1934 Gibson L-5
Fretboard Journal editor Marc Greilsamer turns in an in-depth (nearly 20 page long) profile of acoustic (and now electric) guitar pioneer Jean Larrivée. Larrivée's story starts in Montreal, Canada and works its way to Vancouver, Southern California and the wilds of India, China and elsewhere. It's safe to say that if Jean Larrivée isn't building a guitar, he's on his way to some exotic locale where he can find new wood for more guitars. New photos by Branden Aroyan show the Larrivée factory in Oxnard, California.
