I'm hoping it's a herringbone back strip, but I don't know...  drool

If you get 21 orders I might need to jump in and snag # 22 to go with FIII #22.  whistling  Just joking, sort of, maybe...

The new details regarding the headstock inlays and backstrip sound like they will dress up this little guitar nicely....

In response to a recent query, it is my understanding that Jim H is OK with affixing a bone saddle.  At least, he didn't complain when I made that request at the time of my order.

Another vote here for sticking with the 12/15 order deadline, not that any of us can control production but more because folks aren't going to be hanging out/placing new orders in the last part of Dec.

I, for one, am very pleased over the final specs.  Hoping the sound matches the specs.

That looks great on that rosewood back, Randy, but herringbone would look better with the her. rosette and the matching hog top and back. Just sayin' - I know we on't have any control over that detail.  Very sweet specs, no matter what! Like someone said, I don't know how Larrivee can make any money on this thing!

Well, well, well.

I know I've been a ghost lately but I login to check out what everyone's been up to and holy smokes, this thing is already 32 pages deep and I'm seeing it for the 1st time!  This is a real nice special guitar, my best wishes to all that are ordering one.

Me too, first I'm seeing this.  I'm in sell mode but this one pushes all my buttons and could not resist...

Ok, I really hate all of you for encouraging my GAS addiction.   

I will be #16. 

My thanks to all who made this possible.

Am I crazy? My wife definitely thinks I am.  My new and first Larrivee just arrived yesterday from Trinity Guitars and I’ve today sent them a deposit check for this Forum IV. 

Waiting for Jim to confirm if I’m #17 (or #18 which is a lucky number according to Asian tradition)

If I follow your logic, I should be pretty safe...yet. I'll have to wait until there are 77 orders of FIV to go with my FIII #78.

Hey guys.

Been lurking for a few weeks and just stumbled on this. Thanks to the mysterious crack I discovered on my 10 year old Taylor 312 I've been thinking of something I'd like to replace it with. Weary of Taylors overpricing and enrapt with Larrivee's quality the idea of a small mahogany 12 fret I can fingerpick sitting on the couch is too tempting, especially with the unique features the F-IV will have. My thanks to the guys who set this up!

John, Welcome. I get an error with your link.  The URL contained a malformed video ID.

I think we might have met once upon a time.

  I don't know if you realize it but you just saved me from making a mess of things.
      I really needed some encouragement with the last barrage of negative PM's and posts.

              EVERYONE has an opinion and sometimes they all just add up to muck.
                                        (I do not exclude my own)
