Is the Slott head dead????? As I mentioned in a previous post and if it was addressed I missed it and apologize now BUT initially Larrivee needed 4 persons to make this project happen thus if 4 or more want a slott can it happen along with maybe the majority who may not??  :   

I understand your rationale on this - but I'm pretty sure Larrivee told Jim Holler only ONE set of specs...I'm sure that is also what helped keep the price so low.

Adding another set of specs/two models would no doubt raise the price on both.

I have to agree with you!  I was just playing my Santa Cruz D-12, and that Slothead sure is Purdy!  I love em!
Maybe the one with the Slot could be the Forum V if there were enough orders - with herringbone and a Tortis pickguard!  LOL
Am I causing trouble now or what!   (blame it on the vino)!

You will probably get a tortis pickguard with this.  Not likely to get a slothead, but it is a nice thought. Would add a bit of cost to the build. I'd like to know what case would be included -

The 03 series case seems logical.

Now that the price is set and I assume the numbering was done in order of succession with your deposit with Jim and when the Specs are finalized maybe a Forum IV part 2 topic can start ( locking this one) for the new stage as this one is almost 20 pages already!!!!!!

   Randy, since we have the price now we need to do something about an order only thread that can show the Forum name of the person ordering. This is at Jim's request.


              All orders are made with Trinity Guitars with a deposit of at least 25%
Gotcha covered on this, Danny.

The 03 series case seems logical.

Except they've never made -03 series 00s until this run that is just getting done, so I'm wondering if they've had a bunch of flat top cases made in the 00 size, or if they might use the archtop case that came with all the higher series 00s they've made.

  Same as any 03 series as far as I know. When more details come in I'll post them.
       
                           I post EVERYTHING I know as soon as I can get it done.

With the Forum III a few people placing orders did not want it publicly known, ie posted on the forum. So the posted Forum list was never 100% accurate.

Hence, Jim Holler will keep the ONLY official list. Jim will email us once a week with the total number of confirmed orders to-date (deposits received). This will be a NUMBER only, not a list of names.

So if you want to state here you've ordered one, thats great. If you don't, thats your business and ok too.

Although it hasn't been stated, I presume that Jim Holler would be willing to perform additional (paid-for) luthery and accessory add-ons like pickups, and so on.


I'll note that a silver border on the headstock is very unusual for a -03 series instrument, and neither the Forum I/II nor Forum II had a headstock border.

For the record, I'm still sitting on the edge concenring ordering one for myself, as I have a nice 00 already and am trying to reduce the size of my collection. But I do prefer a 00 over a parlor for most playing and would like a mahogany 00.

Since I have no idea what Larrivee 00 specs are., can you verify whether these are correct?

14.25" lower bout ?
10.25" upper bout ?
8.25" waist ?
4.25" body depth ?
