Thanks ST.  Looking forward to exploring the forum.

This forum ordered a special mahogany top 00-03 for members. There appear to be a number of dealers with spruce top 00-03 guitars right now which some prefer anyway.

Looking forward to the all Mahogany.....it has an old school look that is unique, much as an all Koa has a unique look. And then have to see if we like the tone...should be a terrific guitar when they start coming in.

I sent Jim an email a couple of days ago asking about the build but no reply yet. 

I would love to start seeing some pics of the build and more info but right now, if I knew for sure that they'd started building them, I would be more patient...

   Jim emailed me back a couple of days ago saying that he would try to update any info he had on the F-IV's. Is really busy (has 2 helpers now), but would try to feed the land-sharks ASAP!
   Don't know how long the doughnuts will last, but a feeding frenzy there will be!
   I had inquired about the tuners & possibly having him put a set of Grover Sta-tites on, if they fit. Not sure if we're getting the same as the spruce topped Limited OO-03's out there, which were Shallers?

Check out Page 22 of the newest (March 2010) Acoustic Guitar magazine. An all mahogany Santa Cruz 12 Fret 00. nice guitar

I'm getting real itchy to find out when we'll see our first glimpse of the Forum IV.

The SC is nice but you could buy 3 F-IV's for the same amount of cash.

Please keep us posted with Jim's response to this as I too am strongly considering the tuner replacement ( have from the start) thus Jim won't have a bunch asking the same question

Well the picture in the article seems like it'd be real close to ours. I speculate from other Larrivee mahogany guitars I've seen that it won't be quite as dark.

Link is here:http://acousticguitar.com/article/default.aspx?articleid=24813

I have every confidence that our Forum -IV will be every bit as praiseworthy. Be sure to check out the lovely sound clip of it. . .

Tried to fix your link...don't know if it worked until I post...

...okay; it worked - if someone clicks on the link now in the quote box above, it will take you to the article.

The main difference I see is that the SC is a short scale...but I had to laugh that they say they're honoring the move to all mahogany guitars because of the depression...and then their price is over THREE GRAND! Hah! I'll take my Forum IV, thank you!

Nice sound clip demo of the 1929 (as they call it); I suspect the Larrivee FIV will have a little more clarity in the midrange because of the slightly longer scale length (the 1929 in the demo tended to get a little mushy or boomy with fingerstyle playing). JMHO.
