One week with #27 and the love hasn't diminished.  This F-IV is a tone-monster.  So resonant it is when played anywhere on the fretboard.  So sweet.

   
The wood is great looking and the Grovers are much better than what came on the F-III.   Even moreso in the looks department.


Closeup of the fingerboard shows the stripes.  Check out the "dots" on the top wood.

This is one amazing guitar.  Right now the F-III is getting "Tonerite-ed".  I think it will be heading out of here later this month.  Too many guitars and not enough time.

This is one nice guitar!  I am still kicking myself for backing out on #21!  I am thankful that I have a 000-15SM on order with My Favorite Guitars.  Having an all-hog 12-fret Martin slot head will ease my "pain" for sure.  But, I will surely be tempted when I start seeing some of the Forum IV's being posted for sale.

I love the look of these without the pickguard. I know some of you are fans of the clear pgs and some like the tortoise but for me, the natural look of the wood is just beautiful!

Strings4Him, I'm sure the 000-15SM will be great, I've owned a 000-15S, all sapele, before and it was amazing but yes, you should kick yourself a little...the FIVis sweet.

   Still haven't decided if I'll put a pick guard on. Probably not, as I love the beautiful wood. The clear wouldn't show much, but w/o one, looks better?
   Unfortunately, due to my backwards playing method, I can't finger pick, so not even near Denis! I strum up alot @ a slight angle, so have never scratched a P.G. or put a mark on one, & that's flat picking!
   I noticed on both my F-III & F-IV the little "dots" that stand out above the surface. Tried to get one off with my fingernail, but decided it wasn't worth marring the top. What exactly are these specks? Small particles of something that stuck to the surface while drying? Don't have a clue, but makes no difference.
   Prof, yes, these are tone-monsters! Perfectly described!
   Some pics of mine. The knot you see on the side pic is matched perfectly on the other side. Nice work on the woods!

Mine's the same as yours, Denis- no p/g and Grover butterbeans.
Looks great.
I know that I still owe Danny an mp3 on this git, but I have hardly been home since I received mine.

The is an inclusion in the final coat that makes the satin finish satin.
Personally, I think the guitar looks good which ever way: Torty PG, clear PG, no PG, or Torty over Sitka like mine!

I've got a couple of soundbites at home I should upload.  They're tracks for a couple of the songs I'm doing with Alana....have to record Squish though...this weekend.

Sweet mahogany...

Finally I can lay my hands on Forum IV #10.

A beautiful guitar.  And it sound super!

I was surprise that Jim had ship it with battery installed.  Thanks Jim, I could test the I Beam immediately.
And the I-Beam works also. 

Photos will follow.

Many thanks to Danny, Jim, The Assistant and Kathy Foster at Trinity Guitar and off course the whole Larrivee Team.

Good job!

cheers,
Peter

That's interesting, Peter, because my iBeam did NOT have the battery installed; mine was in the case compartment...sounds like someone overlooked it before shipping yours.

We look forward to pics!

Thanks for asking Denis :D

Yes, indeed my dear friend... yes, indeed...
I cannot stop playing it.  But EJ16 is too hard for my soft finger  rolleye

I am sold to Mahogany tone.
Compared to my L03R with Newtone Heritage 11 string, this marvelous 00-03MH sounds mellower, not so much "twing" for the treble side.
Which is good... sehr gut!
The body size is also very comfortable for my little size body style :))

Photos will follows.  I forget to charge my Elinchrom slave unit  angry

Happy to hear it Peter.

I recently became a Mac user and bought a condenser mic (Audio Technica AT2035) and interface (Shure X2u).  This is one of my first recordings using my new gear.  It's the basic guitar track that will eventually be an Alana & Denis song.  She's got a melody and lyrics to go with it.  We'll be adding background vocals and overdubs and stuff but for now, it's just this guitar track.  Oh, and I'm using the FIV obviously.

Wow Denis... The Sunday Morn is really showing the 00-03MH Mahogany tone

OK, here are photos of my 00-03MH #10.






















and this is me playing my 00-03MH
