This is an original CBC documentary created in 1983 and was shot on location at Larrivée Guitars first West Coast shop on Esquimalt Road, Victoria, BC. This video has been relatively unseen and hidden away for nearly 35 years. What is interesting is that many of the processes you will see in this video remain relatively unchanged for nearly 35 years. Sit back and enjoy this half hour doc and listen to a young Jean Larrivée narrate his passion and his vision in the early days of modern guitar building.
