2003 Larrivee O-01 Mahogany – £1099
NEW ARRIVAL Larrivee started building their first parlour guitars in 1999, and in a short space of time have become considered one of the premier builders in the market – aimed at pro level, but at a price that won’t break the bank. This O-01 with a Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides is a classic looking guitar, the satin finish keeps it understated, and the bound Ebony fingerboard with no dot markers is simple and classy. Considering the small body size, this guitar has a big sound, very resonant with excellent sustain. The guitar works well for strumming, and has great definition and clarity for fingerpicking. The guitar is in very good condition, with one superficial top crack on the lower bout, treble side, and has upgraded Waverley open back tuners. The neck feels great and the action is just right. It comes in a non original hard case.
