Larrivee Custom, DV03E, Walnut/Italian Alpine Spruce

Larrivee Custom, DV03E, Peruvian Walnut/Italian Alpine Spruce

Deep in Peru's dense Amazon Basin, native Iquito residents recovered the Nogal(Walnut) log which became this Custom Larrivee! The nutty "fruit" of this tree provided food and medicinal compounds for the tribe, and the profits for the sale of the wood might have been used to acquire tools or watercraft--river travel is the only way to get to market! This Walnut wood's lush, dark chocolate appearance invites imaginative thoughts about what magical tunes might be created by the lumber's new shape--perhaps it will meet up with other "neighbors" from its forest home--Rosewoods, maybe? The shimmering sounds and confident tones from this glorious joining of European Alpine and South American Walnut is certain to generate captivating and glorious songwriting!

Larrivee Custom LV-03E, Italian Alpine Spruce/Genuine South American Mahogany

Larrivee Custom LV-03E, Italian Alpine Spruce/Genuine South American Mahogany

This is such a special Custom Larrivee LV-03, and we are so very proud of the workmanship, the consummate pride, and the superior materials that were used in making this unbelieveable sounding Italian Alpine Spruce and Genuine South American Mahogany guitar. We asked that Bubinga wood be used to bind the back, sides, and top, because it just gives this guitar such an elegant appeal! As you view all the pictures--we took lots of them--notice that every detail of binding and purfling are exact and cleanly aligned. The hand-inlaid Maple Larrivee script in the headstock and the clean lines of the Maple outling around the headstock border all visually speak to the extreme care and love of precision each instrument received in its individual crafting! This is not just some quickly-assembled, thrown together morass of wood and strings that is glued and spray-finished and shoved out the door! No! This is a superior, skillfully-crafted treasure that will provide years of precious symphonies and heartfelt memories to fill legions and lives of musicians and those that revere their artistic seranades! The perfect merging of this Italian Alpine Spruce together with American Mahogany grown in ideal soils, moistures, and nourishing tropical rains, produce sounds you will forever clasp in your heart . The Powerful Stage Pro Preamp, by L. R. Baggs, features a Chromatic Tuner, Volume controls, and the Notch Filter Phase Inversion. You can know John Larrivee Jr. personally offers to you the very best instruments the Larrivee Guitar Company continues to build, with their fine skill and expert luthery!
