❌SOLD❌ Larrivee L-09 Lacewood Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 2006


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Larrivee L-09 uses a body design based on something Jean Larrivee knows very well – the proportions of the Hauser-style classical guitar. Larrivee’s LS body makes a more direct comparison, while the L body is larger; both take the proportions and adapt their structures for steel string guitars. This provides an excellent representation of the harmonic range, and plenty of volume and projection.

Here we have a special guitar, dated to November 20 2006 and built at the Larrivee shop in Oxnard, California. This Larrivee L-09 Lacewood uses Lacewood for the back and sides. This wood hints at the brightness, separation and clarity of maple but with a softer, warm attack and finish but is not as lush as rosewoods. The top, as with many Larrivee guitars, is Sitka Spruce, the neck Mahogany
with bound Ebony fingerboard, ebony for the bridge and Indian Rosewood for the headplate. The head features the Larrivee logo and a vine inlay in Abalone or Paua, within the traditional partial boundary designed for Larrivee by Tony Duggan-Smith.

This example is in very good condition with just light wear; the main indication of its age is the light, fully natural finish sinking into the wood pores. That is also an indication of a finish that is light enough to not substantially restrict vibration.

The original Larrivee hardshell case is included.
