I have never seen a 14 fret 00 or 000 either but in a few months, I'll have one here!

To be honest, it seems really odd to me. The bridge gets moved twice (for the frets and for the scale), unless they change it to more of a Martin looking 000.

On a 00 it's not that unusual, and most of those are short scale anyway. The 000 is the one I'm trying to wrap my head around.

I did send a question/text to John asking if the -24 would be offered in 000 body, 12 fret.
Mostly cause I have not seen a 000 14 fretter, and cause Dave's Woodstock advert said 000-24.
I am not sure jigging the bridge for the short scale 000 is that big a deal. It is a small dimension, and probably would not affect the bridge plate, just guessing.
Or perhaps I am getting ahead of things.

OK, answer from John, "both the 00 and 000 will be 12 fret short scales".

That makes a lot more sense. Thx.

Me niether Mike, I don't think Larrivee has ever made 14 fret guitars in these sizes before.  They look to be similar to Martin 14 fret 00/000 guitars.  I was actually considering a Martin 00/000-18 but a 24 series will be much mmore affordable. 

They are making a short scale 00-40, I'm sure they could probably make is a short scale 000-40 if you asked them to?

I am sure Larrivee could make the 000-24, with certain mods, as a "forum" purchase.

Quote from: Denis on February 15, 2024, 01:01:00 PMHey guys,
  I'm just looking forward to a short scale.  The older I get, the harder it is to play those 25.5" scale guitars.

Hi Denis,
Yes indeed, my short scale OO is the easiest guitar I've ever played. I'm glad to hear of the new offering.

Can it get better than that? I may be selling guitars...which I loathe. Thanks for the info.

I think a 00 short scale is just what I'm wanting. Do they just move the bridge closer to the sound hole?

I wonder when these will start popping out? When will they update the website?

Are you thinking 00-24 or 00-40? I would imagine the bridge would be closer to the soundhole on the 24 than the 40. 

I don't see either of of these short scale guitars on their website.  The 40 series is up but they are all 25.5" scale.

John Jr told me they were going to start construction this week.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  If I get any build pics of mine, I will post them.

Well, if it is a 12-fret instrument, the bridge would be further from the sound hole then a 14-fret instrument regardless of scale length.

Assuming the sound hole stays in the same spot (which it may not) the bridge can move based on frets to body, and from scale length. A shorter scale brings the bridge closer to the sound hole.

I don't see a 24 (is that a model?) on their website. I see the 40. I'd be interested in an 00-03R or 00-40R, 12 fret with a short scale.

24 is this new series, 14 fret short scale 00/000. That's what I've got coming.  But yeah, I was considering the 00-40 short scale not too long ago.  Who knows, maybe I'll one those eventually?

Ah ok, thanks... yeah the 24 sounds great... 00-24R. I must have missed the first page.

I am waiting on a OO-03 with Cutaway and 14 fret to the body model. Ordered in Nov but have not heard anything yet.

You know that old saying, "Good things come to those who wait".

You're gonna love it. :wink:

Any word yet? I ordered recently and was told 4-6 months.
