This LV-03E is a beautifully balanced cut-away electro acoustic guitar, and the Stagepro Element preamp system. It features a lovely Sitka Spruce top, and Mahogany back and sides which produce a complex, pronounced and even tone. Larrivee’s tried and true balanced X-Brace system results in 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 dynamic bass response.
The Stagepro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions.
Larrivee prides itself on being plugged in to the entire process of producing a finished, hand-made guitar, from log selection on the forest floor to final quality control in their Oxnard, California workshop. Hand selection of the woods has ensured that the top, back and sides perform optimally together. Top it all off with a satin finish neck, a tortoiseshell guard, and classic dot inlays and you have yourself a legacy piece that will last generations.
