Simmons was spotted with a G² Thunderbird Bass just prior to Kiss’s New Year’s Eve show in Dubai. Gibson CMO Cesar Gueikian has also posted a preview of a forthcoming interview on his Instagram account of the Kiss star with Mark Agnesi.

“Gene Simmons is not only one of the most celebrated musicians and rock stars of all time. He is also an entrepreneur, record producer, actor and overall creative person. Gene’s brain is always working, and I love that about him.“When we first connected, we immediately engaged in the most interesting conversations about guitars, entertainment, and business. Our shared vision compelled us to explore a partnership that would include developing instruments and creating a new platform to entertain and inspire new generations of Gibson and Gene Simmons fans to create music. Expect epic things.” – Cesar Gueikian

    I wish they would make a G2 Punisher bass. I believe that was the bass he used on Kiss Alive!
