For more than 30 years, Paul Stanley has reigned supreme as one of the single-most recognizable front men in the history of rock and roll. A visionary and trendsetter since the early 1970s, Stanley’s passion for both the musical and visual arts has perhaps been the key to the astonishing ongoing worldwide phenomenon known as KISS. Built to emulate the iconic guitar Stanley first took on the road in 1979, the PS1CM is as close to Paul’s cracked mirror guitar as you can get.
The “Cracked Mirror”
Ibanez obtained the original guitar of Stanley’s and was able to faithfully recreate the original Cracked Mirror top with acrylic pieces – reproduced and attached by hand by Japanese craftsmen, one piece at a time.
The PS1CM features Gibraltar bridge with sustain block.
Seymour Duncan pickups
The PS1CM features Seymour Duncan ’59 model and Custom 5 pickups which provide a balanced and warm tone.
The Ebony fretboard provides tight response and smooth left-hand fingering.
Half-Bone/Half Brass Nut
The PS1CM features a specially-designed half bone/half brass nut.
Certificate of Authenticity
PS1CM comes with the Certificate of Authenticity and an additional pickguard, both signed by Paul Stanley.
