With a bigger than life stage show and some great rock anthems, KISS clawed their way to the top of the charts during the 70's to become one of the biggest acts in the history of Rock n' Roll. In 1976, the band's frontman, Paul Stanley, was approached by Ibanez to collaborate on a signature guitar that would become the iconic instrument he would forever be associated with.

In 1977, when Paul and Ibanez sat down to create his signature guitar, it was to be a totally unique design, but while perusing through the Ibanez catalog, one guitar in particular caught the frontman's eye: The Artist 2663. Later to be known as the "Iceman", the Artist wasn't exactly a popular model at the time, but Stanley was intrigued by its asymmetrical shape and unusual body style and decided this would be the template for his signature instrument. Now, for the first time since 1996, Paul and Ibanez have reunited to introduce three exciting Paul Stanley signature models.

The PS120 features a Okoume body with a Maple top for a full, balanced tone. In addition, 3pc Mahogany PS set-in neck, a bound Ebony fingerboard features long sustain and clear articulation. Electronics include a Seymour Duncan '59 model neck pickup and a Custom 5 at the bridge for a full range of classic tone. An ART-1 bridge was selected for optimal string transfer and precise intonation. Finished in a high gloss Black with stunning block fingerboard inlay, body binding and chrome hardware, the PS120 is an read more iconic guitar and a true work of art.

"Great buy"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
After reading reviews on this guitar after I purchased it and before I recieved I was a little worried. The only issue I had is with the packing. I took pix but they have no way to upload them. zZounds didnt put any material inside the box they packed the guitar box in which had it bouncing around inside. Opened the box the guitar came in from the manufacturer and it barely had anything to protect it. Thankfully nothing was damaged guitar looked flawless and was detuned a half step or so from factory for shipping I'm sure, after running it up plays beautifully love this guitar I have 4 other guitars this is now my favorite.
