Face to Ace

Ace Shimizu is a legendary Japanese guitarist best known for playing in the band “Seikima-II”, a Japanese 'theatrical' heavy metal band that made up their own mythology based on the bands image. After leaving “Seikima-II” Ace continued as a solo act and later formed the two piece band “Face to Ace” together with Honda Kurage. “Face to Ace” has released three albums and four live DVD’s.

Ace has two different Caparison signature models. The Susannoh, named after the Shinto god of sea and storms, is based on his other signature guitar the Angelus-ACE. Both can be heard on the “Face to Ace” albums.
