Instrument Categories: , , ,

Built in 2006, this is a Larrivee LV-05E in very good, clean condition. Part of the Select Series, this model pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany for the sides, back and neck, with Ebony for the bridge and fingerboard. This model includes a factory stock L R Baggs I-Mix Notch pickup and pre-amp set; power is provided by a standard 9v battery located under the pop-out pre-amp.

This Larrivee LV-05E was built in Oxnard, California, dated to November 29 2006, and is in great shape with light wear to the frets and finish. It plays well, and has the warm, evenly balanced sound Larrivee is known for.

Here’s the builder on the Select Series:

“The 05 Select Series is our complete mahogany line, packed with versatility and detail.
These beautiful instruments offer a more balanced tone, with softer lows, stronger mids, and unpronounced highs. If you’re looking for strong, punchy attack, a mahogany top might be the custom option you are looking for. Standard features on the 05 series include Larrivee branded 18:1 tuners, maple body binding, abalone rosette, and elegant silver headstock border.”

The original branded hard shell case is included with this Larrivee LV-05E.
