Title: 72/73 Larrivee
Post by: headsup on March 05, 2018, 01:31:14 PM
Forgive me if I posted these pics before -i'm getting forgetful,
however the micro-dot poll got me thinking of the early inlays Jean used to do.
This guitar was ordered in 1972, it's the twin to the one I ordered the same time.
Back then Jean was building 2 at a time, delivery was 6-8 weeks, (after you gave him 50% deposit ($300).
My guitar, identical to this one is in Toronto ON.

 This one, still belongs to a good friend who lives in Kingston ON.
 the inlays seen here were standard at the time, which have evolved from the 1971 I have.

I believe they became the "torch" inlays? dunno.

Nice. Looks almost exactly like mine. Same head stock. Same inlays. Same label. Similar signature. Different date.  :cheers

Yes. And they evolved over time. Mine is a little more abstract, fragmented. It took me a while to realize what it was.
