The PS120 is a solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2015. It is a signature model of guitarist Paul Stanley of the American hard rock band KISS. It is produced in China.

The introduction of the PS120 marked Stanley's return to Ibanez. Stanley had previously been an Ibanez endorser since the 1970's and is closely associated with the Iceman body style.

The PS120 features a maple top with abalone purfling and white binding on a mahogany body mated to a set-in mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard with white binding and acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include a Full Tune III Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change Classic tailpiece with a special serrated arrowhead shaped chrome ornament, a bone nut, dual Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups with individual volume controls and Sure Grip III knobs.

For 2019 the mahogany body and neck were replaced with okoume. For 2020 the bridge was changed to the new Gibraltar Performer.

The PS120L is a left-handed version. The PS40 which was introduced concurrently is a mass-market version of this model. The PS10 is an upscale Japanese-made version.
