The D-40/OM-40 “Legacy” is a revolutionary new guitar from Larrivee. This new model born from years of research and testing features Jean Larrivee’s first new bracing pattern in over 46 years. The new “Scalloped Parabolic Hybrid” bracing system perfectly merges the strength, tonal balance, and clarity of Larrivee bracing, with the Bass response, depth, and volume you’d expect from a vintage dreadnaught.

The foundation for this new bracing system is our tried and true shaped “X” brace. Each of these “X” braces is hand shaped and voiced for the individual instrument and provides maximum strength between the bridge and sound hole. The real secret to the system however is the new Non-Symmetrical Scalloped Lateral Cross Braces. These braces move away from traditional “block” shaped braces into lightweight “tapered” braces with a traditional scallop (think suspension bridge).

They are engineered to provide maximum strength using the least possible material and with the smallest footprint possible allowing free vibration of the soundboard. In a standard Larrivee the lateral cross braces are perfectly symmetrical across the “X” brace connecting on the treble and bass side, but in the Scalloped Parabolic Hybrid system they connect only on the treble side and travel away at a carefully calculated angle. This change allows us to control the bass response of the instrument.
