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.

D-40 R Bluegrass Special

Larrivee D-40R Bluegrass Special with JCL inlay at 12th fret is brand new and sounds stellar. Rosewood back and sides with Sitka spruce top, satin finish, and a volume and tone that will make the banjos weep. In our experience the fit and finish on the Larrivee guitars is always exceptional, and this one takes things up a notch with flamed maple binding that is even prettier than is expected. It is a real delight.

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.
