I wanted to take a minute to Congratulate you on your new line of Bellucci LIMITED EDITION guitars!
They are just stunning!!
I wanted to share a Very short story.
I took my Bellucci Babe to my Classical Guitar lesson for the first time this week. I figured a 90 year old "Been-There-Done-That" kind of teacher no much would get him exited. Well, was I wrong?
He just went WOW!,…WOW!,…WOW! for about 10 minutes. He was just stunned with the unique beauty of the instrument I was holding!!, and when I started playing her, he was amazed at the response of all the notes, the lows, the highs, and especially the harmonics.
(I'm playing Romance, Fandanguillo, Plegaria from Guillermo Gomez, and a few other basic pieces…)

My worries about customs were smoke they cleared Package 4pm yesterday.
Zorro Arrived 3.45pm . Here are some photo attachments of his first hour in Bunclody his new home. Tuned him and played Villalobos Prelude no 1 and Pernambuco`s Sons de Carhillios.. awsome bases wonderful trebles so loud the Harmonics are perfect. None of the buzzing im used to. Radiused neck got used to it immediately. Able to reach the first and second chords of Cavatine without pain as I told you I injured my thumb joint last year.
Some friends came to see him and awed by the beauty of the Guitar it is eye candy. The rosette is a surprise to me it is very beautiful also the sound ports wonderful sound over all and knowing that it is only going to improve is a further bonus..
I think this Guitar was made for Bach... Just played " Air on G string" it is wonderful the long sustain is made for it so happy thank you again
Update: April 3, 2010
Let me thank you from the bottom of my Heart again.. this guitar is awsome. stupendous, amazing....there ar`nt words to describe the quality of the basses. the deep sonorous continuous sustain I can sit for 10 minutes and explore the simple E major Chord. IT takes on a whole new world of meaning. The Trebles are Bright, endlessly lyrical, and the separation of voice is extraordinary. I have 4 other Guitars and two of them are very good but this is a new unexpected experience for me. The action is wonderful and the flatter neck at centre is marvellous. I could keep on and on. You have created a work of great art. this guitar is easily better then anything I have seen and heard in top Guitar Studios in New York, London or Paris
Thank you and many Hugs and Blessings
saving for another.(recession or not)

Thank you so very much! The guitar you made for me arrived yesterday and is just as beautiful as I had hoped. I am absolutely delighted with such a lovely instrument; the weight and balance, the feel of the guitar, the rich round bass and mellow but very clear sweet trebles not to mention the beautiful rosewood and alpine spruce make for a really wonderful experience.
I am a bit of a traditionalist and was a little apprehensive of the radius fret board, violin tie, arm rest and the 640mm. scale length but you are quite correct; all your innovations make for very great improvements. Thank you once again; may you long keep crafting such wonderful guitars.
With very best wishes, Peter.

Just a quick note to let you know that my guitar arrived safe and sound Friday, March 12.
Ease of play is fantastic – I finally can play barre chords with ease and style
Many thanks, (tears of joy!)

My beautiful Custom Bellucci guitar just continues to get better with every pluck of the strings (how it manages to get better than it already was, Ill never know!!). It sincerely is the absolute pride of my small arsenal of instruments, and all who are lucky enough to view and play her are left in awe!!

She is beautiful. Her trebles are sharp loud and clear, her intonation is perfect, her action is perfectly set, she feels very comfortable to play. She was very cold coming out of the crate and even then her sound was warmth (I did not tune her up until she warmed up a tittle bit). Have not had much time to play her yet. The grain on the African Blackwood is fantastic. The arm rest helps position my hand and fore arm very comfortably. The radiused fretboard along with the large scale neck give my left hand a lot of freedom. She has not even been played for a day and she is allready making great sound I will make it a point to send you a recording in about 3 months. I feast my eyes in the beautiful inlay work and the marketry. I cannot thankyou enough, Best Regards, Ken

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas I sure did. I just had my first lesson on her and I'm hooked. Last night we had a musical get together and John (my teacher) tuned her up and played her. Renato she is everything and more than you promised. Her sound is both strong, mellow and wistful with a tremendous sustain all that I need to sing with. She is a 10 in every department as voted by all who met her. We hooked up her electrics and wow you could hear her all over the house. John said she is one of the nicest guitars he has ever played and has never seen anything that looks like her!
If you ever have anyone who wants to call me for a reference on either customer service or quality please give them my phone number...you have been amazing.

Hi my friend how are you? My guitar and I are getting along super well, she tolerates my fumbling well and when I get it right she is amazing. I flew back home to Canada the other day for a week and did not take her, had the opportunity to play a spare of my teachers. It was a valuable lesson I had not realized how different she was... I would describe the difference as a Ford to a Porsche even in my inexperienced hands!
I hope all is well in your worlds

Today, the guitar has finally arrived. Thank you for this wonderful instrument!
It is truly a masterpiece made. I am surprised by the wonderful warm sound: a long-lasting sustain, powerful bass and clear highs, a balanced-to-high in the layers.
The string action is optimal. I think I've found the ultimate sound.
Your happy friend Rolf.
My wife is jealous because I only play my new babe.

WOW !!!! She has arrived & what a beauty. Looks & sounds fantastic. The quality, timber & craftsmanship is a credit to you & the team. The tone is beautiful and it is hard to believe that, as you say, it will improve over the next six months.
You and your organisation have been extremely efficient, excellent service and one of the best web sites on the net. Also very quick & efficient service from the freight company from Paraguay to Australia, great!!
Once again Renato, many thanks to you and the team,

10 days in and serial #845 has played in nicely, sweet tone, even between bass and treble.. wonderful playability, notes above the 12th fret, harmonics and sustain.
My hope was for a guitar that is better than my 1981 Kohno 30, that has been *achieved* (my Kohno has earned her well earned retirement) (Your South American Jacaranda trees are coming into bloom in Sydney)
Congradulations to you all, regards,

Happy Christmas to me.. my guitar arrived today she is absolutely beautiful .Thank you so much for making the buying of her such a smooth and hassle free experience.

And I was in AWE when I saw it. It is a masterpiece and a work of art unlike any other I have seen. TIEP can't wait to play it, but he says he must let it acclimate for a few hours before he plucks away. He says the work is amazing. I am in tears Renato... I'd like to thank you again and show my gratitude towards your efforts with all the contributions you've put into your love for guitar. THANK YOU my friend and maybe I will buy one for myself sometime next year. It was fun and I will recommend everyone I know to you! HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!

I got her two days ago. Everything is perfect. Beautiful design & amazing sound - I love the bases especially the E ( rounded and sustain).
