Seems about right for Europe assuming excellent condition, maybe a tad high. They certainly sell for less in North America Sounds like a nice guitar

1988 larrivee RT3CM.   drool


That guitar was made July 11th, 1988.  It is a rare RT.  Very few were made.  Being an RT-3 carve top makes it even more rare.  The bridge pickup is not oem.  Can't tell for sure about the other 2 pickups.  The price depends on what you want it for.  Will it be a player, a collectable or both.  I've seen 80's Larrivee electrics go between $300 and $1500 depending on condition.   I would need better pictures, however it appears to be in good condition. In my opinion the 80's Larrivee electrics are definitely under valued.   As JOYCEfromNS pointed out, Europe will charge a premium.

First time I've heard of or seen pics of one of these models.  What a nice finishing job.  I really like the sunbursting on the neck.  Acknowledging the flamed maple front, is the rest of the body maple as well?  It almost looks like it's a neck through design.  Would that be correct?  Also curious about the label on the back of the headstock.  Looks like it has a maple leaf on it.  I presume that label is original to the guitar?  Just curious.

RT's are rare to begin with.  I know of only 8.  Due to gaps in the records it is likely there are several more.  Most were RT-2's and RT-4's.  I know of only 1 RT-3.  I matched its serial number to the one in this post.

It is a neck through.  The "R" denotes neck through while an "L" denotes bolt on.  The label is original, it says made in Canada.  Here is an example.

Beautiful Pics Mike!!! I think this thread is a bit of an eye opener for some who may not have been aware of just how beautiful a guitar Larrivee has been building since the 80's

Thanks for the information, Cybercanyon.  I don't suppose you have ever played one or heard one being played?

Of course he's played one (of the '80's Larrivee's); he owns one (at least one)!

I do have a few here and there.    
I have played them all, though some not as often as others.  They are great guitars in both sound and build quality. 
I would love to have that RT-3.  I wish it was in the states.

"...a few here and there."

A few what?

A few of the '80's Larrivees?

A few all together?

Be more specific, man!
