Wouldn't that be one, by default? I don't like surprises, then again i don't like getting excited about anything either. Too much 'other shoe' involved.

Maybe thats why early on Jim said that Jean is not doing any more surprises. Maybe after he added abalone rosette (I believe that was the surprise) to the other forum guitars some people were not happy and voiced their opinion to him.

Ok, this should kick us to page 100     

I'm seeing many different nick-names (abreviated generic reference) for this Larrivée Forum Guitar III.

Since we did such a great job agreeing on the guitar, agreeing on a consistant nick-name (abreviated generic reference) should be a piece of cake.   ?  right ???   (mabe not)

I will leave the imagining, listing, proposing, defending, lobbying, bribing  (oh that politics, sorry), and voting (politics again) in the fantasticly qualified hands and hearts of "The 65"   bowdown

ds   rolleye

EDITED, to replace 'Nickname' with 'abreviated generic reference'

Just read an interesting post, see daysailer's post above.

FG-3 .. eh
F3, sounds like a race car, but nice and short
F-III,  looks kind 'a classy, like a prepy 'sir winston livingstone nelson, 'The Third'

Good bait in the water, Daysailer!

How about F3 for Friends, Family, Fun.

We Forumites are the Friends, the Larrivees are the Family, and the good times playing will surely be the Fun.

How about 'Steve'?

This is all nuts. Let's name it 'JoJo', have a Jean bobblehead affixed on the headstock, voice actived laser light rosette and a sandwich dispenser soundhole. Which could be cool, I'm not sure.

Surprise!

That might or might not be cool. But I actually remember a period of time in the '50s or '60s when you could buy loaves of round bread, the better to contain those round slices of bologna or salami.

Nickname?  That's for each of us to decide for our own LS-03. 

Forum III is the "official" name, so F-III works.  But the Mac disciples might want   i-F-ii

.....

'Nickname' was a poor choice of words.  sorry   blush

What I meant was; "abreviated generic reference to", 
When typed in my origianal post,  that seemed too clinical,  so I 'choose poorly' an alternate wording.

but I would be nice if I could at least get this as early (or late) as everybody else.

Sure, Jean can use his magic sleigh and reindeer. Oh, wait, that's Santa. Another figure of mythic proportions. I'm sure everyone will be discreet IF discretion is warranted but I'm not sure how anyone can swing them all being delivered at the same time. You can't get that to happen inside one country, much less on an International level.

Man, I actually finished reading the last 3-4 pages or so since last night.

Regarding the "surprise" - the guitar specs are finalized, we have had many surprises along the way, if there's any tricks left in Jean or Jim's bag(s) - so be it; otherwise, I hope I'm speaking for all of us... I'm just so thankful we are now living life after January 2, 2009... not a very long time since the original thread and first post was started on the evening of November 28, 2008.    What's that... all of December + 4 days (2 in Nov and 2 in Jan).

Good point on keeping the low bling design.

As for me asking questions to Jim H whenever there's a request, I publicly apologize to Jim H and the good folks of this Forum... if I keep coming to him with questions that have already been answered.  I guess I merely see myself as a "messenger". My personality is one that want to accommodate and include everyone.

Since my upbringing is in a culture where haggling is a virtue, and raised by shrewd and thrifty business minded Dad and Mom, I tend to be the typical buyer - who wants to get as many features and as many gifts / surprises as I can for FREE... I even have some really selfish thoughts about "the deal I deserve" but quickly deleted that shameless line the other night.

So... this is not exactly "breaking news" but my cheap shot at pushing for Page 100... and hopefully a more substantive nth post.

Let's be mindful of Jim H... he is working so hard and keeping farmer's hours.   
I hope he gets peace and quiet and good rest and lots of alone and family time in the midst of this.

This has been said many many times... we thank you and appreciate you a lot Jim H for representing us and making this project possible.

Many thanks to the Larrivee family... may your tribe increase and bless the current and future generations with countless delicious musical instruments !!!

Warmly,

ricky

Ricky,

To aid in the progression of this thread to 100 pages (!), I was curious as to how you conceive your LS-03R comparing to your 00-09 in sound and playability.

BTW, it's been fun following all the meanderings of this thread. A couple of times I almost contacted Jim to try to work out some sort of a deal, like trading my ST68 plus cash or something.  bigrin Deadline has passed and still on the outside looking in, but it's fun to look. And to think of all the times I teased my wife about window shopping!

Best,

There are 2 Larrivee dealers in Edmonton and 1 has an LSV-11e in stock --- that will set me back midway between 3-4 Gs in Canadian pesos.  I played it twice.  I figure, it will be the closest thing to my LSV-03R.... ladies & gentlemen, vanity won again, emotion won again - I kept the cutaway option. But my FG III is half the price of the LSV-11e... Yey !!!

My OO-09 is a very comfortable couch guitar. I believe this would suit your playing style as you don't strum much. It's best for finger style and has a surprising volume and projection that I tend to take a second look to convince my eyes that it is coming from that small guitar... just a smidge bigger in the lower bout than my Ami.

The OO disappoints me in the strumming department. That's not what it's designed to do.  So if I want my guitar to "growl" without falling apart, I go to my Taylor GS. Should I replace the GS someday, I hope there will be the signature Larrivee model in my future - the L-03R.

Here's what I've yet to do with my OO:
(1) Install a K&K pwm.
(2) Install a bone saddle... I hear from other OO owners that it makes a big difference.
(3) Lots of fun with this... experiment with different strings... the only ones I've known is the Elixir Mediums that all my Taylors came with.
(4) Sell it together with all my other guitars and keep the FG III for good, for life... and live the word "simplicity."

I'm expecting my LSV-03R FG III to be the guitar I'd grow old with.   I see it having a few bumps and nicks and hopefully mature and develop it's own MOJO.


IMHO, you deserve a FG III just for being a man of steel when it comes to Cents-ibility.
