Title: Question on L-03R and 40R
Post by: guitarboy88 on February 02, 2018, 07:41:45 PM
Hi Newbie here.

Currently I play a Martin D- 16H and am considering Larrievee L03R or L40R. I bought the D-16 new 25 years ago Hog sides and back spruce top scalloped forward x bracing.  At the time of purchase they were considered the closest you can get to a vintage D-18 without the High$$$.   What are the tonal and sonic differences between Maryin and Larrivee? How does the x bracing on the 03 differ from the parabolic bracing on the 40?

Thanks in advance!
