Larrivee

Guitars

Larrivee was the first line of guitars we took on when we opened back in 1999. Great then, we feel that they have gotten even better today. Jean Larrivee has been making world class guitars for more than 50 years. In the early years they became noted for their elaborate and ornate inlay work done by Jean’s wife Wendy. You can still get a fancy inlaid Larrivee, but the 2 & 3 series is their entry level which offers features like a bound ebony fingerboard and bridge; all solid wood construction; maple wood body binding, dovetail neck joint. Since they moved their manufacturing from British Columbia to Southern California they have evolved and developed guitars that have a broad appeal to players of all styles. The 40, 44, 50, and 60 Series guitars are voiced to produce a classic “American” sound. Lately Larrivee has once again began making some outstanding electric guitars.

Today there are many highly regarded Canadian luthiers who apprenticed under Jean Larrivee and his influence is reflected in their work.

Larrivee L-10

L-model instruments are a shape and design unique to Larrivee, and the 10-series instruments feature elegant appointments and choice tone woods. This L-10 features an alpine moon spruce top along with Wendy Larrivee’s fine inlay work. A gorgeous instrument, it plays even better than it looks.

Larrivee 0-40R

Rich, robust tone with excellent volume that defies its diminutive size, the Larrivee 0-40r is a 12-fret guitar constructed of solid Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood. It creates a big voice from a compact body.

Larrivee OO-03R

We are easy to reach from both the San Antonio International Airport and from Downtown.

From Downtown
We are at 4330 McCullough, and McCullough goes all the way downtown. In the old days, it was one of the few routes out of down town that didn’t cross railroad tracks. (A big deal when you have a wagon – I’ve heard. Never experienced it.) The maps and driving directions will help alot. Easy to know when you’re getting close because we’re just past the traffic circle/fountain.
