Samuca Diniz and his Lineu Bravo guitar
Samuca purchased his Lineu Bravo guitar in 2011 and he got to know about the luthier through a Youtube video posted by his friend Rogerio Caetano: “I’ve researched about Lineu Bravo’s work and I found out that other talented musicians that I admired played instruments made by him, such as Marco Pereira.”
The musician tells a funny story that happened after he got his guitar: “I was in a music Festival playing with two musicians (Lucas Telles e Léo Eymard), and we joined three guitars made by the same luthier. The sonority was incredibly velvety.”
Samuca Diniz left a testimonial about his Lineu Bravo guitar
The first thing you notice when you see someone playing a Lineu Bravo guitar is the beauty of the instrument: the colors and the workmanship. Even after many years playing it, when I open the guitar case, I can still feel the wood aroma.
The thing I love most about the Lineu Bravo guitar is the velvety timbre, with perfect musical notes. It is excellent to play solo or in group. Sometimes people ask me about my guitar, whether I use plugins, etc. When it happens I just answer: It is just my guitar timbre.
I own a Youtube channel and I usually record a lot of videos, so I see that it is too easy to do the sound capture with the Lineu Bravo guitar. Apart from that, I can tell the difference between this guitar and the others. The Lineu Bravo guitar sound is clear, accurate. It is like recording the sound of a beautiful voice.”
