Very cool to see those babies lined up getting ready for shipping.

I am excited for those who bought one of the F-IV's.   So close!   I can't wait to hear the sound-clips and read the glowing reviews.   Oh, and how about some youtube vids, too?

Sorry for a stupid question. blush

What should I choose among pickguard choices? No pickguard, clear or tortoise installed? If I choose not have any one install now, how can I install myself later? Is it easy or have to be by a tech or a luthier? 

Any one have pictures of a similar mahogany top guitar with these various options showing how they'd look? blush

Pickguards are easy to install. They have a self-adhesive backing. Just peel it off and place it.
(Oh, and get it right the first time.)
I ordered it w/o a pickguard but here is an L-05MT (gloss) mahogany top with tortoise shell p/g.

A while back someone "photoshopped" an 00-03 and put up images of what a satin hogtop would look like both with and w/o a pickguard, but there's just too many pages to sort through now to find the post in question.

Yes, get it right thefirst time of have a tech do it. 

Mine will not have a pickguard, that's the way I like it.

   Q, IYO, does the gloss give the PG that much of a different look? I decided not to have one put on, as I'll decide what type (black or dark TS?) when I look @ it. I love the color of a gloss HOG top. Can't wait to our tops? Tend to run a little different color than the back & sides, from what I've seen. Have a nice "shimmer" in the wood on top. The Larrivee PGs are a little funky, as far as color. Just my opinion. Lots of dots.

Looks about the same to me, Blues...
I just never got around to pulling this p/g off of the L-05MT. I would have long ago if I owned a hair dryer.
And I should own a hair dryer, as my hair is long enough to warrant one, but I keep thinking the last of it will fall out soon and then the only use I would have for such a device would be to remove pickguards.
What was the question?

My hair is really long and at nearly 43, I figure I'm gonna get to keep most of it...I never use a hair dryer  

The pickguards come off pretty easily if you do it slowly...not saying this is what you should do, this is wat I've done.  Then I usually just rub off the glue left behind.   Th FIII never had a pickguard so it wasn't an issue...the FIV will never have one either...

 drool  I'm so looking forward to having a second guitar around the house....

As others have said the pick guard has a peel and stick back.  It's real easy to install, this is what you do.

1st- Place the pickguard on the top where you want it.

2nd- Put a couple of strips of blue painters masking tape (found at any Lowe's, H/D etc.) on the lower side away from the strings holding the pickguard in place like a pair of hinges.

3rd- tilt the pickguard up and lower it back down to make sure you have the tape in the ideal position so when lowered it goes right back down in the right spot. When your sure it's hinging properly remove the backing paper from the pickguard and carefully lower it in to position, smooth from the center out and your done.

OK, I know this is going to make some of you lose sleep, email 10 times, post on the forum 20 times and call me often but here goes anyway. John Jr. called just now to tell me that he is starting to ship today! I have no idea how many or what order. To be fair I will start at the lowest number that is paid in full and work to the end. It will not be long now.

I never thought of having a chance of doing it, but I did it today!

I visited the factory and even without calling in advance, I was welcomed with a factory tour.  Our guide Jeremy is a young gentleman and very nice.  When we arrived at the rack which I recognized what the guitars were, I asked Jeremy if they were the F-IV's waiting to be shipped.  When he saw my big smiling face, he asked if I was one of the people who were waiting for them.  He was so nice to let me handle one and to take picture with.  However, I didn't know if that one was mine as the guitars were not labeled yet. I was so excited that everyone there was laughing at me.  

You can see there were only about half of them on the rack.  When I was wondering where the others had gone, Jeremy showed me the way to another room where two technicians were stringing the F-IV's.  They were just beautiful without pickguard (now that would be my choice).

We had a lot of fun and again never thought of doing this.

Here are some pix nice guitar

  Wow that was real strange... all our posts were deleted and the topic changed in this thread.
Still it is nice to see these pics.

               I guess I'll post again that it is good to see Ed stringing these up and great to hear that Jeremy is around still. They both spent a lot of time with us last year when we picked up the F-III's. Really nice folk.

  If they are stringing these up I guess that means they have the labels in them. Frederico did you see any Labels?

  I like the look of this one, I think these will gloss up quite well.

Seriously, It must be hard for the guys following this thread who didn't take part in it. I know I'd be tempted if I weren't already in.
