Yeah, I need something different from the LS-03 which is really outstanding...all mahogany in a plain jane 00, I wouldn't ask for more....all though it would seem that my wishes from back in 2005 are coming true....I wished Larrivee would make an LS-03...and now I've got one.  I wished they would make a 00-03...and now they're making one...and an all hog one at that.  I should do all my wishing here!

There won't be a bone saddle for me if I can have it shipped directly from Vancouver like the FIII though Dan...
Denis I just saw this post for the first time (or read it correctly anyway)

       If you don't get a bone saddle from Jim, I will be sure to make you one and send it to you. If I go to Canada and pick up my 00 there I'll mail it then. But it still seems like everything about our little 00 is up in the air. It may be made in Oxnard, if Oxnard still exists in a month.  What a weird supply of information we are receiving on this one.
       It is ''strange days indeed". I think our mothers warned us "there would be days like this." Or was that just some line from an old Beatles song whistling

Jim contacted me last week and said that due to tax issues, Larrivee would be shipping all the guitars to him so I will be getting the set with bone saddle after all.

I figure all this little inconsistencies, the string spacing, overlay...etc.  will all be settled soon enough.  As long as the guitars get built, that's all I really care about.  As long as they are all mh 00's with a 1 3/4" nut...other than that, it doesn't really matter all that much.

I received an email from Jim Holler stating that the guitars will have the normal 2-3/16" string spacing at the saddle.

Thanks Randy,

I have updated the Forum IV wiki page to show the 2-3/16" string spacing at the saddle.

  Here are some pictures of Ed's 00-03 that he just received. We can be fairly certain this will be the same look as our F-IV. Except of course we will have a mahogany top also.

  Me too, Jim turned in the first order on the 16th for 24 F-IV's. We will have to wait until January 16th to know the total of both orders. Then wait about 12 weeks or so for the build.

The another few weeks for Jim to get them, set them up and it's 10 days waiting once it's shipped from Trinity...I guess I can hope it arrives by April 23, my birthday?

I'm betting nowhere near the 24 (or so?) from the December order...because there hasn't been much chatter here lately.

Folks - Forumites can't say opportunity was not provided to everyone by Danny and Trinity. Certainly cuts out any potential whining in the future by holding open as it was.  whistling
