What we say:
At A Glance:
Paoletti Guitars was first established in 2005 as a natural progression of Fabrizio Paoletti's guitar luthier and amp tech activities. Inspired by the many shapes of the most iconic guitars in Rock history, Paoletti Guitars started handcrafting guitars using 130/150 year old chestnut woods, sourced from the Paoletti Family's Chianti wine barrel reserve. It was soon realised that the old wine barrel wood gave the instruments a unique and impressive sonic character. It was then that Paoletti knew they were onto something special!
Based in Tuscany, Italy, each guitar is handcrafted on site from start to finish.
This model is Richard Fortus' second signature model with Paoletti guitars, and we think it can be agreed that it's a real stunner! Italian white leather top, roasted maple neck, handmade pickups, rustic hardware, this guitar really comes through both visually and sonically!
Features We Love:
Century Old Tonewoods
Crafted from family owned wine barrels, the 130-150 year old chestnut gives this guitar a fantastically unique tone. An interesting choice of tonewood, this instrument really has it's own voice and texture to it's sound. It is also believed by many that older woods give guitars a better sound. As the wood ages it becomes lighter and more resonant allowing the vibrations from the strings to ring throughout the body effortlessly.
Every guitar from Paoletti is handcrafted from start to finish on site in Italy. This ensures that every detail of these instruments has been carefully considered and crafted to the highest standard, delivering a great guitar that's built to last.
Richard Fortus Signature
Whether you're a fan of Guns N' Roses or not, you're sure to love this model. This is Richard Fortus' second signature model with Paoletti and we think they've really nailed it! A visually and sonically unique instrument, this guitar ticks all the right boxes!
Caramel Roasted Maple Neck
Roasting the maple that is used to craft the neck of the guitar brings with it a host of benefits and advantages over non-roasted maple. The wood becomes more stable, has increased resistance to rotting and insects, is lighter than normal wood, has accentuated grain patterns, and can often smell like maple syrup after it has undergone this process.
