Comments about Larrivee L-03R Rosewood Standard Series Acoustic Guitar:
The guys at Guitar Center Phoenix brought in a Larrivee L-03R for me. My first impression was the case, a beautiful five-latch, semi-dome top that fit the L body like a glove. The guitar itself was impeccable, no flaws to be found on first or subsequent inspections except for a slight, tiny rough spot in the finish just south of the pick guard. The spruce grain is tight, uniform, and deep, and the rosewood is lush and dark, almost purple in the right light. I did need to immediately change the strings, put on the recommended D'Addario J-16s. Factory action was fine, low enough to play like butter without buzzing, won't need tweaking until time for regular maintenance. The sound is amazing... rings like a bell, well-balanced from bottom through middle to top range. Tone is completely unique in my experience, a clarity and balance and sustain I've not heard before. Picks easy, capos well all the way up. Been playing it for several weeks now. This is destined to be my workhorse guitar. The tone just makes me smile.
