Title: Larrivee Electrics Revisited - Any out there yet?
Post by: Mikeymac on April 10, 2008, 09:41:20 PM
I know the Larrivee electrics were supposed to start shipping around this time...anyone seen one yet?  Do Guitar Adoptions, Trinity - or any of the other Larrivee dealers who post here - have them yet? 

I also notice that the Larrivee electric website is still not fully developed/updated (even though it says on there that it will be done by February 8th). I'm just wondering if the guitars are following (slowly, dragging their feet) in the footsteps of the website...

...any news, anyone?

EDITED TO ADD: 

Okay, I did a little checking, and Guitar Adoptions has two: a cherry burst and a charcoal burst.  Both look very nice.  I'm going to have to go for a lefty charcoal burst, when finances allow...

Purely my subjective opinion, but the shape doesn't thrill me. Kind of like an LP that melted in the sun, and it doesn't look like it would be particularly comfortable to play when sitting.

I understand what you mean...  But I still kind of like it.  It has that contoured cutaway like a PRS, but a LP body shape...  If I ever run across a used lefty one (preferably the Tobacco burst), I might just pick one up.

I've had a chance to sit and strum one.  They're very comfortable sitting, and since they are much lighter than a LP, they feel better when standing...IMHO

Good to know, I may be too sensitized to this issue after having to return a Godin LG (bought it online, no local dealers) that seemed to constantly want to slide off my leg. I just compared photos of the two and the waist of the Larry looks quite a bit roomier than the Godin, which should definitely make a difference. Unfortunately, the cost of the Larry presents a much more formidable challenge!  :wink:

Pretty much looks like a Les Paul, alright, but you must have seen the Dali version. When I get mine, I'll let you know if I ever sit down.  ;)

Check out this thread.....

http://www.larriveeforum.com/smf/index.php?topic=20564.0

You can see one from the backside in the second picture.  You'll notice that there is no "indentation" in the bottom....just on the top.  Hence, it will NOT slide off of your leg when you're seated.  There is the indented cutaway on the top of the backside, and that makes it much more comfortable when playing seated. My LP feels like it is cutting into the area between my armpit and chest when I play it seated.  This is especially true if you are not only seated, but if you're leaning back on a couch and put your feet up...as I tend to do.  One other thing I really like is the fact that the back is the natural mahogany and not painted.
I didn't play one plugged in...but I listened to a couple of the Larrivee folks play, so I could watch and really hear the sound.  NICE.

WOW.   :drool:


Thanks Walkerman; somehow I'd missed that whole thread!  But now I'm more confused than ever; I was pretty sure my first one was going to be the Charcoal burst, then the Tobacco burst, but after seeing that Amber one that Matthew's holding...I may have to eventually have three of them! 

I didn't see any lefties in that first batch, but I know they're coming, because Dave at GA has a Tobacco burst on order in lefty...and said he could get any of the others if I was interested.

Larrivee really needs to get their electric website updated - they could add your pics, AND put on some soundfiles!

Actually, if you look at the picture of Matthew holding the body of the maple/mahog piece "ready to be cut for electronics"...just rough cut, you will notice that it is a lefty body.  You will also notice that he is standing in front of a stack of lefty bodies.

I have not been able to see one up close either, but to me, the shape simply looks exactly like a scaled down LV body. I'm certainly impressed with the electronics/pickups that have been chosen for them. Hopefully, they will put a version out with P90's and then I'll have to check one out!.  :thumb

Actually, you could easily swap out the Lollars and sell or trade them for the P90s. The Lollar Imperials sell for about $150.00 apiece and P90s for about $90.00.  A Dimarzio would probably do the job for $60.00. Personally, I want the Imperials.

Well, you're not going to be able to put P90's in a humbucker route (unless Bondo is invloved :bgrin:). However, a nice set of Fralin P92's or SD Phat Kats would get you in the ballpark! I agree, though, that you can't get much better than Lollar Imperials for classic PAF tone!

Another thing I've wondered about - maybe Walkerman knows - what do the "RS" and the "4" stand for (if anything)?  Did Matthew give any indication while you were there on the tour?

As best as I can tell, it's using a designation that they used in their 80's fling with electric guitars. Back then it designated a strat body with a neck through body design. So ... who knows? Rockslammer 4? Riffstrafer 4? 

Here's the site for the 80's beasts. You can see what used to be called an RS4. My LT1 Laricaster is there too.

Adding an after-market Bigsby to an LP-style guitar is pretty straightforward (my used LP came with one), but it does unfortunately put a couple of new holes in the guitar.

I'm a big fan of the Bigsby whammy, although they're a huge PITA to re-string, especially when you're first getting used to them.

There's a full page ad (BIG) in the June issue of Vintage Guitar player for the RS4...behind it is a Fender Super Reverb that looks very familiar - justlike the one in Walkerman's pics from his factory tour!

Good to see Larrivee pushing the new model - and it looks very good in the photo (the body doesn't look as oddly shaped as in some other pics), even though it's the cherry burst, which wouldn't be my first choice.

I am generally pretty accepting of new designs, and I really love all things Larrivee.  But this electric has a rather odd shape... Maybe I will grow into it.

I just think with the electric craze out there, Collings and (dare I say) Taylor electrics are much better looking or more innovative pieces (actually brings something new to the table).  Realistically, and "realistically" is the key word, if I am looking for a Les Paul like guitar, I will get a Les Paul.  Cheaper, better resale, looks better IMO.

I really hope Larrivee prove me wrong.  Because I am a loyal owner!!!

