Of course we don't know how it's been for you, but around here the last twenty years has flown by yet we all feel, and show, the effects. This Larrivee 12-string has fared extremely well in comparison over the same period, and of course a model like this made in Vancouver, B.C. hasn't been available for years. Fret wear is minimal, there are no cracks or serious dings, just a few small marks to the finish in a couple of spots, the kind you have to look to find. As you'd expect, our attention is drawn to the delicately engraved Griffin on the headstock but this 12-string is also easy to play with a big full sound, plus an active Fisman pickup if you need to plug in. Original case with Larrivee stencil on the lid is equally clean.
