Still got to admit to be tempted by this as I know at least the next forum guitar is gonna be too big for me. However, I would have to sell my IS/M FIII in order to even put down the down payment. I'm really not sure I'm willing to do that.

Don't do it.

Well, I'm not a big fan of walnut on acoustics, or cedar tops, so I'll probably be able to avoid gassing for this one.  But here's a "bling" suggestion: have the body binding and endpin wedge done in flamed koa, to set it off a little more. Just a suggestion...it really looks good on this one:

http://www.12fret.com/new/Larrivee_Limited_Edition_L-03R-TF_LV-03R-TF_pg.html

 

And if Forum VI isn't an RS-4 (please, let's decide soon, cuz I'll need to save up for a while if we do this one!), then I'd suggest something similar to the JCL 40th Anniversary model, for those of us who missed out on those (and were any of them made in lefty?). I've definintely got gas for something more "traditional with a twist" like one of those.  And maybe there could be a couple options available: I know some folks like abalone rosettes - you can have 'em! Give me the traditional Larrivee rosette anyday!

I agree...we're getting ahead of ourselves here...at least, those of us who have a dog in this "F-IV" hunt are getting impatient for the build to begin (and pics, etc, to appear)!

I'm thinking that the F V as it's currently imagined will be a bit of a hard sell to get into production... It'll take the clout and enthusiasm of a D. Wren to bring it about!  I'm also facing a pretty dire financial situation (have finished graduate school but have no current contract) that means it will be a while before I can pony up for this "vintage" L.

Yup...it's that time folks....

On another note, I sent Larrivee an email yesterday asking about whether there would be a Facebook page documenting the build like they did for the FIII.  I'm waiting for an answer...

No kidding right...looking at the 00-03 pics and reviews is painful enough!

Good to see a few people squeaking in under the wire.
