Italian guitar makers Paoletti are known for bringing unique, eye-catching designs to their instruments, with a stunning attention to detail paid to playability, electronics, and aesthetics. The Richard Fortus Custom is a shining example of that dedication, with a truly unique look and feel that's made to keep up with the renowned Guns N' Roses guitarist. Like all Paolettis, this guitar's body is made of Chestnut recovered from wine barrels, with a pure curly maple neck that's been caramel-roasted for a stable, sturdy in-hand feel. What really makes this guitar stand out, however, is its Italian Leather top and hand-made pickups. While the Leather top draws in your eyes, your ears will love the combination of a Paoletti Slant single-coil bridge pickup, and a Paoletti P90 in the neck. Both are rated at 7.5K ohms, and hit a great sweet spot of tonal versatility and punch. Paoletti left no stone unturned in designing this electric guitar, with premium components, a fantastic pickup set, and striking aesthetics. Hardshell case included.
