Meticulous craftsmanship meets family tradition in this unique signature instrument.

Paoletti guitars are hand crafted in Italy from aged chestnut wine casks. These casks have been used since the late 1800s by the Paoletti family winery, and the wood is singular in the world of boutique guitars, providing the warm, yet lively tone that comes from well-aged wood. Each instrument is a unique piece, with superb fit and finish and a matchless vibe. This signature guitar, designed to the specs of Guns ‘n’ Roses and studio guitarist Richard Fortus, features a reverse headstock, Paoletti’s custom-designed, hand-wound pickups, custom bridge and brass metalwork, and includes a custom hardshell case and signed Certificate of Authenticity.
