They have some interesting wood combos such as this D-40R with a yellow cedar top.

I grew up a few doors down from the corner of Hollenbeck and Vine.  Of course, when I was young there were only a few houses and then, orange groves as far as you could see.  We never wanted for fresh juice.  Is the Fret House still up on Citrus in Covina?  Cool little shop, but I don't know that they carry Larrivees.  They used to have open mics there.

This is cool. They have a Larrivee D-40 Moonwood.
I played one at Guitar Tex and it sold pretty quick.
FF has it at the same price.
The top on that thing made it really sing clear and bright.
It is the best 40 series guitar I have played.

During the 60's we used to hitch down Glendora all the way to Huntington Beach.  Those were the days.

In my opinion The Fretted Frog is one of the last great guitar stores in Southern California.  Especially for Larrivee's.  Roland is a good owner and his shop has a downhome feel.  I have made the trek from Orange County several times.  Bill
