This Larrivee OM-40 is a limited edition of only a handful, made with Koa back and sides and hand selected Alpine Moonwood for the soundboard, this guitar offers depth of tone, endless resonance with warmth on the lower end and a sparkly high end, everything you could ever desire in an acoustic guitar. The Moonwood Spruce is, as the name suggests harvested at a specific time of night and year, makiing this an extremely rare tonewood. Felled in a specific alpine region in Austria this wood grows at particular seal level height, and is harvested at a waning moon, when the moisture content is optimum, a practice which has been producing the world’s finest spruce for over 200 years.
In comparison with Sitka spruce, Moonwood has a tighter grain and pale yellow appearance and a high resistence to humidity changes.
Left handed model will shortly be available.
