Larrivée OM-03 WL Walnut Limited (SOLD)

Here is a beautiful Larrivée OM-03 WL for sale. It is a rare, limited edition Peruvian Walnut model. It’s a very impressive guitar, completely HAND MADE in Canada (some sources say these limited edition models were made in USA) and this is absolutely noticeable! The attention to detail is amazing on this baby. Every little details are extra nicely designed and done!
There aren’t many of these made and not many around for sale on the net!

Founded way back in 1967 by the Canadian luthier Jean Larrivée, the company has built a solid reputation as a high quality acoustic guitar manufacturer with an impressive line of models,
including both steel string and nylon strung classical guitars. The company’s headquarters was originally in Toronto, Canada however in 1982, it relocated to Vancouver. In 2001, a second factory was opened in California and some sources say this was built here.

This limited edition version has a Peruvian walnut back and sides, made possible by a supply of this luxurious tonewood located by Jean Larrivée personally. It’s worth noting that Larrivée is internationally regarded as an expert in tonewoods, with a reputation for finding unique sources, so when a chance like this comes up it’s worth paying special attention.

Just look at what you are getting for your money! The top is a piece of fine looking Canadian Sitka spruce, the neck is a single piece of mahogany and it even has an African ebony fretboard and bridge. The guitar is beautifully bound using Canadian maple and it is worth noting how superbly the binding has been done.

The neck joint is a traditional glued, dovetail type and, again, the workmanship here is very impressive indeed. The fretboard has been bound to the neck with a very nice Ivoroid binding with exactly the same attention to detail. You’ll find Larrivée machine heads at the headstock end of the instrument, which features a rounded Larrivée design and Larrivée logo along the top. Finishing touches include Herringbone Inlaid Rosette, an exclusive bevelled Tortis pickguard and microdot fretboard markers.

Larrivée suggests the sound is closer to that of koa, with a well balanced, warm tone.

It very hard not to be impressed with this Larrivée.

The build quality is exceptionally good with a great attention to detail and the playability is second to none. This is an all solid wood guitar so should improve with age!

It is in very well looked-after, near mint condition, but it has a mark on it, that’s why I can’t sell it as a completely mint guitar.

It has original booklet, truss rod tool and comes with a fantastic looking deluxe custom Larrivee hard case! I think this package is well worth the £750 that I’m asking for it! SOLD
