Quote from: Mikeymac on May 08, 2021, 04:17:51 PMIt might help to get clarity from John Jr. (or a Larrivee dealer) how much variation there could be on the instrument's specs... we've already got people mentioning several different top, back & sides woods, along with at least two folks asking for a cutaway.
Quote from: Strings4Him on May 08, 2021, 06:30:55 PMI have an interest. Thanks Mike.

Quote from: Strings4Him on May 08, 2021, 07:56:12 PMSpruce top with walnut b&s, RH. I am also open to other woods for top and b&s. Thanks.
Quote from: jazzereh on May 09, 2021, 07:11:58 AMI am torn on this. But I'll note my interest as a YESIf I were to go on this I'm good with the LS 03 specs, RH, no cutaway. B&S walnut [I need something different than what I have] and while I'd go for a spruce top, it would be good to have another choice and I'd prefer satin finish. 12 fret would be best. And, no electronics.Here's my dilemma - I've been looking for another Larrivee but I focus on builds done in Canada, so a used guitar at this point - all my guitars, Larrivee and others, are Canadian builds. If I were to go with this as a new build, not done in Canada, it would need to be something that really appealed to me.

Quote from: Will V. on May 09, 2021, 01:11:12 PMJust to reiterate/refine what I posted in the other thread.Yes, I am interested in a Forum guitar. My .02, the idea is to produce an uncommon guitar of moderate cost:LS or OM bodyVenetian cutaway or at least the optionSpruce topMaple back and sides, unfigured if it helps keep cost down!Satin finish, or gloss top with satin back and sidesMinimal or no abalonePerhaps a Forum guitar specific inlay on the headstock, but something modestClear pickguard!
Quote from: Bard on May 09, 2021, 05:40:09 PMDo we really need another thread for this? How about we see what John Jr. has in mind?Although, I appreciate the enthusiasm!
Quote from: mattwood on May 09, 2021, 08:20:37 PMI'm interested depending on what the tonewoods end up being. A 12 fret would be a definite plus and 03 trim level is fine by me. I'm assuming that the back and sides would be different than before, so walnut or maple seems interesting, but I'm wondering if there are others that might work and not be overly expensive. I wonder if the 40 series bracing is possible as well.
