Just picked up a minty OM5MT.  I'm guessing early '90s by the serial #.  Waiting for Larrivee to confirm date. It is  unusual in that it has 1 11/16" nut and beautiful glossed ebony headstock.  Surprisingly full and loud for a smaller guitar, with crisp clear mahogany tone and great sustain.  It happily joins big brothers JCL and D10 in my Larrivee family.  bigrin

You gotta have some room to add a hogtop to the mix.

Note to dkoloff:  Keep and eye out in the forum classifieds.  Every once in a while a hogtop will show up.  My son bought an L05MT off the forum about a year ago.  And itwas available for quite a while.  The ringing clear mahogany sound is a nice contrast to EIR.  It is fun to have both!
