my initial post was;

Jean would build some cool guitars in the hot eighties!!!
no association, just saw it.

I sent the link to Customer service ( I believe it's John Jr.,) and received this reply.

Hey Kev,

The guitar was made by a fellow who worked for us. It was made in the Larrivée shop but is not a Larrivée instrument.

actually, no not hideous-well maybe to us conservative canadian folkie types.
but think of the guy who went to Jean back then with an idea for a guitar.
just for him. no one else, and I doubt if it went into "production".
larrivee STILL will do a custom build. Clearly that's what that one was back in the day.
maybe hideous to some, but one mans meat is another mans poisson- (that's fish en francais en Quebec- yes I know TL knows that already)

Like I said, Matthew Larrivee called my LT-1 hideous. It certainly isn't although, in loving tribute, I now call it Hidecki the Hideous. However, I'd like to know what he'd call that.  blush

Maybe. Pigs are prettier, however.

oh c'mon, don't try and dissuade me,
I already have a plan to make the missing head stock piece, match the paint, and start a new band.

Miss piggy will be the singer.

 i'll leave it up to anyone else reading these posts for band name suggestions.....

 honestly? Is this not a perfect guitar for the Larrivee Archives?
