Erik J Heinrich

Hello my name is Erik J Heinrich and I am the proud new owner of 'Gloria', a Bellucci Crown Custom Limited Edition S.D.G. Signature Series Concert Classical Guitar.can honestly say that she is one of the finest Bellucci Guitars ever built by the Bellucci team of Luthiers. 

I can attest to this very fact because Gloria is absolutely beautiful and she sounds even more beautiful than she appears to be and she's most comfortable to play as well. The workmanship that went into building this guitar is absolutely astounding and 'Gloria' is impeccable to say the least. I am very grateful for Bellucci Guitars Master Luthier Domingo and his team of Luthiers who put their best efforts forward along with their commitment and dedication, their relentless energy and their loving care that brought 'Gloria' into existence. 
As I was deeply involved in the process of dreaming up an original theme for 'Gloria' We spent a considerable amount of time in preperation to create what we believed would be the perfect combination of inovative custom features in order to produce a truly superior High Performance Concert Classical Guitar. It was all well worth it because every single detail was accomplished according to my expectations. For this I am very grateful and I consider it to be an honor to own such a magnificent Bellucci Guitar. She's everything I had hoped for in a Custom Built Guitar made specifically for my liking and personality. You could spend 10 thousand or even 20 thousand on a Concert Classical Guitar without getting half the custom features that Bellucci Guitars have to offer for the same amount or less. I have searched far and wide  to no avail and at first I could not find a Luthier who could deliver what I wanted in my Dream Guitar. I have done extensive research and study to find a Luthier who could offer a wide variety of Tone-woods and Superior Top woods along with innovative custom features such as an elevated fingerboard, Contreras Style Double Top with Traditional Lattice Bracing, Venetian  cutaway and personalized custom inlays, even Diamonds set in 18k gold settings and installed as Position markers along the top edge of the fingerboard, to no avail until I found Bellucci Guitars, one of the only Guitar Builders in existence who can offer the widest selection of these custom options at any price. You can't go wrong with a Bellucci Custom built Concert Classical Guitar and they build Steel String Acoustic guitars as well that are equally Magnificent! If you want to purchase a superior Guitar at any price you can't afford to pass up a Bellucci Masterpiece Guitar built by some of the best Luthiers in the entire World! By the way Bellucci Customer Service is among the Finest there is. I received 'Gloria' here in New York City, New York from Asuncion, Paraquay in just 9 days after being Postmarked at Asuncion, Paraguay. Thanks again Renato Bellucci, Domingo the Master Luthier & the entire staff at Bellucci Guitars

My dearest Renato,
On Sunday a package arrived here that looked like it could have traveled to China and back and still arrived safely. The reason for my first thank you -- the care you took in wrapping Renata.
After I opened the package, there she lay, more beautiful than ever. Please thank Domingo and the other luthiers for their skill and then yourself, for the care, devotion, and expense you put into building her. A few months ago you wrote "we will make this come out better than before" and you are certainly a man of you word. She is perfect.
Just waiting to be held and loved. The reason for my second thank you.

I tuned her and then let her rest and get acclimated to our humidity and today I will let my fingers accustom themselves to her specifications, which will be a loving task, but one I will approach with humility. I can see that she has a sweet side, but there is a boldness about her. I will have to over come my timidity to approach her courageously. This is the reason for my third thank you.

You see in taking on Renata I will have to grow and learn. Move out of my comfort zone. I have already learned a lot from you. You are a great man and l call our acquaintance one of the great treasures of my life. I have nothing to offer you but my prayers and you can count on a daily rosary forever for your family, your concert tour, your business, your health...

Please ask Belén to give you two huge hugs, one from Renata and then one from me.

Hello Renato, 
Regarding Aphelia the beautiful Bubinga:
She is so beautiful and so well made -that alone would be reason for praise.
After playing her every day now for a month, I feel that Aphelia is a beautiful work of craftsmanship, art and performance.
I have come to understand that she has great character. From the very first, I could hear magnificent resonant lows; and her trebels were clear like the most beautiful of bells, but over time I have learned more. When alternating between playing her and my other guitars during one session, I have become very aware that she is different -and that she is very much superior.
Her sustain is spectacular and lasting, yet ghost notes are not an issue and that is not something I can say about my other guitars. Renato, your double-top construction technique is awesome.
Typical of a truly great instrument, her sounds are very much her own: spectacular and true, and yet uniquely hers -simply put, it makes me smile every time I have played her. When I set her down to play other guitars, I miss her.
I am very glad that I decided to order this guitar from you; it was a month in ship time to Boise but now I know it was well worth the wait. I also know what a really well-made, hand-made guitar can be; and no guitar I have ever held even comes close to being as good as Aphelia.
Renato, thank you again. You are an honest and amazing Maestro, and your guitar is far better than any I have ever touched.
The work of your hands is amazing and it is good that you dedicate this work to the Glory of the God.
Best regards, Bruce Hedge, Boise, Idaho   
Renato, you may edit and use any part or parts of my email as a reference or testimonial.

Maestro:  Llegó "Campana" y estoy sumamente complacido.  Ha sido Ud. paciente y sumamente desprendido.  La primera impresión es que la guitarra es espectacular.  Sobre todo me gusta el sonido.  La maquinaria comparada con la otra guitarra es como montarse en un Mercedes después de estar en un Chevy.   Mucho mas fácil de tocar que la otra guitarra, la forma del brazo, el diapason, en fin estoy encantado de la vida.  Lo otro es que le había cambiado el estuche y la mando Ud. en el de cuero repujado, y me he quedado de una pieza, es una obra de arte.  Estoy de prisa, pero solamente quería decirle que llego La Campana, sana y salva.  Después me comunico con mas calma.  Como decía Don Pedro Vargas:  "Muy agradecido, muy agradecido, muy agradecido".  

