Custom Shop Guitars Crafted in Italy - Paoletti Guitars

At Make'n Music, we celebrate Paoletti Guitars®, where craftsmanship meets creativity and each chord resonates with passion and precision.

Nestled among the captivating Tuscan landscapes, tradition converges with innovation as age-old techniques blend seamlessly with modern precision to forge instruments that embody Italy's timeless artisanal legacy. Amidst the enchanting scenery of the Tuscan hills, where Fabrizio Paoletti's family once produced Chianti red wine, reclaimed chestnut wood from ancient wine barrels revealed its potential to create instruments of exquisite sound and enduring quality.

For over 15 years, Paoletti Guitars® has made this chestnut wood its signature, breathing new life into materials steeped in history.

Paoletti Instruments

Paoletti Instruments was established by Fabrizio Paoletti in 2005. These custom boutique electric guitars are inspired by the most iconic designs in rock history and each one is meticulously handcrafted in Italy using ancient Chestnut wood from the Paoletti Family's Chianti barrel reserve. Like many of the finest creations, Paoletti Guitars grew from a strong understanding of the past and an artist’s thirst for creativity. Based in Tuscany, Italy, the Paoletti family were producers of fine Chianti during the 19th Century. With reverence for the past while at the same time wanting to make the best use of the materials at hand, Fabrizio Paoletti began tapping his supply of the 130-170 year old Chestnut wood, formerly used to craft wine barrels for the old family business. He quickly realized that this well-seasoned wood gave his instruments a unique and impressive sound.