Calvin - Hard to go wrong with a good Les Paul. Here's why I prefer the idea of the Larrivée, however. Having owned an LP, I found it too heavy to play standing up. The RS4 comes in at a more reasonable strat-like 8 lbs. You won't get Jason Lollar imperials in the LP either. My 80's Larrivée electric has one of the nicest necks I've ever played. If the RS4 neck is what I believe it will be, it should more than rival an LP. Lastly, I don't understand the problems with its looks. Classic Gibson/PRS single cutaway design. It pretty much looks like a Les Paul. I'm dyng to get my hands on one!

Duck, I hope I grow into it too, in terms of looks.  You are certainly right about the components, TOP NOTCH, and that's something Gibson has really try to skimp on over the year, namely the lack of a proper inlaid logo, cheap tuners, no binding (unless you call that plastic dipped stuff binding)

I guess it's an electric with an acoustic setup. For sure, it's hard to find an 8lb LP out there, though I prefer a strat anyway.  Again, I hope Larrivee proves me wrong, I am just stuck on the looks a bit I guess.  I did hope that there was something more to the guitar than just a 2 HB setup.

A friend of mine's band played a White Stripes' song the other night with his '71 gold top and I was drooling. I have the strat already, would love a Les Paul-ish guitar (for players with less polish?) and would just love to hear what those Lollars will sound like under my fat little fingers.  :drool:

Have you played one of the new Taylor electrics (not the T5 hybrid, the new one)?  I played one a couple weeks ago, and the build was top notch, but the sound (this one had mini humbuckers and a 5 way switch) was anemic and bland.  There were no outstanding tones really.  I'm sure with more gain from the amp, or some pedals, you could get more oomph from the guitar, but to me, it was just missing "something."   

JMHO, so no offense to any Taylor owners here, but I didn't care for the tones at all (this was through a Reverb Deluxe Reissue)...and maybe the other models with different pickups sound different/better... 

I've personally adjusted "mentally" to the shape of the Larrivee, and can't wait to try one, because I'm sure the ergonomics are excellent.  The build quality (materials and workmanship) will obviously be top notch, and the tone should be excellent with the Lollars (getting ready to put a Lollar set in a Tele).

I played the new T at GC through a nice tube amp....  :yawn

Then a LP.... :bgrin:

But then again, Bob Taylor invented the perfect pickup, so now he is able to build electrics where he could not justify it before (think I am exagerating?  See the last Wood & Steel).

Considering the Collings are well in excess of $3500 new...a Larrivee seems to be the choice in "boutique-level" non-LP, non-strat, non-PRS electrics.

But I will roll with acoustics for now.


Title: Re: Larrivee Electrics Revisited - Any out there yet?
Post by: Calvin on April 17, 2008, 08:51:37 AM
I think the Taylor is meant to be a compromise.  Kind of like a BMW X5.  It drives like a sports car, goes offroad like a truck, and carries people like a hauler.  It's a great compromise, but if you really wanted a sports car, get a ferrari; an offroad truck, get a Jeep; a people hauler, get a Van.  You can't not admit that this is an innovative guitar.

As for Taylor acoustics, I am very blah about them.  I think there are a few standouts (512, 614, and maybe the 912).  The rest are very very blah tonally.  They do look gorgeous.

Calvin,  You're referring, I think, to the T5 "acoustic-electric" model that has been out for 2-3 years; I'm talking about the all new Taylor ELECTRIC ONLY guitars in my post above...we're talking about two different Taylor products...and, after playing one, it just didn't do anything for me.

All three clips on the website sound very good; would like to hear some neck sounds eventually, too!  (Especially since each tone control has a different capacitor on it.)

I'm antsy to order one of these, but I've got to sell at least two other guitars first (and I know which ones they are...)

I know that there are all the limits of the computer speakers, the recording system, etc., but I am surprised at how "unsurprising" the sound of the Larrivee electric is in your samples, Dave. I'm curious if you would like to offer any personal reflections on the sound. Given that this is Larrivee workmanship coupled with Lollar pickups, and played through a boutique amp, I was expecting it to sound, well, less like a typical humbucker in an everyday guitar. It didn't sound bad; it just didn't evoke any "wow!" in me. I heard that wow-factor the first time I heard a Larrivee acoustic, and I was hoping for something similar with the electric.

It's an electric guitar. The amp and settings are very important. Until I get one in my hands and play it through the amp of my choice, sound clips are merely interesting rather than very helpful.

I hear you, ducktrapper, I do.

However, there are rich sonic differences that seem basic to many electric guitars: the ES-335 will never sound like a Les Paul, nor will a Tele sound like a Strat, nor any of them like an ES-125. An SG will sound different depending on whether it has humbuckers or P-90s, but in either case, it still won't sound like a similarly equipped Tele or Lester. I think these are more than mere differences among the pick-ups. The whole package of the guitar itself shapes the sound. I guess I was assuming that I would hear a Larry sound that would stand out in some way.

I think you have to have the guitar "in person" as ducktrapper implied, before you can truly assess if it has its own personality.  There are a few tweaks that Larrivee has designed in that will certainly impact its sonic signature.  First, the body design, slimmer than a Les Paul with a very thick maple top.  Second, the 25.5" scale length on a set neck - that moves it away from LP territory.  Third, the choice of pickups and electronics.  All of these will move the Larrivee away from familiar territory and obvious "clone tones."

Also, I think it's difficult today to come up with something that sounds like a totally "new" sound on an electric, since there is already a pretty large variety of tones (you mentioned several in your post).  So the Larrivee may not seem totally unique...but don't we all put our own sonic imprint on anything we play anyway?  Don't we all pretty much cound like ourselves on various instruments (yeah, I know, the tones can be thicker or more jangly, but you know what I mean)?
