Larrivée Guitars founder Jean Larrivée talks about working in his shop in a loft in Toronto in 1972, experimenting with aging guitars by turning on loudspeakers on the factory floor and aiming them directly at new guitars overnight. This is where he and his crew also refined the Larrivée bracing patterns and other details that are still present in Jean's guitars today.
