1993 Larrivee D-19M, Custom
Stunning curly maple. I could stop there, as I have your attention and you are heading to the picture link right now. But since you'll come back for the details, I may as well finish. Founded in 1967, Canadian guitar manufacturer Larrivee has been producing some outstanding, precision crafted guitars in the almost 50 years since. Here are the details on this 24 year old. Mahogany neck with a 25-1/2" scale grained ivoroid bound ebony fretboard. The 6 abalone position markers look like a torch with symmetrical wings. The peghead is decorated with a 3-1/2" long seahorse of engraved mother of pearl. The dreadnought shaped body had a Sitka spruce top with a professionally repaired center seam and the previously mentioned master grade quarter-sawn curly maple. The body is bound in straight maple with black & white purfling to accent. Tone wise the guitar booms. A significantly bigger bass than you expect from a maple instrument. After performing necessary quarter century maintenance of a refret and new bone nut and saddle, it's ready for you to make some fun music. This is not a model that is currently available, so if curly maple speaks to you, snag it now! In excellent condition with the original Larrivee branded hard case the price is $2,500.
