Paoletti Richard Fortus Signature Cream
Guns 'n Roses Guitarist Richard Fortus' Signature Paoletti!
Richard Fortus in one of the longest-serving members of Guns 'n Roses and has previously made waves in bands such as Thin Lizzy and The Dead Daisies. For his work in Guns 'n Roses he was looking for the perfect guitar to complement Slash's heavy sound with a brighter, more twangy sound. The Paoletti Richard Fortus Signature is therefore a Signature guitar in the truest sense of the word. We are not dealing here with a few minor adjustments to an existing model, but with a completely new design! The basis is formed by an LP-Junior-like body shape with a bolt-on neck and Reverse Headstock. This design in combination with the six-saddle ashtray bridge makes this Paoletti already sound very snappy and fresh acoustically. Plug in the guitar and you'll understand even better why a single coil and a P90 were chosen. These emphasize even more this direct and punchy character!
Like every Paoletti guitar, this Richard Fortus Signature is also made of chestnut wood, which comes from old wine barrels in the Paoletti family. The guitar is further completed by a cool brass pickguard, Kluson tuners and tasteful aging on the body. Including Paoletti Hardshell Case.
