Hear how powerful and full of the most amazing sound Asturias shines ever so wonderful. The presence of the bass is staggering as well as the singing qualities in Romance. Every possible element to make her a top guitar is present in her construction: The Deep, clear sounding African Bubinga, the Marvelous Italian Spruce top to give her power and punch and the Hauser/Bellucci bracing to give her a Spanish soul and a doses of mystery that words find impossible to describe. The amazing grain on Curly Waterfall Bubinga makes it one of the most sought after tropical tonewoods on the planet. When you hold her, you feel like you are embracing one glorious slice of nature. I could manage to get a hold of this amazing salvaged set in Late 2014 and it could not have received a better mission in life. I only built a handful of guitars using this amazing African species…. The grain resembles the curly Red Har in one of those "Disney Princess' Tales".... Simply AMAZING! I used the most delicate marquetry to take her to the highest levels of Luthery. Playing her is easy and I feel as though I have ALWAYS played her… I added onboard electronics to give her everything she needs to better serve the performing and recording artist because the onboard electronics allow for maximum output and no feedback whatsoever. Stunning. S.D.G.
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.
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 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 9-braces Bellucci/Hauser fan is the result of many years of experimenting. It
is based on Torres 4 fan brace design. The braces act as sound
vibrations highways. They carry the vibration of each string to a
specific spot on the soundboard. The variations on the 9 braces fan is
enormous. Luthier taylor each fan to achieve a specific sound and match
the instrument with the rest of the woods used in the construction. I
often use a mixture of Cedar, Spruce and Mahogany to match different
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 !
Some Sets for either the Back and Sides, for the Top or both can be quite stunning and rare when it comes to the figure and grain that they display. It is as if nature, knowing the final destiny of its creature, "prepared" the wood in such a way that its grain, hidden to the human eye and to the world, silently develops a breathtaking beauty that comes to life when the dead tree is sawn. Getting the same identical figure is practically speaking impossible but I strive at getting figured wood that resembles and transmits the same vital impression as the one here depicted
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.
