Larrivee OM 09 Steel String Guitar, 1999

Larrivee OM 09 Steel String Guitar, 1999

The Larrivee OM 09 is based on the classic ‘Orchestra Model’ design dating to 1929, and is itself based on the 000 body size but with the upper bouts adapted to accommodate a 14-fret neck. At first, this model was named after Perry Bechtel, the prominent banjo player who custom ordered it; however, Martin soon realized that ‘Orchestra Model’ had better appeal to migrating banjo players, and never used the Bechtel name in catalogs.

Larrivee LV19 Special Vine Edition, 2002

The Larrivee LV19 Special Vine Edition was built only during 2002, in a run of fifty instruments featuring a spectacular engraved ‘tree of life’ vine inlay. Here we’re looking at a Larrivee LV19 Special Vine Edition, dating to September 10, 2002 and built at the then-new Larrivee shop in Oxnard, California. The LV-19 is now a discontinued model, but the “LV” indicated the classically-derived Larrivee body while the “19” denotes a step up from the “09” trim, adding Rosewood binding.

Larrivee SD60 SH Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, 2003

Larrivee SD60 SH Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, 2003

The Larrivee SD60 SH is a take on possibly the earliest Dreadnought sized guitar designs – those built from 1916 by C F Martin for the Ditson company. At the time, guitars tended to be small, with the Parlor size being most common. The Dreadnought was an unusual size for a guitar, but sales were poor, the model was discontinued, and the model disappeared until Martin launched its D size models in 1931.
