I studied the pic on the Reverb site fairly hard and could see no sign of a crack. For a second I thought about messaging the seller asking how they managed to forget to disclose that, but, ya know, life's short . . .

But at least it adds another datapoint of skepticism buying sight unseen and the necessity of a return policy when buying.

Best of luck with the guitar, it's a beauty!

There was so much undisclosed damage on the old O-01MH that I bought from a forum member, it would require a whole new topic. With pictures.

    But for me it became "the O Project", my favorite Larrivee parlor of the  four I've had. Sometimes cracks, bumps and bruises make for better music.
     Still crooks are bad, and should leave us alone.

It has the nicest sound of them all, and since my house is always 72 at 50% hunidity, it looks fletter and thinner every day. It sounds so nice i cqn barely see it, if you know what I mean. Keeper for sure.

Is that a crack, or did the glue on the joint fail?

   Maintain 45% RH and the seam should seal up tite. Keep a close watch on humidity levels.
     Buy some hygrometers, and a room humidifier, if you don't have them.

Nice looking guitar, really clean lines in the design and the crack is hard to detect from the photos.

The cutaway gives you extra options at the top end and Larrivee goes above and beyond. I have a Venetian Cutaway on my 12 string.

Best wishes for many years of playing.

I do A/C for a living. You must have a very good system.
