I guess we won't know since the listing has ended.

I'm still excited to read some first reviews of the 24 series. I'm mostly curious about how the L-24 will sound. I still hold my theory that it will sound like a superior Gibson j-45.

I love Larrivee, but I can't figure out the reasoning behind announcing a new series release without even a 30-60 second teaser clip to get people salivating.

I'm most keen to the LV model.  There was a big sale on various products recently here in canada at the big retailer and the J45 had $700 (Cdn) off the standard J45.  It was tempting but to me, I don't think I'd like the bridge spacing for fingerstyle.  Scale length, I can go back and fourth and don't really have a preference.  Also, nut width is slightly more narrow than Larrivee which again might not be as spacious for fingerstyle...so although the deal seemed good and I'm sure I'd have loved a J45 and saving some money...it seems better suited as a strummer...at least for my intentions.

Also, I think dreadnoughts feel somewhat obtuse playing in classical position while an L body is very classical in its bouts and proportion.

I think that Larrivee made the guitar people that want to like Gibsons never got...adrindack top, tulip tuners, 24.75 scale, and wider nut and bridge spacing.

Oh yeah, and you can get one without them force feeding you electronics.

Plus Larrivee hybrid scalloped bracing.

I'm slipping some hints to my wife about a new guitar because I really want an LV 24.  I think they built a better mousetrap.

My second Larrivee was an all mahogany 12 string LV03 and I bought it from Jim Holler (Trinity Guitars) who was both a luthier who built classical guitars and a wood engineer. I like the L body which Jim steered me toward as much as I like the dreadnought body but I have gravitated to smaller bodies over the past 15 years.


Thanks!!

And another 24 series Larrivee demo. This time an OM from Heart Breakers.

Great playing and great tones on both videos.  Thanks for sharing the links.

We sold our first D-24 Mahogany last week. The customer did a comparison between a D-03RW, L-03M and the 24. As he played, it was apparent to both of us that the D-24 Mahogany was the winner. It had a slightly bigger and more articulate sound than the other contestants. The feel is great and the craftsmanship is spot on.
The headstock is a true winner with the vine inlay and tulip tuners, making it look like a pricier guitar. Rosewood body binding is another unique feature that looks great.
We'll most likely be ordering another in the coming weeks.

It's a winner!

Thanks for the input. I'd like to get my hands on an L bodied version.
