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.
