Jean Larrivee Guitars is proud to announce a re-issue guitar as part of their 40th Anniversary celebrations. This new model—simply dubbed the "JCL"—is a replica of the first steel string guitars Jean Larrivee made in the 1970's.
The instrument's features have been meticulously recreated to produce a historically accurate instrument. The "JCL's" features include Larrivee's own proprietary pattern marquetry rosette, matching back strip and tail strip, original style rosewood and holly purflings, and the Mother of Pearl "JCL Logo" on the headstock. Even the label inside the instrument has been recreated and color-matched to match the original 1970's label.
The bracing of the instrument has also been hand shaped, where possible, to the original specifications. The hardware of the guitar is no less impressive as the headstock features traditional Schaller M6 Tuners. Each guitar comes with a black, alligator texture, Canadian-made case featuring dark green velvet interior with a shroud and a brass Larrivee name plate.
MSRP on the instrument is $4000 and orders will only be accepted until August 31th, 2007.
