Okay, okay, okay...enough talk about the cases already!  We're not gonna change anything (or make anything get built faster) by talking about it (and talking about it, and talking about it...).

Let's change the subject (for a page or two...  ):

Has anyone decided to have Jim install a pickup/electronics in your F-IV?  If so, what are you getting? Does Jim recommend anything in particular? I know a lot of us talk about these being "couch" guitars, but I wouldn't mind being able to plug in on occasion.

What's worked for you in other Larrivees? I have an old Martin piezo (with battery) in my OM-05 and I still think it sounds pretty good. Had a K&K mini-Western (no preamp) in my LV-09, and liked it, but felt that it needed some extra eq to bring out the best in it.

Others?

Was your K&K glued in or did you use the double stick tape?

While many of us are anxiously waiting for news from Larrivee about building of the guitars, may I ask for your opinion on what pick up you will install to this small bodied guitar?

I plan to play it as a cough guitar at home but also want to make it ready to play at church if needed be.  I'm choosing between K&K Pure Mini and LR Baggs iBeam Active.  I’m confident that iBeam Active is an excellent choice but is skeptical of having a battery sitting inside a small guitar. Any comments?

Yes, Mickeymac, let's change topic to pick-up as I'd asked before.  Jim suggested LB Baggs active iBeam, which he always recommends.  But i already have an iBeam/Element mix installed in L-03R.  Howeverr I have heard rave reveiws on K&K Pure Mini, wonder if this is also a good choice.

Any more people have experience in using K&K in Larrivee's?

Never used anything but the K&Ks.  I got a K&K preamp too and that makes a big difference...

I just want my 00 . Close to 4 months for me since I asked Jim about this.

I know how you feel..I sent Larrivee an email today, not sure I'll actually get a response, but I felt like I had to at least try...

   Hey Dan, congrats on your milestone! Have to look hard to find those with more. A couple of them maybe?   And I KNOW I'm not the reason you keep coming back, but all's meant well & enjoy having our fun. The smirk smiley makes me think of the pics I've seen of you. Just a happy guy, but possessing knowledge us mere mortals are not privy to? Think it's the squintin' from the Texan sun blasting down on you!!! +1

        Larri in a Marty case...

        Snug as a bug in a rug.


                      Here's one for the balcony booing section.

 OOPS... that's not a Larrivee, that's a mess  blush. But see how it is the same basic size as the F-III only deeper.

I like to dip into this thread and read every so often even though I am not getting a guitar   crying

It's very interesting, entertaining and amusing at times - keep it up cause it beats watching TV over here in the UK hands down

                                                                                        We try...
   Here are the mini tuners I ordered and put larger Grover style buttons on after making the sockets fit.
                    
            This is the look I'd like on my F-IV. Only Gotoh machines would be nicer and the buttons minis

   Dan, I assume the Koa topped guitar is your work in progress. Nice top!! What size is it? OM or OOO? Keep us posted, as I know a new thread will blossom when it is done. Look forward to it.
   Thanks for the pics. See your F-III, want to take mine right out & play it!

  It is slightly smaller than the F-III in the bouts and waist but deeper bodied. Close to a deep bodied Nick Lucas. I have two threads on this one already.

  Nothing.   I asked on the Larrivee site on Facebook and whoever is answering the questions there said they would try to find out something. I think that could be "Cherokee Guitar Co." since they are the online Larrivee reps.
            If I find out anything I'll post it. I am hoping for something definitive and not hearsay.

I'm usually pretty patient but after 4 months, obviously I'm wondering what's going on?

I hope you get us some news Danny.
