Any guitar made of solid wood in Canada in Vancouver. The table is made of maple "STIKA" they are near their factory, back and sides are Indian rosewood (the best if we forget the Brazilian rosewood). The handle is when he has made from one piece of Mahogany and has 20 frets. The saddle is made Tusq: an imitation ivory as well as being nicer than the plastic keeps the tuning longer. The button and the bridge are ebony Africa. The netting around the body is maple and one of the key is in ivory. The benchmark test of the guitar are so small that it is almost visible to whoever is playing. The entire guitar is protected by a satin finish that gives the instrument a simple and very classy in my eyes.

In terms of electronics, found a LrBaggs "Element Notch system" simply consists of a piezo pickup near the bridge position and a pre amp consist of a 3-band equalizer and different button with the aim prevent feedback: a button that reverses the phase, a potentiometer which allows you to choose a frequency that feedback and allowing another to reduce the gain.

Anecdote Seller: Larrivee guitars arrived on the old continent by air to avoid changes in humidity and temperature too high. I do not know if it's true but it is like the special care that provides its Larrivee guitars.


The template of the guitar is close to a template auditorium: therefore, I imagine it will not interfere too much people who are not very large. There is no hook attachment, if you want to put a strap, you could always try to use the jack and a lace hook to the head (I give up because I think its not practical at all). With this method, you can see its light weight and its relatively good balance.
The neck is quite wide and adopts a C which is both very nice for chords cushy or small fly lyric.


I admit to not being an expert in folk guitar sound: I do not know recognize the good and bad guitar made. This guitar seems very balanced tonal perspective. Thus I find it fit for everything. She also does a lot of noise.
I did try connecting on my electric guitar amp and a special electro acoustic amp when I try them in store. The test in stores, I will remember that it is easy to have a sound: the system LrBaggs although very simple is quite effective.


I buy two weeks ago but I had the opportunity to try it in multiple situations: in my room, at a small beef with friends at trendy TIMES in my guitar amp any electric lamp and a small concert (3 songs) into "umplugged" in a ballroom at a birthday with a small 50aine people who will not spank a noise, and she managed to impress me and my entourage. Aquer before, I had to try 5-6 models in a price range which turned over around 1000 euros (that is my budget) including a takamine, taylor a lag and 2. Its all to say that I was not between the hand model that I can compare it (it is for her that I put 10/10 as well). The music store where I buy me spinning a truly unbeatable price but for those who buy at the price where it is normally sold (most around 2000 euros), kept in mind that this is as stated the black box of an instrument for a lifetime in the image of Martin.
Finally I will add my opinion as good as what he would replace a long essay in store.
