Yessssssssssssssssssss !  The serial number matches up with mine.    Do you believe in love at first sight. ?

She looks sweet alright.  Can't wait to hold her in my arms and see if her voice is as sweet as her looks.

It seems like these are getting real close to completion.  Like I said once before, this is the most excitment I've had since the hogs ate grandma.

The Hog/IS combination looks equally as stunning as the RW/IS.  I am sure the all hog version will be incredible too.  I think the proportions of this guitar are sweet, it looks perfectly formed.  really, waiting is becoming quite difficult now!
                Ben I agree with you 100%. I really believe Larrivee should consider putting this style guitar in their line up. If they did a 14 and 12 fret model in a LS-03 and then some 05 and 09's etc. I think the Dealers would respond this year with a lot of orders and they would be a good seller.

           Modified: I wrote this late last nite, if you read it and it doesn't make sense....well have a 
 
               Martin is selling lots of gits at this size and close to these specs, It seems that everyone else including Larrivee has dropped the OO and Martin size OM/000 gits, choosing to make parlors/babys or lots of dreds and jumbos. Younger players want LOUD guitars. Give them 3 chords, or some lame worn out song like "Stairway to Heaven" and a big boomy git and they think they are a star. I guess it keeps the $'s rolling in. But if it continues in this kind of trend to Larger gits at the expense of cutting out the OO and LS etc. sized gits. Then a lot of folks with money to spare will be spending it at Collings , SCGC , Gallagher , and Martin if you can find one that rings you bell. As well as other small builders.
                I hope Larrivee does continue to make these. I truly believe the 3 wood choices we were given with the cutaway option and the H-bone perfling was a wise choice. These 3 will all sound different. One will be better to strum (MH/IS) another will be full of overtones and lush with resonance (RW/IS).  I'll leave the all hog for Tuffy and Bluesman67 to comment on. Except that all 3 will be fantastic fingerstyle guitars. That's my 100% tail light guarantee.                                 I gotta stop now; let's see 20 days to go till the tour.
           I told y'all I was a little child in an old man's body. You would have to go back 50 years for me to when I was six years old trying so hard to go to sleep,so morning would come and I could open that present, to have the feelings of anticipation that come up in me now.

She looks awesome.  The HB and the Hog go really nice together - I think it will look perhaps even better in satin than in full gloss.  I am thrilled you have got to see her at last Tuffy!

really believe Larrivee should consider putting this style guitar in their line up.

NNOOOOOOO, then it wouldn't be unique to the forum guitar.  Agreed that a 14 fret version would slot back into their range perfectly.  Maybe the 12 fret version is better as a limited run, there may be a lesser market for it out there.

Absolutely.  Me playing the forum III is like a kid with a learners permit driving a Ferrari.
I'd love to see how it handles with a pro "behind the wheel"  If anyone can demonstrate what the forum III is capable of "in the corners" it's Denis.  (Pardon all the racing analogies)

Racing analogies aside...thanks for the kindness guys. 

We'll just have to wait and see.  I might go as soon as I get the guitar to make a few videos in the studio where I recorded the CD.  I think I need to record a bunch of covers with vocals and put them up on YouTube and on my MySpace page...
