Jean Larrivee.BW.jpgToday, Larrivée is a new generation of talented guitar makers, building instruments as extraordinary and unique as the people who craft them. We are inspired by the passion and guided by the lifetime of experiences of our leader, Jean Larrivée, whose legendary craftsmanship still finds its way into every guitar that bears his name.

Our guitars are built with only the finest solid woods available – no plys, laminates, or synthetic woods are ever used in construction. We use FSC wood and engage in as much selective logging as possible. This means we like to be there, in the forest, personally taking part. Imagine, when we begin to create your instrument, we begin on the forest floor.

Above all, our goal is “affordable luxury.” We aim to put high-end guitars into the hands of all players. We don't want to build the most guitars. We just want to build the best.
