It's just what I saw on the 00-03 ; not our order, but they should be the same.

I was looking at the pics of the 00-03 on the LA Guitar Sales site and I'm not sure but are they made in the US?  It looks like it says made in California on the label?

Yes, Denis, that label says "Made in California" and under that "United States of America."

That's what I thought it said...does this mean the FIV 00-03MT will be made in the US too?  I was under the impression that it was being made in Vancouver.

The mystery deepens....   

So who is going to the NAMM show in a couple weeks and can get the straight scoop from Jean & Sons?

Good question.
And deepening even further, I search the NAMM directory at the Anaheim Convention Center for:
Gibson: check
Godin: check
Collings: check
Fender: check
Yamaha: check
Larrivee: Search Results: No Results Found. Search Again?

Not exactly...again, based on the pics up at the LA Guitar Sales page, they look like the least expensive Gotohs, the basic enclosed tuners.

Larrivee has been using Pings for a number of years, but recently went to Schallers on the higher end models unless I'm mistaken.

Right but for some reason, the 00-03, at least according the LA Guitar Sales, has Gotohs.  I'd take any Gotohs or Schallers or Grovers...I've never had problems with Pings but if the 00-03MTs get any of the other brands I mentioned instead I will be very happy.

I see that now on their web page for the 00-03's.

LAguitar sales has been active on this forum recently, lets see if they care to comment...

  My LSV-11e had Schallers as well. So who knows what we will get or where it will be built or when.

In case anyone new sees this. There is strong doubt that the string spacing at the bridge will be 2-3/8. 2-3/16" is normal for Larrivee and is what all 00's have measured previously.
