I'm comparing this axe to a pretty cool epi sheratin and an american strat. The ps80 is smaller than I thought. About the size of my LP. This axe is FUN to play. It feels like a low end guitar. The neck is sealed and feels good but the headstock feels rough. the action came way too high. I straightened the neck, changed strings, dropped the action and entinated. Still wouldn't stay in tune. Filed V slots into the nut so the strings wouldn't stick and it stayed in tune for about a half hour. Went back to play later and the axe was still in tune! The body feels great, neck feels good. This is no LP by any means but the wood and pups sound GOOD! Plays kinda like a strat. Sounds "sharp,crisp" but can sound toney like an LP,too. Nice. I don't care who you are, the strap is cool. Don't front, you know it is! Bag is cool too, if you're a KISS fan. I like that although it's still a gigbag, it has a little protection where the head is so the string ends (pointy) won't tear the bag, nice. 2 pouches, 2 shoulder straps, 1 set of handles. OK for from car to door. It's a gigbag. I will change out the nut, tuners (these are really cheap) and bridge. I like to play funk grooves and pull off chicken pickin licks with this bad boy on a clean channel. Sounds really good clean. sound good with EX, too. Not being a Rockafeller I'm using Wasabi OD & distortion, a Crybaby wah, Fender chorus & flange, Behinger reverb & multifx (I use the harmonizer setting)and a digitek delay. Then I can kick on the Wasabi distorion and this axe rages all 80's style. Yeah it's oldskool. I even started belting blues,haven't done that in a while. I would be P.O.'d if I paid more for this setup but for the Hunny I paid and the extra love it'll take this could be a pro gigging axe and I don't regret buying it one bit! My 12 year old daughter thinks it's great so it must be cool. The picks that come with it are light but playable, might slip in sweaty though. I don't know what to say about the PS pic. It's a picture, not a poster. I gave it to the wife, see where it ends up. Through the cable onto the cable pile, it's probably 6' and looks serviceable. All in all pretty awesome if a little TLC is applied!

I tried this guitar at a friends house using his Dean Headphone Amp, and the guitar stunk! The tone was retchingly scratchy and stiff, the strings were really loose and the tuner knobs wouldn't keep it in tune for more than half way through a song. If you want a cool guitar that looks good and sounds well enough to impress your friends...This is IT!!! But other than that...I wouldn't recommend buying this guitar.

    Way better than expected

    I purcchased this for my 13 year old son. I've been a musician for 30 years and have owned several guitars expensive and cheap. This is one jewel of a guitar even if it cost four times as much it would be worth it. The finish was above par and the action was very good right out of the box. Trust me you will not be dissapointed with this guitar.

    long time KISS fan

    By King of Tuscola

    I grew up playing along to KISS records to learn what Paul Stanley was playing, so this caught my eye right away. Fit and finish of the guitar is quite good and the gig bag is very stout. I can't say much for the faux leather strap, but for the price, this is well worth adding to your collection. A solid, easy playing guitar signed by the legend.

    Black Diamond!

    By RockImmortals

    from Alabama

    I'm a Washburn & KISS fan so I ordered this guitar after only seeing pictures. The pics don't do it justice. When I took it out of the box it took my breath away. This beaut is a real jewel & I can't stop looking at it. Wicked design, Amazing fit & finish. Plugged into a Line6 Spider III 75 watt & and it SCREAMED. Great sustain & tone. This axe is an AMAZING buy for the money- It'll rock with the best of 'em. I could sit down & play it just fine. Tip: Don't judge a guitar by a worn out store display. Gig bag is a little garish for my taste, but it's surprisingly well padded. All said, this is one of the BEST buys I have ever made.

    Great axe

    By RaveOn SRV

    from Wichita KS

    Outstanding guitar! It fits your hand like a glove. Has great balance and playability. Only wish the frets were jumbo, but thats the only downside to this axe. It can scream with the best of them and sounds really good clean. Pretty decent sustain and good tone. Great value to price ratio. Thankswashburn.
