The earliest Dreadnought body guitars appeared around 1916, built by Martin for the Ditson company. This Larrivee SD-60 SH Traditional Dreadnought is heavily influenced by that body style, which tends to be long with a wide waist.
The original Ditson dreadnoughts had many of the features found here on the Larrivee SD-60. The top is Spruce, the body Indian Rosewood, the neck is Mahoganay and Ebony is used for the fingerboard and pyramid-style bridge. As an SH model, the head stock is slotted and the top purfling is herringbone. The 12-fret neck puts the bridge further back towards the vibrating center of the top. The scale length is 25.5 inches and the nut width is 1 7/8 inches. The rosette is abalone and a Fishman pickup system is installed.
Built diring 2004, this Larrivee SD-60 SH Traditional dreadnought is in very good condition with light play wear on the top. The original hardshell case is included.
