“When you come across something this good, you don’t want to let it go…"
New to the Larrivée -03 Recording Series are the OM-03S Silver Oak and the OM-03A Swamp Ash. Built in the USA, these two special edition OM-03 models use woods rarely seen before on acoustic guitars. Silver Oak is in fact, Jean Larrivée’s favourite 'back and sides'tone wood.
Guitarist magazine review both models in the latest issue of the magazine where they are each awarded the magazine’s coveted Guitarist ‘Choice’ award.
“With Larrivée’s experience and such a considered design, ‘perfect’ is the direct word to describe the fingerboards, neck shapes and setup, not to mention the precise intonation”.
“Both guitars on review are superb pro-level tools, very-well priced and offering something a little different in terms of the woods and, in the case of the silver oak model, a 12-fret neck. They are both very special musical instruments that any discerning amateur or professional should be happy to add to their collection”.
“Although most players would automatically choose a 14-fret, this writer is going to have to be prised away from the 12-fret silver oak”.
On the Larrivée OM-03S Silver Oak…”Combining Larrivée’s favourite tone wood with his preferred 12-fret neck, is it any surprise this is so good?"
On the Larrivée OM-03A Swamp Ash…”This is an exceptionally beautiful acoustic guitar that nails it in looks, sound, feel and playability”.
