Can anyone tell me if GC correctly listed the model number for this Larrivee D-40? I've purchased it sight unseen given their return policy but I can't match the numbers to anything.
Thanks!
John

The MQ is likely GC's acronym for Quilted Mahogany, at least that is what the back looks like?  I have no idea what DX stands for unless it might be Deluxe?  Just my best guesses...  Whomever writes the GC verbage has often gotten the manufacturer's model designations all down incorrectly...

Yeah, looks like a D-40. Should be a fine instrument.

Hi John, I actually watched this guitar for quite some time but never pulled the trigger on it but noticed a few days ago it sold!
I can't find it now, but I got the serial number from GC and sent it to Larrivee and they confirmed it was a D-40, but said the DX wasn't something they used and that GC must have added that info.

If for some reason you decide to return it, shoot me a message before you do so we can talk about it. I'm still on the hunt for a dread of some sort.

Maybe dx refers to electronics.

Thanks all for the info, when it arrives I will post some pic's and the actual serial#. Fishstick, I will let you know what I decide to do...actually looking at an older OM-03 this weekend and really can only keep one.

GC has it in the Pasadena store but buyer beware.....it has a 4" crack on the back. Fixable but not at that price btw the currently listed price is what I had originally paid so not even a mark down for the crack.
