I got the classical sinker redwood with brazilian rosewood. It came safely and words do not describe its beauty. I am already saving for another perhaps African Blackwood or something similiar. I am very happy. Thanks again for the beautiful work. I have several friends that I have also recommended your instruments to. Thank you.

The 8th Wonder of the world has arrived ! She's simply fabulous, refined, a true masterpiece made with first quality materials and attention to detail. This is not only my opinion but the opinion of every single person that has seen her. They were all in awe !
Not to mention the comfort in playing ! A true pleasure to play ! I have no words...the neck is top notch ! ...The sound is already fabulous with great separation of voices even if it is early to make a "final judgment"... still, its already fabulous. You have been wonderful. Thank you and my dear God for giving you this good taste and mastery to bring such a masterpiece to life.
Best regards Fede!.
Caro Renato l'ottava meraviglia del mondo e' arrivata, e' seplicemente meravigliosa, raffinata , una vera opera d'arte, eseguita con materiali di ottima qualita' e pregevolezza, e non e solo un mio parere ma anche di tutte le persone che l'anno vista, sono rimasti basiti.....per non parlare della comodita' con cui si suona.Un vero piacere suonarla. Non ho parole il manico e' una vera bomba!! .....il suono e' gia ottimo con una buona distinzione tra le voci, anche se ancora sia presto per dare un giudizio finale, comunque gia' eccellente...siete stati veamente magnifici ....grazie a tutti voi e al buon Dio che vi ha donato tale gusto e maestria nel plasmare tale opera d'arte tanti saluti Fede!.

I received the new guitar about a week or so before Christmas and wanted to live with her for a while before I wrote you. Well, she's Gorgeous!--the dark Indian Macassar wood is just beautiful and your choice of bindings and purfling along with the top makes her a beautifully integrated work of art. A friend looked at her, his eyes popped out and he said "WOW!!".
I tuned her up, strummed a chord and said " Yes, this is good!". I have played her almost everyday since then, and she has opened up--deep and distinct bases with very nice clear trebles--and good balance. The intonation is right on and the neck is really nice--a pleasure to play. I'm also glad that you emphasized the 640mm scale on your website and even more glad that I went with that on the guitar! It makes a noticeable difference.
I want to thank you for working with me in getting this guitar--she is an inspiration to play! The next time someone asks me where they can find a fine guitar, I will have them play the one you built for me and then direct them to your site. Thank you very much,

I am at work and just received the guitar. She is magnificent! The workmanship is outstanding, and the guitar in person is actually even better looking than in the pictures (and who thought that would be possible??!). The leather case is also the perfect compliment to her beauty. She was obviously packed with great care, and you made this process a pleasure. Believe me, not being able to play a guitar before spending thousands requires a great deal of faith! Renato, you said you would build me a masterpiece..and you certainly did! Thank you.

All the best for You Your family and Your team.

I just got the guitar this morning. What a beauty ! She's really stunning!
Un abbraccio grande.

She has arrived safely and she is absolutely beautiful! My La Dama is a work of art for sure. The attention to detail in the wood work is excellent Renato and the woods are spectacular as you said. …the tone is sweet and round yet clear on each string…just as I hoped it would be.
She is wonderful Renato…thank you and your team for this very special guitar. I can’t wait to show her off….She seems to like La Catedral by A. Barrios…one of my favorites…wonderful tone for that piece.

We received our second Bellucci Masterpiece yesterday. It is truly a work of art. Everything about it is more than perfect. The sound is truly beautiful as is the choice of wood and hardware.
When Miles opened the box that it arrived in, his eyes opened up the size of dinner plates.
My son's guitar teacher said that the neck was straighter than his Ramirez and said the sweet tone was reminiscent of a Hauser.
Please thank all the people involved in making her. Bravo Renato.

My new Belluci arrived quickly (the delivery was monitored and I was notified each portion of the journey) and in perfect condition. The wonderful aroma of spruce filled the room upon opening the case. Both my wife and son commented on the construction and the graceful appearance of this instrument. I also appreciated the subtle design enhancements like the rosette pattern being added to the bridge. The "action" of the neck truly causes less strain on the left hand for me. Very helpful for we "older students" who are not always as flexible as we might like to be. How thoughtful of you to include the Care of the Instrument document.

I have received the Zorro African Blackwood doubletop sinker redwood guitar and you are absolutely correct in saying that she is a beauty to behold. She is everything in the pictures and even more. Your instructions state a reasonable amount of time for the guitar to acclimate and the guitar started to produce an unbelievable sound. All this considering the guitar is not broken in yet. I can hardly wait for the real sound to resonate from this guitar.
This guitar produces a bass that has to be heard to appreciate. The sound port adds to the enjoyment and the guitar strings are perfectly set up. The workmanship is first class and anyone who has heard otherwise about a Bellucci guitar need not worry. This guitar is an instrument to appreciate and enjoy. My other two reputable guitars do not even come close to this Zorro treasure. When one enjoys looking at a masterpiece, one enjoys playing it even more.
Thanks you Renato for coming through with this wonderful guitar.

Just letting you know how the guitars are doing after playing them for a good period of time. Hal wanted to wait so his flamenco could come to it's full sound. He wanted me to tell you the sound is great good for many styles of music. Also the workmanship is excellent ! He wants to thank you for the quality of the instrument and the easy of play. My cocobolo is beyond words. The over tones are the best and one of the most beautiful guitars I've seen. We both thank you and hope to have more in the future. We are always going to recommend your guitars to our students.

My guitar arrived on 5/8/08 in perfect condition. On opening the crate and then the case, I was taken aback by the aesthetic beauty of this instrument. The quality craftsmanship of the build and the setup is just breathtaking.
The climate here in Ireland is considerably different to your own so I decided to wait one week to allow the guitar to adjust to its new climate and then I tuned the guitar to play it for the first time.The tone is spectacular and the instrument itself so responsive and easy to play. I have followed all your instructions in your notes which I thank you for. I have played guitar for over 40yrs and now teach classical guitar and I can tell you that I have never seen, or heard, or played a more beautiful guitar than the one you have just sent me.
Finally, a huge "Thank You" to you and your master craftsmen for creating such a wonderful instrument that I will cherish, and enjoy playing for the rest of my life.
Yours in music,

I received the guitar a few days ago. I am very impressed with your creations. Your Work of Art is absolutely magnificent! It's beautiful in every way. I celebrated with a bottle of champagne and a couple of friends when I opened the very well boxed guitar. Everybody was so excited to see it come out of its box.
I tuned it and started playing a few songs that I know. The sound it produces is just a pleasure to hear. It even made me , a beginner, sound good. I can't believe I own such a beautiful musical instrument !!!
