Superb orchestral model guitar

Charles9750, 16.02.2015
The Larrivée OM-40E is a small bodied guitar that looks slightly plain, until you strum a chord on it. I only say plain because it doesn't shine like a nitro finish guitar, but is still very attractive. The case is also highly attractive with the same high standard of workmanship.

This guitar sounds brilliant when recording and also has a great sound when plugged in. When I play it at acoustic nights people always comment on the quality of sound, whether or not it is plugged in. The pick-up system is well hidden with 2 simple dial controls on the edge of the acoustic hole. With a smaller size body the sound is slightly muted when compared to a super jumbo or a dreadnaught. Also, in comparison it also has less bass, but still very well balanced for a small bodied guitar.

String action is very low with the strings set at 2mm above the frets at the twelve fret. This makes the guitar very easy to play and especially on the higher frets. Harmonics are surprisingly easy with the action being very low. Nut width is also quite wide at 1.75 inch, which also helps when finger picking difficult pieces of music. If you have large hands you wont fluff any of the notes down by the nut end.

The OM-40E is very versatile and sounds great strummed, finger picked or just played with a plectrum. It also has a big advantage over the basic model with being an electro-acoustic. This guitar is a great all rounder and suitable for live performance and recording.

This guitar is new, but should be way more popular than it is. I'm hard to please, but I can't fault it.
