Jean Larrivee Classical Guitar, 1974

Jean Larrivee Classical Guitar, 1974

Here we have a Jean Larrivee classical guitar with Cedar top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, built during 1975 at the Toronto shop. At this time, Larrivee and others were working with the late Edgar Monch, who was still in Toronto and the influences are visible on this Hauser style guitar. Jean Larrivee has been one of the more influential Canadian guitar builders. Building his first instruments in his home in Toronto during the late 1960’s, Larrivee worked with and learned from Monch. As his interest, skill and collection of tools and wood increased, he moved to ever-larger quarters and attracted his own trainees.
