The PS10 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid-2015. It is a signature model of guitarist Paul Stanley of the American hard rock band KISS. It is produced in Japan by FujiGen. Stanley's first Ibanez signature model, which was available from 1978 through 1981 was also called the PS10.

The PS10 features the iconic Ibanez Iceman body style. It has a maple top with abalone purfling and white binding on a mahogany body mated to a set-in neck with a smooth heel and an ebony fingerboard with white binding and acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include dual Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups with individual volume controls, a Gibraltar bridge with a sustain block embedded in the body, a Quik Change tailpiece with a special serrated arrowhead shaped chrome ornament, a half bone/half brass nut, Sure Grip II knobs and Gotoh tuning machines with pearloid buttons.

For 2018 the body wood species is specified as African mahogany. For 2020, the Gibraltar bridge was replaced with a Gotoh GE103B-T and the Quik Change Classic tailpiece was replaced with a Gotoh GE101Z-T.

The PS120 is a similar mass market model which is made in China. The PS1CM has similar specs but adds an acrylic "cracked mirror" top and is built by Sugi.
