The Larrivee LV-03 Vancouver Edition is a beautiful guitar which also represents part of Canadian guitar building history! One of the last 10 guitars made in the Vancouver Larrivee factory this well balanced sounding guitar features premium wood sets, bubinga binding and custom maple leaf inlay!
Jean Larrivee began building guitars in 1968 as a one-man workshop in Toronto. Over the years his commitment to producing the finest instruments has remained constant. Whether flying to Europe to personally select the next shipment of rosewood, walking a log boom off the coast of British Columbia looking for the perfect spruce log, or applying his woodworking skills on the production floor, Jean Larrivee has always gone the extra mile to ensure his guitars are the very best. The entire Larrivee family, including Wendy, Matthew and John Jr. are heavily involved in a very “hands on” daily basis in the production of these high quality professional grade acoustic instruments.
Back in the early seventies a young Jean-Claude created the L body shape which has become a staple of the Larrivee guitar line. This body shape is similar to a classical body shape and features a Symmetrical Parabolic X-Bracing pattern. This helps to provide an exceptionally well balanced instrument with great sustain and dynamics. Over the last forty years this model has been embraced by professional and serious amateur musicians around the world as possibly the most versatile flattop steel string guitar design in our business!
