Larrivee Brazilian Rosewood Parlor Guitar!!!
This Brazilian P-09BZ, is one of a limited run of guitars that Jean Larrivee builds a year. The wood is from Jeanís private collection acquired almost 30 years ago. They only made 20 or so of these and this is an outstanding example.
This guitar has a presence way above its size. Itís loud with a balance that became fantastic after changing out the nut and saddle. Believe it or not, this guitar came with a Tusq nut with a stock Bone saddle. I purchased a top quality West African Ivory nut and Elephant Ivory saddle from Bob @ guitarsaddles.com and had it professionally installed from a high-end Luthier I know.
Larrivee builds these guitars to accept medium strings. Being a 12-fret 24inch scale, these guitars really come alive when stringed with mediums. The action is low with no buzz and it plays like a dream. I wanted a couch guitar thatís easy to play when ďloungingĒ and thatís what this is. The sweet sound was a surprising bonus.
Iíve also replaced the stock tuners with Gotoh 510 Miniís, 18:1 ratio, Black and Gold. If you know anything about tuners, Gotoh is as good as you get. Their stock on many custom built guitars and a huge improvement over Larriveeís tuners. Smooth, accurate and great looking.
Itís in dead mint condition!! No fret wear, marks, dings, scratches or flaws that I can find. It has only been played inside in a smoke-free environment. Itís stored with my other guitars in a humidity controlled music room
