The PS10 is a sleek, classically inspired design that features a carved "raised centre" 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 two 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 centre 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 and includes a gig bag.  It will ship in the UK in Q2 2013 at an expected RRP of £379 inc VAT.

Washburn Guitars are distributed in the UK/ROI by Sound Technology Ltd.  For more information please call 01462 480000 or contact and
