Paoletti Guitars - Richard Fortus Signature
Richard Fortus has been one of the main driving forces behind Guns and Roses since 2002, taking on the role of rhythm guitarist. He’s been a Paoletti artist for a number of years now. This specific guitar was signed by Richard himself at the 2020 Namm show. All Paoletti guitars are hand-crafted in Italy by Fabrizio Paoletti. Part of the magic of these instruments is their wood selection.— All of his guitars are made out of re-claimed chestnut Chiante barrels, which are at least 150 years old.—The craftsmanship as well as the sound are superb.
