I'm sure you have done your homework but just for clarification purposes the Larrivée L is a bit bigger than the Taylor Grand Concert.  It is closer in size the the Taylor Grand Acoustic (GA) size.

I was surprised that no one mentioned the Larrivée Parlor.  I don't know because I haven't played one but wondered, Is it close to the size of the GS mini you said you played?  Even tho I haven't played one, I've never read anything but rave reviews about the parlor size.

Zoom 2.1 Nu...have used it only modeling with my Strat.
My guitar tech is anything but a hater.  He must have had prior experience with these systems not pushing bass, or popping the treble till it overwhelms.  On AGF, a lot of positive comments can be found about B band, but also the occasional defect or sound nightmare.  Supposedly the company stands behind its products and has good customer service...is this ultimately where I'll end up?  Or does someone know of a way to boost the bottom...is this common with  Larrivee B band systems?

Looks to be based on a Gibson L5. Nice.

A capo that sells for a hell of a lot of money and is confusing to operate?  

I'll keep using my Planet Waves NS, my G7 or my Shubb. Simple and effective and all three together were cheaper than a Thalia.

I would try the 16" and 20" radius rubber inserts first and see which of those seems to work best. Although newer Larrivees are 16" radius on the lower frets, I think some older ones were 20" or even 21" (my '79 is very flat).

Read up on the different uses of the rubber versus the hard plastic inserts on the Thalia website. They suggest different materials for different purposes.

Which Zoom pedal?  I have a G5 and with a bunch of parametric eqs in seriesin the G5 have gotten a decent mic’ed guitar sound by implementing a series of parametric eqs to approximate The mic’ed Sound. Have done this with both of the acoustics in my signature

Hey George.

I really liked the Hollowbody I, but I was in the mood for something different. The Single Cut Jumbo is definitely different.

Here's some other views of the JA15





I had it out playing loud in front of a band last night. I had to manage the open strings to curb the feedback at times but overall it was a wonderful experience to play this.  This was at one of my regular haunts where I often play a PRS Single Cut with soapbar pickups. The regulars noticed the difference.  Not that they expressed a preference for one or the other, but the said this one sounds great.

The Hollobody II is the same body dimensions as their Hollowbody I, which makes it much less than what I would describe as a jazz box, it is more of a small hollowbody electric guitar.  It is a 6 pound guitar that is an absolute joy to play with the 25" scale, but I would like to have one of those jumbo models with the 25 1/2" scale... I wonder how much they weigh?  I have a fairly nice high end Ibanez SJ300 full size archtop with all wood trim and some pickups that are pretty much the same as the PRS 57/08.  I just love the tonal quality of a nice arch top guitar.  I am just getting where I can't hold up the big heavy ones for very long these days...

I admire your energy level!  I’m pretty happy just to get through my work week in one piece!

I've grown very fond of my nap chair

Hey, headsup, plugged in to the Deluxe Reverb..with bass and treble neutral on the amp, and the strings lose intensity or pop going from first to sixth.  On the B band itself I had to minimize the treble and max the bass just to get some semblance of balance.  Also, the pre-amp fader doesn't seem to make any difference at all.  Is this normal B band function?  (My LV 09 with Anthem stage pro, by comparison, is fully balanced and sounds great through the same amp.)
