I'm thinking about ordering a maple D-size Larrivee. Was wondering if anyone has played a maple Larrivee and could describe the sound.

We've had ever style in stock at one time or another.I really like maple bodies.I own a P Anderson OM very distinctive tone stronger mid's then what you find in other woods.Everyone thinks that maple is to brite but for me the added mid's is what it's all about.

One of the last Larrivee's at our local Guitar Center was maple back and sides. It was a large bodied venetian cutaway....spruce top. I liked it better than anything they had out....and it didn't last too long, someone snatched it up.
It was bright, but not overly so....clear and loud, and dry. I liked it!

My husband has a maple Guild, and the thing I have noticed most is the clarity of individual strings--not at all muddy. I'm not sure I'd like maple on a small-bodied guitar--maybe too bright, but I didn't think I'd like koa too well, either, and now I have 2 of them...

The natural finish maple sure is pretty!

The reason I'm looking is I've played a D-size maple in the past from another manufacturer and really liked the sound.

It was crisp and balanced from bass to treble. I could get nice bass tones if I played hard and when I did high leads it just sang. A great strumming guitar for my style.

On the other hand I've tried out various maple guitars at guitar stores that were totally dead or muted sounding and that is not what I'm after.
