Larrivee Parlor P03 African Zebrano (Special Edition)

I'm bought a couple different guitars to try different styles and discover what suited me. I have discovered my fat fingers prefer a wider nut and 2 5/16 string spacing. Consequently, I have an as-new Larrivee P03 African Zebrano (aka zebrawood) Special Edition with blank warranty card. It's a shame, because I really like the 24" scale and the tone on this beauty. Like most parlors, it has a 12-fret join (17 total) to put the bridge in the sweet spot.

This 24" scale parlor has a natural, satin finish and features a Canadian sitka spruce top and bracing, symmetrical parabolic X bracing, inlaid herringbone rosette, and gorgeous African zebrano back and sides, Canadian maple binding, African ebony fingerboard on a mahogany neck. Precision turning with chrome 16:1 tuners. Width at the nut is 1 3/4”. Includes original, nice hardshell case.

It literally has less than 60 minutes of playing time. I paid $1,650 USD including import duties in June. Will sell for $1,250 shipped CONUS. I will ship elsewhere with buyer paying difference in shipping costs.

Ukulele Eddie is a great guy to buy from. He knows his instruments and is open, candid and reliable. I have bought a uke in the past from him. If I only I needed a guitar I would have bought this..

I used to have the Mahogany version of this guitar. These are great parlour guitars!

Thanks, @kernaltime! I enjoyed getting to know you through our transaction!

Thanks, @hollisdwyer. The 24" scale is a great scale for a uke player to step into.

I have a couple inquiries but it's still available at the moment.

That Canadian binding is nice, but it tends to get sticky as spring - and maple syrup time - approaches. :D

If I played the guitar, I'd be tempted. That's beautiful.
