Danny,

I can actually talk to my local dealer. I think he might be interested. We could actually aim for a July 4th deadline to give everyone a chance to get in and budget. With prior deadlines for specs. Danny, you got me thinking whistling drool bigrin

  Go for it. Start another thread and I'll support you with donuts.   But I may be needing a break myself.

I wouldn't mind being the lead, but have to do some research with my local dealer.

I am getting excited, and will need the donuts, and possibly a whack in the head as I see how frantic this can get...

I so stringly doubt a cedar/walnut L would come true, but I am in if it happens. 

I also STRONGLY suggest you talk to Jason at Notable on this one.  If he is willing to take it on, I think he deserves to handle the next forum order.  We will not be disappointed with price and service.

     This is good advice and it's always better for two to handle the forum end (kind of a good cop bad cop thing) So LawDog and James y'all may be a great team. +1

I think getting the orders would not be too much of a problem, especially as the general consensus was to wait until the F-IV had cleared production.  Why does everyone think it would be so hard to talk Larrivee into it since they have done Cedar/Walnut guitars in the past ( albeit in small numbers).

I guess it's probably the reluctance to use cedar at Larrivee.  I've seen a few cedar top Larrivees here on the forum but not many..Jean doesn't seem to like using it on his guitars.  I've heard he sells a lot of it though.

Here's the cedar/rosette look (taken from Randy's website: http://randyrick.us/guitars/ebin/ebin.htm) that would be great for the F V! 

In doing a little online research, the cedar topped Larries appear to be very well loved by their owners.  I know that Jean has said that sitka is the superior tonewood and that he no longer uses cedar.   But of course forum members are by and large multiple Larrivee owners, and a model that hearkens back to the 70's (and nineties when Larrivee was doing the cedar/walnut combo) I think would be very well received by those of us who already have sitka Larries.  From my understanding, the Forum guitars also seek extend the range of offerings, so why not a model that is imbued with nostalgia?

I really want this to happen!

LawDog or Stephen Basil,

PM me if you are interested in working with me on this F-V. We can set a timeline, and move from there. I am going to contact Jason at notable guitars.

I didn't even see any discussion on a walnut and cedar guitar. Who made this decision?

Not sure it really matters....I'd be surprised if Larrivee will do a cedar topped guitar anymore....

Good luck.

I'd love to start seeing more cedar tops on Larrivees.  I really think a 12 fret mahogany LS with a cedar top would be nice.  I hope you guys get this Forum V thing going...cedar and walnut, very nice combination!

  Jim Holler made a second order date available. The first order of 23 went in on December 16th and this order is due to close on Friday. I have now Idea how many, or even if anymore have been ordered.
              But the door is still open.

Roger that... Somehting to think about.

Looks Like Denis and Blue in VT have been here, but here is a Hogtop 00-05 with slot head to peak some interest.  If this link has been posted, my appoligies as I have been away for a month and did not reasearch to see if it had been posted.  I have heard this guy play some other stuff on a Cruz.  He plays well especially for a kid.  Nice liitle tune!

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.

Ok then.   I'm starting the rumor right here and now that the Forum VI will be a special edition of an RS-4 electric with a Koa top over mahogany.   (With 6 dots  on the 12th fret of course..    whistling  a little inside joke)
Pass the word.

Lynn, you're way too funny!
