    Ace had a LOT of guitars, so it's pretty hard to answer that. Almost always played a Les Paul, sometimes with three pickups, but not always. No idea about picks or strings, but if you look for the Guitar player cover interview from the 70,s, you'll probably find out. BTW, there is a long standing rumor in the biz that Kiss did not play through all those stacks of Marshalls- they actually had a couple of small Fender amps backstage that they were really plugged into- the Marshalls were for show; a feed sent a signal through the stacks to simulate the effect that they were producing the guitar sound. I heard this many times, and one source was a roadie I met when I was a musician. And off topic, Paul is supposedly gay, according to some of the same people. Not that it matters, he's awesome at what he does.
