Brand spanking new from Larrivee, the reintroduced P-02 guitar!
The tone from this little beauty is incredible - and with an RRP at just £999 it's the bargain of the year.
Billed as a no-frills guitar, this still boasts a beautifully bound body and fretboard (wood binding, not plastic) just as on -03 range models, ebony fretboard and bridge, is made in the USA of all-solid timbers AND has a fitted Larrivee hard case!
As Larrivee say:
"The -02 Series is built in the same Californian factory as the rest of the highly acclaimed Larrivée Guitars product line. The all-solid wood construction features solid Canadian Sitka Spruce tops and solid African Sapele back and sides.
The impressive specifications of the -02 Series also includes a handfit dove-tail neck joint, Canadian Maple body binding, multi line rosette with Canadian maple, Ebony fingerboard, Ebony bridge, rounded Larrivee headstock with Ebony cap, chrome tuners (18:1 ratio) and traditional Larrivée tortoise style pickguard.
The nut and saddle are bone. Compared to previous 02 models, the reintroduced -02 Series now features even higher-end features including Scalloped Parabollic Austrian Spruce top bracing and a one-piece mahogany neck.
The -02 offers the same hand-build processes and solid wood construction as our standard line', says company founder Jean Larrivée. 'With its pro-sound solid sitka spruce top, the resonance and balanced sonic qualities of the -02 will only improve with age."
It also plays and sounds superb - like a much bigger-bodied guitar. Simple looks but quality construction and components make this a brilliant value instrument.
