Larrivee LSV-11 Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar, 2006

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Designed with fingerstyle players in mind, the Larrivee LSV-11 features a slightly smaller, cutaway L body with a relatively short 24.8 inch scale length.

Introduced at the 2006 Winter NAMM show, the Larrivee LSV-11 was an immediate hit.

This early Larrivee LSV-11 example dates to August 11, 2006 and was built at the Larrivee shop in Oxnard, California. It features the cutaway LS body and pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, Mahogany for the body blocks, linings and neck, and Ebony for the pyramid-style bridge and ivoroid-bound fingerboard. The rosette is an Abalone ring and the spiral position markers are also Abalone. There is minor play wae around the soundhole and minor play wear around the guitar. Fret wear is light.

Here is what we had to say about the Larrivee LSV-11 when it was introduced:

“Most serious fingerstyle players these days demand a significantly wider nut dimension to facilitate the often challenging passages in the lower registers of the fingerboard, hence a 1 13/16″ bone nut was designated for the Larrivee LSV-11  model. Jean’s LS body size is absolutely perfect to achieve the balance, maximum note separation and tonal complexity demanded by the contemporary fingerstyle repertoire. The Larrivee symmetrical strutting system has been custom voiced for this new model and seems to lend extra layers of sparkle to the overtone series while maintaining a solid note fundamental with plenty of girth to support all of that shimmer in the high end!

I have to say that the new L.R. Baggs I-Mix System is definitely my favorite pickup/preamp ever on a Larrivee. The combination of the Element saddle pickup’s meaty tone & high feedback rejection in combination with the I-beam’s reproduction of high-end nuances makes for very transparent sound reinforcement!

Did I mention that this thing was an absolute dream to play? The short scale makes even close-voiced chords easy to grip! There has obviously been some considerable thought given to the ergonomics of this particular model — it just sits on your lap and falls into the perfect playing position! I LOVE THIS THING!!!”

A non-original TRIC case is included.
