Quote from: es-335 on November 30, 2008, 08:57:27 PMJust to throw it out there... is anybody up for having no bindings like the older satin parlors??(is it possible?)
Quote from: rpm60912 on November 30, 2008, 10:10:44 PMHere's a short one... please react or vote.I happen to be a Gloss finish fan. I think guitars costing 1000+ should all come glossy - standard !!! (If satin finish really improves the sound quality of the git, I wonder how many will still prefer the satin finish over a gloss finish - if prices were the SAME?) Please remember, I've been influenced by long-time Larri owners in this Forum - to favor satin and no bling, so if I'm muddying the discussion - someone tell me to shut up.So far... satin is the prevailing pleasure of interested buyers.Gloss finish anyone?ricky

Quote from: Dotneck on November 30, 2008, 10:39:48 PMHow can anybody be solid without knowing what model specs and pricepoint? To be realistic this is just another thread on an internet forum until you get a dealer and Larrivee on board. Last one took a year to put together.....don't get too excited too quickly.

I'll commit cash to that.Summary must haves for myself: - LS body- Spruce top- 1 3/4 nut- $2000 or less pleaseSummary of preferences but not dealbreakers:- Rosewood B&S or a suitably wide-ranged alternative (inexpensive) exotic wood- No cutaway- Satin Finish- Wood Binding (any)- 12 fret with short scale- No excessive bling- Customized logos and labels sound great (not picky as to what)- Rosewood (or exotic wood) overlay on headstockI hope this makes it easier to chart Ricky.
