  • Nobody Does It Like Jean!

    September 13, 2016

    When it comes to sourcing the finest tonewoods in the world, nobody can pull it off like Jean Larrivée.

    He is a master guitar maker with a passion for traveling the globe in search of the finest fibers. Whether it's clambering through the jungles of India for Rosewood and Silver Oak or climbing through shipping containers arriving from Africa on the shipping ports of Southern Europe. Sometimes it's day's or weeks in the Alps going through thousands of Spruce sets selecting only the finest. There is no doubt the work is demanding but for Jean, it is a labor of love.

    From the steep cliffs of the tropical Hawaiian Islands, the Koa on this LV-10KK Custom is a testament to Jean's dedication sourcing the finest fibers on the planet. For complete photos and specs click here. For other available custom exotic woods, please contact your Larrivée dealer.
