Most affordable Starfire guitar features classic looks and superb tone and playability.
Chicago, January, 2013 - Washburn Guitars is proud to introduce the Washburn PS10 Starfire. Designed in conjunction with Kiss' Paul Stanley, it is based on his Washburn PS12 model.
The PS10 is a sleek, classically inspired design that features a carved “raised center” 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 2 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 center 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, includes a gig bag and carries a retail price of $712.90.
