In that case, I'll send her a quarter coin in USD... hey, that's more than a hundred pesos where I come from.

Ricky, not yet, but the pic of the (only) three VS-03s sides, to the best of my knowledge, have consecutive serial numbers, so I assume from that that the highest one would be yours, being #78.  I hope it is for you, because it is the most beautifully coloured piece of EIRW I have laid my eyes on.  Really light streaks through it.  I have had my fingers crossed that this hunch is correct for days now!

Ben, I looked at the 3 VS... from what I can make out of the pic, from left to right   108567, 108569, 108569 === following your theory, the middle one would be mine?

It's got light streaks...cool - though I'm more used to the dark tight rosewood typical of most 03r I've seen.  I've seen lighter ones in the 09r ==> have I got 09 grade?

Hmmmm... I see why looking at build pics is therapeutic (read "GAS reliever").

I would expect the rosewood in the 09 series to be much more uniform in color...

Personally, since I was the one with the 666 problem  , I think the money should be sent to me and in US dollars would be very nice.

you are right of course, but the light streaks sure look nice!!!  Another thread contained an interesting article on guitar making, and suggested that RW is the most consistant of all tonewoods, so perhaps differences in colour matter less than in other woods?  I am rubbish at playing, and am unlikely to ever push the boundaries of a guitars tonal ability, so looks matter to me!

If I can only find mine. But that would be like knowing the gender of the baby while still in the tummy? Or kinda more like the ultrasound thingy.

Ok... that's quite a stretch.

Heh Norm did you copy me, with the sig. line, or do we really think that much alike? And did you notice our numbers are in sequence? Lot's of "weird" stuff with Numbers the last few days.

Too many guitars... But I keep thinking one more may just do it.

Danny,

I did see yours first, but I might have done it anyway. I've been looking for this info on a regular basis. Ben scooped me in. I like having serial numbers in sequence with yours, Danny. I hope our guitars make beautiful matching bookends. It will be worth my drive to Austin to create that photo op.

Ricky,

My last hopes of making it to Vancouver are fading rapidly. Tell me more about your April activity calendar. Maybe you need a guest musician??

Hey all...

Did we ever figure anything out regarding clear pickguards for these satin guitars?  I know many will go without, but I'd like to get one.  Doesn't sound like Larrivee has any left.  

Anyone have suggestions?

Thanks..

Adam,

Clear pickguards were not an option.

Adam,

Right - which is why I'm asking for suggestions for an aftermarket solution.   

Earlier in the mega-thread about this process, Jim Holler reportedly checked with Larrivee to see if they had any of the old clear guards lying around, but they didn't.  I never saw a post mentioning any alternatives, so I'm asking here...

While Larrivee doesn't have any I seem to recall Jim at Trinity Guitars saying he was trying to locate suitable material. So it is another thing to wait for but something to hope for.

Your memory may vary from mine, I didn't go back to read Jim Holler's post.
