Here's the same concept that "dad" made back in the eighties.
Two of Jean's hand wound HB pups.

Note the headstock shot?


Then I believe Matt was the prime mover behind the newer model?

Both lovely guitars indeed.

What a legacy .... all in the family!

I hope Larrivee will start building electrics again someday... and start with these Telegibs... something unique for a new generation of players (yes, I realize Mr. Beck played one way back when...).

Interestingly, the logo on the 80's version matches my 1982-83 L-07.  A relatively short-lived logo version, as I understand it.

I believe he still does.  MOF, Jeff will be playing at the Chumash casino here soon.  I wonder if he will drop in on Seymore and pick up one of the 35th anniversary Duncan models.  Imagine,  Beck playing a guitar partially made by Larrivee.

Most of the time these days I see Mr. Beck playing his Fender Strat sig model... And those 35th Anniversary SD guitars were FULLY made by Larrivee (using Mr. Duncan's pickups, of course).

technical update on this pair of guitars with, what 35 years between them in age?

been playing both, back to back, through different stage rigs.

the Vancouver  eighties one, i believe is pre C&C, with Jean's dinning room table hand wound pick ups, ebony fingerboard, & Schallers.
The "Malibu" is, I will guess, somethings son Matt has been part of, and I believe with his own pick up design.

Other than the comfy body contour on the newer model, and a couple obvious electric changes, the guitars, are very similar with regards to  output, and tonal responce.

at lower studio volumes, the Malibu has a wider frequency range, but when opened up full on tube loud, they both have terrific sonic soar....
