Vinyl fans get excited — Guns N’ Roses have created their own record player, and it’s pretty much the coolest merch item ever.
Manufacturer Pro-Ject teamed up with the band to create the custom-designed player perfect for superfans.
“Guns N’ Roses are a staple of the rock music scene,” Pro-Ject said in a statement. “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 honor?”
The turntable is decorated with the iconic Guns N’ Roses logo.

Pro-Ject has an artist series that contains turntables based on the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
The record player will be available in April and will cost about $485 (429 euros).
That’s right, per The Independent, the Christmas Day episode sported a cartoon cameo from the Guns N’ Roses rocker. And while nothing’s been confirmed, it certainly sounds like Rose voicing his animated visage. Not to mention the cartoon Axl breaking out a new song called “Rock The Rock” for Bugs and the gang.
Guns N’ Roses’ latest album was 2008’s Chinese Democracy, itself a mammoth exercise in prolonged album creation. (They started recording it in the ’90s.) Rose reunited Guns with cornerstone members Slash and Duff McKagan in 2016.
