Today the lovely brown truck delivered my early Xmas present. After several hours of waiting for it to reach room temperature I tuned it and wow!
What a lovely sounding piece of wood! I am impressed, no need to compare it to my Fender and PRSi as they are all dear to me. One thing is for sure they are all going to get some case time thats for sure!

The following is a reply from Mike Kitchen of Larrivee:

Joe,
 
Thanks for writing in.
 
Your RS-4 was built on 2/12/2009 at our Oxnard shop.
 
It has Mahogany Body & Neck, Flame Maple Top, Rosewood Fretboard, Lollar Imperial Humbuckers, Luxe Bumblebee Caps (0.14 & 0.22) Schaller Tuners, CTS 500k Pots, Switchcraft switch & jack 50's Style Wiring,  Tobacco Sunburst Finish.
 
Have a great day!
 
-Mike

I've said it before, and I'll say it again . . . I know essentially zero about electric guitars . . . but that is one gorgeous instrument!  Makes me wonder what I've been missing playing only acoustic.  Post some more pics as soon as you can, and congratulations.
