I wanted to let you know that I received my guitar today, safe and sound. It is truly a magnificent instrument. The workmanship is simply amazing.
The different woods used, the bindings and the rosette are unbelievable. I played if for my wife Karla, and she just loved the beauty of the sound that she heard.
The tones produced were so clean and clear. I couldn't be more pleased with this guitar. Even the case for the guitar is beautiful.
It is the absolutely the best birthday present that I have ever received.
Now that I've experienced for myself the high quality of instruments that you build and seeing what possibilities that you have to offer, I suspect that I will be ordering a custom instrument from you sometime in the future.

I received the Custom guitar & it is an absolute beauty, but much more important, it has a beautiful musical sound & tone. I absolutely love it. My hat off to you & your luthiers. This guitar is a work of art. It was well worth the wait.
Now, I can, therefore I say THANK YOU!!

I have just taken delivery ( last week) of my second Bellucci guitar. It was packed with care and delivered very efficiently thank you
It is even more beautiful than my first ( bought in 2010) and sounds brighter and is more responsive
I love them both. Keep up your excellent work

I received my new guitar recently, my "rose". Because of different climatic conditions between our two countries, I haven't been able to tune her up until this morning.
She is so beautiful! And she already sings with a most incredible voice, the voice of an angel. If I could imagine a guitar that would be worthy of serving as a tribute to my Maria, this would have to be it. Thank you so much for building such a wonderful instrument. I can feel my wife's loving presence every time I play it. The rose you had painted on the headstock for me is amazing! It looks different in every light and from every angle. Because of the textures created by the skillful hand of the artist (Liz), there is an effect that shows as tiny water droplets on the petals. I've never seen anything like this before, and I've seen many works of art. The grain displayed by the Tasmanian Blackwood is spectacular, and together with the color of the Alpine Spruce of the top and the Purple Heart wood binding and the matching rose, this guitar is truly a work of art. I know that she will draw the attention of many hearts when I begin to play her in church on Sundays. She is a feast for the ears, the eyes, and the soul. Renato my brother, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
Please feel free to use my words above on your website if you like. You deserve every compliment. Also, please forward this to Liz and give her a hug for me. Also, please thank anyone else who might have been involved in building this guitar for me.
Sincerely, Charles, Barrie ON, Canada, March 3, 2012
what beautiful guitars they are ! I saw they were beautiful, but they are more beautiful than I could see. The wood, the craft, the details... very embraceable.
Thanks. Really. It's special to be in touch with so nice an artistic and personal creation of yours, Be sure I can appreciate it.

My student, Alyssa Iulanetti, received her guitar last Sunday, and is very happy with it! I saw it on Friday, at her lesson; it is a beautiful instrument. Thank you for taking good care of her.
Her purchase may inspire some other students to purchase one in the future, as most are now playing student level instruments.

My guitar arrived this morning. I did not have a chance to unpack it and tune it up until this evening. It has a lovely, sweet sound and is very easy to play - very nice, low action. I do very much like the radiused fretboard and the 640mm scale. The cutaway is also a very nice feature.
I find that the treble has a warm, singing voice (I do like cedar soundboards!), and the is bass strong. It is a beautiful guitar and has a good home with me. Thank you for your support in helping me choose both the guitar and specific features (such as the violin tie end and armrest). You have been lovely and helpful.
I just got finished spending over an hour with my new Bellucci guitar. The strings are stretching out and the guitar is sounding wonderful! And it is so easy to play! Wonderful action and very responsive. If anything, the sound has grown "warmer" in just an hour! I think the guitar and I are a good match!
I did not comment in my previous email, but the case is very nice, and well padded -- a good fit.
Thank you, dear sir, for a wonderful guitar!

First, I wanted to say “Thank you” to you and your outstanding Luthiers. I am extremely happy, this guitar is incredible!
Before deciding to purchase from you I read through the testimonials, and it was easy to see a definite pattern in what people had to say about your guitars. As I zealously read through them, I could feel a thread of satisfaction that I can happily say I now share. Although it has been several weeks since I received my guitar, and though I’ve played it nearly every day, it still feels like the first time when it comes out of the case and I hold it in my hand. I always end up rubbing my palm across the curves of the sides before playing and it’s become a very satisfying ritual.
There is not much more to say that wouldn’t involve some form of repeating how great this guitar is and how happy I am with my purchase. But if you share my email and others are reading through testimonials as I once did, and are wondering about making such a large purchase online with an unknown company, or about the service and support or integrity of Bellucci guitars; I can say first hand that you will be happy with your decision to own a Bellucci.

I received her just now and I am very excited to meet her.
She is much more beautiful than her picture on the website. Great details. I have not ever seen something like this.
Words cannot describe her beauty. Wonderful!!! Is the only word that I can repeat when looking at her.
You are a real master. I don't know how I can THANK you.
I hope you will be healthy for a long time to make the guitarist happy all around the world.
Many, many, many big HUGS

I got the new Beauty on Tuesday. What a guitar!! Can't stop playing! Great sound, great details - the leds are very good when playing in the evening.

Guitar arrived today, more beautiful than the website showed! I have written a poem for you.Â Its rhythm is set to the popular "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" in honor of the season as well:
A guitar to produce most sonorous sounds
Must come from a place where rosewood abounds;
Where spruce, cedar, redwood are cut with great care
To top those guitars created with flare.
And it hardly ends there! There's ebony too.
And maple and walnut to mention a few.
Sent the world over, they're sturdily shipped,
Housed in cased leather, they're fully equipped.
When unwrapped their new owners will heartily swoon
At the music they offer once they're in tune.
I'd never have thought that when looking on line
I'd find guitar heaven and make some of them mine.
I couldn't have dreamed a more beautiful guitar than this latest addition to my collection. I now own four of your creations. I wish I could breed them to produce even more. But that would deprive me of the pleasure I derive of communicating with you each time I make a purchase.
And it has, indeed, been a pleasure once more in reaching you and receiving one more of your masterpieces, the very term you used to dub this particular guitar.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help in making choices into the purchase of my instrument. I will unfortunately not be home from Afghanistan until March of this year. I will be traveling to New York City to play in a special Classical Guitar Club called the Monkey where I will be playing your guitar.
I hope that you will continue to craft instruments so that in the future I can purchase another guitar from you. I will be in touch and I will look always at those instruments you are making in awe. You sir, are my hero and it overjoys me to know that there are people still in the world that are making beautiful things. Your guitar will have an honored place in my house and be an heirloom to my children. This sort of craftsmanship is failing in my country and it is seen less and less these days. Thank you.
With Great Admiration, Affection and Respectfully yours,
Joe Gladney, US Soldier serving in Afghanistan, February 1, 2012
I have received the guitar and she is great.
Bang, Australia, January 30, 2012
I have shown it to the people at my local guitar store (Guitar Center). They were very impressed. "Very nice" and "what an amazing amount of work" were the general comments.
Renato - Thank you very much, I am spreading the word about your lovely informative website. It might be nice to have a small brochure to pass around.

My daughter can not believe how beautiful the guitar is. It plays and sounds perfect. I can't believe how much sustain it has for a 615mm. It's also perfect for her hands. She said if you were here she would kiss you.
Thanks so much, and God bless you,
