Played by everyone from Guns n' Roses to Brian May, we're excited to announce that we have added Paoletti to our collection of handcrafted custom instruments! These guitars truly have a story to tell, based in Tuscany, Italy - each one made 100% by hand using Chestnut, some including ancient stock from the Paoletti family's collection of aged wine barrels from the 19th Century that have proven to be a rich, resonant tonewood!
Brand new Richard Fortus Signature Paoletti, their take on the classic flat top singlecut Les Paul Jr. but with some welcomed changes and updates to Richard's specifications. The Roasted Maple neck has a super comfortable modern neck carve and is rounded out with gorgeous figuring that make it look as good as it feels. Paoletti's custom wound pickups sound incredible, and the Tele / P90 combo allows you to pull of just about anything while still keeping your setup clean and simple. If huge tone, smooth playability and a deep resonance in a unique package is what you seek, look no further!
