Micheletti Guitars

Rick first began repairing and building guitars over forty years ago. In 1994, with a newly constructed shop, he switched to guitar building full time and has been at it ever since. Rick has united his skills and observations as a guitar repairman and his years of design experience with his passion to create guitars. The result of this fusion of skills is a hand-crafted instrument that is a pleasure to play, hear and see. He loves to work closely with his clients to create an instrument that is stirring to them. His goal is to create an instrument that inspires his clients to new levels of performance and creativity.

Rick has been at this for over four decades now and has really honed his craft. He's an innovative builder and his unique rigid rim design is incredibly comfortable and has yielded some incredible instruments.

    2015 Micheletti Peregrine Brazilian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce

    Out of stock

    We love it when a parlor size guitar strikes it rich! This 2015 Micheletti Peregrine packs an expansive voice into a trim package that’s characterized by round trebles, lots of color and dynamism in the bass, and a lively responsiveness that can quickly fill the room if you’re not careful. Brazilian Rosewood back and sides (seriously gorgeous example of this rarest of tonewoods), Adirondack Spruce on top for extra stiffness and power, and then luthier Rick Micheletti finished it off with a 12-fret neck to warm up those trebles for a round, fat sound.
    The Peregrine is trimmed out in Abalone from head to toe, and features individual saddles for each string, so dialing in your perfect setup is easy as pie. This Micheletti comes wrapped up in a Hoffee flight case, and is more than ready to go anywhere, at any time.

    Here's an additional demo with our own Al Petteway:

    Micheletti Guitars Rigid Rim Acoustic Guitar

    Out of stock

    Here we have a Micheletti Osprey "rigid rim" jumbo in Western Red Cedar and Padauk. The rigid rim is a patented design element that Rick has developed in an effort to stiffen the sides to aid in greater projection and improved treble response. Additionally, this makes for a very comfortable instrument with no sharp corners. Indeed, the Osprey has a great big voice with clearly defined trebles, thanks to the intense Padauk back and sides, and plenty of warmth and bass response courtesy of the Cedar top.
