    Jim just e-mailed me and said to expect the flat top case, but Larrivee may surprise us.
     The three piece neck isn't known, but if it's a big issue for someone then maybe they should not order the F-IV.
      Jim said it would be made in Canada.
     
      As far as tuners I would expect Pings, probably mini's. But again we may never know which ones until we receive the guitar.

       I'll re-post the specs. with these notes later.

It would be sweet if Larrivee surprised us with a archtop case.  bigrin

Yes...it might be the only one they have available for this body size...and for a small run like this, it would be a nice bonus.

Considering the FIIIs didn't get an archtop case, I would doubt it.

And guys, stop driving Danny crazy. He posts what he knows when he knows.

It's OK to bug me or call Jim at Trinity. We are all subject to communication coming in from Larrivee, but I think we who have ordered this guitar realize what it is and though the clarity on minor details is still to be attained, we should have them very soon now.

            I think this will be a great little guitar and worth the effort.

before i contact jim to order one, i was curious as to what other guitar manufacturers make an all mahogany guitar similar to this one?  what models? isn't this rather rare in the industry?
thanks,

   The limited OO-03's that Dave has @ G.A. come with the delux hardshell case. Might be the case in that size, as the -03 series smallest catalog guitar is an OM. Lynda, I think that's why we got those OM cases with the LS-03's. I just sold my F-III case, having gotten a sweet case for my B-day that fits perfectly. Classical case. Can't think of a close match to a OO other than the delux one.
   I'm still tossing this one around, as it will be one cool, small, but bigger sounding guitar for its size? Seems like a nice fit wherever you play it.

  You are right about it being rare. This is one of the only all solid S. American Mahogany guitars being made in N.America in this size right now. Martin still makes a 00-15 but not for long and it is mostly sapele, not mahogany. I suppose some of the high end makers would make one for about 3 to 4 times what this one will be costing us.
               So I guess that narrows it down to this F-IV, or some older Martins, Harmonies,Gibsons etc. Even though a lot of all Mahogany guitars have been made through the years finding one in good condition is rare.
                Some others may know of something else, like Asian models in this size etc.

Yup, over 3x's the price of the F-IV.  I'll stick with the F-IV.

Harry's in Raleigh has one of these in stock. First one I've seen. Beautiful  and just alive. I was impressed but you are right....just a little over 3x the price of the FIV.

I'm very interested in the Forum IV.  What are people expecting or anticipating in terms of the tonal characteristics of the 00-03MT?  Do you expect the voice to be similar to the LS-03MT FIII except with lower volume and perhaps a shriller voice?   The FIV sounds like it'll be ideal for blues and ragtime but perhaps not so versatile for any other styles?

I'm very tempted but I'm worried that this will be a specific, unique, sound that I might easily grow tired.  Any thoughts or comments?

Your concerns are valid.  I've had 3 hog-top guitars and now have none.  My guess is that the 00-03MT will have a warm, woody, and sweet sound that will be very friendly and comforting to hear and play. 

But I wouldn't use it as my only guitar (unless, of course, I was stuck on a deserted island...).  If the F-IV doesn't work for me, I likely won't lose much money, and I'll stick to spruce on top.  However, I am confident and hopeful it will be a sweetheart!

Larrivee's are very nice guitars, but it would be hard to compare them truly  because the Cruz's are so light in build and are hand voiced/hand made.  Not to discredit anything, but there is a difference beyond "three times the price".  Everthing has its place.... these 00 hog tops will be nice little guitars for the $.

When is the deadline for the deposit???  Anyone know yet?  Thx!

Yup, we all know that. But this isn't the SCGC Forum IV.
         
 December 15th is close of order date. And a deposit has to be made to order the F-IV.

(I happen to know that Jim is a merciful fellow, but I'd get it in by the 15th myself)
