Handcrafted in North America. Founded in 1967, Larrivee builds "affordably luxurious" guitars. The Canadian company only uses solid woods! No ply, synthetics or laminates need apply!
Like most guitar builders, Larrivee builds its core models with Rosewood and Mahogany. They offer a custom shop as well as limited-run guitars. As Larrivee dealers, Mantova's is eager to work with you on ordering a custom piece! If you need some ideas to get started, here are some one-off models.
Larrivee participates in trade shows and guitar showcases around the world. Click here to stay informed and see if there is an upcoming show near you!
Larrivee has produced a great, short documentary series detailing the start and focus of the company. The behind-the-scenes videos are worth a watch! Here they are, enjoy!
Larrivee has two factories, one is the original in Canada, but the other is in California!
The search for wood is perhaps one of the features that makes Larrivee guitars supreme. Larrivee spends 3-4 months a year hunting for premium woods for it's instruments.
