Jason Newsted, the Metallica bassist from 1986 to 2001, has listed his Sula, Montana, ranch for $4.95 million.

Metalheads, this one’s for you. According to Hall and Hall, the 3-bedroom, 3½-bath custom home belonging to the former Metallica bassist features an entire wall handcrafted from exotic woods direct from the Gibson guitar factory. Built in 2006 and sitting atop a ridge of the 545-acre property, the private home covers more than 5,800 square feet and boasts 365-degree views. The surrounding area lends itself to hiking or horseback, and downhill skiing is less than 30 minutes away at Lost Trail Powder Mountain.
