The Larrivée Guitar
November 22, 2015
For over 45 years, Larrivée has been pulling off some of the most fascinating custom guitars around. Between Jean Larrivée's unparalleled access to exotic woods and Wendy Larrivée's fascinating inlays, lies some of the finest precision and detailed craftsmanship in the world of guitars.
The Larrivée Custom Shop offers a wide range of options that are listed in our downloadable CUSTOM PRICING list. Imagine, expanding your collection and designing a Larrivée that is your very own. Exotic woods that are not only visibly but sonically spectacular. Add some inlay on your fingerboard, or perhaps a figurine on your headstock. Personalize with a custom label. Fine tune your playability with a custom nut width. All these options are available and more. You are unique, your acoustic can be too.
Visit our Custom Guitar Section to view current and archived works. New customs are added regularly with the launch of our new website so check back regularly. For more information on custom shop work and ordering, please contact your authorized dealer or email us at Larrivée Service.

Featured Dealer: Long & McQuade - CANADA
In 1956 two young fellows, Jack Long and Jack McQuade, decide to sell instruments in the downtown Toronto area to the local community. 59 years later and over 63 shops, an L&M can be found in most cities from Newfoundland to British Columbia. L&M have carried the Larrivée brand for over 30 years and know their stuff. If you are ready for your first Larrivée, the staff at L&M are extremely knowledgeable and can fit you into the right guitar for you. If you are a seasoned Larrivée player then you know L&M has one of the largest Larrivée selections in Canada. In-store and online.
