  1. Just `googled` from Germanny to this lovely place by searching if I´m the only one playing a Larrivée 6-string with Bartolini pickups. No single information available at larivee.com. The bass sounds like this: http://lombog.com

    Well, this seems to be a well rockin´ forum!!
    Keep on!

    Welcome to TB!

    I had no idea Larrivée made a bass! I've always been impressed with their acoustic guitars.

    Tell us more! I assume it's an ABG?

    they used to make electric also.
    I've seen a fretless 6 with a miror fingerboard...
    sustain for days!!
     
  4. Yeah they did, but they sucked big time IMHO. My buddy used one back in the mid 80s until the neck warped. I always found it to be yet another bland mid 80s EMG equipped P/J with an overly chunky neck and a pointy headstock (like a superstrat of the period). They stopped making them for a reason. Their hearts were elsewhere I guess. My girlfriend's Larivee acoustic guitar is a wonderful thing on the other hand.
