Larrivee LV-05E Lefty Natural, 2004 (No Longer Available)


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Here’s a great left handed guitar! Built in 2004, this is a Larrivee LV-05E Lefty 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 pickup and pre-amp set; power is provided by a standard 9v battery placed on the neck block.

This Larrivee LV-05E Lefty was built in Oxnard, California, dated to March 29 2004, and is in great shape with only very 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 ‘JCL’ 18:1 tuners, maple body binding, abalone rosette, and elegant silver headstock border.”

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