Paoletti Guitars Stratospheric Wine
Richie Sambora Signature Model
Hand-Made, Custom Boutique Electric Guitar
Crafted from 130-170 year old reclaimed Chestnut!
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.
This particular instrument is a Stratospheric model built to Richie Sambora’s signature specifications. As part of the “Wine Series” it features the 130-150 year old reclaimed Chestnut body, as well as the distinctive distressed look with Brass Tacks and Gator Skin aesthetics.
