  Well that one is not mine to reveal, but it is a very sweet and special Larrivee, if it makes it through the planning stages. (also a lot of $)

I, too, was hoping to be surprised by a pyramid bridge on these, but I'll be happy with the specs we know now (and whatever surprises come along!).

            The 00-05 series did not have a pyramid bridge or the 00-09.
                       So a 00-03 would be very unlikely to have one.
This was my 00-09FM, no pyramid bridge, behind it is a F-III for size reference.


 

Here is a picture of a 00-05 that Tad used to own. It is glossed and has an abalone rosette.

     But this is the ultimate of the 00 ''paddleheads" that I have seen, it is Randy's 00-10BZ.

Tease! 

So I take it that this next one will not be decided by consensus then? Looks like I may never get a forum guitar at this rate then. Nothing has jumped out at me, though there's that used F1 on the FS section. Somebody else needs to jump on that though.  whistling

Man, that F-I 12 fret OM in mahogany/spruce is a real temptation.  It would go right along with my orig. issue parlor, and the 12 fret mahogany/spruce 00-03 that should be done any time now.  So many guitars, so little money.  Now if I could just get someone to ship me some skills to go along with the guitars I have...

Relax about any kind of Forum 5 - its gonna be a long while to get things together, and it will probably not even be a Forum specific guitar, since the concensus part of the process is the trickiest, and gets alot harder on more expensive builds. Once some basic design concepts are approved as "possible", then I will let people know what I am trying to do. There will be plenty of time for input then -  IF they say they are willing to try it -

But, it won't be designed to be as cheap as possible, and it will probably be of limited appeal - but I hope it will be extremely appealing for those few -

I'm assuming I won't know much about it until after the first of the year - and that may be wishful thinking at its best.

In the meantime, it seems that coordinating an order for 4 or so guitars may be all it takes to get something special built - They've done, OMs, and LSs, and now 00s, all in -03 series, and all emphasizing mahogany, and all 12 fret.  

What would your Forum 5 be ??????   drool

Aw heck, I can't begin to think of what I'd want in the next forum guitar - mainly because it'd cheapen the Forum IV for some and start an unhealthy debate. Let's let this one play out and let those who are in enjoy. I promise I won't be jealous!

Sorry for the hijack. Any further observations I have about "special" models should probably go in another thread.

Should we assume, for the sake of argument, that a future Forum V will be some existing (or past) model with some specific design or trim details that are not normally found on current models. ?  I'm sure they won't come up with a new shape or a departure from their tried and true bracing system.   Having said that, I'd like to see a Forum V that took the form of something like the Santa Cruz H13.    A deep bodied 13 fret design with traditional styling including a slotted headstock, pyramid bridge, herringbone trim and a nice sunburst would be nice too. 
We're just dreaming here anyway aren't we ?

                      That would be my dream as well, but that's not Tad's.

Sorry for the hijack. Any further observations I have about "special" models should probably go in another thread.
        I don't think a discussion about a Forum V has to be unhealthy debate. And I do appreciate your regard and concern for others and this thread. That is a "healthy" way to begin a consensus.
         We had a lot of discussion on a possible F-IV through 2009. I think I may have started one thread and one or two others were started. Many ideas were posted, but a small bodied F-IV was the main emphasis, though more like what TtP was wanting. ie H-13 style.
          Still in the end of 2009 we did wind up with a small bodied F-IV. Not as nice as an H-13 styled 00-72 ? would be.  But a country cousin that should sing like a bird and not break the bank. So let the discussion continue.
          If it get's thick enough, then another thread could be started.
If we ever did an H-13 style F-V or VI etc. I would be tempted to sell some gear and a few guitars to get in on that deal.
