The natural one or the Shoreline gold one?  Both are very nice guitars...  :nanadance

I have never tried the Larrivee single coil pickups other than their P90's.  One of these has three single coils and the other has a humbucker in the bridge.  I would be interested in hearing experiences of others with these models of Larrivee...

I don't know about Larrivee's Strat single coils, but their Tele bridge single coil is excellent. I had a Bakersfield that originally came with the Seymour Duncan in the bridge - an excellent pickup. I later had a Larrivee bridge pup installed - and it was as good as the SD. A slightly different tone, but just as good for all flavors of clean or driven tones. I suspect the Strat pups are similar.

As I recall, the "difference" in tone wasn't really in tone, it was more in output. The SD had slightly more output than the Larrivee - you could say the Larry was a little more vintage output, the SD slightly higher, but not by much. Otherwise, they had very similar eq characteristics. Both very good "Tele" pickups.

I've changed the name of the topic so I don't have to create a new topic every time I see a guitar for sale that some of you are looking for. I don't know if I can put these advertises here without getting problems with it. I just would like to help some folks to get their guitar of their dreams. Maybe I can make somebody happy when I share the guitars that i find on the net.

That's a beauty... if it stays on Reverb until after Christmas or Jan. 1 I might make an offer on it. (My b-day is Jan. 4th.)  :smile:
