Just out of curiosity - were there other 2 models made before as well, and if so when and were they also made via a dealer/s, and who were the dealers?

Zohn,

A search will return 'almost' as many threads as one will get for Forum III.

Forum I and Forum II were really the same guitar, just 2 orders placed about 3 months apart. The guitar was an OM-03 (mahogany only), 12fret neck, abalone rosette, mop Larrivee inlay, and your choice of either sitka spruce or mahogany face.





The order was managed by Jason at Notable Guitars.

Thanks guys, a particularly nice pic of all the models in the rack - how many were made in the end?

I'd bet a donut that there were more spruce than hog top built.

You would lose that bet.

I don't mind loosing a donut...but now I'd like to know for sure. Do you know for sure?

I spent about 20 minutes searching the old Forum Guitar (I) thread and the only real number I saw was the original breakdown of the first 12 guitars that got the whole ball rolling. That was 7 spruce and 5 'hog. But I know that run consisted of 17 once all the orders came in...and I'm not sure what the next five orders consisted of...

And I never really paid attention to the second run...because by that time I had a new guitar to play with....

I wonder if Jason has a record....

OK, after much searching this is what I found


Forum

8= Spruce
9= Hog

Forum II

9=Hog
1= Spruce (Jasons replacement)

I think this info is correct but if someone knows better speak up.

Ok...here is my donut.

 

I didn't pay attention to the 2nd run of forOM guitars and didn't know they were so heavily hog top. The donuts were worth it! Now my spruce top is worth more due to the relative scacity of spruce tops!  thanks for the research....
