A great guitar

19.07.2016
I bought the larrivee om-03r looking for a size a little smaller than the D-40r larrivee (dreadnought size) that I have in order to be able to comfortably touch sitting on the couch. And the truth is that it fulfills perfectly with its mission, in addition to the great sound that characterizes larrivee.
The sound of the om-03r turns out to be more balanced than the one of the dreadnought although with a somewhat smaller volume and with less of bass (this also looked for when buying this guitar). Even so, the guitar maintains a good level of low frequencies. It is a delight the sound that characterizes the palosanto (rosewood call it here in thomann).
The smaller caliber of the strings (12) also makes it easier to play because I have small hands and fingers.
In the aesthetic aspect, the body bindings and the Canadian maple fingerboard as well as the guitar's own woods (sitka, palosanto, mahogany and ebony)
The price seems good for the quality of the instrument you get.
In short, a great acoustic guitar, comfortable to play, with a very balanced sound and a good price. It's worth it, I'm very happy with it.

Best Hlzer - no BlingBling

Johannes R. 630, 07.10.2015
The recording series from Larrivee is characterized by the fact that no costly details are dispensed with, but the best quality tones are processed to an excellent instrument. Larrivee goes a different way than some other Edelhersteller, with which one gets eg handleboards from "Micarta" - thus plastic - in order to push the price. Larrivee also renounces production to China - the OM-03R is made in the USA!

The simple, timeless look of this guitar is, in my opinion, just a strong buying argument. The matte lacquer is just as good as the high gloss. On the contrary, the guitar is particularly appealing to me and looks somehow correct for manufactory and craftsmanship.
The processed wood is of good quality, although I have seen even more evenly rosewood. The handlewood (ebony!) Is however beautifully dark and extremely fine-pored.
The processing is top! I really did not find anything that would have bothered me - and I'm really picky!

Now to the most important: the sound of the OM-03R can be described in a word: balanced. This guitar makes all frequencies wonderful. She has rich basses (which I had not expected), very nice, soft heights and appears in the middle pleasantly proportioned. Although its absolute strength is surely fingerpicking, it is also surprisingly good for strumming.
What I particularly like is the fast response of the guitar. This is probably due mainly to the typical Larrivee bracing. In contrast to the Martin OM 28 and also the OM-40R from the own house, where Larrivee first tried a new bracing, it has a slightly smaller volume, but a faster and clearer response with more compression. This is just for the fingerpicker and is good for me also the reason why I put it in the direct comparison of the 40R.

Conclusion: The Larrivee Om-03R is a perfectly matched fingerpicking guitar from a noble home at a fair price. If you are looking for an instrument with a "special character" and / or a high volume, you might not appreciate it - everyone else will love it!
