"Unusual, high class and some considerable bang for your buck”.
The Larrivée -03 flamed ash limited edition guitars feature premium European flamed ash back and sides and are available in Dreadnought (D), Larrivée (L) and Parlour (P) body shapes. Complimenting the ash back & sides is a unique marquetry ash leaf headstock inlay design by Wendy Larrivée. Acoustic review the Dreadnought model in the new issue of the magazine where it receives a five out of five overall rating.
"Ash despite being used widely by Guild in the past, is perhaps most famous to the guitar playing world as Telecaster wood. It's dense - so can be prohibitively heavy in less skilled hands than Larrivee's - and often in appearance, a bit dull. The D-03 proves a striking exception”.
“...this D-03 offers great sustain and as much volume as you'd want from a classic dread while successfully avoiding any unwanted excess boom-baggage in the bass. It delivers the clear, even mids of a top-notch fingerstyle guitar and rings and reverberates long, loud and clear, right up the neck”.
"This is an immaculately-built instrument and while we could dwell at further length on technical nuance and Larrivee-specific build techniques (the special x-bracing and dovetail neck joint, for example), the bottom line is, it simply looks and sounds superb”.
The full review can be found in the January 2017 issue of Acoustic magazine on sale now. The Larrivée -03 flamed ash limited edition guitars are also available now starting at £1499 RRP inc VAT.
