Has an employee and a player of Larrivee guitars I can say without a doubt that here in Canada we build the finest guitars with the best materials. I have worked at the shop for 6 years and have seen and heard some incredible guitars for all styles of music and technique. Our revamped parlor guitars and LR-3 models are my personal favourites. The innovative designs and technology that our company founder created is second to none. The Canadian competition can only offer a pale comparison to our product simply because Larrivee is in part the originator and stalwart of the Canadian Guitar business. All of us at the shop work very hard to produce the BEST guitars you can buy. You can not buy better unless you have the fortune to find a Luthier who can spend the time, money and expertise that we do and you will pay double or triple the price.
