For any lefty who might be interested, I just saw this on Reverb. I have no affiliation with the seller. Too bad I'm tight on cash right now:

Another instance of Larrivee dumping its electrics on the used market driving down used prices and resale values.  Caveat emptor.

Steve, that guitar is used, at least 5 years old.

That's what's confusing - 5 years old, yet never left the factory...

And with full factory warranty.  Simply put Larrivee has opted to sell off many electrics at low prices.  This has  negatively impacted resale values.  Nothing wrong with doing this per se.  I guess they really weren't in it for the long haul as previously stated in one video.

They had some left over bodies and necks.  Just putting them together as time allows.  Ie .... the components may be five years old, but the guitar was recently made.  Nothing more, nothing less.  They are still planning on getting back to new guitar fabrication, as time allows.  Their acoustic business is gaining steam, which means electrics will wait a bit.

I'm very glad to hear this, as acoustics will always be their bread and butter.

Andrew, all I'm saying is that I'm glad to hear that the acoustic line is doing well. I don't have any local Larrivee dealers, so it's really hard for me to gauge how they're doing from what I personally see in stores (not much, new or used). So if the acoustics are doing well, I'm glad to hear it.
