Limited to a mere 100 rock fans on earth

Everything in a classic GnR track sounds real, everything fits together, with just that right touch of the brilliantly insane. So, what better way to experience their iconic sound than with a one-off version of an award-winning turntable?

As the latest in its Artist Series turntables (after The Beatles and The Rolling Stones), the Pro-Ject ‘Guns N’ Roses Record Player special edition deck marks the first time 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.

Essentially a reworkinmg of Pro-Ject’s Essential III A turntable, the special edition deck also features an Ortofon OM 10 elliptical cartridge, a belt drive system with a precision diamond-cut aluminium pulley, and a 8.6in aluminium tonearm.

All excited? More than a little intrigued? Check up with Qualia Gadgets, Dubai-based fine purveyors of hi-end gadgetry in the region, and the exclusive distributors of Pro-Ject in the Middle East.

And rush. You don’t want to be crying ‘Since I don’t have you’, do you?
