The guitarist and composer Lucas Telles purchased in 2013 the first 7-steel string guitar Rogério Caetano model with pine top made by the luthier Lineu Bravo. Before that, in 2010, the luthier built him a 7-nylon string guitar.

Lucas describes how he got familiar with Lineu Bravo’s work: “I know his guitars since when he lived in Ouro Preto, when some friends from Minas Gerais purchased his instruments. I met him in person in 2008, in Belo Horizonte, when Lineu came to deliver a guitar to a friend of mine. On that occasion, I was very interested in his guitars but I couldn´t afford them yet. Then, in 2009, I met him in a music festival, in Ourinhos, and played the guitar he had brought to Maurício Carrilho. So, I decided to order my first Lineu Bravo guitar. The second one, a 7-steel string guitar, I ordered after I saw it in Rogério Caetano’s house.”

Henry Burnett and the Lineu Bravo guitar

Henry Burnett has recently purchased a guitar made by the luthier Lineu Bravo. The instrument is a 6-string nylon guitar with a Canadian cedar top, Indian Jacaranda Back and ebony elevated fingerboard.

Henry describes how he learned about Lineu: “I decided to choose Lineu after many years of research. I wanted to try a guitar made by a luthier, so I started reading the book “Violões do Brasil”, written by Myriam Taubkin. At the end of the book there is a very long list with luthier’s names. So, I started to look for sound references and guitarrists’ ratings. Then I saw a video of Guinga playing Lineu’s guitar. After that, I heard the story about Chico Buarque and his guitar, Arthur Nestrovski, Marco Pereira, and so many others. The more I heard, the more I knew that Lineu’s guitar had the most suitable sound for my work because it was classic and extremely Brazilian”.
