This I seriously doubt. If Ace still owned it, he probably would have used it (the spaceman design) somehow in the design of his latest record cover, Origins Volume One. I don't believe he would have made any agreement for someone else to pose as him, look like him, dress like him, play like him, act like him, etc. He has publicly (in interviews) shown a distaste to Thayer using it.I think Ace still owns his makeup and paid by KISS to use it.
They don't. Vinnie nabbed it while Gene and Paul weren't looking. That's what caused the whole mess with Gene and Paul not wanting to make new make-up for new members to begin with. That's the reason why you rarely see it anymore.
However, I wonder if Paul & Gene own Vinnie's Ankh design, and if so, would they be willing to sell it? They aren't using it for anything.
Considering how much Ace vibrates the signature is probably better off printed.Both epiphones I have came with a certificate of authenticity. For the Ace model there's a printed signature, which is not the case with the Thayer epi: hand-signed by Tommy. Real signature. He could have done like Ace, but no... cool Tommy!
