Please be aware that I have taken this down from the public side of my website. At this time in my life, I don’t wish to be associated with negativity, but I still wish to warn people of poor business practice. Renato is very guilty of such, on too many levels.
I am happy to send you a link to the entire post if you identify yourself to me (privately of course!). Don’t waste your time by just saying you want the link. You will be refused. Email me directly if you need more info and again, identify yourself personally to me : rich @ savageclassical.com
I give you the first paragraph below, as a constant warning.
I will state it for the record, this is not a pleasant post. I speak my mind clearly.
Some call it name calling. Renato is a liar. Why would I say anything different?
He’s a crook. Again, why would I say anything different?
It is clear he does not know how to build a guitar or what actually makes a “good” classical guitar. Again, why would I say anything different?
This is based on my own experience, with him and his awful work. Not hearsay. Personal and professional experience.
I am a known expert in this small world of classical guitar. I have restored, finished and repaired over 125 classical guitars of exquisite quality and provenance.
I do not count Renato Bellucci’s work in this count (they are not of any quality whatsoever). I have put thousands upon thousands of guitars in players’ hands.
This ability is predicated upon my knowledge, experience and the integrity of the man that I am and the highly regarded reputation of my gallery.
I know of what I speak. You’ve been told, you’ve been warned! Again and again, people do not heed my warnings. I am tired of it, of him, and his ridiculous work.
Read on, but again, the language is not pleasant. (I’ve actually cleaned it up). Forgive, but he has wasted much of my time, energy and he will waste yours as well.
