 ohmy I noticed on page 36 (or was it 38?) of the January edition of AG magazine an add of Waverley tuners, with a list of builders using them - the usuals like Bourgeois, Martin, Collings and a host of others, amongst them Larrivee  
Has anyone seen or own/ed a Lav with those fitted standard? - could those upgrade bronze engraved 3-on-a-plate models found on trad series be Waverlies? Those are indeed awesome looking...

Larrivee have made some very "custom" instruments, mainly for the Asian market, in the past. I suspect some of those would have used Waverly tuners.

You can bet if anyone puts an expensive tuner on a guitar it would be marketed showing that as an upgrade.

Nah they are not Waverlys. They are an upgrade and mad slightly better than the standard ones without engraving.

I wondered if they used waverlies on the mandolins, but it doesn't appear so.  For some reason I thought i read that they did though?

Well, they are about as far apart in the world of guitars as you can get -

The Waverlys are on my Santa Cruz Style 1, which is kinda like a parlor, slightly larger/deeper, but short scale and just plain feels small. Amazing tone/volume though -

The Larrivee headstock is my baritone - long scale (27"), large dread type body, biggest guitar I have -

They do have alot in common though, EIR b&s, 12 fret necks, wide fingerboards, slot-heads, pyramid bridges, herringbone trims, and both absolutely gorgeous -

A shot with the 2 of them side by side would be pretty interesting - I'll see what I can do -

Is that white plastic binding on the Santa Cruz headstock?

I think it's celluloid - which is very much like a plastic -

I'll try to put up a couple pics of the 2 side by side in another thread -
