best ever guitar!
 Was with Danial Lanois last night and the night before.
 he plays an old Gold Top les paul, similar to what I once owned.
 P'90's with Bigbsy.

My Larrivee gold top is so much better than the other brand ( despite vintage status etc).

I am not a big fan of white plastic pickup covers.

So is it the white or is it the plastic you are not a fan of?

Those covers are actually gold plated metal covers, but I had jean shoot that colour on them to make them look white plastic (vintage 1953) :cheers

Hey Headsup,

Did you put the Bigbsy on?  Could you order them that way?

I like the soap bar covers that are cream.

Yep, Gold tops and P90s just seem to go together.  :nice guitar:

Hi George,
 that guitar has a bit of history.
I bought it from GC in Oxnard (online).
 There was a problem with the transaction and I freaked, so i called the Larrivee folks for help.

 Matt answered the call, I explained what was going on.
 He said he knew the guitar very well, an employee made it for himself, and there was only 2 made.
 I got it just as you see it.
It's my main gigging guitar when I'm a "hired gun".

 here's a pic of an early Matt RS4 (jan/04) with an eighties Jean RS4.
 both have some serious flame maple going on (difficult to catch in pics)

I know where there's a brand new, old gold top RS4 hanging on the wall for sale. Wish I had the dough. But then I already have an amber one. Best color, in my humble opinion.   :whistling:

Could it be Matt RS4 (Jan/08) instead

Are you sure that "Matt RS4" is from 04? I didn't think they started making this new series until around '08 or '09? Forgive me if I'm wrong on this...  :?

No, iím not the owner, I have a rs4 lefty and mine has 30/01/2008 as productiondate, #100112. I think somewhere in the past iíve looked up the serialnumber of your guitar and remembered she had the same productiondate.
