Only have two Larrivee`s. First is an L-01 hog b/s, and I`m always amazed by the tone and action of this git! I sometimes think I must be exaggerating
to myself just how good this guitar is! Then I go and pick it up and,  well!!!

The D-03sp is also a pleasure to play and hear! Not as good as the L-01 (tone wise) but it`s only young yet and it is improving!


Cheers all!

My first is a LV-03R. What can I say.....a great guitar that I should play more.
Definitely a keeper.

I am starting to think that I need a dread w/mahogany back and sides....

My first post also.....glad I found the forum......any input on the dreads is very welcome.

My first was a 98 D-09 bought new with all that was left in my late Dad's estate when all the dust had settled.  There was just enough left, so I bought a guitar in memory of him.  He taught me my first 3 chords when I was about 10.  It will never sell and It gets better all the time.  My second was a 97 special edition OM-09 Walnut.  Best sounding guitar for finger style I have yet to hear.  It will never sell.  My latest is a P-03R and her and I are just falling in love.  I don't plan to sell any of my Larrivees.  Have sold plenty of my other guitars and will sell more ... to buy my next Larrivee, a 12 fret Pete Anderson OM when I find one.

My '08 L-03BB.   Bought it new a few months ago.  Not my favorite guitar, but still a keeper.

It was a mid '90's (I  had Buzz at lark street when he was in Albany NY order it for me) LS mahogany. Very plain and I would still have it had it been a short scale. The workmanship was flawless and I loved the design.

Hey folks.  This is my first post on the forum.  I'm pleased to say that I'm now a proud owner of a D-02.  I picked it up from the Ottawa Folklore Center.  I play a wide range of styles (different session work, etc), but never had a great acoustic.  My passion is bluegrass when not playing mostly jazz or blues gigs, but I feel like this guitar will fit well with any occasion. 

I'm looking forward to getting down to some woodshedding on this guitar and seeing what sounds I can get out of it.

I got my first an, 0M-05 about nine months ago. That was followed by an L-03RE a couple of months later. The only pics I have are from the original owners, hope they don't mind me posting them. ( The lefty world is a small one and I'm guessing they may be members here  )

I was on a quest to find the perfect guitar. There was no price limit. I tried Martins, Taylors Gibsons and all the usual suspects but my ear kept turning toward a brand I wasn’t familiar with- Larrivee. Every store I went to no matter what they carried, if they carried Larrivee, that’s the one I liked best.

My mission took me to almost every music store, large and small, in Northern California. One magical day I went to Marc Silber Music in Berkeley, California. Marc is a luthier and had just taken this in trade for one of his custom creations. Well, it was love at first strum. While playing it, I was fortunate to have the first owner come in to pick up his new guitar. I asked him why he was selling such a great instrument and he said it was to pay for a new custom made guitar.

Well, I bought it on June 1, 1999 and owned it until October 4, 2008. The only reason I sold it was to pay for a D-72. Both the D-10 and the D-72 sounded almost identical.  I now have the D 72, a C-10 and a OM-10 custom shop. I must admit, I am a sucker for bling, however, that is not why I bought it. It just sounded great.

What I find unusual in retrospect after I became more familiar with Larrivee, is that none of the fret markers are the same. Also, I have seen very few griffin headstocks.
