Here at Larrivée Guitars, we believe education to be one of the most important factors of our lives. With this in mind, we have prepared this section of our site for you. This area contains information on the materials we use, some of our guitar building secrets, and material on the music industry in general. Most of these are in the form of essays, some in the form of articles, but they should all provide you a good reference for study. This page will grow as time moves on and as we write more documents for this section. If you wish to use any of this material for publication, just let us know.
