruimte.
Reply Carol says:
13 August 2006 at 15:11 @ Kabbie; Hoezo “oude” uitvoering? Het is natuurlijk de Silvertone Akkoustische gitaar van Paul.
De Washburns hebben die ster in de openruimte en hals, zijn alleen een stuk duurder dan die Silvertone gitaarlijn!
Reply Donna says:
13 August 2006 at 19:07 Very nice collection of Paul guitars, what do you think about the new washburn guitars? Will you buy them too?
Reply Dylan says:
20 August 2006 at 21:03 Wow very nice Paul guitars, nice collection, like the amp also
Reply spaceace says:
31 August 2006 at 17:17 Te gekke verzameling van Paul’s gitaren, mooi man!
Reply Nico says:
3 February 2007 at 13:37 Het is gelukt. Ik heb een Silvertone Sovereign Pro gitaar kunnen bemachtingen via Maxguitar in Den Haag voor 330 Euro. Er is ook een zaak in Rotterdam maar die had zijn prijzen inmidddels al verhoogd naar 399 Euro. Mogelijk vanwege de deal die Paul nu heeft met Washburn dat de Silvertone modelen nu uitverkocht gaan raken en daarmee dus zeldzamer.

Ik kan geen noot spelen maar wilde er een voor aan de muur. Hij is in het echt nog mooier dan ik had verwacht.

Groetjes,

Nico Elbers

Reply Lina says:
17 May 2007 at 18:55 Hey Carol I love your ‘Punisher’!!!
Reply Lars says:
17 May 2007 at 19:33 Ik ben weer jaloers op je rockhead, dit is weer een enorme mooie aanwinst in je collectie.
Het is namelijk erg moeilijk om hier deze gitaar te krijgen, vooral met invoerechten, porto en opassen met beschadigingen.
Ook zijn van de meeste gitaren de handtekeningen verdwenen of bespeeld.
Zo te zien heb je een obespeeld exemplaar.
Gefeliciteerd!

20 May 2007 at 13:01 Deze gitaar zou ik nu ook wel graag willen hebben, schijnt een killersound te hebben!
Reply Catwoman says:
20 May 2007 at 13:03 Wow Carol that looks soooo cool well done on your find!
Reply Keith says:
20 May 2007 at 13:10 That is cool. In the 90′s, I guess 10 years ago or so when they came out, I wanted to buy one. But that was before we had the internet where I lived, so the US magazine was over 3 months old when I got it, and when I called the number in the USA to buy one, they were sold out.

I could not think of a better owner than yourself. I am sure it will be in good hands for many years to come.

P.S. If I ever come to Holland, can I hold it?
Reply Linda says:
20 May 2007 at 13:10 Wow very nice bass. It looks so cool sitting there on that stand
Reply Starscream says:
20 May 2007 at 16:45 Ahhh well done. I know exactly how it feels trying to find that perfect guitar. I spent ages looking for my PS2000 Millenium.

Looks awesome mate!

Reply Joop says:
23 June 2008 at 20:37 Hoi, je hebt al een mooie collectie, echter als je uitbreiding zoekt, kijk dan even op ebay.co.uk en zoek naar Paul Stanley en Ace Frehley. Je zult dan respectively een PS10 en een Gibson Ace Frehley Les Paul zien die ik op dit moment te koop aan biedt.

Was overigens ook in Nijmegen voor mijn 2e concert (1e was Zwolle 1980). Errug gaaf, vond alleen het publiek wat tam…

16 September 2010 at 03:25 Hi carol….. loretta here eric carr’s sister..
you would more then likely know.. Eric Had a bass guitar which gene gave him .. it is clear lucite and is from the Schaffer-Vega Diversity System. Ken schaffer Group.. wire less.
do you know more about this.below is what internet says
The first rock band to place an order, in 1977, was Kiss, whose members were attracted primarily by a secondary benefit of Schaffer’s invention: it protected a musician from electric shock, a significant occupational hazard in the rock world at that time. (Kiss’s bassist had received a severe shock while playing on the group’s metal stage set. )… have you any more info.. would love to share a photo, with you and your friends
thanks
Loretta
