John Larrivee Classical Guitar, 1969

Here’s a historical piece – a Larrivee classical guitar, built during 1969 in Toronto when John Larrivee was studying with Edgar Monch. This is one of Larrivee’s very first guitars, as evidenced by the label. The very first labels were hand typeset, and had two spelling errors, in the first and last names!
