Too many guitars... But I keep thinking one more may just do it.

Hi guys. I'm new to this make of guitars. I'm looking for some advice and opinions about the 12 string series of Larrivees. I've been a supporter of Canadian made guitars and a supporter of Canadian Luthiers. I have other guitars from Quebec and Newfoundland and now venturing to the west coast. By doing so I'm upgrading my guitars as well. Some of my friends play them and I liked what I heard.  Now I' m looking for a 12 string. I'm undecided to go rosewood or not, is there a big difference and worth the extra cost. My experience is that I'm not a working musician or belong to any bands. I just enjoy playing around here and there with friends occasionally. So if anybody who owns or uses a Larrivee 12 string professionally please let me know how you feel ab  out them.
Your comments will be appreciated and valued.

Thanks in advance.

Bill, welcome to the forum. You'll probably get more responses if you start a new thread. This is a technical FAQ and isn't really the place. It would be better to delete this post and start a new thread.

I notice the D-02 is not mentioned in this comparison list. Does anyone know how it differs from the D-03? So far, the only thing I can tell is that mine doesn't have the neck binding.

I'll answer my own question.. found this on the Larrivee site:

What is the difference between an -02 and and -03?
The -02 series was initially a limited run for the year 2000. The -02 and -03 were almost identical except for the -02 has black plastic ABS fingerboard binding and the -03 has white paper or Ivroid fingerboard binding, and the -03 was made with a slightly higher grade material. The -02 was cancelled in 2001. There are currently no plans to bring it back.

I'm not a wood expert, but in my opinion the quality of a guitar's sound is mostly influenced by the soundboard; back and sides have actually a minor influence

I think the side/back woods have recognizeable tones and are crucial, but you can get a Larrivee model with a variety of woods. Collings Guitars (the best my hands have played) has a guy that taps out all of the body's wood pieces for a match in tone before assembling. Intriguing to me

Just to update, I'm quite sure all models come with a Arch-top case. It's not noted here

Like i said above, there's no point in publishing stuff like this (or posting it) if its wrong.  I have a 10 series w/ mahogany back & sides. Therefore, the 10 series is not always rosewood back & sides.  I've seen 10 series that are bubinga, mahogany, rosewood, maple, koa, and ziricote.  The only thing I haven't seen is walnut, there's probably been sopme those made as well.  So, let's try to get it right or not bother to just repeat what can be found just as easily on the Larrivee web site. 

The info is for standard models though. If you list any special run Larrivee made, you'd probably be better off naming any and every wood (except add a Obsolete beside cedar ;)).

The 03 series comes with a flat top case and the 05 series and above come with arch top. That is not to say there are not exceptions to the rule.

Oh so that's what an archtop case is. Thanks for the clarification.
