So...somewhere (over in the acoustic forum, I think) we started a thread of all the members here who have a Larrivee electric guitar...for a time it was a very small club, indeed!

But it's starting to grow, with a few folks owning several of these.  

So this is the place to "register" - tell us which model/s you own, year, and what their finishes/pickups are...pics are optional!

I'll go first:

Larrivee RS-4; 2009; Rootbeer burst; Larrivee humbuckers; left-handed
Larrivee RS-2; 2010; Satin amber finish; Larrivee P-90s; left-handed

 gotpics?

(Also - if the mods would so desire, this would make a good sticky thread...)

I don't have a Larrivee electric but I'd love one of those RS2's with just a wrap-a-around.

Really beautiful guitars.

Hi there, I took delivery of a Goldtop RS-4 in late September, no mods, has the Larrivee humbuckers but it does have the vintage tuners! Loving this guitar, great sustain.
How do I attach a picture?

I believe you have to have ten posts in the forums before you can attach a pic ... but one of the mods can make it possible for you to do that if they so desire.

I thought I would pull this thread back up and see if anyone else wants to add their electric additions (including pics) to this thread...

...I'll go first, with my almost new 2012 Bakersfield (I did just get it back with Larrivee built pickups in it!).

Nice, SouthpawGuy. I ALMOST got a red RS-2 just like that one...just didn't work out, so later I got my satin amber one.

Here's an updated pic with black pup covers:

headsup,

Would love to hear your impressions, comments, observations, on the P-90 pups.  Regarding the P-90s vs the humbuckers, any preferences?

Yup, I got a few things to say on the matter.

First my analogy but it involves memory work and a history lesson. For those of you who remember "The Patty Duke Show" (start sing theme song now)
the RS4 humbuckers is the "Kathy" in that show, reserved, proper, respectful, and very well defined.

"Patty"  on the other hand has attitude, an edge, and a rebellious streak to her, this is more what the P90 guitar brings to the gig.

Honestly, it can be a bit unmanageable compared to the humbucker RS4, and I usually save it for the last set for that reason.

Larrivee does NOT pot it's pick ups, (dip in wax) which I will have to do with the P90's soon, sometimes they can get a bit unruly and scream a bit.
At least the early ones did, not sure if this is still the case. I have been around long enough to have once owned an original 1958 Les Paul gold top, and for my money, right now, the RS4 blows it out of the water, primarily due to the obvious care and attention Matthiew gave to these guitars, and just as importantly; the long scale.

Hope this helps. of course its just my opinion others may differ, in truth, tone is all in the fingers.....
