I'm glad you identified the end of Jim's email, or I wouldn't have spotted where your bit began Ricky

Good news.  You just made 2008 - it is 11:45pm here.

Oh yeah, this guitar is now so sweet I'm going to have to check my blood sugar!  I'll be calling Jim soon.  IS/RW plain and simple.

Thanks Ricky.

Excellent news!!!  This Forum III guitar is really going to be special.  Btw...I was starting to suffer from withdrawal after not having any "BREAKING NEWS" updates for at least a week.

2008 is now complete.

Thanks Ricky, Jim and Randy and Happy New Year to all you crazy GUITAR-O-HOLICS!

I have been resisting up until now but it just got much harder. 

1/4" smaller all around makes this a much more attractive (smaller!) guitar and the price is so right.  If I email Jim tonight I would technically be buying the guitar in 2008 and my 2009 resolution would be intact...

I am really pleased that so many people seem to have been quietly feeling that the smaller size was critical,  but had not been speaking up.  Thanks Danny for identifying this and well done Ricky/Jim for resolving it.  For me, I wasn't fussed by the size at all, but I am really pleased that more people are properly happy now.

I also notice that Jeff has added his name to the order list, as well as Lynda again. +1 +1 +1

Danny, are you now seriously fighting the temptation to order 2, now that the specs are exactly what you were looking for?

  I did mention to the wife tonight something to that effect. I may seriously consider selling my OM-21 to order another one. I can't justify having so many gits around as I have now. But these are just going to be right up my alley.
   But as some have said they may also come up for resale do to the high number being ordered.
            I may just be content with one and let the GAS pass whistling

       I'm very happy to see so many that are pleased with these specs. It really is the Guitar we were shooting for.

I would love an OM-21.  I couldn't justify getting rid of one for a second forum III.  I also think ordering 2 would dilute the appeal, given that it is an exclusive guitar.

Pass the GAS Dan.  OM-21 is a guitar to keep.

Well with the "breaking news" revelation that Forum III is taking on the old LS dimensions this former fencewalker has come down convinced.  I'll be placing an order with Jim ASAP.  I just couldn't bring myself to purchase a guitar without knowing what it would look like.  But that's all history now and kudos to those who pushed to clear this crucial detail up.

Happy New Year

Yes Ben, I'm back. Once the Canadian shipping issue was dealt with I had to figure out how I was gonna pay for it. I have gotten myself into a bit of a hole with my credit card right now, but have a plan to dig out of that hole and pay for the forum git too. So, I'm not beating myself over that, which is a HUGE step forward for me.

What? No guilt over an expensive purchase that you don't need and is just for you? I think you just broke through our  genetically ingrained  female guilt code. I salute you!
