The Lute type sound hole is not merely an aesthetically element of guitar construction but also closely related with sound production and acoustics in general. The lute type sound hole forces the air inside the guitar to excite the surrounding woods longer than the conventional sound hole, thus generating an overall fuller and more powerful sound.
The Da Vinci Series is inspired by the great Tuscan Renascence man Leonardo Da Vinci. He was from the small town of "Vinci" and "Da Vinci" means "from Vinci". The Bellucci Da Vinci Series incorporates some genial add ons to the traditional guitar construction like special bracing in all its variations using a vast array of woods for the fan and Nomex for the Doubletop and a special Lute Type rosette which is the Signature feature and the sound ports strategically located for an involving sound.
The indented cutaway is both very beautiful and extremely useful. It requires the highest level of luthery to be made and when it comes to playability, it allows the player to access the F# on fret 14 with amazing ease thus covering the 14 most used frets in the classical guitar.
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.
Trurtle Shell decoration adds amazing beauty to an already stunning guitar. It enhances all her
lines and put an accent on specific parts of the construction. Turtle Shell decoration requires over 35 hours of highly skilled labor to be made and
it takes the guitar to unsuspected levels of beauty.
The armrest prevents the forearm to interfere with the vibration of the top thus adding a few extra decibels to the instrument. Plus it looks great !
The Soundport allows the modern guitar to project sound in all directions as well as providing the player a perfect monitoring of his playing. The traditional Spanish guitar did not produce as much sound as the contemporary instrument does. I recommend the Soundport to all my customers.
The Ultralight Travel Case 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.
Bellucci Guitars wear some of the best tuners available on the market. Schaller, Gotoh & Waverly. All models are Gold plated and are designed to last for a lifetime.
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 Bellucci Triple Neck Reinforcement (Maple-Rosewood-Maple) adds beauty and resilience to the neck allowing us to build it slim and when coupled to the Carbon Fiber Truss rod or the Adjustable Truss Rod, it ensures a beautiful and straight neck for several generations no matter what string tension or brand you use.
