Larrivée All-Walnut Special Editions in stock
Right now we have some gorgeous Larrivée 03 Series All-Walnut special editions in stock.
In OM and Parlour body shapes they retail at just £1249 and £1099 respectively. Call us on 01462 480000 for stockists!
This is what Acoustic Magazine magazine had to say about them!
“Every conceivable facet of the OM-03’s construction is just ludicrously good. In all my days, I don't think I've ever come across a guitar builder that can rival the consistency of quality that Larrivée offer”.
“These guitars are so immaculately built, you’d think a 3D printer has churned them out - yet this is a crafted, organic product designed to create art”.
“As always with Larrivée value for money is quite remarkable - for just over the £1000 mark you will really struggle to find a guitar maker that offers so much across its rage of instruments”.
