leftynyc
you might want to contact Jim Holler.  I'm almost positive that there was an extra lefty made by mistake.  Rosewood I believe.   I briefly considered taking it myself along with my all hog. Anyhow you might be able to work out a deal with him that would involve a trade-in or something.  Worth a shot.

Lynne and lefty, there is another LH Forum 3 in IS/RW with herringbone available.  Its one of the two that I got to choose between.  It has a beautiful IS top, and very nice rosewood sides and back.  The serial number is 108542, I believe.  Give Jim a call, it was number 68 in the build process.  I got to choose #68A.  Get it, you will not be disappointed in any way, shape or form.

Yeah, that's what I thought.  In fact I believe that one had one of the nicest tops of the bunch didn't it ?   I wouldn't have had any trouble at all taking that one home if finances had permitted.   Guess I'll just have to be satisfied with the ol hogtop.   whistling
Have you talked yourself into a 2nd one yet ?

My wife was looking at the photo of me playing my new guitar right after it was ready, and she said, my that is so much smaller than your others.  Then she looked at Lynda's and Ricky's and asked if they ordered one in a different size.  I said they were one size fits all, but we are all different sizes.

Especially for people of smaller stature, I believe the perfect size is the OM and LS.  These would be the equivalent of Taylor GC - grand concert, right?

No more jumbos, dreads, grand symphonys or grand auditoriums for me - although I may very well keep my GS - but then again, would gladly part with

it to obtain at least another one of these FG3 with hog/IS... and in my dreams maybe a third all hog.

I appreciate the pictures Matt - I pm-ed you.  Great shots!  I hope to catch some of the jamming sessions already being planned in the Seattle-Vancouver area.

Lynn, I was talking to Lynda this afternoon (early evening for her) a little bit. Talked to our jamming host - Mike too.  As far as guitars go, I believe we've got the best (okay, one of the best).

But that comment is coming from out-of-the-closet Taylor fanatics.   Still admire them Taylors and respect Bob Taylor & his company lots, but my nod goes to Larrivee 03s.

If the used market only favor the sellers instead of the current "buyers market" - I'd have sold my Taylor GS and get me 2 more FG3s, seriously.

BTW, I wish I would have invited myself to join you and Lynda on Tuesday morning. You strike me as a kindred spirit.

As for 3-16-2009, too many nice guitars, intoxicating factory tour experience - how can anyone not have multiple GAS attacks?

I still smell the factory in the sound hole of my FG3.

The emotional high and happy hormone rush was probably a Mt. Everest peak experience!  It's as good as life gets on this planet.

There was just too much to drink in.  I wish I gazed and admired Lynda's git, yours, BenF's, Norman's (Geenorm) - if money was not an issue, I'd have taken home Mike's (Vancouver Southpaw's) righty all-hog - knowing that it will have a lefty twin makes that righty special.

I wish I had time to get to interact more with ST, Johnny37, dermot, photomat, DaveG, Mike Killick, the factory workers, John Jr., Jim H.


For me, I am thankful for these amazing guitars (FG3s).  I want to tell the factory workers and the Larrivee family that what they do everyday making these very fine musical intruments (the best kept secret in the business - as you said) - is impacting many lives and making this world a better place.

The icing on the cake for me - about this Larrivee Forum, the Tour, the FG3s is:  meeting and becoming friends with folks like you, Danny, Lynda, Mike (V-southpaw), Tad and the spouses.  I really look forward to meet in person Mrs. Tuffy someday soon.

Sounds like there are some new hogtops out there to match the perfection of the F1 hogtops!  If they sound as special as the F1 HTs then,  bowdown

Some very lucky lefty out there is going to wind up with that IS/RW 'mistake".   It is very similar to what happened in the 1st forum guitar run.  Only 16 were supposed to be made but they mistakely made a lefty hogtop (1 of only 2), so it became a 17 guitar run and she eventually made it into my hands after bhika had a momentary laps of insanity and sold her to me...btw...it think I beat tuffythepug on that purchase by about 5 minutes so I'm real happy he's got his hogtop F3.

At the risk of throwing rocket fuel on a blazing inferno.................

Dude,  you need this guitar.   Your life will not be complete without it.   If you don't get it you will regret it.   Maybe not today,,,,, maybe not tomorrow,,,,, but soon, and for the rest of your life.
After all,   the problems of a man and his guitar don't amount to a hill of beans..  uh.. hmmm..  sorry. I got lost in the moment. 
 Call Jim Holler right now.  Let me just tantalize you with an image.   
Picture you, me, Joseph, Johnny37, and Vancouver Southpaw (Mike) sitting together playing our 5 lefty fourm III LS-03s together at a jam.       See below..  insert yourself and Joseph.    got the picture ?

I guess I can finally stop bugging you about selling your forum I hogtop now.   Everything works out for the best in the end.  sure wish you could have been in V'couver for the tour and jam.   that would have been icing on the cake.

If I picked up this forum guitar I would need to get my Forum I back from Joseph so I could own both of the OOPS lefty forum guitars.

What do you think Joseph, you said you wanted to unload one of your hogtops.

Although I had what I thought were a lot of good reasons for not ordering a Forum III guitar, If I had ordered one it would have been a IS top with IR back and sides with Herringbone Trim.

 Coincidentely that is what is available.

Dude!! It was meant to be!!!  You can't fight destiny!!!  The exact one you would have ordered and it so happens that it was a lefty made my mistake, cmon' man, lightning doesn't strike twice!!  That is how you ended up with your F1, right?

Signed,

1 of your enabling forum friends (who isn't going to give up that F1!)  ....Lynn is the KING of enablers!  That would be a mighty fine picure with the 5 of us lefties...we could be the Southpaw 5.  Plus, when I see you this summer, I won't have to bring my F3 with me and I can pack a couple other goodies for us to jam with.

I just PM'ed Randy about setting up a thread in the Picture forum for all the photos taken during the tour and jam.  If he sets it up and you have photos from the event please post them there. 

Thanks,
