Washburn Signature Artist Paul Stanley
World renown rock icon, Paul Stanley, is the guitarist, vocalist, principal songwriter and co-founder of the rock band KISS, and has reigned supreme as one of the single-most recognizable frontmen in the history of rock and roll. In his KISS persona of "Star Child" Stanley has rocked the world for more than forty years and released more than thirty albums. Stanley began playing guitar at the age of thirteen and was mostly self-taught. He joined his first band at the age of fifteen and went on to form KISS with Gene Simmons in the early '70s. Even after more than forty years of performing, KISS is still one of the most successful, influential and top-grossing bands of all time.
All of the guitars in the PS Series are inspired and designed by Stanley and no other guitars can sustain the playing power of this legendary rocker. The PS2000 is the culmination of the ten-year relationship between Washburn and Stanley and commemorate a decade of working together.
