This Marvelous Hard Maple B&S Queen is stunning from every angle. My family & I decided to donate this gorgeous guitar to our dearest Sisters in Christ The Carmelite Nuns of Asunción. Sister Maura of The Mother of God and a few other sisters from the Carmelite monastery are studying guitar with my daughter Chiara and we simply could not resist the urge to give this generous women a token of our deepest appreciation for her immense love and for consecrating their lives to our Lord for the salvation of our souls. Sister Maura emanates goodness and you can see the image of Jesus in her every gesture and word. "Chiquitunga" is the name of one of Maura's Carmelite sisters who is currently undergoing the Canonization process in Rome in order to become a Saint in the Catholic Church. She is already Venerable and all of Paraguay is praying for Chiquitunga to become the first Paraguayan woman to be proclaimed Saint in history.
My family and I decided to donate 30% of the proceeds of the sale of each "Camelite Guitar" to the Carmelite Monastery of Asunción. We pray that you help us contribute to the livelihood of these Holy ladies.
In the image above Mother Raquel of the Holy Spirit and Maura of the Mother of God are admiring Chiquitunga Guitar and the S.D.G. written inside.
My family and I have been devoted of Chiquitunga for many years and the favors we received from Heaven thanks to her intercession are simply impossible to count. This is our small way to give back.
The contrasting Black and White handmade marquetry that I alternated all over bring out her amazing curves and crown as the Queen that she is and are emotive resembling the Carmelite vest. Maple is in my opinion if not the best one of the 3-4 best tone woods on the planet. Price wise, it is by far the best and the wood adapts perfectly to every climate on Earth. The Gorgeous Hard Maple brings stunning visual appeal to this Bellucci Guitar model. The blonde body is accompanied by marvelous Ebony marquetry to create the contrast I was looking for. The Spruce top color-matched with the Hard Maple creates a perfect visual harmony. The sound will simply blow you away. She has a huge sound with a bass that sends a big punch all around and you will feel her body vibrate generously with every plucking of the right hand. The trebles are perfect and the mid ranges accompany the sound shortening the gap between the sustained bass and the crystal clear trebles. You can appreciate the generous sustain in Romance and Asturias as well as her amazing punch which is always in centerstage when the music demands it. She comes with a deluxe hand Embossed Leather hardshell case. Worldwide shipping is included. She is simply put perfect ! Carmelite Monastery, Asuncion, July 2017. S.D.G.
