A beautiful custom 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 beauty is no exception. Super quality solid woods throughout. In addition, this custom made model features intricate pearl inlay work from Wendy Larrivee. The top, back, and sides are solid figured koa. Gorgeous looks and tone here. The body is bound in wood and abalone. The 25.5 inch scale mahogany neck features a bound ebony fingerboard with 20 frets and delicate deluxe fingerboard inlays. An ebony bridge and sealed tuners keep it all rock solid. An undersaddle pickup lets you plug in. The finish is a thin, natural gloss lacquer. Some of the grain even shows through. The headstock is adorned with a gorgeous art nouveau lady called Emily. Stunning work. A presentation grade instrument for the player or the collector!

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. Collector owned, it has seen very little playtime. It shows some very light pick and clearcoat scratches and some very light indents. There is some light to moderate wear on the edges of the clear pickguard. Comes in original hardshell case.

This is a rare opportunity to grab a very special custom guitar. Truly a presentation level instrument with some of the most beautiful inlay work I've seen. A comparable new one would cost a small fortune. Here's one at a great price.