Un abrazo,  Jose 


PD.  Informele a Roberto que estoy mas que agradecido y admirado de la calidad de su trabajo.

The mail lady delivered the case & she wanted to stand & talk, normally I do too, but not today ! I wanted her to leave so I could open the case.... lol I very carefully peeled back each layer & I finally got to see a master piece. It is amazing. Thank you, thank you. I will do my best to keep it a secret until Christmas. Now my only problem is when are you flying here to re-wrap it?? Ha Ha  I'll probably keep it hidden until he has opened all presents & just throw a huge blanket over it & have my husband carry it out. I am so glad I randomly found you on the internet. You have made my day & will make my son's Christmas!

Dear Renato,

    I hope you and yours are healthy and happy. Have been in Colorado for a month now.  Can't imagine what it would have been without my newest Bellucci addition.  It sounds as beautiful as it looks.  After playing it the other night I said to my wife that our entire apartment seemed filled with guitar music, and she agreed.  I miss all my other Bellucci's, but I'll have to wait until October to hold and play each one.  When we get home we will take a good photo of those wonderful guitars for your web site.

Estimado Renato, 

Cada día que pasa estoy más contento con 
mi nueva guitarra Bellucci. No puedo decidir cual 
suena mejor si la Bellucci del 2005 o la nueva, 
suenan distinto. La nueva no sólo suena
lindo y se ve muy bonita, también es más 
fácil de tocar. Es mi preferida

Solo quería que lo supieras,

Gracias y saludos

Leonel Ocon, 
P.S. Estoy intentando tocar Capricho Árabe, 
empezó esta semana, para mi es un gran

Buen dia, Renato:

Two days ago the guitar arrived here in 

the Spring Valley Community where my wife 

and I moved on March 30.  

The guitar arrived here safely. It looks 

beautiful as does the case. I have been 

playing the guitar for the last two days, 

giving my hands a chance to get used to 

the guitar again. My wife Holly says it is 

much louder and clearer than the other 

guitar I had and so with a little practice 

I should make it sing.  Thanks for going 

out of your way to make this purchase possible. 

Well, all the best to you and your family.

Hi Renato:

Of course it goes without saying that the guitar was delivered today. It is beautiful and worth far more than what I paid for it.  The sound is beautiful, but I have not had an opportunity to do it justice, yet.   My very grateful thanks for the more than expected work which you have done.  I am overwhelmed.

All the Best.

     Although the guitar did not arrive in your usual crate, the packaging was excellent.  A thin layer of wood on front and back of the case was surround by thick foam, with packaging paper and plastic to top it off - very secure.  I'd say that this guitar is the most beautiful I own, except I can't because I own six other Bellucci's.  Two are cocobolo, two are Brazilian rosewood, one is Hawaiian koa, and one is tamarind.  It is impossible to say which is most aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  It's a matter of individual taste.  This is the first guitar I have ever owned which has inlay on the fretboard.  It is stunning, but I'll need to adapt to it while playing.  

     In my eagerness, I tuned and played her already.  I love its sound.  We have artwork on all of our walls, much of it done by my wife, who is a fine water-colorist.  But we have other types of art as well. Some of our furniture is also artistically created.  
I wish I lived in a climate which allowed me to display my guitars you designed.  They are each artistically created, and I play each with equal time and love.  They motivate me to become a better guitar player.  I do not refer to myself as "guitarist" because I am an amateur who plays for his own enjoyment.  But part of every day of my life is spent playing music on the instruments I have obtained from you.  They each bring me great joy.  If I could only look at them and were unable to play, I would experience joy.  My classical guitar teacher (a true guitarist) is coming for a visit in about six weeks.  I can't wait to show him my Belluccis.  He will make them sound as good as they look.  Thank you for another masterpiece.

Dear Renato,

The 7-Strings guitar has arrived on Saturday! It was a great surprise to get her already and it made my weekend. She is absolutely beautiful and I am looking forward to getting to know her, getting used to playing seven strings..

 I will send a picture and a recording soon. Thank you very much for this outstanding masterpiece: true guitar artwork.

The Tiger I have now been playing for about half a year and it has developed impressively in these months. Everybody loves the warm and rich sound and clear treble. I planned time for recordings during the Christmas break and am looking forward to it.

With my best regards,

Dear Renato,

 You were right - neither photos nor words do her justice.  I won't even try.  I played her this AM, and loved her sound. She will occupy a place in my home and in my heart with the five other Bellucci guitars I own.

 If I continue to visit your web site, I may ultimately run out of room in my house.  I will continue to sing your praises. Thank you.

Dear Renato,

Dear Renato my friend-
Oh my goodness. She is so beautiful I can't even believe it! You're such an amazing artist and craftsman, God has truly given you a wonderful gift. I just want you to rest assured I will take such good care of her, and I know I will enjoy playing her for the rest of my life. The wood is so gorgeous, and all the special "pretty things" you added to her, the rosette, the purfling, or trim around the edges, the tuners, everything!! Wow. My mind is completely blown. Oh yes, and also, the case. That is the most amazing case I have ever seen, truly worthy of the guitar inside.  Really, I'm at a loss for words. It's everything you said she was and more!! In the future I will be back to buy more cases, I have many guitars God has blessed me with. Also, as we said before, sometime I will have you build me a custom guitar with inlay all over the place and other things, but first I must save my money. In the meantime, I will be playing this dream guitar I was so lucky to find on your website. I can't thank you enough for everything. I am truly blessed to have met you. Thank you dear Renato. I wish I could come to Paraguay and shake your hand and give you a big hug.
Your friend always-
