Larrivee Steel String Guitar Natural, 1974

Larrivee Steel String Guitar Natural, 1974

This Larrivee Steel String brings a bit of Canadian musical history, being an early steel model built during 1974 at Larrivee’s first formal shop, above the Tarragon Theatre near Bathurst and Dupont in Toronto. Jean Larrivee began building at his home around 1967. At that time, if you were interested in building guitars you read the very few books on the subject or met an established builder.

Guild D-25-CH Dreadnought Cherry, 1977

Built from 1968 to 1999, the Guild D-25 came in several colours, and from 1976, with a Sitka Spruce instead of Mahogany top. Intended as a lower cost yet quality instrument, it quickly gained acceptance in the Bluegrass community. Reflecting this, its name was changed around 1978 to the Bluegrass D-25.
