Dj Ashba of Sixx:A.M. Teams Up with Dean Markley

“To be a true guitarist isn’t about anything except the art of playing guitar.” — Dj Ashba

Dean Markley USA announces the addition of guitarist Dj Ashba to their artist roster along with the Dj Ashba Artist Series of strings. Ashba joins many musicians who proudly play Dean Markley strings.

The Dj Ashba Artist Series is a custom set of gauges that feature .010, .013, .017, .028, .038, and .048 from the longtime favorite, Dean Markley Signature Series of nickel plated strings.

unnamedDj Ashba is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and graphic designer. He grew up in Fairbury, Illinois, where he worked in the cornfields to earn enough money to buy his first guitar. Influenced by Randy Rhoads and Eddie Van Halen, he practiced tirelessly, sometimes 17 hours a day. By the time he moved to Los Angeles at 18, he was proficient enough to become an in-demand session and touring guitarist. He released a well-received solo album, Addiction to the Friction, composed music for film scores, and in 2007 partnered with Nikki Sixx and James Michael to form Sixx:A.M. From 2009 to 2015, Ashba also played lead guitar in Guns N’ Roses. As a co-producer and songwriter, he has worked with a diverse list of talent ranging from Motley Crue to Neil Diamond. Most recently, Dj scored the title song to Eli Roth’s 2015 hit movie The Green Inferno. Dj has been featured on hit TV shows such as History Channel’s Counting Cars and Animal Planet’s Tanked. This Fall, see Dj Ashba touring arenas with Sixx:A.M. to bring the band’s two 2016 releases, Volume 1, Prayers For The Damned and Volume 2, Prayers For The Blessed live to fans across North America.

“Being a guitarist means being true to what you do,” says Dj Ashba. “Guitar is an art, and it takes a lot of years and dedication. It’s not an overnight thing. It’s a super-long road, and you’re going to hit the ground, but at the end of the day, what makes you a true guitarist is honing in on a unique style and never giving up.”
