FYI, re: Facebook, I'm not real happy being there either, but if you put the minimum amount of info about yourself, it seems to be safer. I have my pic of Holly as my picture and I haven't said where I live. Just my six cents.

Wow!!!

I am so out of the loop.  There's Facebook talk, pictures, and an exclusive thread for pictures of the build process of the FG III.

Thanks so much whoever is responsible for this... Randy, Ben, and is there anyone else I missed?  Thanks to all.

BTW, Randy, how do you find time to do anything else?  (the OOO-60 Braz/Adi must be seeing a lot of playing time)

So cool to have pictures and documentation and names of Larri staff.

ricky   

(PS. I was already in bed last night, when my wife Beth walked into our room, handed me an envelope stuffed with 300bucks and said, "for your guitar"

I need to clarify whether she's referring to the FG III or the OM-40 at Long & McQuaide I'm GAS-ing about... oooppsies !!!  )

*The two digit numbers you see on the sides are not the Forum III Guitar numbers. They are used as a reference much earlier on in the matching stage done by Chris.

This is the application of extra strong glue and the 'special' clamp with maximum pressure, to make sure the patch cannot get stolen by aliens.

You laugh, but I heard if they don't clamp it down it turns into a big block of ebony with the number two on it.

Did anyone see any Hog tops in the photos or are they doing the Italian Spruce top guitars first?  I thought I saw at least one Hog top having the bracing installed in one of the photos but wasn't sure.  None of the serial numbers seems to have a "MT" designation and the one shot of all tops being sent into the humidity room was all IS.

Having daily photos makes the whole thing so much more fun.

Does this mean that you guys managed to confirm that the V is actually a V and that it designates cutaway? It just seems unlikely since LSV is the designation used previously.

Are you crazy? Stickers on a Larrivee case. That's sacrilige! On a crappy case sure..but on a Larrivee case... 
For your entertainment and puking pleasure...to help pass the time. Holly may have a stroke or just lay on the floor quivering
for a month or so. Good news is that when she comes out of it, her guitar will be done. In fact it may have darkened.

      
                                    real deal mescal label (worm)

    No Bombs  Sun studios


I understand this case has been replaced and reitred..to the dump.
