The PS10II is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 1995. It is a signature model of guitarist Paul Stanley of the American hard rock band KISS.

The PS10II features a mahogany body with bound maple top mated to a set-in maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard with block inlays. The body has a multi-layer binding with abalone center which extends to the headstock.[1] Components include a fixed bridge with decorative tailpiece and dual Ibanez Axis humbucking pickups with individual volume controls. It has a chrome pickguard and signed chrome truss rod cover.

The PS10II is essentially a Korean-made reissue of the original PS10 with slightly different components. It followed the PS10R from a few years prior which was a limited edition spot model. The PS10LTD is a more deluxe Japanese-made model that also debuted in 1995. The PS10CL introduced in 1996 is a similar model which is a "dead on reissue" of the original PS10.[2]
