This is a tough one for me to stay out of. I know what a great small guitar the 00's are. But when I'm otherwise selling guitars it makes no sense to buy yet another. So, I strung up my 00-10Bz today with a new set of EXP-12's and played it a little. What a great sounding small guitar it is !!!! I know the mahogany top will be great too, and different enough to justify it, but I can't. I've almost jumped on the 00-60 for sale here too, but have restrained myself.

The people that get this guitar are going to have a big smile on their faces soon.. (soon Danny, soon...  )

Apologies if what I clipped make those comments lose context.  I don't think it does, but just in case...

5 days into my spruce top 00-03, I'm still in honeymoon mode.  2 things occurred to me today...  I haven't put a capo on it yet, and I'm ready to lose the Cleartones and put a *real* set of strings on (J. Pearse ph. bronze).  It's a different voice than the parlor I love so well but not so different, that it's bad.  What a sweet little box...  and utile.

I agree with Randy...  whoever is on the list for the hog tops, is going to be smiling broad before too long.

It is likely I will call Jim next week to order the F-IV.  Still on the fence but prevailing winds are pushing me that way.

Hi, There are 23 guitars on order from the first wave. This order was placed 12/16/09. I have the order conformation from Larrivee so the ball is rolling. John has been asked to do the face book photos again. lets hope he gets time. That was fun last time around. The clues that lead us to photos of out guitars were great!.
  There are two people on the list for the first group that have asked to back out for what ever reason. I am looking for two to commit to these two guitars. That are ordered and will be part of the first wave. The numbers are #21 and #22. Let ma know if you would like to hope on one of these.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the update.  I have reflected this (23) and the info that there are two available in the Forum IV wiki page.

Hi everyone,

I got in on the first order.  I'm surprised this hasn't come up yet so let me be the first to whine "are we there yet?" 

Seriously, is there a rough ETA for when we can hope to be playing these?

What? You didn't receive yours yet?
What's your tracking number?
What do you mean Jim didn't give you a tracking number?

  I can take it. Ask away.  After all there is ONLY 23 of you so far this time. Last time it was 78. This time there is one guitar not 24 different ones. No calls about changes  Thank God! Plus you will all get the chance to meet Kathy. She is great. We have worked together for about 15 years and now she is part of the Trinity Guitars team. She is doing all the book work, accounting, some ordering, shipping and so on. She even sold a guitar the other day while I was out buying wood to build guitars with. I could not be more lucky and thankfull to have her helping me out.

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
Of course we can say that.  After all, there was not a broadcast email for this one.  At least, I do not remember receiving one.  I would guess that the vast majority of forumites do not know about the F-IV.  I found out about the F-IV and the 12/15 deadline, but not early enough to budget for it.  So, I didn't and then didn't visit again for a while.  Just now, today, I found out about the 1/15 deadline, again without sufficient time to begin budgeting for it.  Oh, well.  I'm not bitter about it, but I wanted to note that having sufficient notice matters to some folks for some larger budget items.  Maybe I'll happen upon the forum again in time to hear about the next one.
