“Through his work as a solo artist and stints with Beautiful Creatures, Mötley Crüe, Sixx:A.M. and Guns N' Roses, DJ Ashba has forged a reputation as one of the hardest-rocking guitarists on the scene today,” Gibson said in a statement. “In addition to his incendiary riffs and artful songwriting, DJ’s unique style has helped to set him apart from a heated crowd. The DJ Ashba Signature Les Paul is a guitar that brings it all to the party for looks, playing feel and utterly scorching tone. (It's) primed to get you seen and heard.”
Gibson.com recently chatted with DJ Ashba about his affinity for Gibson models.
“(Guitar tech) Chris Whitemyer sets up all my Gibsons, and every one of them is just insane,” he said. “Every one of them sound and play like a dream. What’s cool about all my guitars is that they all sound and feel super similar. If I close my eyes, I cannot tell you which guitar I’m playing. I have probably 17 Les Pauls… When I joined Guns N’ Roses, Chris – who is one of the most brilliant techs out there – sat down with me for months and months, and we went over guitars, and I was literally going into depth about what I love about Les Paul, and he helped me reconfigure the guitar to fit me.”
The Gibson DJ Ashba Signature Les Paul runs $2,799. For more information on the guitar, go here.
