What a Sunning Guitar ! It is the generalized reaction of everybody in the studio. The beauty that emanates from this one-in-a-million Hawaiian Koa B&S beauty is simply incomparable. Who would have taught that a wood until recently used in the construction of Hawaiian canoes, would end up being a superlative tone wood?! Merging every wood using deep radish Padauk Bindings, Luxury Matching handmade marquetry not to mention the "Pixel Style" Russian Rosette from Tula, Near Siberia. ABOVE: August 2017, Playing this magnificent Koa Guitar at an exhibition at Leticia Chaves' Residence in Asunción. Leticia is holding a Custom Bellucci Maple guitar she commissioned a few years back. The Curly Sinker Redwood Top is not only an eye candy but helps in the production of one of the best Bellucci guitar sounds ever. Powerful, expressive and with a clear separation of voices thanks to the special Hauser bracing. Sustain and Resonance are second to none. The Redwood used on the top has been aging for over 100 years ! Although she is created as a pure breed classical she can be an all-purpose guitar because her sound is easily adaptable to different repertoire styles. Its balance, warmth and expressiveness are amazing. She shines in arpeggio and chord scenarios. She has enough punch and sustain that she will never push the player beyond his limits. It’s a great choice for the concert or recording player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. Great warmth, deep mid-ranges, and deep basses, are achieved thanks in part to the customized Hauser bracing and the new exclusive transversal strut in the fan brace. Premium marquetry elevates her to royalty levels. The 640mm fingerboard scale make her easy to play even for people with very small hands. The Carbon fiber Truss Rod ensures rigidity to the Cedar Neck allowing to mount any string brand or tension. A typical Bellucci Guitars triple Maple and Rosewood Decoration of the neck add the final details to this awesome instrument. San Bernardino, September 2017. S.D.G.
