Why are some older models labeled location as  simply ” made in Canada”. This is as opposed to the Victoria or the Vancouver British Columbia Canada labels.
Is it possible they were produced during the short stint that the plant was in North Vancouver before moving to Cordova street Vancouver?
I’ve searched the forum and internet for info but come up empty

Certainly were, started in '67.

On the Larrivée website you can see the labels and location history.

Do you have a picture of such a label or stamping? I've never seen one listed "made in Canada" without mentioning Victoria, B.C., Vancouver, etc.

That's the same label from the Vancouver/BC era.



Also the same label that was used for the Forum VI.

The label appears to be same style as the Vancouver BC era ones but I find it weird that it just says "Made in Canada". Note this is not my guitar but one I was considering purchasing so I don't have the serial number so I don't know the build date etc.

I would try and get the SN so you can find out a build date and that will give you more information on where in Canada it was built.

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...
