Larrivee DV-03RE, The all solid Indian Rosewood Dreadnought Cut-away (Special Edition) of Larrivee acoustic guitar with upgraded Larrivee brand hard-case. Solid Sitka Spruce top, upgraded herringbone rosette, single piece South American Mahogany neck, neck white binding, mapple body binding & Larrivee chrome head-machines (see the pictures). This special edition model will set you apart from the crowd as normally only the L-body made with cut-away version (the LV) BUT we know our market that some of us can’t live without Dreadnought cutaway, our say : get the DV-03RE. It comes with the latest Shadow Nanoflex (pentented) pickup with a tiny & super light weight built remote volume/tone controller neatly mounted behind the sound-hole. The pre-amp unit is mounted directly after female jack, hence suppressing any noise but delivers the natural acoustic tones as it is.
The D-03RE offers the same quality like D-03R which are richer harmonics of sound, balance and loud acoustic guitar makes this model one of the very famous Larrivee model for serious guitar players. There are clear differences between the rosewood and the mahogay models which you may be able to justify for its price tag, it is the starting model of 'a serious ones', available for testing at Luthier Guitar Centre all outlets.
Step into the Larrivee line with the -03 series model. Manufactured in Larrivee Vancouver plant, these guitars have many features in common with our higher end models. The -03 series is constructed of all solid wood: Sitka spruce sound-board, single piece mahogany neck, ebony fretboard and bridge.

About the Shadow Nanoflex pick-up & integrated pre-amp.
(as quoted from
With the invention of innovative Nanoflex technology, Shadow has launched another significant and successful phase in the history of sound amplification, which dates back to the 1930’s, when a wire was first coiled around a magnetic spool. Thus began the history of the electromagnetic pickup.

Nanoflex (NFX) is a name derived from the unit of measurement prefix “nano” and the word “flexible.” The name is quite fitting, since all the high-definition pickups of the NFX family are extremely thin and possess a great degree of flexibility. As a result, they conform closely to the surface of the instrument.

The Structure and Sound of Nanoflex Pickups : The Nanoflex pickup’s sensor consists of seven flexible layers of carefully selected materials. With extreme precision, these special strata pick up the pressure of the nut, which conveys string vibration, while simultaneously sensing the vibratory movements of the guitar’s surface as well.
The DV-03RE traits
The drednought shape is the most popular acoustic guitar among others, lower bout is 40.2 CM, upper bout is 30 CM, body thickness = 12.2 CM.
With this size & the symmetrical bracing Larrivee dreadnought guitar, it delivers full harmonic of sound almost equally well from low to higher pitches. The low bass is the deep & powerful if compare to other smaller shapes, crisp mid-tones, sweet & deep trebles as the result of the very refine sitka spruce top & large body cavity help producing massive acoustic wave propagation when you strum/pluck the strings. The Larrivee DV-03RE Dreadnought cut-away acoustic guitars is for serious guitar stage performers.
Please check our pictures, this guitar has perfect workmanship, the herringbone rosette & mapple binding, elegant solid Indian Rosewood back/side which contrast with the light mapple bindings and it has the ebony fretboard & bridge. You will amaze with it's value for money status, it is a must for serious players.
About the DV-03RE strings
When open from the box, the factory had stringed it with D'Addario EXP16 as the standard strings. However, option are available especially if you want to try it with the Cleartone Phosphor Bronze Light gauge or the Bluegrass gauge. Cleartone has the thinnest coated strings which deliver richer & bigger volume to your guitars.
