As Danny said, his comments did seem credible, BUT, they have not been verified by anyone from Larrivee,

Comments don't have credibility....people have (or don't have credibility). That credibility is what lends credence to comments. Since I have never heard from that poster before...he had no credibility with me...so I add his comment to a long list of internet rumors until it can be other wise verified...

2 3/8th string spacing at bridge

2-3/8"???  Wow!  I figured it would be 2-3/16" and stopped watching the thread.  That's the wider than the LSV-11 no?  Either way, I'm officially re-intrigued...

I've seen a few posts about String Spacing at the Bridge.



I noticed the the new Forum IV is shown as 2 3/8"    == (2 6 /16")

I just measured my LS05 and it is  2 3/16"

I just measured my C38 (Larrivee Classical)  and it is 2 5/16

measured as per this thread "Official" word on Larrivee L-body string spacing

Does this sound right?

  Honestly, it does not sound right. But one can always hope.

I don't know that I've ever even played a guitar with a wider string spacing like that?  I assume it's even better for fingerstyle this way?

Maybe irrelevant to new specs, new model--but my OO-05 measures 2 3/16.

re: String Spacing at Bridge

I haven't ordered a Forum IV, so I don't know if it is appropriate for me to contact Jim Holler about this.
Maybe one of you official Forum IV customers can confirm this?

It would be a shame if someone bought a Forum IV specifically based on the 2 3/8" spacing and it turns out to be something different.

This SC-000 I just picked up has 2-3/8" spacing at the bridge, and it is huge - very nice for fingerstyle/bare fingers. But a 1-3/4 nut, to a 2-3/8" bridge - Hmmmm. The LSV-11 only had 2-1/4" at the bridge witrh a 1-13/16 nut, so this would have to be a pretty special (custom!) bridge and neck with all that taper from nut to saddle. I think it's honestly a typo, and would expect it to be 2-3/16, which is spec on all their "normal" guitars, including the Parlor, 00, LS, and OM -

Jim is going to get clarification. If its not 2-3/16 I will be very surprised.

I have a guitar with 2 3/8 spacing, it's great for fingerstyle but tough to strum.

It'll be 2 3/16 like just about every other Larrivee.  They aren't going to do custom neck & bridge at this price point.

Congrats to all who ordered the FIV.

I would have wished to have jumped in, but for now, I must be satisfied with FIII #78 and my parlor walnut special edition.

Merry Christmas and a good 2010 to all.

   One question about the F-IV's. It says medium strings are coming on these. Maybe I'm wrong, got that off Dave's site @ G.A.'s for the spruce topped OO-03's. I know, all Larrivees can handle either lights or mediums, but am assuming that this OO has mediums for increased volume. Jim is going to put a bone nut on mine, so what are some feelings here about this? Was going to send Jim a set of EJ-16's to put on when he did the nut, setting it up for those.
   I don't fingerpick, but flatpick lightly. Can pick a decent rhythm & get away with it sounding good. My SD-50 had mediums, all of my others having EJ-16's. My big, sissy fingers would get torn up from the higher gauge, the reason for my question. Will sound great when finger picked, but my fingers are used to lights. Any help or thoughts? Thanks.
   Didn't mean to get away from the spacing issue. I personally don't have a problem with wider spacing, easier for my fingers. All of us that ordered are trying to do the same thing. Not think too hard about it until they come in? Then the chatter will really pick up!
