Sorta new member. Got a couple of posts. Lurker mostly, tho'. I've been a long-time Larrivee fan. My singer has an OMV-05E that we just love. Just an amazing sounding acoustic. We get lots of "what is that guitar" and such. Love to tell them it's a Larrivee. And recently I managed to snag an absolutely beautiful RS-4 Charcoal burst. Gigged it last weekend. Got to say, it's just as lovely and wonderful as Tracy's OM. And now I get the questions about what guitar I'm playing. Well, seriously, I did anyway since I generally play Heritage guitars. And since there is a connection between Heritage and Larrivee, I feel like I'm using a cousin, instead of something totally different. If you're like we are on the HoC, pics are mandatory. So, here it is. My new to me '09 RS-4 Charcoal Burst. (pics taken in very bright sunlight, allow for color bleed)







Okay, adding this one because I just love the Larrivee headstock. Oh, and I'm in the picture!!

Welcome to the forum. Hope you'll stay awhile. If you'll read the rules you'll discover there is an initiation that requires 'noobs' to bring donuts in their first post. We're real strict on that rule (look around and see how many of us are fat!). Here, I'll start you off with a sugar coated and a cup of Joe: 

Again, welcome to the forum.

During the way back times when Heritage was first incorporated, Larrivee provided the bodies for their acoustic guitars. Larrivee built the bodies, Heritage built the necks and did the finishing. Heritage acoustics are rather rare (compared to their other models) and very well thought of by those that have them. Hence, the connection between the two companies.

Hmmm, did I mention I have an RS-2, as well? '10 model, dual HBs, white. Great guitar! Needs the fret ends dressed, but that is rather minor. Still playing it. My "guy" could take up to 6 weeks to finish the fret ends; not sure I want to be without it that long.

I don't generally go for black guitars but that one looks nasty. In a very good way.

So how are you liking the RS-4 ?

Paul, I couldn't be more pleased with it. Light in weight, not in tone. The neck pickup is not dark or muddy like so many neck HBs can be. I found myself playing most in the neck and neck/tween the other night. Only dropping to the bridge for the heavier, nastier leads. Lots of transparency and note definition in this bad boy. In contrast, the RS-2 I'm not that fond of the bridge position. Even tho' they have the same pickups (I think). It gets too bright/brittle. I have to roll the tone down to about 5. But, in the tween position it's every bit as wonderful as the RS-4. Explain that one!!

These RS models rival my favorite Prospect. And I think you know how much I love that guitar.  Hard choices.  rolleye
