You are so completely right, it does look wonderful. Just a few weeks and your Silver Oak will be a fleeting memory.

Hail from Manhattan 

I'm not really keeping up with this thread but I thought I would say that the all-hog guitars look ASTOUNDINGLY good with the herringbone trim. Those will be truly gorgeous guitars! I'm sure I'll be happier with the Italian Spruce / Rosewood for tone, but I think you guys got the lookers.

Cheers,

Adam

Yes Adam, while that may be true, we and the IS/hog buyers got the 30 year old wood!

    While I agree that the hog tops are very nice, the IS/MH with herringbone perfling and rosette are stunning. And some of the RW used is beautiful. I think we are all going to be very happy with these.

Danny, I agree.   All the forum III's I've seen in the pictures look fantastic.   The Italian Spruce which you were responsible for is, indeed, very, very attractive.   Larrivee always does a good job with their rosewood too and the rw ones Iv'e seen are no exception.   The bottom line is that I think everyone will be getting what they wanted and they will all be beautiful to look at and to play.
If I couldn't have the hog I'd be just as happy with the IS.   I can't wait to hear the difference in sound between the 3 wood varieties.   17 more days.

Very fine pics indeed.  These guitars are looking awesome!  I'm catching up here on the board, hiding from the book club in my living room, having a nice hot coffee with a shot of whiskey and reading about Larrivees.

Nope.. No journalism classes.  Not many classes of any kind as far as that goes.  I've just always been real "wordy".    I have a great appreciation for the language.

It's a fine mug indeed.  I'd like one of those Traditional Series Larrivee's too... maybe 000-60 with Madi b/s's.

Wow - these look great, and I really think everyone will get exactly what they wanted.  For me, that was cutaway with no HB purfling.  As someone else said about 100 pages ago in these threads - "for me, a little HB goes a looong way."    I like how the HB rosette, sans HB purfling, draws the eye to the center of the top (especially with "no" or "clear" pickguard.)   But the dual-HB ones look great too.  The variety is a key part of the fun.

Mid-March is creeping up pretty quickly!
