Amberburst Rs-4, lefty. Put a down payment on it yesterday.  Brings my grand total to three!

Hmmm, still itching for a gold top and a rootbeer burst.  maybe a gold top w/ P90's is in my future!  Already talking another one, and I haven't even paid off my new one!

At the height of my collecting frenzy I had three acoustic Larrivee guitars delivered in 1 day.

The UPS, Fedex, and USPS trucks almost ran into each other in my driveway,,,

Hey fritferret,

Don't worry all of us fortunate pickers that have already purchased RS-4's know the
severe "G.A.S." induced by purchasing one of the RS-4's!You will love the amber RS-4
as it is a "SMOKING COLOR" that really shows off the "Ridiculously Flamed" maple tops
that Matthew and his Dad hand pick for the RS-4's! drool

I am getting one of the RS-2's with the translucent Amber finish with P-90's! wacko
Haven't been able to get an ETA from Larrivee on it yet though! I am pretty sure that
MikeyMac (aka., the Rev) is going to snag one of the RS-2's that Jerry Welch at Jerry's
Lefty Guitars is getting! Jerry is getting 4/RS-2's I believe 3 with P-90's and one with
HB's! The colors will be the Amber (It's Mine),Cherry,Tobacco and a black one!

I think the REV said he might have to snag the "TOBACCO" finish!  

Are you saying that you already have 2 RS-4's? rolleye

yeah, i can't help it!  this will be the third rs-4--one in amber, one in tobacco, and the new is an amberburst.  matthew said it's not radically diff color than the amber, but it is a burst and is a little different color because the kind of paint used is diff.  the amberburst is, if i remember correctly, a water based stain.  i can't wait!  i was thinking about picking up an rs-2 at some point, but then i saw the rs-4 hogs!  i'm a fool for a carved top. drool

at this rate, that would be dangerous!   i can't remember if said this already, but i think i get the the les paul and prs guys now.  i always wondered, "why do they buy so many ofthe same model guitar?!"  once you find what fits, you're just at home.  i've finally found what i like, and i'm indulging.  especially being a lefty.  do you know how hard it is to find high quality lefty guitars with options?  usually you're stuck making a compromise of some kind.  not w/ larrivee.

i'll post pics tonight, but they'll be taken w/ my cell phone.  not bad, but not great.

Hey, I didn't know Larrivee offered that option (I thought it was only at Village Inn)! Sign me up!   

Seriously, we wanna see pics ... and Mac, I'm waiting to decide until I see Jerry's pics of te individual guitars whether I want Cherry (my first choice right now) or the Tobaccoburst. Like you, I keep nagging him and he keeps nagging Larrivee, but no news yet. Soon, I'm sure!
