Washburn Guitars Introduces The New Paul Stanley PS10 Starfire Guitar

Most affordable Starfire guitar features classic looks and superb tone and playability.

Washburn Guitars is proud to introduce the Washburn PS10 Starfire. Designed in conjunction with Kiss' Paul Stanley, it is based on his Washburn PS12 model.

The PS10 is a sleek, classically inspired design that features a carved “raised center” solid mahogany body and mahogany neck for warm tone and lots of sustain. A bound ebony fingerboard is fitted with 22 easy playing jumbo frets and features dot inlays. The high quality hardware includes a Tune-O-Matic bridge with stop tailpiece, graphite nut and diecast tuners for precise tuning. The white pickguard ties in nicely with the headstock shaped truss rod cover. Both contain a silk screened variation of the Paul Stanley Starfire logo. Electronics include 2 chrome mini humbuckers, each controlled by separate top hat volume and tone knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.

The high output mini humbuckers produce a tone all their own that is both versatile and will sit front and center in a stage mix. Judicious use of the volume and tone controls will reward the player with a wide selection of biting and/or creamy sustaining tones to choose from.

The PS10 Starfire is available in black or white, includes a gig bag and carries a retail price of $712.90.
