I have a 1996 Larrivee L 05 which I bought new in 1996.

I had a look recently inside the guitar with mirror and noticed a patch on the top about 2 inches south of the bridge plate.

I am wondering if Larrivee out this there to prevent seam separation or whether the dealer may have done this.

Any opinions appreciated.

Have you had a pickup professionally installed?

There is no pickup-top does not show signs of separation and the patch is approx 1 inch by

 1/2 inch

Sounds like a cleat was installed to repair a crack.

I bet it was the area where a pick-up might be installed.  Probably no flaw in the guitar. This topic has come up before.

I am the original owner so I suspect the dealer may have done this as they may have suspected a seam seperation.

Except the subject patch is under the top, not on the side where a preamp would be installed.

Is the long axis of the patch across the grain: or parallel?

I'll bet it is a cleat.  Can't see any other reason it would be there unless it was some kind of base for a transducer of some kind.

My OM-03 has four cleats under the lower bout (2 cracks equidistant from the center-line).  The repair is very sound and doesn't affect the tone as far as I can tell.  However, the cracks are still quite visible on the top.  It is the reason I got it for such a good price.
