Larrivee L03R Recording Series Rosewood


Instrument Categories: ,

Part of the Larrivee Recording series, the Larrivee L03R is an American made instrument with excellent craftsmanship, tone and value.

Back in the early seventies a young Jean-Claude Larrivee created the L body shape which has become a staple of the Larrivee guitar line. This body shape is similar to a classical body design and features a Symmetrical Parabolic X-Bracing pattern. This helps to provide an exceptionally well balanced instrument with great sustain and dynamics, and these characteristics are in evidence with the Rosewood-bodied Larrivee L03R and the Mahogany-bodied L03.

Over the last forty years the L Body design has been embraced by professional and serious amateur musicians around the world as possibly the most versatile flattop steel string guitar design in our business.

The Larrivee L03R features a classic tone wood pairing of Sitka Spruce and Khaya or African Mahogany. The Sitka spruce top has excellent dynamics and a great balance of warmth and crisp top end. The Indian Rosewood sides and back have a warmer fullness which add to its tonal character.

Because of its versatility and well balanced tone the Larrivee L03R works really well for fingerstyle playing, strumming and flatpicking.

The Larrivee L03R is sold with its original Larrivee branded hard shell case.
