HIS NAME IS TERRY REID

Terry Reid visited Paoletti Guitars on August 2022
in order to create a project we were developing for a while.
Let us tell you more about it.
And stay tuned on our platforms to know more about it.

WHO IS TERRY REID?
Terry Reid’s the man who suggested Jimmy Page that he contact Robert Plant and John Bonham for the new group he was forming, Ritchie Blackmore also asked Terry about a singing position, which never came to pass. Aretha Franklin’s stated that The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Terry Reid were the best England had to offer in 1968.
He underwent two World Tours with The Rolling Stones, US tours with Cream, UK tours with Jethro Tull and Fleetwood Mac, The Isle of White Festival in 1969 and Glastonbury in 1970, played at Mick Jagger’s wedding.

THE PROJECT, in words from Terry Reid himself.
“My Relationship with Paoletti grows everyday. Their ideas and craftsmanship is better than anything I came across. Just recently, they contacted me on the idea to make a Limited Edition of a first run of 5 guitars made in the mold my telecaster I had for so many years. I am shocked to see it and I can’t wait to show it to Joe Bonamassa who has my original tele!
These unique 5 guitars, handcrafted to the original are amazingly the same plus some extra features I learned over the years.”

TERRY REID

Terry’s old guitar, now owned by Joe Bonamassa. The story of this guitar is amazing, it is an instrument that carries the top highlights of the musical history, that Terry himself lived in.
