A beautiful guitar from the craftsmen at Larrivee guitars! Jean Larivee's gorgeous creations have one many fans looking for gorgeous guitars that sound great, play great and are flawlessly constructed. This OM size beauty is no exception. Super quality solid woods throughout. The top is solid Sitka Spruce while the back and sides are solid mahogany. The top is braced in a symmetrical X pattern for tons of projection. The 25.5 inch scale mahogany neck features a bound ebony fingerbaord with 20 frets and delicate microdot fingerboard inlays. The neck is attached with a traditional dovetail joint for good tone. A Venetian style cutaway offers access to the highest frets. An ebony bridge and sealed tuners keep it all rock solid. A great sounding pickup and preamp allows you to plug in and be heard. The natural finish looks gorgeous and compliments the gold hardware. Classy appointments include multiple body binding, a pearl headstock logo and sterling silver inlaid headstock border. An incredible instrument for fingerstyle, blues or just about anything you can throw at it.

Like most Larrivee I've seen, this guitar plays and sounds as good as it looks. The action is low, the frets are fine and the neck is straight. Nice tone and projection. The factory pickup delivers nice sound that's more natural than many other guitars. Everything works as it should. Condition wise, this guitar is super clean. Bought new and recently traded into yours truly, it's seen little playtime. Very light playwear and pick scratches. A very, very nice guitar. Comes with original hardshell case.

Larrivee no longer offers the OMV-05 model. Really a shame as it's a heckuva guitar. Spotless workmanship, top notch materials and incredible tone. A good value as well. If you're considering a Taylor, Breedlove or other similar acoustic, you owe it to yourself to check out this Larrivee.
