Larrivée celebrates 50th anniversary with special edition Silver Oak O3 Series models

All models come in a hard shell case and are available on a first-come first served basis.

Larrivée Guitars has introduced a limited run of 03 Series Silver Oak acoustic guitars.  

Priced identically to standard 03 models, these special editions feature free of charge upgrades to stunning solid Silver Oak back and sides, a Premium solid Sitka Spruce top (as used in Larrivée’s 10 Series) and black stripe body binding (from Larrivée’s 09 Series).

Personally selected by Jean Larrivée as one of the best kept secrets of the guitar building world, Silver Oak has a sound “as jaw-dropping as its figuring”. When asked about Silver Oak in a 2014 Guitarist magazine interview Jean explained: "It is one of the best woods I've used. We made our 45th anniversary [guitars] with this wood, so I feel very strong about it. It was a real surprise at the beginning. I thought it was a freak so I made a few others and the results were the same, so I decided to make many of them."

Larrivée is now using Silver Oak for its 50th anniversary guitars. Body shapes include a P-03E parlour guitar equipped with a Shadow Nanoflex pickup, a dreadnought-shaped D-03E with LR Baggs Anthem pickup system and four OM orchestra models, including a non-electro OM-03 model, two OM-03E electro-acoustic models with either a Shadow Nanoflex or LR Baggs Anthem pickup option, and finally an OMV-03E electro-acoustic model with LR Baggs Anthem system and Venetian cutaway.

All models are made in the USA, come in a Larrivée hard shell case and are available on a first-come first served basis.
