Holly,

I thought the best way to open up a guitar was to put it on a floor stand in front of some large speakers and then crank up the volume to Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney!

Or in your case, just play the blazes out of it.

Norman

You could do both and watch the guitar explode. Or me, that could be entertaining as well.

When it gets here I am going to have to sell a guitar. I just can't justify having as many as I have, it's a little silly considering my skill level.

   I am not sure, but this may be mine, no definite evidence, but it is the earliest S/N and the right wood.

That would be great. I think I'm as excited about you getting your guitar as I am about getting mine.

I'm curious as to what the "ZZ" means. Other than bearded guys with extremely limited dance moves that consist of gesturing in unison.

holly

Looks like the ZZ denotes herringbone purfling. Each number that can been seen corresponds to an order with HB purfling.

 I believe that's just a cut out to place the H-bone in.

Nice pix!  I believe my LS-03R is #108555 (easy to remember) based on the chart posted with me as #59.  Nice!

I believe there is a double ring that will surround the hearingbone, those pieces you see look to be just spacers (maybe till glue sets)

I swear I am SO tired of being pecked to death by ducks it's all I can do to not pack a bag and leave NOW. I love my family and my dogs but they don't seem to realise I don't exist to cater to them. Anyway, it's too far to drive if Seattle is closest,lol. But lots of pics would be great.

holly

ps. I'll be offline for a couple days, I know, the horror, so you guys email me if something happens. You know, like they cover it with abalone.

Danny,

Flying from Houston to Vancouver is cheaper on Friday night than on Saturday morning. You might want to check it out. Nonstop on Continental for about $400. Friday night through Tuesday. That was though Sam's Club link to Orbitz.

I was gonna make a comment that they could be putting the abalone in the rosette instead of the herringbone, but I thought not.

where are you going?

WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOO!!!  According to the list at Larrivee, mine is #108542!  The sides look very nice.  Now I'm getting giddy.  Are they done yet?  Maybe I will be able to take the baby home from the guitar factory tour.  How cool would that be?
