  We have just posted a new 5 minute video with Jean on our YouTube channel www.youtube.com/LarriveeMedia

  In the video, Jean sums up the last 4 decades and offers a little bit of insight into his world while talking about the past, present and future of Larrivée.

  Enjoy!

When you hear him talk about guitars, you can really tell how much he loves what he does, especially when it comes to choosing the wood, the main ingredient in the soup as he puts its, I give so much credit to his entire family for such a down to earth hands on method of guitar building, they all know the recipe for the best guitars, now I really need to play a Bakersfield he's got me stoked about his electrics, I'm so glad I bought a Larrivee for my first high end acoustic... +1 +1 +1 +1

That was great!
Except, judging by the numbers of guitars people here own, I think it's only maybe 50 thousand musicians if we all have two or three! :-)
I really liked his comments on how he makes guitars, which in turn make musicians play music, and that makes people happy. It's quite touching.

The summer before last, we were visiting So. California, traveling up the coast from Los Angeles to my hometown north of Santa Barbara.  I knew Larrivee had been in Oxnard, CA for some time, but I moved away long before they arrived and I had never seen the plant.  I called them up, and asked if we could have a tour - not realizing that at the Larrivee factory, they don't really have factory tours.  After holding for a few minutes, they asked when we planned to arrive, and told me Mr. Larrivee (one of J.L.'s sons, I'm afraid I don't remember which one now) would show us around. 

We were treated to a very nice, informal tour for ~45 mins.  The factory work force had been cut back a good deal due to the economy; it was fairly quiet and there only seemed to be ~a dozen people there at the time.  Mr. Jean Larrivee was on the floor at a machine cutting kerfing, of all things.  He sort of shrugged and commented, well, he did a little of everything, and someone needed to cut kerfing, after all; he might as well do it.  He was nice enough to stop for a few moments to welcome us and chat, before Mr. Larrivee Jr told him to get back to work.  I especially enjoyed seeing a few newly finished and strung mandolins.  A very nice experience, the kind that made me I wish I could have opened a checkbook and bought an L-09 right there on the spot.
