Title: Forum III ; #34 Italian/Mahogany
Post by: AZLiberty on January 17, 2018, 02:49:46 AM
Down the road I may regret this, but we have six Larrivees in the house and I never play the Forum III.

I play my OM-03R ten times as often, I play my Parlor at least a hundred times as often.  I've decided I am really not a fan of Italian spruce, sounds too much like Adirondack for my taste.  Too much punch and clarity.

$1000

Trade straight across for a Forum IV if anyone wanted to do so.  Would also be interested in an OM-40W (pre-October)

Otherwise I'm using the funds towards a Halcyon.

Previous owner swapped out the tuners to Gotoh 510s.  Cosmo black with ivoroid buttons.  
Previous owner also added a strap button at the heel on the treble side  (IMHO the correct location)
Clear pickguard.  Tort guard and TR wrench included of course.  Pics show boxwood pins but I have swapped the originals back in.

I have one, and love it.  Good sound, nice neck, great set up, subtle appearance.  (I have a 1982 Seagull with the satin finish.  That finish held up to daily playing for 2o years before it started so show real wear,  I've become a believer in the satin finish.)  I think these are really good value; modestly priced, high performance.
