The first time we got an OM-03 in our shop, I was just looking for a few more guitars to put in the mix that were more affordable than our usual selection. I'm a big fan of the mahogany Larrivee OMs, so this was a natural choice. And what a choice it was. This guitar is really lively, with great character and balance. Great playability and fit and finish are a given with Larrivee, but this one is just fun to pick up and play. It frankly caught us by surprise, and every one we've sold since then has been a winner.
Larrivee doesn't charge as much for their satin-finished guitars, but more than a few people prefer the look of satin finishes, anyway. Plus, I wonder if the lighter finish is a well-kept secret: I'm actually tempted to say that this guitar sounds better than the OM-05. Either way, it's a fine instrument—one of our very best under $1300—and a steal at this price.
