PS1CM Cracked Mirror Red copyright sprite

The PS1CM 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. The PS1CM is built in Japan by Sugi.

The most striking visual feature of the PS1CM is the cracked acrylic mirror top which mimics an earlier Paul Stanley custom model. It is the first model since Stanley's most recent return to Ibanez in 2015 to belong to the upscale Prestige line, along with its sister model the PS10 which lacks only the cracked mirror top. It features the iconic Ibanez Iceman body style.

The PS1CM features a maple top with abalone purfling and cream binding on a mahogany body mated to a set-in neck with a smooth heel and a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with cream binding and acrylic and abalone split block position markers. Components include a Gibraltar fixed bridge with a sustain block embedded in the body and a separate tailpiece, dual Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups with individual volume controls, a bone & brass nut, Sure Grip II knobs and Gotoh tuning machines.

For 2018 the body material was 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 PS2CM is a similar model with a purple mirror top which was introduced in 2017. The PS4CM is a similar model with a gold mirror top and gold hardware which was introduced for 2020.
