Well this is my first post.
I am looking for advice on what Larrivee next.
The only Larrivee I have is a Koa SE parlor. It is great.
Now I need a bigger body guitar and Have looked at 00, and OM but there is a L-03 Bubinga that has me breathing hard on Ebay.
Any thoughts on the size and the bubinga would be appreciated.
Regards, Jim

Welcome!! I don't know much about bubinga, but my first Larrivee was an OM-03.  I needed a bigger sound/more volume.  I traded the OM and now have an L-03 and an L-09.  Very wonderful and versatile guitars.  They replaced my Martin HD-28!  Best of luck with your search.

 welcome Jim

Nice have you aboard. The "L" Series in larrivee is pretty much a staple. I'm sure the majority would recommend it would complement your Parlor nicely.

Once again  welcome don't be shy around hear as a very friendly knowledgeable bunch. Please also give The FORUM RULES a quick read only takes about 2 minutes  

Looking forward to your posts

Thanks for the comments.
I have been lurking for a while.
I have been trying to add donuts like I am supposed to, but cannot get them to stick.
Anyhow, I just made an offer on the bubinga and was turned down.
Still working on it.

I've seen that bubinga L-03 on Ebay.  Don't know about the sound but notice the pickguard is on crooked.  I emailed the seller and he said it's been that way since he had it, which I inferred meant he was not the first owner (nothing wrong with that, just an observation.)

Well,
I did not see the pick guard being crooked.
That is a deal breaker for me.
Glad you said something, or I would have been disapointed.

I will continue to look for an L model with a K&K or similar.

Thanks again
