Well it strums well, and has louder volume for fingerstyle than an OM, its easier to play that a dred (with less bass but more definition)... i guess versatility is a good description....

   Right now, which isn't up there, my LS-03 IS/HOG HB. All time favorite is my '93 L-10 Custom. Just has matured into the guitar I thought it would. Still sounded great brand new, but a different sound! Now, it just blows away the competition!

actually, L-05 represents not only itself, but also includes its cutway sister.

OM-3R...Understated yet great tone and performance.  It is like Al Pacino's character in "the devils advocate"  the little guy, never let's you see it comin'.  Great guitar, my number one.

I chose the L-09 because I like the L design and it's most like a guitar that I've already chosen over other body types. I went shopping for a guitar in April of 1983 and of the guitars that I tried, the L-07 was the one that got my money. It's a great finger players' guitar and handles a pick pretty well too. I own 11 guitars including two Gibson's and one Martin, and the L-07 is the go-to guitar for me.

I didn't see D-03SO on the list, so I checked D-03.  Of the Larrivees I've owned or played, I like that one the best.  It sort of gives the openness and balance of mahogany D or L, but with a little more mellowness and bass.  I would have probably chosen an L over a D, except that I like the narrower neck of the Ds and the older L-03s.

No longer available is my DV09, obviously I'm prejudice. If I had to choose I think it would be the LSV-10 (also not listed), trusting in Jean's pref's.

I owned two Larrivees at the time of this poll, and I chose the D-03R over the L-03R. Today I own a D-50, which is probably more like a D-60 or an SD-60 b/e of the rosewood and enlarged soundhole. A fantastic instrument, even with me playing. Of course, it listed at $3K when it was new,probably at least $4K today, while the Ls were less than half that fifteen years later. For value, I'd go with the 03s when they're new, although they've gone up in price quite a bit already.

I play both an L-03E mahogany sides/back and a D-03R.   I'm very happy with the sound quality in these guitars, they have required no set up as of yet ,with several string changes since new.  To choose one over the other is tough.
I'm going with the L-03E as it is the most versatile, plays great with several acoustic styles, and sounds good plugged in or unplugged.   A very comfortable guitar to play for sure.     I'm lucky to have both the mahogany and rosewood tones to enjoy.   Rob

Om-05 (mahogany) because I would like to have a real high quality om.  And Larrivee stuff is hi high quality.  No need no cutaway.  A five series cos', well, I just want a shiny Larrivee without shelling out a lot of peas.  (My Larry is an L-03).  However, a mahogany Larry D-4 or 5 dread would be nice, too.  (And if frogs had wings, they wouldn't bump their asses.)

I had to choose the L-10, because you don't list the L-19, which was once the "L-9.5."  I like it best because it plays like a dream, and allows me to keep my C-10 in pristine condition and out of daily usage.
