Jim Holler said he would try to find some clear pickguards for us. So I'm in a wait mode until I hear what he has or hasn't found. Give him some time.

I spoke to Jim today on some F-3 related stuff.  I asked about the clear pickguards, and was told that he had not found anything as of yet, and he had pretty much given up on it.  I guess we are on our own for it, or just go without.  On a good news note, he said that lately he has been getting Larrivee guitars with D'Addario strings on them instead of the Cleartones.  Could this mean we can play our F-3 gits right away before we change the strings?  Are they done yet????

Good grief.  I now look at the spec and orders thread, and see that Larrivee has found some clear satin pickguards.  According to Randy, each guitar will ship with a clear AND a tortoise pickguard.  Things just keep getting better and better. bowdown

  The phone rang as soon as we got off the line. It was John Larrivee telling me that he had found some of the old satin clear pickguards and the every guitar will ship with the standard one and the clear in the case.
  Good news!

And there is Daysailer at 659. Unavoidable for any frequent poster. Better get used to it, or even better ignore it.

Easy to say when one is barely over 200 posts.

I got the tortoise as an extra from Jim (so - 1 clear)....but man, those Larrivee cats are OK!   

I've never been involved in a cyber group thing that has evolved into something like this.  This is pretty darn cool .  By the way, I spied #14 on pictures! I'm in line somewhere!   

And to think I wondered if there would be enough room for me.

We could all bring sleeping bags and pretend it's a camp out.  We could even have a camp fire, I'm sure there is lots of extra wood lying around. I wonder what Bubinga smells like when it's burning.

  I can tell you what tone wood smells like burning. I save all my scraps, and that is not much I try to use every bit I can. I use the Brazilian rosewood, Indian rosewood, Mahogany, Cocobloa, Bacotti, bubigna, Maple, Spanish cedar, Euro spruce and various other spruces ect to start the fire in the wood stove. Brazilian has a nice sweet smell, cedar well its cedar. The rest not so much of a small.

I've got a clear pick guard on my D-03 and its great.  It provides protection without ruining the look of the guitar.  I may just hold off on sticking down the pick guard as I'm going to use my new all HOG LS-03 as a finger picker.  The biggest issue with sticking it on yourself is making sure you don't put it on crooked.  Once its stuck down it don't come off all that easy and having a crooked pick guard on such a beautiful guitar would make me nuts.

It's easier to pay $20 to have it done.

Get the pickguard into position where you want it, now put a couple pieces of masking tape on the sound hole side of the pickguard.
Use this as a hinge. Tip the pickguard up and remove the backing from the double stick adhesive and carefully lower it back down into position.

Or you could pay someone to do it.

Does anyone know why Larrivee made the decision to move from the clear pick guards to the tortoise shell versions?  Was there any issue with the wood underneath the clear pick guard discoloring differently than the rest of the guitar?  I haven't noticed this on my D-03 which is now about 6 years old but I keep the guitar indoors away from any sunlight.  Just curious.
