Larrivee is launching new solid mahogany acoustics based on 1940s and '50s designs.
Revisiting the 1940’s and 1950’s the new all-solid mahogany guitars include an all-body vintage sunburst.
Based on the popular -03 Series, the Vintage models feature solid mahogany back and sides but distinguish themselves with a highly resonant mahogany top rather than the standard spruce, and a best-grade true vintage process all-body sunburst. The satin finish highlights the quality of the woods.
Other enhancements include Vintage Tulip style tuning machines, Vintage multi-strip rosette, multi-strip top-bind purling and large fretboard dots.
As with all -03 models the guitar feature a one piece neck and a hand-fit dovetail neck joint. They are all built in Larrivée's Canadian factory and come with a Larrivée archtop hardshell case included.
The -03 Vintage will ship in the UK initially with a choice of three body shapes and with an onboard-pickup included - the D-03E Vintage dreadnought, OM-03E Vintage and OOO-03E Vintage. All come equipped with the Shadow NanoFlex pickup.
All models will ship in June 2013, each priced at £1,899 RRP inc VAT.
