Black & White Ebony B&S
An instrument to die for
"The White Tiger"
This is Bellucci Guitars Latest Limited Edition Model. I have only come across 2 amazing sets of this Cambodian Species in the 20 years that I have been building guitars. It is very hard to put into words how beautiful this guitar is. Stunning is perhaps the word that does more justice. I had been on the lookout for a good set of Black and White Ebony for quite some time and when I was finally given the chance to get two sets. I did not hesitate an instant and immediately contacted those customers and players that have purchased One-of-a-kind Bellucci Guitars in the past and, just as I thought, they responded with a rotund "Yes !" when I offered them the possibility to build with this stunning and extremely rare Tropical Tonewood. Black & White Ebony comes from Cambodia and Laos (Thailand) Mainly. It is often referred to as Laotian or Cambodian Ebony. The grain is marvelous and beautifully book matched. A White Tiger is the feline that immediately came to mind when I first saw the set and that is the reason I called her "TheWhite Tiger". I decided to make a Black & White construction from beginning to end in order to keep the Tiger Motif in center stage. This beauty was commissioned by my great friend and Bellucci Guitars unconditional supporter Dan Flickstein. What a sound ! What ease of play. She is what every guitarist dreams to play and the generosity of her sound will literally keep you in awe. S.D.G.
The 9-braces Hauser fan is the result of many years of experimenting. It is based on Torres 4 fan brace design. The braces act as sound vibrations highways. They carry the vibration of each string to a specific spot on the soundboard. The variations on the 9 braces fan is enormous. The Luthier taylors each fan to achieve a specific sound and match the instrument with the rest of the woods used in the construction. I often use a mixture of Cedar, Spruce and Mahogany to achieve the best separation of voices.
Embossed Leather Case Included. The Bellucci hand embossed leather case is a work of art on its own right. Built by one of a handful of very talented leather embossers in Latin America. It takes countless hours of patient labor to emboss a single case.
Bellucci guitars are decorated using marvelous wood marquetry to enhance all her lines and put an accent on specific parts of the construction. The marquetry requires anywhere between 35 & 90 hours of highly skilled labor to be inlayed throughout the guitar. It is made entirely by hand using knives that each luthier typically manufactures himself. It takes the guitar to unsuspected levels of beauty. The marquetry also constitutes an often critical point of release of tension which is caused by the constant expanding and contracting of the woods used in guitar construction. These are due to such factors such as humidity and ambience temperature.
The Bellucci Limited Edition logo and label will be assigned to guitars I
build using extremely rare and amazingly figured woods in the
construction for both the back and sides and/or the top. These sets are
selected among hundreds of sets and their price is significantly higher
that the standard figured counterparts. 7 of the world best "wood
hunters" all the way from South East Asia, Oceania, Africa and the
Americas are constantly on the lookout to provide me with some amazing
sets for the Limited Edition series.
cutaway is very both beautiful and extremely useful. It
requires the highest level of luthery to be made and when it comes to
playability, it allows the player to access the F# on fret 14 with
amazing ease thus covering the 14 most used frets in the classical
Some Sets for either the Back and Sides, for the Top or both can be quite stunning and rare when it comes to the figure and grain that they display. It is as if nature, knowing the final destiny of its creature, "prepared" the wood in such a way that its grain, hidden to the human eye and to the world, silently develops a breathtaking beauty that comes to life when the dead tree is sawn. Getting the same identical figure is practically speaking impossible but I strive at getting figured wood that resembles and transmits the same vital impression as the one here depicted
Carbon Fiber is stronger than an equivalent volume of steel. The Carbon fiber truss rod prevents neck twisting and/or bending due to the excessive tension that many modern brands of strings bring about. It adds practically no weight to the construction and will keep your neck straight for ages.
