Washburn Launches a Paul Stanley Signature Acoustic Flying V

NAMM is always a time for weird and wonderful things, however I'm not quite sure which category this KISS inspired Paul Stanley signature acoustic fits into, because most people associate the Flying V design with electric guitars.

PSAV Washburn Paul Stanely Acoustic Flying-V

Paul Stanely and Washburn have officially dubbed this new model the PSAV or the PSAVWH (the WH stands for White - the only color this model has so far been released in).

Credit is due to whoever it was at Washburn who came up with the idea, as unusual as this instrument is, I'm sure there will be enough nostalgic KISS Army guitarists out there to make this a success.

Actually, after looking over the specs, I'm sure there will be a number of other curious guitarists who will add this to their collection.

The PSAV has a solid spruce top sitting on a carved mahogany body.

Running around the top it has abalone rosette and abalone binding.

The offset sound hole helps it retain the appearance of an electric guitar - I would be very curious to hear how this effects the sound, but no doubt it will be distinctive.

The Tune-O-Matic bridge has piezo saddles which are matched with a Paul Stanley star tailpiece and a piezo volume control - so you can plug it in and get some real volume out of it.

It has a mahogany neck and with an ebony fingerboard, which is set with mother-of-pearl and abalone split-block inlays, and comes with Grover 18:1 ratio tuners.

The only color is the white gloss finish pictured above.

It is expected to go on sale soon with a price of around $3,732.

Paul Stanley has had a long relationship with Washburn, so we expect further details will be added to the Washburn - Paul Stanley page soon.
