This is a close up of the finish! The owner simply says he has the gloss finish refinished and now the matte/shellac allows the sound to flow out much better. I didn't consider asking him why he gets it refinished so really thanks for the important pointer! First time trying to get a Larrivee (first time trying to get a high-end guitar anway haha) so I really need much input!

Exercise caution. I'm guessing it needed refinished. What other abuse has it been through?

Looks like a good job from that picture. Shellac is a very easy finish to repair. So it may be a good deal.

   You say this is an 09, but it looks like mahogany, which makes it an 05. The 09's are usually made from rosewood.

The guitar is in excellent condition all thing considered. There is one ding that's nearly invisible and another mark up the neck which I think is justifiable since it's a 1998 model. From the series number it's definitely a rosewood b/s 09 though. Really besides the finishes I'm really happy with the guitar appearance. And it's okay if I return after checking it out for a few days so my main concern is really only about the finishes' durability since I never hear about a shellac finish before haha. Thank yall for the info!

Please post more pics. The one you put up is not  rosewood.

   I just got it. That must be a pic of the top.

You are a tricky one. That top looks fine, a nice patina.
