Paoletti Stratospheric Wine, John Norum Signature
2 965,00 €
"Paoletti instruments® was established in 2005 as the natural evolution of my guitar luthier and amplifier tech activities." Inspired by the shapes of the most iconic guitars in rock history, we started handcrafting guitars using 130-150 years old chestnut woods, coming from Paoletti Family's Chianti wine barrels reserve.
Like many of the best creations, Paoletti Guitars grew out of a strong understanding of the past and an artist’s active imagination for the future. Based in Tuscany, Italy, where from the end of the 19th century the Paoletti family once produced Chianti red wine, much of that thirst has been past down to Fabrizio Paoletti. In the spirit of paying reverence to the past and at the same time making the best use of the materials at hand, Paoletti began to make use of the ancient wine barrels left from the old family business. With many of these being made of 130-170 year old chestnut wood, it was soon realised that this gave the instruments a unique and impressive sound.
Here is a Paoletti Stratopheric Wine Series which features their signature 130-150 year old reclaimed Chestnut body! A piece of art signed by Mr. John Norum (EUROPE) Our Staff was at Festival Guitare en Scène in France to deliver the new Paoletti Guitar “Stratospheric Wine custom J.Norum” in the hands of Mr. John Norum himself. Paoletti factory has been worthy of consideration in the past, it’s a worldwide well-known brand today and it’s going to be even bigger in the future, with collaborations like that.
