Hi Renato

Hi Renato

I got the new Beauty on Tuesday. What a guitar!! Can't stop playing! Great sound, great details - the leds are very good when playing in the evening.

Cheers from freezing Finland! Kimi, February 3, 2012, Finland

Dear Renato

Dear Renato

Guitar arrived today, more beautiful than the website showed!  I have written a poem for you.  Its rhythm is set to the popular "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" in honor of the season as well:

A guitar to produce most sonorous sounds
Must come from a place where rosewood abounds;
Where spruce, cedar, redwood are cut with great care
To top those guitars created with flare.
And it hardly ends there!  There's ebony too.
And maple and walnut to mention a few.
Sent the world over, they're sturdily shipped,
Housed in cased leather, they're fully equipped.
When unwrapped their new owners will heartily swoon
At the music they offer once they're in tune.
I'd never have thought that when looking on line
I'd find guitar heaven and make some of them mine.

I couldn't have dreamed a more beautiful guitar than this latest addition to my collection.  I now own four of your creations.  I wish I could breed them to produce even more.  But that would deprive me of the pleasure I derive of communicating with you each time I make a purchase.
And it has, indeed, been a pleasure once more in reaching you and receiving one more of your masterpieces, the very term you used to dub this particular guitar.
Most sincerely,

Zoom Dear Renato

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help in making choices into the purchase of my instrument.  I will unfortunately not be home from Afghanistan until March of this year. I will be traveling to New York City to play in a special Classical Guitar Club called the Monkey where I will be playing your guitar.
I hope that you will continue to craft instruments so that in the future I can purchase another guitar from you. I will be in touch and I will look always at those instruments you are making in awe. You sir, are my hero and it overjoys me to know that there are people still in the world that are making beautiful things. Your guitar will have an honored place in my house and be an heirloom to my children.  This sort of craftsmanship is failing in my country and it is seen less and less these days. Thank you.

With Great Admiration, Affection and Respectfully yours,

Zoom Maestro

Thanks much for the beautiful member of your guitar family

Thanks much for the beautiful member of your guitar family

I have shown it to the people at my local guitar store (Guitar Center). They were very impressed.  "Very nice" and "what an amazing amount of work" were the general comments.
Renato - Thank you very much, I am spreading the  word about your lovely informative website.  It might be nice to have a small brochure to pass around.

Hi Renato

Hi Renato

My daughter can not believe how beautiful the guitar is. It plays and sounds perfect. I can't believe how much sustain it has for a 615mm. It's also perfect for her hands. She said if you were here she would kiss you.
Thanks so much, and God bless you,

Hello Renato

Hello Renato

I received my guitar today.  I can't believe how quickly it got here.
What a Christmas present !   I was so excited to get it.
It is absolutely beautiful . And she sounds wonderful.   I love the depth and volume of the lower strings, yet the upper strings have a brighness as well.

Thank you so much!

Have a Happy Holiday Season !

Dear Renato

I received my guitar two days ago. WOW! She is beautiful and the sound is incredible. It is amazing that when she is in tune the wood vibrates with the resonance of the strings. Thank you for your everlasting impeccable taste in wood and attention to detail. It is truly a masterpiece.
Thank you, always love and peace.

Dear Renato

Dear Renato

I have received the guitar. She looks great, especially the spruce top, its grain is extremely tight. The 16’’ radius finger board is much easier to play even though I have no problems with flat finger board… But it should not go beyond 16’’ unless the guitar is cutaway. Her sound is great, determined and expressive. I tried Brazilian Portrait (Powell) – her sound was sweet, then Serenata Espanola (Malats) - her sound was romantic, then part of Fugue BWV 1000 (Bach) and her sound was really determined.
I love this guitar!
More importantly, on top of all the guitars, my dear Renato, I am not sure whether I will have a chance to see you in the future or not, but in my heart, you’re always my good friend from far far away.

Warmest regards,

Bang Trang, Victoria, Australia, December 1, 2011

Dear Renato

Dear Renato

The sextuple top Ziricote custom guitar you built to my specifications is now the "star" of my collection.  I have always wanted a guitar built from this very rare wood and the inlay work and custom marquetry your shop put on this guitar is just breathtaking.  The extra time I had to wait for it due to its complexity was well worth it.  I am sure that the price I paid was only a fraction of what the so called "major makers" would charge for such a beauty -- if one could even talk them into building such a custom, one-off guitar!

Many thanks to you and your team of artisan builders for my Ziricote beauty.

The Bellucci guitar I bought from your website

The Bellucci guitar I bought from your website

this last January is my fifth classical guitar. I have been studying guitar at the Eastman Community Music School (a division of the Eastman School of Music) for over ten years, and have attended the National Guitar Workshop Classical Summit most of those years. I have had considerable contact with professionals and have become acquainted with a number of guitar builders, and with a number of very fine guitars. I also have built a lute and a number of folk instruments (no guitars).

The Bellucci guitar is the finest one I have ever owned, and equal to or better than any other guitar I have played. It has been admired by everyone who has seen and heard it this past year, including advanced players and professionals. The construction is superb, the tone rich and powerful, and it is easy to play (640mm string length). The intonation is as perfect at possible throughout the fretboard, in contrast to my other guitars, including a Casimiro Lozano.

Dealing with you Renato is a pleasure, the guitar came right away extremely well packaged, and was exactly as described.

The guitar came brand new without any breaking in, a new experience for me. After 10 months the tone is still improving. I started noticing a big improvement after ten days (just as he promised in the instructions that came with the guitar).  For those of you that have not broken in a new guitar before you should summon your patience, it is well worth while. There are ways to speed up the process: I placed the guitar in front of my studio speakers and played CD quality recordings of cello and violin music.  The sustain of the bowed instruments keeps the wood, glue, and finish vibrating, which speeds the adaptation process.

If I ever want another guitar I will order a custom made one from you Renato

I can confirm that his business is legitimate. I should also mention that the United States Custom Service did not charge duty on the guitar. Renato responds quickly to email queries and I am sure that he will answer any questions you have.

With best wishes,

Donald Sade, NY USA, November 7 2011

Hi Renato

Hi Renato

I recently let a professional blues guitarist play the beautiful guitar you made for me and he said it was the finest guitar he had ever played!
Indeed, it is a beauty in all respects:  visually, and the quality of sound is superb.
If I had any money, I would buy another guitar from you just because...not because I need one, but just because they are beautiful and I think you do a great job.
Hope all is well.
