Ziggy's guitar arrived! She is absolutely beautiful. Ziggy played her for many hours today. Our family thanks you very much for all your patience and we also thank all the people involved in making her. We are looking forward to purchasing another Bellucci Guitar in a few years for Ziggy's younger brother Miles. Kind regards,

I've received guitar yesterday, she's the best that I played in my life. Sound is beautiful and strong, perfect separated of voices. I've played Bach's suite E-moll bwv 996, baroque music sounds very beautiful on my concert Bellucci guitar. Perfect work! I think, that my guitar is the best.
Thanks to you Renato, the guitar is perfect, I' m very happy!

my new baby is everything I hoped for and more. Just beautiful. The spruce is gorgeous and the Brazilian rosewood is breathtaking. What projection. She already has a warm tone but I can tell that she is just getting ready to open up big time (she's so new I'm sure she still thinks she more of a tree than a guitar but I intend to convince her to the contrary in short order). I just cranked out the cello prelude, prelude in Dm, Frog Galliard and Sunburst (York). Her intonation seems right on the money. She's extremely responsive already and capable of producing many different tone colors. The action is perfect. I couldn't be happier with her, brother. You and the builder delivered all you promised and more. I thank you sincerely for that.

I received my guitar yesterday Friday March 2nd. I have never played a guitar so well made. When I first looked at it and then put it in my hands I immediately knew and felt a quality in an instrument I have never known in my 58 years. It is so beautiful. I just enjoy looking at it. I have never played a guitar like this. I have played others worth thousands more but the quality of those guitars do not compare to yours. The guitar I have been playing for over 30 years has a thicker and more rounded neck. I much prefer the design of your neck. The neck and adjustment on your guitar is so much more responsive and the chord blends are so much more clear in their timbre. I can feel a greater sense of the chord especially in the upper part of the neck.
I just love the way it feels in my hands. I am so thrilled that I made this purchase and I have you to thank. I so appreciate your readiness to correspond which has been a blessing to me, You are a great man and an exceptional human being. In much appreciation.

I am so entranced by the beauty of this guitar both aesthetically and audibly. In just a matter of days the guitar unlocked new ways for me to express emotion with dynamics that I never dreamed of. Everyday I feel like a new sound comes alive in the guitar. Thank you so much for constructing the instrument that will bring so many new opportunities. Con muchas, muchas gracias,

The guitar arrived today (Feb 21, 2007) in perfect condition. The guitar is beautiful. I congratulate you on producing this wonderful instrument. If I could play as well as the guitar looks, I would be a virtuoso. Thank you very much.

I received the striped Macassar ebony/Spruce beauty !!
After unpacking, the first and only thing I did was looking at her.
I remember my first love and I can tell you that the same feelings were back again in my mind. I can see she was built with love and a lot of craftsmanship. The sound is beautiful . Thank you and your luthier for this outstanding work.
Your friend, Ron Berends

I received the fabulous maple cutaway, yesterday. The maple parts are literally marbling ! All of details are beautiful and elegant. The sound is crystalline, but also so mellow. I can hear different and various kinds of harmonic overtones at one time. The sound's character is so unique and ravishing. I'm also fully satisfied with the scale length of 640 mm, as my hands are not big enough for 650 mm. Thank you Renato and the luthier for an awe-inspiring instrument.
With warm regards,

With all of my heart, I have always been VERY good with words. I've written several novels countless poems (Some I allowed to be published) and I have never interviewed for a job that I didn't get because I always know what to say and the right time to say it, but when I opened the package with my Cedar Top inside today I went blank and all I had were very strong emotions that had no words to fit them. When I began this THANK YOU letter I knew that to describe the guitars beauty or it's sound or tone or it's workmanship or even how I felt all the way through my soul would only insult you and your guitars for there are no English words that express what should be said. Every word I know of does not rise high enough to do it justice. So in order not to belittle You or your masterpieces I will simply say before the entire world that I could not be more pleased and (this coming from a man who used to buy and sell antique guitars) I've never heard a better sounding guitar IN MY LIFE! You shipped it Monday, I got it Wednesday, the service and courtesy and sense of friendliness knew no bounds! To anyone else reading this: Don't hesitate any longer! Buy a guitar from this man and then guard it with your life! Search all you wish, it is a waste of time--buy a BELLUCCI first and save all that time, money and disappointment for this is the guitar you are looking for, I promise!!! I know of no way I could possibly ever thank you properly but I gladly say this: MAY GOD DEEPLY AND RICHLY BLESS YOU EVEN GREATLY BEYOND WHAT HE ALREADY HAS. A true friend for life.

The Gorgeous Guitar arrived today in perfect condition. I have seen a few concert quality instruments and had the privilege of owning one before receiving yours. This guitar is truly beautiful. It was obviously made with great love and attention to detail, which I deeply appreciate. The sound opened up quite a bit after being in the room for only 45 minutes and being played some. The trebles are bright and very clear. The bases are bold, but not overbearing. The balance between the two is ideal for me. If I were standing in Asuncion today, I would surely give you a big hug for making me such a lovely guitar.

What can I say? I know you have heard this many, many times before, but WOW! Just the looks of this guitar alone are simply breathtaking. The dark cedar top with he Australian rosette and dark binding is simply hard to believe. It is the most beautiful guitar I have ever seen in my life. The Bolivian Rosewood on the back amazes everyone who sees it.
About the sound? Sir, I was stunned from the very first chord I rolled! There is balance of gorgeous rich penetrating tone and power in every register. The guitar lacks nothing. I especially am appreciative of the low-profile neck. I do not have really large hands and, therefore, love the feel and shape of this neck. I can get around quickly without fatigue. I also love the laminated maple and ebony through the neck. Strong yet a work of art!
Renato, I cannot thank you enough. I don't think I have ever been this happy. I will play this one forever!

My guitar arrived late yesterday afternoon. Thank you very much! I pray that one day I'll be worthy of owning such a beautiful instrument!
Suzanne, Australia, Oct, 2006
The sustain is excellent and the feel of the fretboard is perfect. I want to play her all the time...the tuners are gorgeous.
Playing is so much easier with this instrument. The width of the fingerboard is perfect and feels so comfortable. The fourth string is top notch... outstanding sustain. The best I ever heard or played. Playing Bach BWV 996 will be easy now ! Thanks a lot !

The guitar arrived and it is fantastic. I really do like the sound and looks of the Cocobolo. The action is also great, you and the builder did another great job. Thank you.
