Pro-Ject Audio Systems have collaborated with Guns N’ Roses on a new “Artist Series” special edition turntable. The record player is expected to be released in April.
“Guns N’ Roses are a staple of the rock music scene. Everything in a classic GnR track sounds real, everything fits together and everything sounds better than many modern recordings. So, what better way to experience their iconic sound in the modern era than with an award-winning turntable that’s designed in their honour?
What makes the Guns N’ Roses Record Player unique is its appearance. For the first time with one of their turntables, Pro-Ject have directly printed artwork onto the Acryl-IT E platter.
Using a meticulous printing process, the instantly recognisable Guns N’ Roses logo fills the entire 12” platter surface. The end result is a yellow hue that glows above the gloss black MDF plinth, which itself features a small logo underneath the tonearm’s rest position.”
Here’s some key features:
* Special Artist Series edition of the Essential III A
* Gloss black MDF plinth with Guns N’ Roses artwork
* Special printed Acryl-IT E platter shows Guns N’ Roses artwork
* High-quality aluminium tonearm
* Factory-fitted Ortofon OM 10 moving magnet cartridge
* Low-noise 9V motor with built-in AC generator
* Supplied with sturdy dust cover
* Hi-fi quality performance from a world-leading analogue audio company
During a recent interview with Eddie Trunk, Duff McKagan talked a bit about the possibility of a new Guns N’ Roses album. According to him, Axl Rose has already come up with “some magnificent stuff” for the effort.
When asked “how real” the likelihood of a new album is, McKagan said the following:
“Oh, it’s real. But the fun part and the cool part about Guns N’ Roses is we don’t really talk about it, and what happens next just happens. It’s never been that band that there’s a direct schedule of how we do things.”
“I’ve heard some magnificent stuff that Axl has — really cool stuff he’d been working on. So I’m excited about the possibilities with that, of course. I don’t mean to get anybody rabid. [A new GUNS N’ ROSES album] will happen when it happens, that’s for sure.”
McKagan also said he has “heard some new material and there’s been some jams going around, and that’s the next step for [them], for the GN’R thing”
This news comes after Slash recently said new material was in the works and that they were “hoping to put a new record out.”
During a recent interview with Masa Ito of “Rock City,” Slash confirmed that Guns N’ Roses are working on new material and that they are hoping to release a new album. The guitarist said the following:
“Axl, Duff, myself and Richard have all talked about… there’s material and stuff going on already for a new record. It’s just, with Guns N’ Roses, you don’t go, ‘Oh, there is a plan, and it’s gonna be like this,’ because that’s not how it works. So, basically, the only real answer to give is we’re hoping to put a new record out, and we’ll just see what happens when it happens.”
This news comes after Richard Fortus recently made some similar comments.
During a recent interview with St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Richard Fortus discussed the possibility of a new Guns N’ Roses album. He said the following:
“Slash is on tour right now. Once he gets back from that, we’re gonna get some more recording done and hopefully get an album out soon. And then we’ll get back to touring.”

Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose recently made a cameo on a episode of the “New Looney Tunes.” It is not entirely confirmed, but many believe the singer voiced himself on the show. Interestingly, the episode also featured a new song titled “Rock The Rock,” so if it really is Rose’s actual voice, the track is his first since 2008’s “Chinese Democracy.”
