Ibanez PS120-BK Paul Stanley Model Save £300
Paul Stanley is back with Ibanez! After a few years away flirting with other companies he is back home where his original signature guitar began with the Ibanez Iceman. Paul Stanley may not be one of the flashiest guitar players in the world but he knows how to rock and he knows good gear when he sees it. This guitar is ready to rock the stage with a design that is distinctively KISS like.
Any guitar made for Paul Stanley needs to sound heavy and be able to survive a battering on the road. This guitar is no different, the thick mahogany body that has been topped with a maple cap for some extra sparkle and 3 piece mahogany neck are tour ready out of the box.
To be used on stage with KISS though it also needs to look the part. Taking inspiration from Paul Stanleys original signature guitar with Ibanez the PS10 this PS120 features a jet black finish with abalone and cream binding accented with all chrome hardware. Get some strong lights on this guitar and you will seriously stand out on stage.
To finish off the feel and look you have a dark ebony fretboard with acrylic and abalone block inlays. Ebony is an extremely smooth wood that is very easy to play on so don't worry about this guitar slowing you down.
The PS120 is heavily inspired by Paul Stanley's original design for his old PS10 model. It uses the latest versions of the Full Tune III bridge and Quick Change III Tailpiece with the extra paul stanley flair piece. This bridge system is amazing for when you need to set up quickly in less than ideal environments.
Although these are not the same pickups that were on the original guitar the PS120 has a set of stunning Seymour Duncan pickups that have become a bit of an industry standard. The combination of a Custom 5 and '59 mean that whatever style you want to play this guitar can perform. Although it may look a bit out of place in a blues rock gig there is no reason sonically why you couldn't perform with this guitar.
