Description

Richard Fortus Signature #3
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 bass 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.

Richard in 2001 joined legendary hard rock band Guns N' Roses and began touring with the band and recording for the bands long awaited “Chinese Democracy” record.

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.
