This Larrivee was custom ordered with a Koa top and Koa back & sides, making it quite a unique SD-40! Other model specifications include a scalloped hybrid bracing pattern, 12 fret neck construction, ebony bridge & fingerboard, bone nut & saddle, and a satin finish. The guitar was also custom appointed with a 1 11/16" nut width and no pickguard. The guitar isn't quite as bright as you might expect from Koa (perhaps due to the 12 fret neck joint); it has a nice woody tone with excellent playability. Comes in the original hardshell case.
