Flamed maple back of a Larrivee P-09 FM parlor guitar

Larrivée Parlor Seeks Fingerstyle Player

Parlor-size guitars have a distinctive intimate voice that's very different from larger-bodied instruments. This US-made Larrivée P-09 FM is even more distinctive with its flamed maple back and sides.

Besides being beautiful, the maple construction gives it exceptionally clear tone.

Seventeen years old but hardly a mark on it, this guitar is looking for an appreciative fingerstyle player. More >>>

Interstate exit sign

We've Been Re-Numbered!

Massachusetts is renumbering all the exits on Interstate 495. We're no longer at Exit 30. We're in the same place, but now our exit is called Exit 79. Watch the signs carefully, don't miss us! (Thankfully, it looks like Google Maps knows about the numbering changes.)
