ST

As per The Rev's experience this endeavor of yours has many benefits and uses thanks again for taking it on  bowdown

I agree wholeheartedly, ST - thank you for taking on this project!  I'm still waiting to hear back on my '92 OM. It will be interesting to see if they can clear up the serial number confusion.

I will say this; it only took Yumi about a week to get back to me - I thought that was pretty good turn around time, especially with a number of us making requests right now for the SN spreadsheet.

Hi JOYCEfromNS & Mikeymac,

I'm glad you are perceiving value here. We are up to about 75 serial numbers entered.


Only one from the 70's
Two from the 80's
Something for each year in the 90's except 1995
2000's are well represented so far.

and here's the link since we've started a new page.

Larrivée Serial Numbers


PS
Does anybody know Yumi well enough to let him/her know what's going on with the serial numbers? If anyone has a direct email address for him/her - please send it through a private message to me and I'll write to explain what may be causing more requests than usual.

Hi JOYCEfromNS,

Thanks for your entries into the Larrivée Serial Numbers  page - we're up to about 90 entries there in the last month. There are actually more than that, but some of them are incomplete.

So anyway - 90 entries is not not bad for a month.

We are looking for entries from the 70's and 80's for sure. It would be great to have more across the board though.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.

Hello, gentlemen!  My father and I just purchased a couple of used Larrivee's and I will be glad to enter our information in the serial number database just as soon as we hear back from Larrivee.  My father also has a Larrivee that he purchased new last year that I will be glad to report.  Be blessed!

   Entered my '93 L-10 Custon earlier. Thought @ this point you wanted some earlier guitars. Should I add my F-III to the list? Great job on all & seems like alot of work. We all appreciate it, as I'm sure Larrivee does!

Hi Jeff,

Thank you for your kind thoughts.  I hope the folks at Larrivée don't mind the bump in interest in build dates. In the end it should make things easier.

Please add your FIII.
The more the merrier.


Thanks.

HI ST, I just added my 2004 OM-05MT and 2008 L-05 to the serial number database. Very cool.

When I got my response from LARRIVEE they only gave me completion date.  Since start date is required, I just entered my completion date there.

Just curious, why the 'no-dashes' rule on model number? Larrivee lists the numbers with dashes - why can't we enter them that way?  by the way I noticed at least one person did, and it seems to have worked.

Thanks for setting this up!

Hi David,

Thanks for adding your serial number information.

The reason for no dashes of spaces is that this reduces the number of different ways that various people can name what is essentially the same thing. For example you might write OM-05MT and someone else might write OM-05 MT and someone else might write OM05MT. By asking everyone to omit dashes and spaces, that makes that problem go away.

If we ever need to do things like sort by model number, the dashes and spaces do really funny things to sorting and grouping (e.g. OM-60 appears before an OM5) .

Also,  I just double checked and three of my Larrivées do NOT have dashes in the model number that is stamped inside. I wasn't able to get to the others easily tonight, but I think I have seen some model numbers with spaces or dashes and some without.

So ultimately this was all about making it easy to have a consistent naming convention.  I went into the data earlier tonight and did some cleanup so things would be more consistent.  

There is nothing in the form to prevent people from entering dashes and spaces in the model number,  but it just makes it difficult to deal with later if they do.

Does that make sense?

ST, there are a lot of different models out there, I assume the model number is the differentiating symbol, but some have descriptions in addition to the model number. For example: my LO512 is a 12 string and my DV09 is a dreadnaught with a cutaway. If I didn't own these I would not know what a DV09 is or a LO5 with a 12 after it. In entering the information I assumed special designations were for forum guitars or limited runs etc. I realize the work you must have put into this but if that box is to describe the model such as with Dreadaught with cutaway, or 12 string it wasn't very clear to me, but must've been to others. In any case, it's a nice record and something I think may be very useful for buyers/sellers and those of us with a curious streak.

Ha odd that Larrivee have an inconsistency in their numbering system   

Good thing they make a world class product!!!!!!!!!!

Hi ST, I was referring to the way Larrivee lists model numbers on their website, not inside the guitar.  Even Larrivee isn't consistent!

Your comments make perfect sense to me.  Thansk for this great service!

   AZ, have never seen a serial # on the label, other than a hand-written one on a limited run. And, I've owned MANY Larrivees since '92 when I was first turned on to them. Pretty unusual?
