About 6 months ago I began working with Paul and Washburn’s Rudy Schlacher, Nick Ellingsworth, Bill Abel and Terry Atkins. The project I came up with was to reach out and find a way to get more organic with the Washburn Paul Stanley Preacher. To get more ‘raw’ while still remaining a fully spec’d and classy version of the Preacher.
I also had a goal of possibly getting a USA Washburn Custom Shop Preacher with a street price of just under $2K! That would include hard-shell case and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Paul!
And I’m here today to announce the PS5. A USA Custom Shop Paul Stanley Preacher guitar – exclusive to Boogie Street Guitars!
The guitar has true ‘organic’ feel in that it is completely – OIL FINISHED! Plus – the guitar will have an ALL MAHGAONY body back AND carved top! Plus the neck will made of MAPLE! Again – all with an OIL FINISH!
The guitar is far from a stripped down model! The body has black binding. The hardware is gold including a TonePros bridge and Grover 18-1 tuners with Keystone buttons.
The headstock on the BSG commissioned PS5 run of Preachers is with full art-deco inlay! Just like the PS9200 USA Customs!
The 22 fret fingerboard is Ebony with large Mother of Pearl blocks starting on the 1st fret…spec’d just like the PS9200.
The first group of numbered PS5 USA Custom Preachers will have Gold covered Seymour Duncan humbuckers. In the bridge will be a JB humbucker. The neck will have a Pearly Gates humbucker.
We expect these guitars to hit around Decmeber or the first of January and have a street price of UNDER $2K for everything! Now – how about that!
