Larrivee L04 Rosewood Satin Finish, 2014 New Old Stock

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Larrivee L04 – now discontinued – paired with a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood, on the very successful L body, resulting in a tonally well balanced guitar

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 shape and features a Symmetrical Parabolic X-Bracing pattern. This helps to provide an exceptionally well balanced instrument with great sustain and dynamics. Over the last forty years this model 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.

This particular version, the Larrivee L04, features rosewood sides and back which provides a deep and full bass response with lots of lush overtones. Paired with the excellent dynamics and crisp yet smooth attack of the Sitka spruce top and you have rich and well balanced guitar. Top it off with a very comfortable body shape and subtle elegant visual features like Canadian maple body binding and a herringbone inlaid rosette and you have a guitar that is much fun to play and look at as it is to listen to!!

Here we’re looking at a New Old Stock Larrivee L04, dated via serial number to June 26 2014 at the Larivee shop in Oxnard, California. It is in new condition, with a satin finish on the back, sides and neck, but a light gloss finish on the Sitka Spruce top that is naturally sinking to the grain.

The original hard shell case is included.
