Chicago, IL (September 25, 2012) – Designed in conjunction with Kiss' Paul Stanley and based on his USA Washburn PS2012 model, Washburn Guitars is proud to introduce the affordable Washburn PS12 Starfire.

The PS12 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 stunning pearl/abalone split block inlays. The high quality hardware includes a custom Paul Stanley tailpiece machined from solid aluminum aiding in sustain, a Tune-O-Matic bridge, graphite nut and premium Grover 18:1 tuners for precise tuning. The mirrored pickguard ties in nicely with the headstock-shaped, mirrored trussrod 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 palette of biting and/or creamy sustaining tones to choose from. The PS12 Starfire is available in black or white, includes a gig bag and carries a retail price of $1,426.90.

Muse returns to self-producing on Will of the People, an album teeming with formidable anthems that navigate themes of fear, politics, dystopia, compliance, corruption, and other topics concerning the world order.

Decked out in black ninja-like uniforms with mosaic mirrored masks obscuring their faces, Muse opens their current shows with the powerful, sing-along chant of “Will of the People,” the anthemic title track off their latest album. From that song’s infectious shuffle until the very end of the concert’s encore, people are jumping out of their seats, and appear to be completely mesmerized.
