Marty and Don are retiring by the end of the year and Wildwood Music in Coshocton, Ohio will be closing.

Great people, great Larrivee dealers. They hosted a visit with Jean Larrivee in 2013 and several of us got meet him and have dinner with him.

Good luck to them. Tough to run a brick and mortar store in this day and age.

Marty and Don, the nicest of people and so very helpful/knowledgeable.  I bought a couple of Larrivees through the years and it was great dealing with them.  It's sad to hear of their store closing but my very best to them on their retirement.  Well done Wildwood Music!

Which OO?  I might have played it during my last visit to Wildwood.

OO-10 with snakewood binding. I'm drawn to smaller guitars.

The LV-03 I just passed along to my son came from Marty and Don. Stores such as theirs are few and far between, and their retirement will leave at least a small hole in the retail guitar world. They've been selling off their special "vault" instruments for a few months now.

One good thing about Thunder Bay is that, due to market pressure all but one music store has closed down. Well, in itself, that's not the good part but the "last man standing" is a mom and pop store that is just fabulous. Like a more human oriented Guitar Center. World Music Academy. Great people. Big store. Incredible inventory. Lots of Larrivees but they also have the dealership for all the big names. Martin, Taylor, Gibson, Yamaha, Fender, Guild, Marshall, Ibanez and many more including drums, keyboards etc. They ship world wide, as well.

Mine. I've been wanting a parlor for quite a while. Couldn't pass this up. 


Larrivee Custom P-05, Italian Alpine Spruce/Quilted Mahogany!


This guitar plays like a little angel!! Jean Larrivee found the top for this guitar near the grove of trees where Stradivari got the tops for his violins. (Did you know Stradivari also made two small-bodied guitars?!!) The very special woods on this instrument are protected with Larrivee's beautiful and great-sounding Full Gloss finish. For binding, Jean Larrivee chose attractive Maple. A hard shell case completes the embrace of this fabulous creation! This divine Parlour has a very clear, pure voice, and makes a fabulous music companion!!

Don’s health issues are likely a big part of why they’re calling it quits. That and the fact that they been doing this forever,it’s time. I wouldn’t mind picking up something from them like another 10 series Larrivée before they turn out the lights for the last time.
