The L02 Larrivee Acoustic Guitar meets the boutique standards of Candian luthier Larrivee but comes at a very reasonable price. Solid Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides.
Hand crafted in Canada with a simlar pedigree to Larivee's 03 range of high end guitars, this a brilliant choice for your first serious acoustic.
“The –02 offers the same hand-build processes and solid wood construction as our standard line', says company founder Jean Larrivée. 'With its pro-sound solid sitka spruce top, the resonance and balanced sonic qualities of the –02 will only improve with age.“

The Larrivee is one of very few luthier guitar makers who never outsources their labelled guitars to the 3rd party (OEM) guitars manufacturers in third world countries. Larrivee works on the principle of high definition of acoustic guitar' sound output, easy playability, strict QA and consistent products across models.
As with all their guitars, the L-02 neck is fit in the traditional dove-tail method, and features an adjustable steel trust rod. The –02 series also features Graphtec TUSQ nut, saddle, and bridge pins for superior tone, synthetic tortoise-shell pickguard and 18:1 chrome tuners. Each –02 has luxurious and durable satin finish.
""Great quality at an affordable price worth investing in. Highly recommended. This range of guitars is set to be a giant killer". Acoustic magazine
“…Simple yet elegant build. Great all-round sound. Fingerstyle appeal. How can you look a gift horse in the mouth? Time to flash the cash, we say.” Music Radar
