Quote from: J M Larrivée on November 15, 2021, 02:31:49 PMHi Folks,I have included tracking sheets with your names on them so you can see what your serial numbers are. I have cut off last names for privacy reasons. There should be enough for you all to figure things out. Everything is moving along, for the most part, with a few stragglers. This is normal. Sometimes things need to go back a step for rework etc. All acoustics currently are set up with D'Addario EXP16 12-53's. With the exception of Parlors, 0's, and the Travel T guitars, they are all set up with EXP17 13-56's for maximum tone on those little bodies. A big shout out to Mike for facilitating everything with you folks. He is doing a great job behind the scenes. You are all in good hands. Matthew is doing a great job keeping things moving along. While all guitars coming through production are important, The Forum VI's are getting a little extra attention. I can see you are all enjoying the photos. If you are not aware, they are being taken by Jean when he is out and about on the shop floor and sees a bunch of them together. I've asked him to get some of the staff in there working on them as well. When all is said and done, I can do a WeTransfer or DropBox with all the images in one file at anyone's request. All the best...

Quote from: Frasier1 on November 17, 2021, 01:52:51 AMI want to thank the whole Larrivee family and workers for this opportunity. I pulled out my F-IV tonightand the smell still reminds me of the day of the day I first got it, and it's voice is even more gorgeous!!
Quote from: mike in lytle on November 17, 2021, 07:17:10 PMUpdate - Pickups (Order Amendments)John asked me to let you know....If there is ANYONE who want to add pickups to their guitar order, your last chance is now.This will not apply to anyone who has already notified John about pickups, but "time to completion" is running out and unless you notify John about adding a pickup, your time is short and you must inform John immediately. Changes will not be honored unless received this weekend.I cannot send a mass PM to everyone who has ordered a Forum VI, so this is the best I can do.Mike
Quote from: jwdecour on November 18, 2021, 11:32:33 AMI am on stand by for one of the four extras. I have not heard anything from Larrivee yet. I imagine they will get out the 16 original orders and make sure they all land to their new homes safely before they will start to work through the extra ones, but I could be wrong. It has been fun to watch the build and to see the ending of the process getting closer. I don't know about everyone else but I have been checking on here for updates a few times every day.
Quote from: mike in lytle on November 18, 2021, 01:10:14 PMJohn,I am guessing you won't hear from Larrivee for a little while.I am also "hoping" Dennis and Matt are checking for updates here as well.In order, the list is #1 yourself (John), #2 Dennis, and #3 Matt.Welcome to the club!!!And you are right, we have 16 original orders. I thought we had 15.Out of a run of 20, 19 were made because Larrivee lacked one last set of nice walnut.There is info for the waiting list folks (all 3 of you so far), I will share the following from John....1. There is one (1) LS and two (2) LSV potentially as extras right now.2. Current orders get priority over the waiting list if Larrivee loses a guitar in production.Now if Larrivee "loses" a guitar in production, it could mean that particular production guitar could be sold as B stock.I doubt Larrivee is going to lose any guitars in production.I don't know when the F-VI guitars will be completed, I think we will all find out at the same time.Mike
