Richard Fortus Introduces His Second Paoletti Signature Guitar in Premier Guitar Video


The Guns N’ Roses guitarist demos his leather-topped, P-90 and T-style pickup dream machine, handmade to his specs from 150-year-old wine casks in Florence, Italy by Paoletti Guitars. Ted Drozdowski from Premier Guitars interviewed Fortus at The NAMM Show about his second model with the Italian makers.

Paoletti Guitars are handmade in Tuscany, Italy, using chestnut wood reclaimed from 130 to 150-year-old wine barrels, the effect being layers of tone and sustain that feed a guitarist’s sound.  Lyon & Healy Corporation is the North American Distributor of Paoletti Guitars.
