During his tenure in KISS, Paul Stanley has played more guitars than any of us can imagine, and gleaned from each what makes an instrument truly exceptional. Combine that with his keen sense of visual design and you get the Paul Stanley Signature Series from Washburn. We sat down with this knight in Santa’s service to discuss these stellar instruments, and how gear has evolved over 40 years of being in the hottest band in the world.
From pitch pipes to sophisticated electronic music tuners, find the right model for your instrument and budget.

There is a comfortable simplicity to the acoustic guitar that frees it from many of the constraints of any specific music genre or cultural era. It is a great beginner’s instrument, and a strong tool for professional musicians. A new acoustic guitar is an exciting investment, and an old, well-used one is a treasure. From campfires to studios, bluegrass to rock, and basements to arenas - acoustic guitars are right at home.

William Henry "Billy" Duffy was kind enough to meet us in Hollywood, where The Cult were preparing for their Electric 13 World Tour. Over the course of our conversation Billy proudly presented his signature Gretsch Falcon, spoke of his preferences for certain effects pedals and amps, and shared his perspective on how his guitar-playing aspirations have evolved over the years. He also gave us some great advice on becoming a better guitarist. A delight to interview, this introspective Englishman had a lot to say.
