According to GuitarWorld.com, the Tommy Thayer “Spaceman” Les Paul model from Epiphone will be made available in January. Tommy says, “It’s based on a Custom Shop Les Paul that Gibson made for me. It has a Silver Sparkle top and it’s a straight-ahead Standard based on a 1959 to 1960 vintage. It’s got the same 498 pickups that I use onstage.”
Thayer recently commented on the guitar on his web site: “I’m psyched to be playing my new guitar onstage as we embark on the 2012 Kiss Kruise and South American stadium tour in the weeks ahead.
“My signature axe will soon be available in guitar shops everywhere. In the meantime, the first guitars off the line are ready for you through some very special offers on my new site, TommyThayerguitar.com. Keep it rockin’ and remember to turn it up loud!”
Epiphone.com recently posted a demo video featuring Thayer. You can check it out below.
