Larrivee's 40-series guitars have quickly become some of their bestsellers, and for good reason: With a throwback aesthetic (square headstock, open-back tuners), and an extra dose of bass to fill out the balanced Larrivee tone, they add a welcome element to an already-successful Larrivee lineup.
What is perhaps most amazing about the 40-series guitars is the price—most builders who design new, custom guitars charge substantially more for them, especially when they feature new bracing and a bone nut and saddle like these guitars. But the D-40R comes in hundreds of dollars less than the D-09, which makes it a real steal.
