Metallica has teamed up with Pro-Ject for a brand new special-edition Metallica Artist Series Turntable, based on the band's star logo. According to Pro-Ject, the turntable offers a S-shaped tonearm and pre-installed Pick it S2 C integrated cartridge and headshell atop a mirror-finished version of the band's logo. The turntable looks metal as hell and probably should be kept away from anything breakable or people prone to getting stabbed by sharp objects. The turntable is available this summer for $1,599 here.
In terms of merch, the turntable follows Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett's recent Jim Dunlop signature wah pedal. The pedal made headlines after one buyer noticed that Hammett actually printed his 11 favorite Metallica wah-based guitar solos on the bottom of it… which is pretty damn clever marketing.
