⚌Reduced‼ Larrivee LV-03 Mahogany Satin, 2008

The Larrivee LV-03 Mahogany 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.
