Larrivee J-12  Acoustic 12 String 1996 Natural

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


I am selling my rare Larrivee J-12 Jumbo 12 string guitar (Serial #20723). This wonderful guitar was built in 1996 when Larrivee was doing some of their best work and Jean Larrivee was still heavily involved in handcrafting these amazing instruments. This is a remarkably clean example that has opened up very nicely. It touts a robust, full tone with more rich, low end than you might expect and crisp, clean highs. Essentially it's loud, full, and a joy to play! The guitar is setup perfectly with comfortable action and no fret buzz. Gorgeous Mahogany back/sides with a Spruce top that has matured and yellowed beautifully. The guitar boasts upgraded flamed Maple binding which is absolutely stunning! I was able to capture it well in several of the images. Minimal to no fretware, with no dings, noticeable scratches, or pick wear (outside of minor wear evident on the clear pick guard). The only issue with this guitar is that there is/was a 6in crack on the lower left bout of the guitar that can be seen in the photographs if dramatized in the light. The crack has been professional repaired by the best repair luthier we have in Dallas (humidity chamber, sealed crack, added cleats, etc etc). No pickup has been installed, in fact you'll note in one of the pics that the end pin hasn't even been drilled in! Original Larrivee hardshell case is included which is also in fantastic shape with minimal outerwear or extensive tarnish for being 21 years old! Don't miss an opportunity to snatch up a remarkably clean example of a golden era Larrivee!!
