Larrivee J-25 12 String Jumbo Natural, 1990


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Larrivee J-25 follows the successful Jumbo 12-string design, used to great success by Guild and based on the Gibson super jumbo body originating in the late 1930s.

This example of Larrivee J-25 production dates to January 29, 1990 and was built in Victoria, British Columbia. The model number identifies it as a J body – Jumbo – in 25 trim, with Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. As with other Larrivee models, the neck and body blocks are Mahogany and the fingerboard and bridge are Ebony. This guitar has Indian Rosewood body binding. The headstock features a lovely Heron inlay done in Abalone and Mother of Pearl. The rosette is a traditional mosaic pattern and a small thin clear pickguard has been installed. A single-element passive pickup is installed to the Rosewood bridge plate, and leads to an end-pin jack.

As a Jumbo 12, it sounds both great and large. It’s very responsive and covers a lot of the audible frequency spectrum, maintaining crisp and clear trebles and good articulation on bass notes.

This guitar is over 30 years old and is in overall good condition. Long ago the top cracked, and this has been professionally glued and cleated. Fret wear is minor, and wear otherwise is minor.

The original Larrivee hard shell case is included.
