Matthew,

Why is Blackwood not featured on your website. I went to the wood section and it's not even listed as an option.  I know you guys make them....since I have a D-03BW  (the greatest sounded acoustic in the world by the way).  I was just curious.  I was letting a buddy of mine check out my guitar and we went to your website so he could find out more about blackwood.  The joke was kind of on my when it wasn't even there!!!  thanks...  sc morris

I love the stuff, but to be honest we haven't decided what to do with it yet.

We only purchased a few hundred sets of the stuff, and have now used them all. It's been quite popular in the -03 series, but not many people seem to want it in an 09 and 10 series. In order to make the wood cost efective on an -03, we have to sell a number of them in -09 (For example how we make both -03R's and -09's in rosewood)

I haven't put it on the website because we haven't decided to build anymore - so I didn't want to advertise it... Plus it makes your guitar a little more rare, unique, and fun to talk about  :D

PS: If we do decide to obtain more, I will add it to the website.

We've had both an LV09Blackwood and a D09Blackwood in shop both are killer guitars,sorry there both gone.The LV09 is going to get a K+K installed and the D09 will get a Martin thinline.These are great sounding guitars,I own aearly L in blackwood with the plastic binding wonderful guitar's.The satin's sold much faster then the gloss,it's hard to get some people to step foward and dare to be differant.

Check out http://www.sprucetreemusic.com/guitars.html

They have an OM-03 BW (this is where I found the OM-09K)

  thanks for the info. Matthew.  it's great that you reply so fast and keep us all informed.  very personal and professional.  i now understand why it's not on there and sort of appreciate the "rareness" of it.  it's sorta cool to have a rare guitar.  this, like i said, is the coolest guitar imo.  i searched high and low and did years of research before purchasing my first all solid wood guitar. i wanted to buy one to keep forever....i found it. i went with larrivee for several reasons.  first, it's simply the best value in all solid wood. and believe it or not, the shape of the headstock was the final selling point.  you probably don't hear that much, but it's true.  i just really love the shape of it.  i put in a k&k pure western and this thing is killer now.  thanks for the great guitars and for being here to answer a question or two.

Don't ever put it on the website.  Then people will find out about them and want them and when I have enough money that I can afford one, they'll be gone.

Either that, or keep making them.  They sound incredible.

That's right, I bought the LV-09BW from unclrob.  Getting the K&K put in tomorrow and can't wait.  I actually could have bought the -03, but really loved the sound, look, and feel of the -09.  So, you're welcome all of those who bought the -03s:)  BTW, Michael, how many LV-09BWs did you make?  We ought to get BW certificates or something with BW serial numbers, haha.
