KISS frontman Paul Stanley has partnered with Washburn Guitars to release the PS21012 “Starfire” signature guitar.
The PS2012 features a carved “raised center” solid Mahogany body with chrome hardware, and has two Seymour-Duncan SM-3 Mini Humbuckers, controlled by two volume knobs, two tone knobs, and a 3-way toggle switch. A custom Tone-Pros Tune-O-Matic bridge and custom Paul Stanley tailpiece machined from solid aluminum completes this rocking body. This USA-made guitar is available in black and white. The neck is also mahogany and has a bound ebony fingerboard with 22 Jumbo frets and stunning “split” block inlays, with the top half being pearl, and the bottom being abalone. The PS2012 Starfire embodies rock and roll in a way only Paul Stanley and Washburn can.
Washburn Guitars is owned by U.S. Music Corp., located in Mundelein, Ilinois.
