Larrivée's SD-40 provides an excellent option for savvy pickers who want a high-end, American dreadnaught guitar with a premium placed on sound quality and hand-built, expert craftsmanship. With a big, crisp sound replete with midrange and a balanced tonal response, this 12-fret slope shoulder has a roar that makes it one of our favorite guitars for solo flatpickers, country strummers, and beyond. The SD-40 seems to shine wherever you put it, and its classic Sitka spruce and tropical mahogany construction means that its tone reflects nicely against all voice types. Larrivée prioritize quality of construction and sound over visual appointments, but maple binding and rope inlays give the guitar a look that's both modern, as well as reminiscent of great country and western dreadnaughts of years past. Included in the price is a hard-shell case.
