Dear Renato, I got excellent feedback about BabyTonga.
I took her to my Jazz Teacher, and also to the head of UCI Guitar school, he is also the head of the guitar program at Irvine Valley College.
They were in awe about my Babe, the armrest, the violin tie, the inlays, the double top, and the sound, and this with the old strings…I will post a review this weekend.
Be well my friend! She's a Beauty. Thank you !

la magnifica chitarra in Ziricote - top in alpine spruce, è arrivata.
L'ho suonata, incredibile la pienezza e la durata del suono, l'agevolezza della mano sinistra. Devo ammettere che mi ha colpito, è proprio un gioiello. Cerco di immaginarmi cosa sarà fra 6 mesi.Anche se è secondario, è molto bella, l'abinamento ziricote e pino è veramente indovinato. Ottime le rifiniture.
Ti scriverò più avanti per presentarmi meglio, intanto ti ringrazio

the magnificent Ziricote guitar with the Alpine Spruce top has arrived. I played her. The fullness of sound is unbelievable and so is sustain. Easy on the left hand. I am really struck, she's a jewel. I cannot imagine what she will sound like in 6 mmonths ! The Ziricote /Spruce combination is striking and teh setailing is right on teh spot ! Perefct finish.
I'll write again in teh future. Thanks

I'm staring at my beautiful Zorro right now. In the low light of my living room, the pieces of pearl in my rosette shine like little jewels, and the birds are casting tiny glimmers of color. I fell asleep on the couch last night just staring at her! Everyone that I've shown her to is blown away! She has a very sweet tone and the harmonics simply sing. The intonation is perfect; the tone is even all across the fretboard, and she is very easy to play. This is an amazing guitar in every way! The name Calypso came to me when I first saw her on your website; I like it.

Not only is my Tiger BEAUTIFUL, she plays like a dream! She actually resonates INTO me when I play! WOW!! And she rings! The sustain is incredible. She inspires me to be the very best I can be and I look forward to my next Bellucci creation. I’m ecstatic about owning and playing this instrument!!
I thought you’d enjoy seeing the unveiling, so we shot a little video of the process. Barbara is behind the camera and you’ll hear her get caught up in the beauty of the Tiger.
If I had the money, I would have you make me a Flamenco, a 6 string acoustic and the 12 string acoustic. Your guitars are magnificent!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE MUSIC IN YOU!!!
Your (devoted!!) fan,

Arrived home from Canada today and couldn't unpack my suitcases or anything until I had a chance to sit down tune it up and play it. The sound is wonderful and I know it's just going to get better as time passes. I had both addresses covered for it's arrival. MY friend unpacked it for me and thought I should just put it a glass case and never touch it again. Well that is not going to happen. I got invited to accompany a children's Christmas Program in Montana this year and this Beauty is going along. Thank you much for this work of art. God Bless

Zorro arrived today in all his glory. It is a beautiful guitar and arrived in perfect condition. I could not resist tuning her up giving her a brief spin. She has a very balance voice with great sustain. She is now resting in her case in a climate controlled room. I look forward to spending a lot of time with her.

Received my lovely "GLO"...My it is exquisite and the case is a masterful piece of work!! The packing was unbelievably well done and nothing was damaged at all!!! I tuned it and am playing it and the sound is out of this world. The keyboard is so easy on the fingers that I am thrilled and it is almost the only guitar that I play now although I do have 5!!!!

I really love my Bellucci guitar. It is absolutely beautiful, the art work and the sound. And it has really opened up a lot in the pas few weeks. Also it is a lot easier to play to that is very helpful also. Would never change it for a different one.

The Anaconda II has arrived and is even more beautiful than the pictures on the web site. My only wish is to be able to play her as well as she looks one day. It is 39 degrees C and 75% humidity as I write. Fortunately it is cooler at my lodgings where the Anaconda II is getting its first breath of New England.
Thanks to you and your fine luthiers at Mangore, ciao.

I had to let you know that I received my new " Tiger " yesterday, much sooner than I anticipated. DHL did a wonderful job and I was able to track the progress with the tracking number, which added to the anticipation. The protective packaging was amazing, there's no way you could damage the goods unless it fell out of the plane.
When I opened the box I was stunned by the beauty of the case, definitely a work of art. The guitar is truly breathtaking! I haven't had much time to play yet, but neck size definitely makes a difference in my ability to reach some difficult chords that have frustrated me in the past.The tone is as beautiful as the guitar is. I'm in love with this guitar. You and your group of artisans are amazing. I'm already considering having you build a steel string for me in the future ( I can't let my wife see this)
Thanks for your dedication.

I have just received the most beautiful instrument I have ever seen.
I have no words other than these...
She whispered of ancient streets
speckled with gold
A gift from the setting sun
She smelled of soft moonlit wind
Chased along thick swaying branches
by startled green leaves
She remembered long clear summer days
and laughed strong and true
like ambered honey
She flung her skirt and danced
Exploding with sensual rhythms
Her radiant skin sparkling under the stars
quietly, happily, surrendering
to a life more profound
