Larrivee OM-60 SH Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar, 2005

Larrivee OM-60 SH Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar, 2005

This example of the Larrivee OM-60 SH dates to January 14, 2005 and was built at the Larrivee shop in Oxnard, California. It is in good shape, but it has been used as intended and over the years has required some repairs. There are two repaired and cleated cracks in the top. There is a bit of finish chipping and marking, mostly around the edges. Fret wear is moderate, and mostly in the lower positions. However, it plays very well and sounds great.

Larrivee SD-60 SH Slope Shoulder Traditional Dreadnought, 2006

Larrivee SD-60 SH Slope Shoulder Traditional Dreadnought, 2006

he Larrivee SD-60 is influenced by early Dreadnought designs, which date as far back as 1916. The earliest Dreadnought body guitars appeared around 1916 and were built by Martin for the Ditson company. The Martin-Ditson Dreadnought body style tends to be long with a wide waist. It has developed into the Dreadnought, the single most used body style in the world. The original Ditson dreadnoughts had many of the features found here on the Larrivee SD-60.

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!

Linda Manzer Cutaway Steel String Guitar Natural 1980

Linda Manzer Cutaway Steel String Guitar Natural 1980

Here we are looking at a Linda Manzer cutaway steel string acoustic built during 1980 in Toronto. It features a concert body using Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the bridge and bound fingerboard. The nut and saddle are bone. Schaller tuning machines with ebony buttons are installed at the head, and a K&K pickup set has been installed to an endpin jack. This example features Abalone for the rosette and position markers – a mix of dots and a leaflet with stem. The top has a small thin clear plastic tap plate, an excellent idea that protects the top without hiding it.
