The Mother of Pearl and Abalone inlay work adds amazing beauty to an
already stunning guitar. It takes innumerable hours and very specialized
hands and tools to create each inlay work. The average number of hours
invested is approximately 150 hours.
Bellucci guitars are decorated using marvelous wood marquetry to enhance all her lines and put an accent on specific parts of the construction. The marquetry requires anywhere between 35 & 90 hours of highly skilled labor to be inlayed throughout the guitar. It is made entirely by hand using knives that each luthier typically manufactures himself. It takes the guitar to unsuspected levels of beauty. The marquetry also constitutes an often critical point of release of tension which is caused by the constant expanding and contracting of the woods used in guitar construction. These are due to such factors such as humidity and ambience temperature.
The price includes Hauser fan bracing of the top. You can select the
construction of the top to be Lattice, double top, Nomex, or a
combination of these construction types at checkout. Hauser is typically associated with the "Spanish Sound". Lattice will deliver a sound with a predominance of the Mid-high Ranges. The double top will minimize wolf notes and augment sustain. The double top can be added to both the Hauser and the Lattice.
The shallower body allows the player to feel more comfortable with the instrument. Although it is only 11mm shallower, the amount is enough to make the guitar a lot easier to hold and players who like to handle lighter instruments will find the shallower body to be a true blessing.
Carbon Fiber is stronger than an equivalent volume of steel. The Carbon fiber truss rod prevents neck twisting and/or bending due to the excessive tension that many modern brands of strings bring about. It adds practically no weight to the construction and will keep your neck straight for ages.
The Papua Abalone Rosette is simply fabulous and adds a touch of beauty to the most looked at part of the instrument.
The Ultralight Travel Case Ideal for Shipping (Included) is a very sturdy and extremely light case that protects the guitar very well while allowing the player to carry the instrument without adding more weight than strictly necessary. It is covered in black plush inside and has 2 pockets on the outside and an accessories compartment on the inside. 2 Straps to carry it on the back as a backpack or over the shoulder.
