❌SOLD❌Larrivee LS 09 Small Body Steel String Natural, 2000


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Larrivee LS 09 uses the Larrivee Small body design – half an inch shallower, an inch narrower at the lower bout, half an inch narrower at the waist, but .2 inches wider at the upper bout. Otherwise, construction is very similar to the full size L body.

As an ’09’ level guitar, the Larrivee LS 09 uses a Sitka Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back, Mahogany for the body blocks and neck,and Ebony for the head plate, bridge and grained ivoroid-bound fingerboard. The body binding is flamed Maple. The scale length extends the design’s classical influence at 650mm or 25.6 inches, and the nut width is 44.5mm or 1.75 inches, great for complex fingerstyle playing. There is a small, clear plastic pickguard. The rosette sports an Abalone ring, and the headstock features the characteristic silver border, originally designed for Larrivee by Tony Duggan-Smith.

Tuners are Larrivee branded Ping models. This is a fully acoustic instrument with no pickups or electronics, or strap pins.

Here we’re looking at a Larrivee LS 09 built at the Vancouver, British Columbia shop and dating to September 12, 2000. It’s in very good clean condition with only minor wear. Like other Larrivee models, the harmonic spectrum is very evenly represented, and the sound is clear, crisp and harmonically complex.

The original Larrivee hard shell case is included, and contains the special truss rod adjustment tool.  This tool is designed to reach under the top braces and fit into the adjuster nut.
