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. 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. With unique graphics on a satin Charcoal Gray finish with black plastics and binding, sleek playability, DJ’s choice of hot Seymour Duncan pickups, and versatile wiring mods, this guitar is primed to get you seen and heard.
The DJ Ashba Les Paul kicks off with a foundation of select tonewoods: a carved maple top and weight-relieved mahogany body for an easy hang and enhanced resonance. The glued-in maple neck is carved to a super-slick profile that measures .800” at the 1st fret and .875” at the 12th, and its Grade-A rosewood fingerboard has a compound radius of 10”–16” to take you from comfortable chording down low to slick soloing and bending up at the top. A rich Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro humbucker in the neck position and a sizzling-hot JB in the bridge provide all the smolder and burn, while modified wiring with a kill switch in the normal pickup selector toggle location, a master volume, two independent tone controls with different cap values, and a three-way selector provide unbridled sonic versatility. Finish it off with gloss-black racing stripes and DJ Ashba graphic, black Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, and a hot-stamped ASHBA truss-rod cover, and the DJ Ashba Signature Les Paul is taking no prisoners.
