Team -

I saved this beauty from being savaged at a pawn shop.  Paid $807 (!) for it with the body being in superb condition, save for a previously repaired center seam.

I put $275 in it, all work done by the famous Colfax Guitar Shop (Dave Dougherty) in Denver:  custom bone nut and compensated saddle, full fret dress and setup, confirm and shave down cleats, reglue the bridge, smooth the center seam on the top.  Can barely tell there was ever a problem.

It genuinely sounds splendid.  Many of you know that I've had many dozens of Larrivees pass through my hands, and this one is comfortably in the top 10%.

Wonderful inlays, including headstock, and collector grade quilted maple.

$1299 shipped/paypal/insured to a forum member.  I'll make $100 for rescuing this guitar after all said and done.
