Pro-Ject Audio Systems have announced a new Artist Series special edition turntable collaboration. After successful collaborations with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Parov Stelar, amongst others, the Austrian company have launched a new turntable design in partnership with Guns N’ Roses.

I was a massive Guns N’ Roses fan as a teenager and the band still have a massive following today, some thirty odd years on.

Pro-Ject Essential III Turntable

The Guns N’ Roses Record Player is based on the Pro-Ject Essential III A turntable and includes an Ortofon OM 10 elliptical cartridge.  It features a stable belt drive system topped with a precision diamond-cut aluminium pulley, and 8.6” aluminium tonearm.

For the first time with one of their turntables, Pro-Ject have directly printed artwork onto the Acryl-IT E platter. Using a special 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. Finished with a clear dust cover and terminated with high-quality Connect-IT E RCA cables, the turntable is immediately ready to connect to any Hifi system with a phono stage connection. SRP £429.00.
