John Larrivee Classical Guitar, 1969

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.

Sold! Larrivee LV-03R Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 2012

Sold!  Larrivee LV-03R Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 2012

The Larrivee LV-03R Steel String Acoustic Guitar is part of the Recording series, and uses the traditional Larrivee L body, drawn from the proportions of the Hauser style classical guitar. This gives it a very reliable, even tonal representation throughout the spectrum and plenty of volume when requested. The cutaway definitely adds to the upper fret accessibility. This example dates to October 29, 2012 and was built at the old Larrivee plant in Victoria, BC. It features a Sitka Spruce top, with Indian Rosewood used for the sides, back, headplate and bridge plate, and the body is bound with maple.
