Mine was wonderful,standard Larrivee string balance,good volumn and tone.Only reason I don't still have it is I needed money at the time more then a guitar.If you can find one grab it you won't be disappointed.Great for all styles of play.Sounded wonderful in alt. tunings.I miss it but its good hands. crying

Hi everyone:

I joined a while ago, but this is my first login and reply. I did bring some donuts, not sure though who likes what, so.... . And what good are donuts without the coffee.... ...I hope that's enough, if not I'll have to go for another run.

I have a LV-05 that I had a 2" fretboard added by Larrivee when it was made. My previous Larrivee was also mohogany with a satin finish, but the neck was too narrow for my mitts, thus I went bigger. I prefer the glossy finish so much that I even had them do the fretboard too. Unfortunately, they shipped with a satin finish, but took it back and delivered it again the way it was ordered. I love the tone and the balance from bass to treble on the LV-05. I've been trying to get the fingers picking, but it's been hard to find practice time with two small children.

I've been reading this forum for many years and love pouring over all the threads and have learned a lot here.

Thank you for reading along, and I hope to join in soon!!!

Hi unclrob:

Thank you for the welcome!

Larrivee put a classical guitar neck on it. When I took it to the 12th Fret a while back for some servicing (where I ordered it from), one of the techs commented on how purty she is.  I want to give them a plug because Dave Wren there was great through the whole process and helped me sell my previous Larrivee for a nice price. My ONLY regret buying the new one was not having electronics put on when it was built. I know I can add it on after the fact, but I would feel safer to have Larrivee do it.

I will try to get a picture of the LV-05 and post it.

Old Beginner
Welcome to the forum.     I would ask that you start a new thread to discuss your LV-05.     This thread is for discussion of Larrivee "Forum" guitars which are special runs of forum-designed guitars.   There have been 5, soon to be 6 "forum" guitars to date.   We would all love to hear about your guitar but this is the wrong place.   
Thanks

I have been trying to purchase Larrivee OMV-10 but it is not that easy for I live in South Korea which is located in east Asia.
I found this site, while I tred to get some information through internet. I need the current price and where I can purchase it in toronto.
I have a plan to go to toronto next month and my English is not good enough to negotiate the price.
hope all of you have a great days...

$1500. The problem with vintage Larrivee guitars is, they are spectacular guitars BUT so are the newer ones. You might squeeze $1600 but it'll be tough goin to get much more. Just MHO.

If it was me I'd be keeping it, no way I'd be selling it for 16 stinkin Benjamins!!!!!!!

  Hi you all,I,m thinking about buying a larrivee RS-2 custom shop electric with p90,s.I,dlike to hear a little feedback on em from those who own them.I like an electric that delivers a good raunch and clean tone.I currently own the PRS nf3 electric and it totally rocks in every way,solid korina body[a relative of mahogany]So I,m assuming that a solid mahogany bodied RS-2 must certainly have great tone as well,just don,t know much about p90,s.

  ....

Now that you have had your morning joe and doggy nuts, I just thought I would say HI! I have only been okaying for a couple of years and am ready to move on from my beginners special (Still crazy grateful that my wife got it for me to get me started). I have a Birthday coming up and was told  that I could treat myself to an instrument as opposed to a started guitar and not end up sleeping on the couch for the next year. I posted a few threads asking for advice and I am planning on spending some time on here to learn a few things. I am drawn to the Larrivee based on the sound clips and disucssion forums, so I am kind of sold on the idea of owning my very own, just not sure which one to purchase just yet!

Cheers

Daniel

I am the very , very happy owner of a Forum I, OM-03, all mahogany. I'm still a newbie myself, but compared to anything else I've played (my 'office' Seagull, wife's old Alvarez classical, and done the Guitar Center "just looking" days) - this is hands-down the best I! Size is perfect, tone is fantastic, and well, it's just gorgeous!

A special note - I've a bum shoulder myself - the smaller size is really comfortable!

Good luck in making a decision!

    Hello Larrivites       Ain't it time for a new Forum Acoustic

12 string - not a Dread.  Discuss.
(probably not an L either as those are pretty common as well)

I don't buy pets from puppy-mill pet stores, and I don't buy Larrivees from Guitar Center.
