Up for auction is THE one and only original Gene Simmons custom design Spector electric bass finished in a silver and black pyramid design used originally in the Love Gun/Alive II tours. This bass was purchased at the Kiss Butterfield's Auctioneers and Greg Manning Auctions, Inc. June 24 and 25, 2000 auction [lot 1126.] Hand-signed in person backstage by Gene (see photo for proof.)

TRULY ONE OF A KIND.

ALSO USED BY GENE IN KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM OF THE PARK, THE VIDEO 'UNHOLLY'
& THE NEW LINE CINEMA MOVIE DETROIT ROCK CITY ON STAGE DURING KISS CONCERT SCENES.

ADDITIONALLY, THIS BASS WAS SHOWN WITH GENE IN ALMOST EVERY FAMOUS PIC OR POSTER OF GENE LIVE - USED FOR GREATER PORTION OF HIS CAREER (THIS BASS WAS USED BY GENE FOR APPROX 20 YRS).

ORIGINALLY PAINTED BLACK WITH WHITE SIDES, GENE RE-PAINTED IT ALL BLACK AND ADDED THE STUDS IN THE NINETIES.

THIS WAS THE 1ST SPECTOR BASS EVER CREATED (COLLECTIBLE ON ITS OWN.)

VIDEO EXISTS OF GENE WITH THE BASS IN AN INTERVIEW DISCUSSING THIS CUSTOM HAND-CARVED BASS.

WE ARE INCLUDING TWO STRAPS WITH THIS AUCTION - THE ORIGINAL THAT ACCOMPANIED THE GUITAR FROM THE BUTTERFIELD'S AUCTION & ALSO AN ORIGINAL STRAP USED THROUGHOUT THE LOVE GUN TOUR, THE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT TOUR, THE DYANASTY TOUR, AND THE UNMASKED TOUR (Strap still shows traces of fake blood from stage show -- see photo).

This rare second strap was obtained a few years back in a separate Butterfields auction for over $4000 alone!

The case is a custom coffin-esque looking original.


Also comes with wristband (unknown) w/ bat wings and a back-stage pass (See photos.)
