And a few more...

I think his assistant is putting in the pickups (according to one post here recently). Yes, the battery and battery back were in the case compartment, along with the clear pickguard (which I requested he throw in) and other stuff.

Ahem - his 'assistant' is also building many of your saddles...

Signed,
The Assistant.

Oh Snap!  I just got my e-mail confirming my shipment.  So excited!  Hopefully this is where living in Memphis will come in handy.  Fed-Ex owns this town.  They can just teleport it here right?

Another forumite from Memphis--good news.  Maybe sometime in the future we can get the FIV and my L-03 SO together and let them sing.  Congrats on what is sure to be one stunning guitar.  Enjoy!

Now I am sad that I gave up #21 so long ago   crying

Well, I was able to get the OO-03 Special Edition (Spruce/Mahogany) and for that I am truly grateful.

I can't wait to hear some of the sound files and YouTube of the Forum IV!!

I will also say, Jim did a GREAT job on the set up with the new saddle...thank you, Jim.  +1

I will lower the nut slots a little later, but the action is at a good, all purpose level. Neck is nice and straight.

I'm wondering if these are medium strings...either that, or I've just been playing too much electric lately, and have to get my hands back in shape!  crying  

I'll need to change the strings anyway to put the battery in for the Active iBeam (I tried plugging it into a tuner to tune it right away and thought, "Hey... what gives here? This thing isn't working!" Duh - then I remembered, Larrivee doesn't ship guitars with batteries installed!) So no report on the iBeam yet...

Hey Mikey, glad you got your guit, even as I am still waiting (despite the fact that I have had a FedEx tracking since Tuesday). That hogtop sure looks sweet. Danny's too.
Just an aside... you dont need to change your strings to slip that battery in there. Just loosen the strings, capo at the 9th fret, then pull the bridge pins. Change your battery, then reinsert the strings into the bridge, stick the pins in, remove the capo and tune up. Voila!
I figured if I was that extreme I wouldn't need the  sign

You should be able to open it right up, enjoy.
Roger, you are a guitar extremist, man.

By the way, folks - as one who has personally laid his fingers on all of your guitars, I can tell you this is one of the finest instruments Larrivee has ever made. You folks are stealing them, too! bigrin Unbelievable sound and looks.

Thanks for the hint ... I may get to that this afternoon! 

P.S. I never got a tracking number, unless it went in my SPAM box and I didn't notice it (but I've been checking the SPAM folder a lot lately, because of a computer update).

We are working overtime carefully plowing right through them. They will be well worth the wait.

Hey, don't plow through #27!   

Thanks for your help and assistance.  I paid the remaining balance this morning.
Thanks Jim, Kathy, and Bill (and the folk in BC  )

   I sold my snow plow and only use a snowblower and a shovel now. But not to worry they are all put away for the summer, even though it is snowing right now!

   Mikey, since you've been waiting so patiently (?), finally got yours, had so many questions about it BEFORE, maybe you could share a little more than "I got mine!"? Like how it sounds, plays, first impressions, etc.. Normal stuff. Don't give us a slap in the face, how about a hug? bigrin
   So, just Mikey & Dan have theirs. Dan, from what I can gather, is busy with his own domestic & work stuff. When he does review his, it will be a good one, full of comments & comparisons. Writes these things well.
   Mikey, I know that you're busy also with some important things. Instead of hints for the P/U, how about some sound comments, first impressions, whatever?
   Maybe Bill, alias "The Assistant", could throw in a little more for us dogs waiting for a treat? A few more words would be great? drool
   Or, maybe Jim could add some critiques or thoughts to how these sound? He's played all of them, so might have an idea?
   The pics are great & thanks for those. Mikey, they are mediums, as the other OO-03 Limiteds came with the same. I had Jim do a bone saddle & put lights on mine, as did Denis, from what he told me. If you go to lights, the neck might need that little tweak. Might not, but have to keep an eye on it.
   Thought my dog that we saved had severe issues. Everyday w/o something to gratify my need for info is like a day w/o sunshine? ohmy

  Hi everyone, we are in New Mexico and I have not even read all the recent posts. But the F-IV is a fine guitar and all my friends here who hear it or play it really like it a lot. I have already tried another set of strings and it made a change in tone, but I would not say better, just different. I would like to change them again tonite or tomorrow and try another set.
                         This is more than I expected and a very sweet guitar. I would like to change the saddle and nut to bone and add bone pins, but for now I am very pleased. nice guitar nice guitar nice guitar
