FACTOIDS & TRIVIA

Jean Larrivee's guitar company has been producing steel string acoustic guitars since 1971.  Most Larrivee guitars are influenced by European designs, but some of the models have been inspired by traditional Martin flat top guitars, but with an Jean Larrivee's own design ideas.  The Model 000-50 is part of Larrivee's Traditional series guitars that were introduced in 2002.  Accordingly, it takes its design cues from the 12-fret Martin 000-18 of the late 1920s and early 1930s.  Like most 12-fret guitars, this Larrivee has an open sound with excellent balance and clarity.  It is equally good for fingerstyle or flat picking.
