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 ?
  Sounds mighty close to me. I think Randy posted them in the earlier pages. But that sure does ring a bell.

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.



if it makes your decision any easier Randy, I can guarantee a buyer in around 12 months time.  If I thought I could sell anything in time to fund this I wouldn't hesitate. It is killing me that my absolute dream spec larrivee is being ordered during my life's worst spell of financing.

I can say that pretty categorically, that I will be looking for a second hand one the minute I can aford it.

         Just a FYI, I will make a list from this thread and personal e-mails and PM's to give to Jim. We hope that everyone who wants to can have the opportunity to buy this little guitar. (which will be very rare the day it is made)
        
            I've looked and looked for the 00 size MT in many places and they are scarce no matter who makes them. And I have yet to see a Larrivee 00 MT in person. I guess my own will be the first. I have put my deposit down with Jim.

                                           Please understand that Jim Holler really went to bat for us on this one.

                                                                                     +1 Thanks Jim

 Roger, thanks for that. I believe with all posted Larrivee specs. from the past, in actuality they have grown just a bit. My 00 was a bit larger as well as other Larrivees I have owned. Even my F-III is slightly larger than specs.
                I went to a dealer and measured some and noticed they tend to be slightly over in the body specs. Which is a good deal in a 00 if you think about it.

  Ahhh Ben, I'm sorry man. You know somebody will get one that really doesn't need it though and it will come up for sale.
               Besides you have two very nice Larrivees, I know, cause I've heard you play them both.

 It was not what we needed. It will be done by Jim Holler. He will let us know how many have been ordered and he will put the Forum numbers beside each order. It just keeps things simpler. There was some confusion last time. And we all can do without that.

                   We are all learning as we go here.

At least Jim has to deal with one model this time and not 12 different versions like the FIII.  Everybody's getting the same guitar.  No cutaways, no rosewood/IS, mahogany/IS, HB purfling..etc etc etc

 +1, my childlike strop is over, there are more important things in life.  Maybe by the time I learn to play properly, one will come up used.

Thanks Danny.

Well, mine will be different - it will be a lefty! 

I'M IN...my deposit just went into the (snail) mail to Jim Holler! 

The only thing that will keep me from losing my mind waiting for this is that I also just ordered an RS-4, and that should be here before Christmas...I suspect these will take till mid-February or early March?  How long did the (various) FIII guitars take to build?  drool

  3 months. But they were not ordered until January and there were 100 plus being built when you add in the 12th fret special order.

The economy was better then, too, slowing down production. I suspect Larrivee will be glad to see these orders - XX number of guaranteed sales!

Other factors could slow it down though. But we'll have some fun waiting.

BTW, I'm glad to see the herringbone soundhole rosette on these - it will look great against the mahogany.  Will these get a tortoise guard, or will it be in the case (and can we have Jim install if we want)? 

Sorry, just more questions...always more questions!!!
