This past week or so I've been playin my OMPA alot.First for those who don't know this guitar it's a maple back and sides OM 12 fret neck to body Lovely cheesey yellow to black sunburst satin finish,think Kay and Harmony from the 50's and 60's.I reset it up for my 14 to 58 string gauge.I'm mostley playing in a drop D tuning and DADDAD.Lordy I forgot why I fell in love with this baby,lots of mids with a good strong bass and treb presence.I'd post a sample but I haven't broken down and gotten into the 21 century.You'll just have to take my word for it.Well thats it Back to work and dreamin of PICKIN ANA GRINNIN. :P

A couple of weeks ago several used OMPAs were for sale at the same time.  Very cool guitars.  Everything I have heard about them leads me to believe they are one of the Larrivee hidden treasures that will be highly sought after in the future.  
Since you won't post us a sound clip, how about a pic ;)

If I remember correctly, that guitar actually won an award. The only Larrivee to ever win an award. I know that they made it look "cheesey" on purpose, but maybe if it didn't look that way they'd still be in production and selling well. Supposed to be a very nice blues guitar.

I believe it was a limited run and I don't think Anderson endores Larrivee anymore though I have read that he still's plays them.

Rob,
Send the guitar to me. I'll record something for you. May take 6-8 months to get it right though. ;)

No offense, Orsino, but it shouldn't take more than 4 months to do this. I promise if it is sent to me I will do it in 3 months!

Somehow I don't doubt their intentions either. But I do have a sneaking suspicion that their true intentions have not been stated?  B)

As for Unclrob Goes Wild Volume 1, that would probably be as painful for us to watch as it is for you to have us watch it.  ;)

Mostly, I can be trusted. In this case...

Just a very straight forward humanitarian gesture. Considering Orsino's "kind" offer I thought it might be wise to offer you another option.

Hey, I didn't want to start a bidding war. Just tryin' to help ;)

Considering Orsino is close enough to pick it up from you I suppose I should at least offer to pay the shipping. Huh, how about it? Just tyring to help ;)
