The revolutionary new 40 Series features Larrivée Guitars' "Scalloped Parabolic Hybrid" bracing system design.
Based on the tried and true "X-Brace" design, Jean Larrivée blended a non-symmetrical scalloped lateral cross-bracing pattern with the standard X-Brace. This means maximum strength using the least amount of material. It's a build that allows even further vibration of the soundboard, while still offering a controlled bass response. The 40 Series are built in America using all solid wood, like all Larrivée's, and feature brand new upgrades like bone bridge pins, bone nut and saddle, diamond fretboard dots and 18:1 open back tuners. Jean's exciting new design means a fresh new sound that is sure to appeal to traditional and long-time Larriveé players alike.
This guitar is in the traditional OM body style, featuring a solid Sitka Spruce, solid Rosewood back and sides, maple binding, mahogany neck, ebony bridge and fretboard, bone nut, saddle, and bridge pins, and beautifully engraved open geared tuners. The satin finish on this guitar ensures a smooth and comfortable playing experience and an understated elegance, while also allowing even more resonance from the guitar. This guitar also includes a Larriveé hardshell case.
