  Just got an email from Matt. Here it is exactly.
     "Hi Jeff,
      I spoke to Ed at the shop in Vancouver today. As I understand it they wanted to build one completely to make sure all of the bugs were worked out. As I mentioned it's been a while since a OO was Built (think he meant in Vancouver?). They completed that first one today, and while I believe they are advancing the rest now at an accelerated pace.
     In our mind it's better to be correct and a little late, than correct and on time.
     I'm not sure if my Johnny intends to do the Facebook thing again. The economy has everyone exceptionally busy and that hind of luxury may not be in the cards.
     Matt"
   Tells where we stand, why the delay, & where all's going. Everybody a little happier now?
     Jeff
 Good news Jeff.                 I'll take that first one if they will ship it

  Since you are in contact with Jim a lot, do you think you should let him know what Matt said?

   I'm really not in contact that much. Don't get many responses lately. Probably from lack of info? Will send him something letting him know. Mentioned to Matt that you'd take the first one. Don't know if he thought I was serious?

Thanks for sharing Jeff. 
I wonder what that first one looks like, something to think about, eh.

Hopefully they have the bridge plate in the right place.

I was born & raised near Chicago & went to school in Minneapolis.  Now I move to FL and my pipes burst  crying

There was exposed PVC with no wrap and it cracked like eggshells.

   And Dan, Jim's going to try & get the "test" guitar. Hope it all worked out well. Had built them in Oxnard, so maybe should have sent someone from there to help with the setup? Whatever the case, things are now progressing. Jim just told me that John is still thinking about the Facebook thing, so might happen? Matter of busy he'll be? Alot of work doing it, so a bonus if he decides to.
   I guess Dan's #2 will actually be #3. Try not to think of that, Dan. The first was just a test one, that's all. The buggies have been worked out, exterminated, or whatever. Now the real fun starts! Not rubbing it in, am I??
   Maybe, if someone has time, a pic of the first could be taken, sent to Jim, & then posted by someone? Would be really cool to see one.
   Forum-IV build? Can I still get in on it? Have I been sleeping? What's it like?
   And, my thanks to Matt for checking out the situation & getting back to me with some info. As he said, better to be late & right, than on time & not? +1

   Think all got the gist, but Matt was typing fast & meant to say "In our mind it's better to be correct and a little late, than incorrect and on time". Things should be going well now from this point. No more "what's going on". As usual, there was a reason for the delay of info & a good one. Just what most of us have come to expect from the Larrivee family. Now, can we all just get along?

Alright now.  I found this forum after coming down with a serious case of GAS.  After spending a few weeks on the forum I had progressed to a critical case of GAS.  The good news (for me) is that I have now been given the privilege of taking over the #15 slot on the Forum IV build.  Thank you PG60.  GAS cured.  Now for the onset of anticipation.
