I have decided to share "my luthier" with the members of the Larrivee Forum despite my fear that if he gets too much work he probably won't do mine anymore.  I don't make recommendations lightly, but Phil and Dave Petillo are incredible with any stringed instrument.  They just finished a guitar which Springsteen is using on his tour which is truly a masterpiece.  They've also just completed work for Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt.  Dave made bloodwood pins with abalone inserts for my OM-05 (I'll post photos in a day or two if I can figure out how).  I have no financial relationship with them other than paying for the work they do for me, but after having been through other luthiers, I would not let anyone else in the area touch my instruments.  I am including links for anyone interested.  They are located at 1206 Herbert Avenue, Ocean, New Jersey.  If you stop in tell Dave, Alvin said hi.

I'll post photos in a day or two if I can figure out how). 

to post a picture, click on ' ADDITIONAL OPTIONS ' at the bottom of the screen when you are in your new post screen.
That will open a place for you to BROWSE and select the picture you want to post.
You want to try and use a smaller size picture if you can.
