Former Metallica bassist and Montana resident, Jason Newsted, is selling his 545 acre Sula, Montana ranch.

Sula has a population of just 37 residents and is about 40 miles south of Hamilton. It is said that the Rockin JN Ranch is where Jason Newsted taught himself to paint, and that one entire wall is an intricate sunburst design handcrafted from exotic woods from the Gibson guitar factory. Here's the listing.

Rockin JN Ranch - New Listing

$4,950,000
Sula, Montana

This 545± acre gem is situated amidst an ocean of public lands and large holdings. A three bedroom, three and half bath custom timber frame home with over 5,800 square feet was completed in 2006 and is perched atop a ridge. The chef’s kitchen includes Thermador and other premium stainless appliances, has a walk-in pantry, and a dumb waiter to deliver your groceries.  Huge panes of glass absorb the 360º views. A towering stone Rumsford-style fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room and is only one of several. Exquisite woodwork is found throughout. In rock star style, one entire wall is an intricate “sunburst” design handcrafted from exotic woods direct from the Gibson guitar factory. The land itself is comprised of a gentle topography perfect for hiking or horseback though vast native grasslands and timber-lined draws. Other improvements include a manager’s home, shops and greenhouse.
