Larrivee OM-09 Rosewood with Torch Inlay

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Larrivee OM-09 draws from the classic Orchestra Model design developed in the late 1920’s as banjo players migrated to guitar. This model features a Sitka Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, with Ebony for the bridge, head plate and bound fingerboard. 

While it is a regular production model, the Larrivee OM-09 can be customized. We ordered this example with the beautiful Torch headstock inlay by Wendy Larrivee, executed in various shells and metals, and the silver border inlay originally designed for Larrivee by Tony Duggan-Smith.

Here’s the builder on the Larrivee OM-09 and the 09 Artist Series:

“An industry leader in its class, the 09 Artist Series is one of the longest standing models in our catalog.
The 09 is the genesis of Jean’s ‘recipe’, reached perfection with the first L09 originally built in the ’70s. 40 years later, not much has changed. A perfect combination of East Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, and powered by Jean’s legendary X-Brace system. The 09 Series delivers a powerful, yet balanced, dynamic range. For custom wood options, please see our custom pricing list.
Whether in the studio or live, flat-picking or strumming, this true American workhorse offers all the response and the tone you will need. Standard features include JCL 18:1 tuners, flamed maple trim, and abalone rosette. “

The Larrivee OM-09 is sold with its original hard shell case.
