Paoletti Guitars are proud to announce the 2021 Richard Fortus Signature guitar created to the personal specifications of Richard Fortus who plays with Guns 'N' Roses. It features a Paoletti 6 saddle bridge, a flat top (without leather) and a reverse headstock with modern tuners.
What makes a Paoletti guitar unique is the careful selection and implementation of aged chestnut woods, preserved and reclaimed from our 130+ year old wine barrels. The vibrations that a chestnut body generates is one of a kind in frequency, and tone, offering incredible resonating sustain across the full harmonic spectrum “the reverse angle on the bridge pickup gives the low end more attack and clarity where the top strings are warmer" say's Richard Fortus.
Paoletti pickups for Richard Fortus are handmade and manufactured 100% in house at Paoletti. Wired to the guitars electronics with a 22 AWG tinned cloth wire. Each pickup is coated with a wax layer to maintain integrity and to protect from any external interference. And best of all, they're built to last! The guitar features Richard Fortus custom wiring electronic, a "secret" circuit that allows you to have an high output at low levels of Volume. The Richard Fortus Signature #3 guarantees satisfaction for every musician looking to own a real piece of our family's history and for that one of a kind guitar that really stands out from the crowd.
