Made in Canada, neck and body in accajou, button head and handle bne, table pica.
In truth much more beautiful than pictured on the site.

UTILIZATION

Super light weight, ergonomics is perfect but the abscence of sr cutaway makes Access in acute difficult.
I find the guitar trs trs beautiful "roots": no riv-flower abalone, no pick guard super dcor no gloss and no pan shot (you can not have it all: Access in acute and Aesthetics)
To get a good sound, but there is the more that work.

SOUNDS

I play Jazz and Blues: The Son. According to the attack gives color round dlicates or otherwise CLAT. An instrument extremely alive, the top medium is moving particulirement, bass and bright treble Submitted for trs.
For comparison, I have tried a Gibson Jumbo (the "little" I do not have the head in REFERENCE) and I find that my Larrive is positioned in a type of sound quite close in quality is a tiny notch below the bass and treble and plutt above the upper medium; All for half the price!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for three years, I find its sound as beautiful as ever, everyone compliments me on it.
If he really had to find a default I would say that may be, to bottle neck, the sound would be a bit bright for the traditional blues (I hsit purchase with any accajou Martin, trs type blues, but his quiet, just a little too open typ least ...). It would look really small bte because there are a lot of playing and recording blouseux now with the sounds of this type.
Other significant testing before acqurir: Guild and Gibson Larrive hand and a Dreadnought (entry level as well). I did not risk the super high end since I came out of the budget.

The report price seems exceptional quality and I do not regret hsit cherch essay and essay-r for a month before finding this guitar. I'll be curious to see what happens in the high-end of the mark, given the quality of the inter-end!
