At first reading, Good point about Marketing.
Second thought....  This is a presold limited run of guitars that wont be sold new to anyone who would be influnced by marketing.
The F-III's that will be photographed already belong to someone.   US, as in we the Larrivee forumites.

Please post all possible photos of the Larrivée Forum III Guitar here on the Larrivée Forum.  

Thank-you......ds

regarding marketing....they don't need to sell these specific guitars...but just some do some general branding (for free)...get people to see what they are doing...at that others are interested enough to order special models....so when somebody goes into a shop to buy a guitar for themselves or their kid....Larrivee is not a strange unknown name. They may remember specifically and go looking for a Larrivee...or feel less resistance to buying an unknown brand if they remember the name.

regarding posting the photos on here. My post was just a teaser. Randy has a thread going in the "Photos" section and he said he was going to post the pix here as well...

I have decided to create a spreadsheet (mostly because I'm extremely anal retentive and can't stand scrolling through all the pics time and again, sorry DS), that chronicles all guitars seen in the photos. I will update it daily as needed. Did we ever figure out if the VS belongs to this group or not? I imagine by that number that it doesn't.
......

Those who know me will freely say that AR is a fixture in my personallity as well.  If you could see the 43 year old sailboat that I restored and race in person, it would be 'perfectly' clear.  (or show room glossy where ever you look)......(hmmm ....wonder why I prefer satin guitar finishes  ???)

I also hate scrolling.....Why cant we have a F-III Photo thread in the Photo section of the forum  ??  That would keep the written thread managable.

Thanks for the "sorry DS",  but competely unneccessary... I'm too old to have a thin skin.  We're all just talkin' 'bout our passions here and that will always incite our emotions, positive and ...the other...  

Thanks for taking the time and initiative to make the list of serial #s...

EDIT:   this poster missed some recent info about the photo section mentioned above while typing this post..Missed it by 52 seconds.... opps

I am more than happy to have created and will update the serial number list on a daily basis. I think it's more my curiously than anybodys, but as I said, I'm REALLY anal retentive.

Dotneck....Some of the photos in that section go way back to when you first joined the Forum..  Kind of fun to run through it and see some of our friends from the past..  if you look far enough back you can find photos and threads about the Blackwood frenzy, that will remind you of our recent F-III energys.

ALRIGHT  -   What have you guys been up to  -

I have been avoiding this thread since it won't get my guitar here any faster, but now I see there is a Forum Guitar facebook group, a photo section, and a trip to Vancouver being planned.

Did I miss anything else?  Are we ordering matching outfits or something?

I disagree completely.  It will be the cutaway version, but LSV would confuse it with the LSV-11 which has different specs.  That VS-03R will probably be Ricky's cutaway model IMHO.

Randy, I have saved them all from Facebook (so that I can delete my account there when this is finished), and could post them on the photos thread if you want.  I am very very sad, and have also saved the captions so that I could print them and keep them as a momento.  I can't post them on your thread because it is locked, so let me know if you want me to start a new one.

Do you really need to scroll to see those photos? They are only 600 px wide....

Yes, we are getting matching ball caps. 

I'd also pony up for a tee shirt, coffee mug, embroidered polish cloth, or other such thing. Someone has a business opportunity here.
