Title: something you don't see very often..
Post by: headsup on December 30, 2017, 04:30:59 PM
The only Larrivee Ebony guitar I know of, was the first cutaway ( C model) that was built for Bruce Cockburn decades ago.

here is a Larrivee  ebony guitar for sale in the marketplace.
 no affiliation, just thought others around here might be curious.....

Top has a very pretty patina to it now.
Photos of the back the ebony I wanted to see) are not very good. Too much glare.

I wonder what type of ebony it is.
I'm thinking makassar as I've seen several Bourgeois with that wood that look just like this Larrivee.  Plus, it seems to be an obtainable, useable ebony that builders don't mind working with.  Just based on research I did before.
How do you like yours?

I have one made of Indonesian/Makassar ebony.

I had a neck made out of that wood a few years back.  Beautiful wood...
