The PS10CL is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1996. It is a signature model of guitarist Paul Stanley of the American hard rock band KISS.

The PS10CL features a mahogany body with maple top mated to a set-in maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard with block inlays. The body has a deluxe abalone binding which extends to the headstock. Components include a fixed bridge with sustain block and decorative tailpiece and dual Ibanez Vintage humbucking pickups with individual volume controls. It has a chrome pickguard and signed chrome truss rod cover. Each example came with a certificate of authenticity signed by Stanley.

The PS10CL is described as a "dead on reissue" of the original PS10.[1]

The PS10II is a less deluxe version which was manufactured in Korea. The PS10LTD is a similar model with gold hardware, ebony fretboard and different pickups which was offered in the previous year.

When Stanley split with Ibanez in 1996 he bought up the remaining stock of the PS10LTD and the PS10CL. He sold these direct via mail order throughout the late 1990s.[2]
