I'm trying to track exactly which model TRavis Bean Ace Frehley played in 1975. On that big 3X4 KISS poster you could buy, the headstock could be seen in at least two pictures. And in the 1975-early '76 bootleg videos' you can see Ace playing a Travis Bean (usually in "Let Me Go, Rock & Roll") that appears to have a color finish (black? the finish is so reflective in the dim lighting they used to have, it's hard to tell exactly what color...) Now, if someone has it and is willing to sell it to me...

It was a black thick bodied Standard. I have one as well, and spotted his in a bootleg from 1976 when it can be seen clearly. Rick Nielsen has an identical one, I wonder if he got it from Ace when Cheap Trick opened for them on the 1977 tour ?
