Paoletti Guitars is proud to announce a new 2021 Richard Fortus Signature guitar, created according to the personal specifications of Richard Fortus. It features a new Paoletti 6 saddles bridge, and flat top, without leather. Reverse headstock with Modern Tuners.
What makes a Paoletti unique is the careful selection and use 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, harmony, and offers tonal sustain across the full harmonic spectrum.
Paoletti Pickups for Richard Fortus are handmade and manufactured 100% in house. 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.
