Those of us who cant be in Vancouver Monday wouldnt mind a "spoiler" story.  Please, please..throw us a crumb.  How did it smell, how did it feel, was it assembled yet?
  It smelled, felt and looked liked the sweetest little git I have ever owned. Which Edwin pointed out to me ie. that it was mine.

  These questions are why I only asked to see "my guitar." It's not my place to say any more than what I have said. Monday will bring pictures and commentary from a lot of forum members. I don't know is my answer Jeff. And actually I would excpect it to be an 03 style case myself.
                             But, I don't know

               I went to the factory today, met John Jr. saw my git and Tuffy's. I am not saying much more, but I will say I REALLY like my guitar (and Tuffy's) Edwin offered to give my wife and I a tour but I said that I didn't want to be in the way and just wanted to see my guitar. It is sooooooooooo nice.
                I saw many other things but I won't say anymore because it is not my place to say them. These are very nice guitars.
                           Something inside me just unwound when I held that little git and I felt at ease.

I sure wish I'd been able to leave a little earlier this week and be there with you when you saw the forum IIIs for the first time.  I bet that white Italian Spruce is more amazing in person that it is in the pictures.    OK..    Now you've got to give it to me straight...    I've got 3 questions...
Did they appear to be using a pretty good grade of mahogany similar to the higher end models ?
How does the 3 dot 12th fret marker look now that they are all assembled ? 
Without divulging any secrets....   is there any chance at all that I'll be able to play mine on Monday ?
just give me a wink or a nod...   

Wish I was there eating fish and chips and admiring the guitars instead of sitting here nursing a sore mouth and counting the hours down.   I guess I'll just sit here and play the ol'  000-50 and dream.

Danny, enjoy the rest of your trip.   I'll see you at the airport on Sunday.

A quote from John Larrivee on facebook.

"Mar-12
We are almost to the point which everyone has been waiting for...<snip>.....Ed knows not to put on any pickguards and each label will be hand numbered.


That's good that they won't attach the guards. It will be easier to buff the finish...and then I can choose which guard I like better....the stock Larrivee or the spare Greven Tortis I have stashed away in a drawer...

        Lynn, even Edwin commented on the look of tour git. But I can say you will be extremely happy, it will compliment your 000-50 MT perfectly. The 3 dots are subtle and very nice.

  They actually never stated that they would attach any guards. Jim will do that if it was requested of him and they will be in the case otherwise.

            I have seen some nice Greven Pg's but I want the clear one myself.

Hey Danny,

Great posts and keep the updates coming.  Some of us really wanted to be with you folks in Vancouver but the demands of everyday life didn't allow it this time around.

So nobody asked you the big question....

Was your guitar strung (or any of the others) and did you manage to play one of the Forum III gits?

Well...

In an effort to ease the pain associated with waiting the last two weeks for my Forum III guitar...I broke down and dragged my bike out of winter storage.  The temp hit 40F+ in Toronto today and I needed a distraction.  Froze my boys off but it was worth the effort and...it provided a necessary distraction from this forum until Danny, Ricky, Tuffy and the gang can post some picts on Monday from the Mothership in Vancouver.

I've posted a pict in case anyone else likes to ride.  I think Randy has a bike....

If they are using Ping tuners then I bet the 03 case will be what they use.  Works for me.  Although I wish they were using Schallers....

Also, does anyone know if I send a pickup system at this point will they install it for me while they are setting up the guitar???

If they can't do it at the factory then Jim can do it at his shop prior to shipping:  unless you are one of the ones who are getting drop-shipped directly to you from the factory.

Nice looking Harley!  Or is it a Suzuki?  Doubt if its a Honda.  Could it be a Yamastar?  Wonder if its a Kawa Vulcan.  Sorry if I didn't pin it down, it looks like a very comfortable ride.  Do you have heated handgrips?  I sure could use them right now on my Guzzi. 

Oh, the forum guitar:  I'll admit here and now that my enthusiasm for the III has waned.  Perhaps seeing it in person will make things right.  My '40 parlor "toy" guitar has my heart right now. 

But buying FIII will help the economy, right?

Its a 2007 Yamaha Roadstar Midnight Silverado and its a beast.  Engine displacement is 1700cc (102 cubic inches) and it goes like stink.  There seems to be a relationship between guitar players and motorcycle riders.  I often wonder if its a leftover from the days when there was a relationship between playing the guitar and riding a horse across the wilderness.  Maybe guitars and motorcycles both bring out that natural tendency we all have for freedom and the open road.  There is no heating on my bike.  A good looking girl on the back helps some....

  OK, just to let y'all know , I tried to get a few pics out of my phone to show you my F-III, but the Vancity phone system is not jiving with AT&T and won't send them to my e-mail address. Sorry.
 
        Even though I am here, I agree that the wait has worn me down a bit also. A nice touring bike would be very interesting this spring. Say a BMW R100RT like I used to own.
            Oh well, time to practice on d's Webber
