This is my second one. It's a case of the classic, "Why did I ever sell that thing?". I had one a few years ago but a friend pestered me for it until I let it go in a moment of weakness. My reasoning was that I had my Taylor 614CE so why keep both around. I love the 614 but it doesn't sound that same as the rosewood LV-03 RE. The rosewood is hard to beat for depth, richness and sustain and the workmanship is impeccable. It responds beautifully to fingerpicking or picks. So ... I now have a LV-03 RE again. This one is here to stay. Over 50 years of playing I've had a pile of guitars, including a J-45, D-28 and even one I made from scratch but this one is home base for me. Top quality without the cost of gloss and inlays. I do about 50 gigs a year and this is a good working musician's guitar.

Well I've had this guitar 6 months now and all I can say is AWESOME..I've gone over this guitar inch by inch not one flaw..I've owned 20 or so accustic guitars but none as perfect in construction or sound as this one..I also have a Taylor 414ce also a beautiful guitar but it's no larrivee...if I do gave one negative it's when I got it the action was terrible and had to file down the saddle but other then that AWESOME !!

Bought my used LV-03RE a year ago and still love playing it. I also have a Taylor 314-CE, and they are both fantastic guitars. Neck action on the Taylor is so smooth it almost plays itself, but the Larrivee has such a wonderful balanced tone....it blends the sound in a way that's hard to describe. Both are excellent guitars.

I've owned this guitar since 2010 and is still the best instrument I've played in the price range. I shopped around for months, but the second I played this guitar I had to have it. It's comfortable to play, the tone is balanced, and the projection is phonominal.

I was shopping around to upgrade my acoustic. Had been looking at many guitars in this price range when I came across this one. The quality and sound is the best to my ears. Very balanced and pleasing tone. I get many compliments on the sound of this guitar. Sounds fantastic unplugged or plugged in. If I where in the market again Larrivee would be my first pick.

I've owned this guitar for about 6 years now and it never ceases to impress me. Like many others, when it came time to buy a high quality acoustic guitar, I was thinking about a Taylor, Martin, etc. and immediately dismissed the Larrivee. The owner of the guitar shop played this guitar for me and I was blown away at the sound! You will not be disappointed.

This guitar sounds amazing. It is very loud, comparable to the loudest I have heard. Sound quality is outstanding and very balanced across the range - mesmerizing at lower half. Electronic works fantastic with even low quality amps or if plugged directly into mixer. There is no pro stage where you would be afraid to play it.

The sound coming out this guitar is what will first attract you to a Larrivee but you'll soon find they are built beautifully. Well balanced and easy to play. Simply put Larrivee puts out guitars that can match up to the expensive Martin or Taylor. One of the best guitars for the money.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
