Title: trying to figure out what model I bought
Post by: old man on November 10, 2017, 03:25:07 AM
bought "2015 000-40 LMS"  serial #129977   Larrivee website says mfg date was Jun 13, 2016   model is SO-40 Mahogany.  It has electric pickup but I don't think it is factory, just place to plug in amp in base, I see wires attached to bridge on inside and it works.....

love the guitar, just trying to figure out what model it really is........
any feedback appreciated

Sounds like a mixup in the database.

Shoot some nice photos of the front, back, sides, head stock, label and post them up!

Oh yeah!  Welcome!    :wave

Thanks for the donut!

I wonder if LMS stands for Long McQuade Special?

I bought my 04 from Long and McQuade and it was listed as D-04W VHS (VHS indicated it had the vine headstock inlay).

The Larrivee database lists it as an SO-40 Mahogany.  I have never heard Larrivee use the "SO" designation..

 :welcome: to our nuthouse, it is a fun place...

I do remember one of the Larrivees told us a bit about the SO model.
     Something about there model number system required them to come up with it.

    But I think it's a OOO. Which is the letter O, not the number 0. We need some pix.

The listing at Elderly is MLS not LMS

A LS in mahogany?  I have one and consider it very close to 000 size.

An SO is simply another designation of a OOO. I remember John explained that to us one time. Something about computer nomenclature.

Yup, that's what I was thinking.

My best guess would be 000 Mahogany Large Soundhole.

I just saw the pix and listing. It's just a OOO-40 LEGACY with a mahogany top.
   It says scalloped bracing in the specs.
