my name is jim hendricks. since the mid 80's i have worked with several local
rock bands, that is until my diabetes put an end to that. anyway, when we
would do our halloween gigs, i started to dress as gene simmons. even when
i no longer was in the band scene, i would still dress up as gene. the costume
is 100% handmade by me. i even built a working axe and punisher bass. i was
asked by a baltimore radio station ( 98 rock ) to dress up for the premere
of kiss' detroit rock city movie. i learned to play duece and would sit in
with a local rock group and do the firebreathing and all.
interested in buying a handmade axe bass? it's similar to the one in my photos
but is more accurately detailed. i have over $650 invested into making it
and would like to get around $850 for it. it took me about 5 weeks to make.
for being homemade it looks and sounds great. i even stuck gene's signature
on the headstock. - jim
