Paoletti and Guns N’ Roses’ Richard Fortus announce the 4Tus Leather Hot Baby Junior,

Italian builder Paoletti Guitars has announced a new product titled 4Tus Leather Hot Baby Junior, the company’s second electric guitar collaboration with Guns N’ Roses’ Richard Fortus.

The new guitar features a body made of chestnut wood reclaimed from 130 to 150-year-old wine barrels -which according to company founder Fabrizio Paoletti.

“Chestnut is alive – it breathes,” he told Guitar Player. “It’s a wood that brings a high number of harmonics, which I think is something that is very important, and it is also the king of sustain. There is a focus on middle-bass frequencies, but the tone is also malleable, depending on the other woods used in the guitar.”

The single-cut model features a roasted Canadian maple neck, an aged nickel pickguard, a white croc pattern Italian leather top and a 4tus logo laser-engraved on the headstock.

The handmade pickups with custom electronics were personally designed by Richard fortus guitarist, who explains, “the reverse angle on the tele bridge pickup gives the low end more attack and clarity where the top strings are warmer.”
