Here it is... Very different tone than my Taylor jumbo, also sapele, but it has mediums on it and I don't know what the Larrivee has arrived with. I'll just play them out for a few days and them put on something heavy as I like. Amazing difference in tone based on pick selection. It's much more noticeable than on some other guitars. I winder why that is?

I may have worn out the strings already. At least I know I've worn out my fingers. Compared to my other guitars, this isn't as boomy as a Martin may have been, but it has something about it I like. I have a feeling these are light strings, so a set of phosphor bronze mediums would probably move the tone in the direction I like.

I put heavy chrome tuner buttons on it and put the ebony away. I don't know why the ebony doesn't look right to me, but no big deal. It already has a bone saddle. So, I guess I'll try a set of basswood or bone bridge pins I have and see how they sound, (if there's any difference), and the strings like I mentioned.

Tomorrow night I'll be home alone, so I can bang on guitars as much as I want. By Friday, I should be ready to do all this experimentation.

This is definitely a guitar you can catch yourself staring at. The reddish sapele with the cream colored maple around it just tends to make me stare.

I don't know fongie... maybe not so much another guitar as getting back to lessons.  Ever since one particular teacher I had moved to the west coast of Florida, I haven't been able to stick with any particular teacher, either because we couldn't communicate or in the case of the last one, who is still a friend, because my money got tight and I simply had to stop shelling out $40 an hour every week. I'd like to get back to lessons more than looking for another guitar.

Time to get to work!

There's a rumor to that effect, but nobody has been able to prove it. It's just a rumor.
