I may have found a solution for a pickup system.

I have written about it here.

Ended up moving the C-ducer above the bridge.

From the serial number - it's probably a sibling. Probably made in the same month.  I like the florentine cutaway. I wonder how it sounds.

 I just recently picked up their second cousin - I'm very, very happy - no bling, but there is still a resemblance -

I'll put it on other makers once I get some pics of my own.

  ST I saw your guitar in a large hardbound book from 2003 that I have ''ACOUSTIC GUITARS" The new Illustrated Encyclopedia.   It's on page 150, a small pic in the lower left. But it clearly catches the eye.

That's a beauty for sure.

I'm still trying to get my head around the interest in smaller guitars but the proportions are gorgeous.

Was there a caption with the picture? Any details or discussion of it?

 Just a general statement about the high end inlay on Larrivees etc.

ST,

Had the new LR Baggs Anthem pick up put into my OM-03 MT, not only is it amazing sound-wise, but you don't have to put any holes in that beautiful Koa wood! Played out last night and after my set the guy after me had a guitar that wasn't behaving, so the sound guy asked if he could play mine. First time I'd heard it plugged in from the audience point of view...it sounded so freaking beautiful! Sound guy was raving, the guy running the night asked if it was the guitar or the pick-up that made it sound so good...I said yes.

No idea if you are even looking for a pick-up, just thought I'd share.

Cheers,

S

I have that book at home, guess i'm gonna take a peek tonight...

;-)

edited to add...
from Acoustic Guitars, published in Canada by ThunderBay Press - at the bottom of Pg 150, under a photo that seems to be your OMV10KK;

Quote
LARRIVEE PUBLICITY
These promo's emphasise the more elaborate side of this Canadian maker's approach, and the catalogue pages here show intricate abalone inlays and a highly figured Koa top

So it looks like your guitar was a literaly the poster child... you NEED to get one of those catalogue's to throw in the case...

Hey Dermot,

I have the catalog. I'll show you next time we connect. You'll have to bring the book - okay?

Danny - thanks for the heads-up.
