Larrivee / D-03 / 2012 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
This is a fine example of an excellent Canadian hand made guitar and, even though Jean Larrivee relocated to California in 2001, the 03 series guitars continued to be made in Vancouver until 2013. The Canadian sourced woods on his guitars don't sound like North American guitars, they have a much more earthy feel to them. This example is from 2012, and with 8 years of play the tone has matured beautifully. It features a Sitka Spruce top, Sapele back and sides, Honduran mahogany neck, and Ebony fingerboard and bridge. This guitar has a big sound, very resonant with excellent sustain - it has great definition and clarity for fingerpicking, and works well for strumming. The guitar is in good condition, with the right amount of playwear to tell you that the guitar has been played and loved in equal amounts. The neck feels great and the action is just right. It comes in it’s original embossed hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
