I was told that if they make a product using shells (abalone or MOP), there would be an additional $150 export fee on top of the additional cost of using the shell.

Tim
Really? Does that make any sense? Export Fee? Is that a Canadian tax?
It kind of makes sense to me.  I'm a software developer and added Canadian tax support to the FTD (florist) retail software.  There were a lot of different tax combinations possible when a flower delivery order went into or between provinces.  I suspect the same applies to exports, especially if they consume natural resources which might be local and/or relatively limited.  In this case, I was told this by Jim @ Trinity and assume it to be true.

I agree, I like this thread.  I cannot wait until we see some pics of production, if that is gonna be possible.  Will they have been started at all yet, or will everyone at Larrivee be concentrating on NAMM just now?

When this is finished, this thread should be published and sent to all Forum III purchasers as a momento.

  Well I guess that's it. Once again by consensus we move on. I like it that way, so let's leave it open as a forum III coffee shop, hang out.

Thanks for the kind words about my Forum guitar.........and the stand.



About the stand. I do make them myself. Most are made out of Cedar, but some out of Fir. I wanted something that would look good in the living areas of my houes since I leave my guitars out (no kids, no dogs, no drunks). I've made most of them for myself and family and friends, and sold a couple. The design is my own and I'll provide a set of Pics of the details to anyone who wants them, just PM me with your e-mail and I'll send them out. I've not been making them for a year or so now, but the last ones went for $100 ea., if anyone is interested (not a lot of material but a lot of labor and finishing time).

Can I make one suggestion, however, and that is that if we do get some pictures or build information, regardless of who receives the information, can it go via Ricky, only because I have so missed his BREAKING NEWS posts over the last few weeks!

Those guitar stands are fantastic Gary - great work!

Hey Ben,

just thought i'd say hi.   I have hardly been here lately.  In fact, I have not read several pages of this thread.

Gary's guitar stand is indeed fantastic looking.

So Ben, if Gary is in a generous mood, maybe you can have his stand and

I'd rather have the guitar. 


What a beauty !!!   nice guitar  I sure would love to hear it sing.

Gary- those stands are beautiful, functional, and way cheaper than anything like it. If anyone checks out prices on full wood stands (neck support also), the cheapest is around $150 (US). You'd be doing all forumites a big favor & giving a great deal for what looks like a high quality stand. Make some money ($100), make alot of people happy, & make yourself happy knowing this ! If you have the time, set up a thread & start taking orders. I'm still working on $ for the forum git, but I'd be down for one in the future !

should we let this thread run (stickied) until the FIII guitars are delivered, or should it be locked and cut adrift?

Since this thread is approaching the size of encyclopedic proportions, we can call this Volume 1, locked.

Volume 2, open, will be the "waiting period."

Volume 3 will start after everybody gets their git delivered, call it  "The First 100 Days" ... man, that sounds like the Presidency and I'm not even American.

I like Ricky's idea, well thought out...
For any who will someday use the archives to research these guitars as they become available on the used market, it will be very awkward to wade though soo much info..    Breaking it up into logical sub-catagories makes a lot of sense.   We  can keep the energy alive and still keep the seperate stages of this event unique and accessible.

Just my $.02, if that much........ds
