la magnifica chitarra in Ziricote - top in alpine spruce, è arrivata.
L'ho suonata, incredibile la pienezza e la durata del suono, l'agevolezza della mano sinistra. Devo ammettere che mi ha colpito, è proprio un gioiello. Cerco di immaginarmi cosa sarà fra 6 mesi.Anche se è secondario, è molto bella, l'abinamento ziricote e pino è veramente indovinato. Ottime le rifiniture.
Ti scriverò più avanti per presentarmi meglio, intanto ti ringrazio

the magnificent Ziricote guitar with the Alpine Spruce top has arrived. I played her. The fullness of sound is unbelievable and so is sustain. Easy on the left hand. I am really struck, she's a jewel. I cannot imagine what she will sound like in 6 mmonths ! The Ziricote /Spruce combination is striking and teh setailing is right on teh spot ! Perefct finish.
I'll write again in teh future. Thanks

I'm staring at my beautiful Zorro right now. In the low light of my living room, the pieces of pearl in my rosette shine like little jewels, and the birds are casting tiny glimmers of color. I fell asleep on the couch last night just staring at her! Everyone that I've shown her to is blown away! She has a very sweet tone and the harmonics simply sing. The intonation is perfect; the tone is even all across the fretboard, and she is very easy to play. This is an amazing guitar in every way! The name Calypso came to me when I first saw her on your website; I like it.

Not only is my Tiger BEAUTIFUL, she plays like a dream! She actually resonates INTO me when I play! WOW!! And she rings! The sustain is incredible. She inspires me to be the very best I can be and I look forward to my next Bellucci creation. I’m ecstatic about owning and playing this instrument!!
I thought you’d enjoy seeing the unveiling, so we shot a little video of the process. Barbara is behind the camera and you’ll hear her get caught up in the beauty of the Tiger.
If I had the money, I would have you make me a Flamenco, a 6 string acoustic and the 12 string acoustic. Your guitars are magnificent!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE MUSIC IN YOU!!!
Your (devoted!!) fan,

Arrived home from Canada today and couldn't unpack my suitcases or anything until I had a chance to sit down tune it up and play it. The sound is wonderful and I know it's just going to get better as time passes. I had both addresses covered for it's arrival. MY friend unpacked it for me and thought I should just put it a glass case and never touch it again. Well that is not going to happen. I got invited to accompany a children's Christmas Program in Montana this year and this Beauty is going along. Thank you much for this work of art. God Bless

Zorro arrived today in all his glory. It is a beautiful guitar and arrived in perfect condition. I could not resist tuning her up giving her a brief spin. She has a very balance voice with great sustain. She is now resting in her case in a climate controlled room. I look forward to spending a lot of time with her.

Received my lovely "GLO"...My it is exquisite and the case is a masterful piece of work!! The packing was unbelievably well done and nothing was damaged at all!!! I tuned it and am playing it and the sound is out of this world. The keyboard is so easy on the fingers that I am thrilled and it is almost the only guitar that I play now although I do have 5!!!!

I really love my Bellucci guitar. It is absolutely beautiful, the art work and the sound. And it has really opened up a lot in the pas few weeks. Also it is a lot easier to play to that is very helpful also. Would never change it for a different one.

The Anaconda II has arrived and is even more beautiful than the pictures on the web site. My only wish is to be able to play her as well as she looks one day. It is 39 degrees C and 75% humidity as I write. Fortunately it is cooler at my lodgings where the Anaconda II is getting its first breath of New England.
Thanks to you and your fine luthiers at Mangore, ciao.

I had to let you know that I received my new " Tiger " yesterday, much sooner than I anticipated. DHL did a wonderful job and I was able to track the progress with the tracking number, which added to the anticipation. The protective packaging was amazing, there's no way you could damage the goods unless it fell out of the plane.
When I opened the box I was stunned by the beauty of the case, definitely a work of art. The guitar is truly breathtaking! I haven't had much time to play yet, but neck size definitely makes a difference in my ability to reach some difficult chords that have frustrated me in the past.The tone is as beautiful as the guitar is. I'm in love with this guitar. You and your group of artisans are amazing. I'm already considering having you build a steel string for me in the future ( I can't let my wife see this)
Thanks for your dedication.

I have just received the most beautiful instrument I have ever seen.
I have no words other than these...
She whispered of ancient streets
speckled with gold
A gift from the setting sun
She smelled of soft moonlit wind
Chased along thick swaying branches
by startled green leaves
She remembered long clear summer days
and laughed strong and true
like ambered honey
She flung her skirt and danced
Exploding with sensual rhythms
Her radiant skin sparkling under the stars
quietly, happily, surrendering
to a life more profound

I wanted to give this marvelous guitar a “full run-through.” This guitar is everything that I have dreamnt
of at night during that short time between deep sleep and the awareness that you are dreaming. I have owned or still own numerous guitars: Cordoba 1A with Brazilian Rosewood sides and back, Yairi CY 200, Cordoba Custom Artist Flamed European Sides and Back, 2004 Ramirez 1A Tradicional with a European Spruce top lined with cypress for the sides. None of these guitars can compare to the beautiful guitar that I now posses from your competent and artistic workshop—I am not sure who owns who, the guitar, or myself—I am just the ‘Bullfighter’ in the ring and the dance is exhilarating. All that besides, I have been a manager of a local guitar store in years past, adjunct studio teacher for the local State University, which one of my students owns one of your cut-away guitars, and have close friends who are salesmen for the local Guitar Center. Speaking of which, the salesmen at Guitar Center anted me to play an early 1990’s Brazilian Wood Ramirez 1A that they Had just recently acquired. I took my Bellucci guitar with me, because I wanted to brag and educate my friends of the treasures that are lurking out in the world of the wonderful Internet—Hello Mr. Renato. Needless to say, they were very impress with my beautiful Bellucci. I pointed out to them the many fine details that you could not find on a custom shop Breedlove, Martin, or R Taylor—I mention these steel string manufactures because they are held in such high esteem here in the states. “Notice how the upper bout is shorter in depth then the lower bout, notice how much the back is ‘curved’ both longitudinally across the instrument and from side to side—something no one will find on a present day high dollar semi-hand made manufactured guitar including a present day Ramirez IA, which a scant reading of an old Irving Sloan Book would attest to the need and excellence of such construction.
This goes beyond stating the obvious of the exquisite detail of the Bellucci guitars, which I would think any average person could enjoy just ‘surfing’ the Web. Take my word on it: the action, sound, projection, and dare I say Duende of this instrument has inspired me to get up at 4:00 A.M. to practice. I have performed two different recitals and gigs in the past few weeks, something I would not have the inspiration to do in years past—I had presently given-up on the notion of adding performing guitar to the family’s budget—I am a father of a single income family with three beautifully children. Thank you Mr. Bellucci!! I really mean it—Many Thanks—I am trying to pass the word around of your awesome guitars.

I can't hardly believe how the sound of this instrument has improved already and as you say if it keeps improving which I'm sure it well over the next 4 to 6 months I won't be able to put it down. And to think the one I have yet to receive will likely sound better than this is very hard to believe. I am extremely pleased with this work of art and sound and sure to be more so in the future. I am now even more excited about my next masterpiece. Just for your information I visited a music store today to purchase some new strings and played several of the instruments and not a one can compare even close to the Tiger, that's what I call it and it's not at it's full potential. Thanks again to you and your team of masters. God Bless and let's never let the music die. Thanks again.
