Larrivee / P-03QM / 2014 / Natural Maple / Guitar For Sale
This is a lovely Larrivée P-03 Recording Series Parlour Guitar produced on October 14th, 2014. Larrivee prides itself on being plugged in to the entire process of producing a finished, hand-made guitar, from log selection on the forest floor to final quality control in their Oxnard, California workshop. Their aim to build not the most guitars, but the best, is evident on the P-03 Parlor. Hand selection of the woods has ensured that the top, back and sides operate optimally from a tonal perspective; the guitar has a very balanced sound, characteristic of the classic Sitka Spruce Top and its optional figured Quilted Maple back & side combination. The smaller body means that there is no overwhelming bass response, making it perfect for recording too, as the series name suggests. The P-03 features ebony headplate, fretboard and bridge, with a bone nut and saddle. Combined, these components maximise the guitar’s resonance transfer from strings to body, as does the company’s signature handfit dovetail neck joint. Multi-strip purfling adorns the top, while the whole body – including the fretboard – is bound in maple. The pickgard is finished in Larrivee’s signature tortoiseshell, while the bridge shape is an elegantly simple rectangular parlour type. Simplicity is also the key with the fretboard – punctuated by white dot fret markers – and headplate – a simple inlaid Larrivee logo with no binding. This P-03 is certainly near mint & comes w/its original warranty manual & truss rod wrench in its original Black hard case.
