Gibson Plans to Release Signature Les Paul for Guns ‘N’ Roses Guitarist DJ Ashba

GNR man’s signature axe set to drop in March


Gibson Guitars plan to release a new signature model Les Paul for Guns ‘N’ Roses guitarists DJ Ashba. The guitar, which was designed by Ashba himself, is set to drop in March of this year.


Ashba joined the band in 2009 and has since become an integral part of a GNR lineup consisting of vocalist Axl Rose, guitarists Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal and Richard Fortus, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman, and drummer Frank Ferrer.


In addition to releasing his signature axe in March, Ashba will also embark with his band on a South American tour early in 2014. The tour will include a headlining spot at the Hell & Heaven Metal Festival in Feria De Texcoco.


The South American connection is already strong with Ashba, who recently tied the knot with Colombian model Nathalia Henao. The couple live in Las Vegas.
