A 10-year bond to celebrate, with the very first release of an extraordinary partnership between top Master Builders in the guitar world: Paoletti – Cruz exclusive 20 numbered Pieces Limited Edition.

It was a decade ago when John and Fabrizio first met at the Custom Shop Lounge in Bologna, Italy.

John, hailed already as a Master Builder of global renown, discerned in Fabrizio’s passionate dream and in the nascent Paoletti Guitars’ custom shop creations the spark of brilliance that would soon captivate aficionados worldwide. Their initial encounter laid the foundation for a profound bond of friendship, grounded in mutual respect and a shared love for guitars, infusing both with a relentless desire to create the best tools for great music.

Fabrizio Paoletti’s meticulous pursuit of excellence begins with the accurate selection of environment and tradition-aware top-quality raw materials, and extends deep into the care taken in building and assembling all components for their unique pieces in-house, with exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail. This aims to establish a deep connection with their customers, perfectly matching their technical and aesthetic needs and preferences.

John Cruz, a luminary with nearly four decades of custom shop expertise, has delicately etched his signature on instruments graced by the hands of icons like Bono from U2, Carlos Santana, Slash and Duff McKagan from Guns ‘n’ Roses, John Mayer, Bon Jovi’s guitarist Richie Sambora, and many more. His works are iconic masterpieces appreciated worldwide, each with a unique character, the result of a careful and meticulous approach aimed at providing customers with an instrument enhancing their artistic expression and personality at their full extent.

When John decided to embark on his own entrepreneurial journey, both he and Fabrizio realized an unprecedented opportunity layed ahead – to explore what more could be done to serve musicians with uncompromising quality and craft an instrument unlike any other.

The organic progression of kindred paths necessitated a distinctive project between Master Builders – a 20 pieces series co-signed and made by John Cruz and Fabrizio Paoletti – two Master Builders fueled by common inspiration inherent in the custom shop world, now ready to venture into the next phase.

At the heart of this visionary partnership lies an Alfa Loft model – top rated of Paoletti’s catalog – carved from selected reclaimed chestnut wood from the soul of ancient wine barrels, as per Paoletti Guitars trademark. Adorned with Paoletti’s signature brass hardware and three ‘60s single coil walnut pickups, the guitar traveled across the ocean to hand over the reins to John, who finely worked on the body finish – of a refined Paoletti cream color plus sunburst – and especially on the Canadian roasted maple neck. His exquisite unmistakable relic being just as gentle as to enhance the artists’ touch and the story yet to be told by their fingers and musical journey.

This fusion of Italian heritage and American craftsmanship announce the next level of musical exploration. As the strings resonate with the harmonious union of tradition and innovation, each note becomes a testament to the creativity and spirit of two Master Builders – John Cruz and Fabrizio Paoletti – united in their quest for sonic excellence.

No hassle returns

We know how much of a gamble it can be purchasing a guitar online without trying it first. That’s why if you receive your order and it’s not as you expected, let us know within 14 working days and we will have it collected by UPS.

Once back we will refund (minus restocking charge) or exchange the item if preferred. Online purchases only.

Fully setup & triple checked quality control

We have in-house guitar technicians here at Guitar Village, so that means all guitars in stock are constantly checked and maintained for optimum playability.

As soon as a guitar is sold it will be fully set-up to ensure it is playing great right out of the box. It will then go through an inspection checklist and is checked again for quality and playability by two more members of staff. Let us know any preferred setup requirements and we will be happy to oblige!


All new products come with a 12 month warranty as standard. Some products will come with an extended manufacturer’s warranty - these will be included with the product and will usually need to be activated after purchase via the manufacturer’s website. Ex Demo products will also come with a 12 month warranty. Pre-owned products come with a 3 month warranty.

Real time stock levels

Fed up with websites advertising guitar that they don’t actually have? So are we! The Guitar Village website is updated in real-time, so that means the second we sell out of a guitar the website will say ‘out of stock’. If it says ‘In Stock’, rest assured we do actually have it in stock and ready to go!

Actual image photography

We don’t want you to have any nasty surprises when you receive a guitar from us so we do our own photography in-house.

Any high-end guitar with a figured finish or unique features will have its own images. If you see “✓ Actual product in photograph(s)” next to the product listing, this will be the actual item you receive.

Any guitar priced under £2000 with an opaque/block finish, or lightly figured woods may have an example image of the guitar.

Click & collect

Don’t fancy the painful wait at home for the courier to deliver your new toy?

If you’re not a million miles away not come in and collect it from the shop? All you need to do it select “Collect from store” at the checkout, pay in full online then pop in with proof of purchase, along with some photo ID* and you can take it away right then and there!

*Photo ID must be a valid passport or driving license.

Ex Demo/New Old Stock Products

Occasionally we list items as ‘Ex Demo’ or ‘New Old Stock’. These are new but may not necessarily be in perfect condition and could have had minor repairs, marks, scratches and/or other defects.

These will be fully described and discounted accordingly.

At Guitar Village we're committed to offering you the very best shopping experience possible. We strive to provide you with an unmatched choice of guitars as well as our award-winning friendly customer service, combined with the best prices in the UK. Occasionally the odd price pops up a little cheaper somewhere else. We don't want any of our customers to ever have to decide between our high level of service and a lower price, so we will always endeavour to price match our UK competitors.

To qualify for a price match it must be:

  • From an official authorised dealer,
  • Identical to the product we are selling (model, colour, specs),
  • In stock and ready to ship,
  • Clearly advertised at the cheaper price on their website (not a price quoted over the phone),
  • An outright purchase price, not including finance, part exchange or any other offer.

Usually these cheaper prices are offered by online-only warehouse retailers with little overheads and a "stack 'em high, sell 'em cheap" philosophy, sacrificing the customer service that's essential to back-up any purchase.

When you buy from Guitar Village you can rest assured that your item will be:

  • In stock if the website says it is,
  • Guitars fully setup to any given requirements by one of our full time in-house guitar techs prior to dispatch,
  • Triple checked through our extensive quality control,
  • Safely and securely packaged, then dispatched using UPS - fully tracked and insured,
  • Full after-sales customer support.
