Well I have been playing with my new RS2 and I like it.
It is very comfortable to play in my wheelchair.  It is light weight and the satin finish is nice.
The ebony binding against the rosewood fretboard also looks nice.
I also like the pick guard.  It kinda grows on you.  As with all Larrivee electrics, it sounds great.   Here are some pics.

Mike,

Love your guitar, but I find it odd that they've completely REVERSED the color scheme from what came on mine - cream pup covers and black knobs...why can't they get consistent - use black knobs with black pup covers, and cream covers with cream switch tips and gold knobs?!?!?  wacko

Here's how mine looked originally, and the changes I made...

Cyber ( Mike) that looks like gold hardware ( at least on my pute) on your RS2  I assume it was stocked that way on Special O - the black looks great!!!! And Mikeymac ( Mike) the changes you made were perfect for what came stock IMO

Yeah ... but I've thought about finding some black pickup covers and going back to black hardware...but I don't want to mess with repotting pickups if that's what I'd have to do.

Mike,

I agree.  I like what you did.  The ivoroid binding, pickup covers and knobs all match and look real nice.  As for mine - - - - well I have always been a sucker for black and gold.

Yeah its a special "O".  I think the black pickup covers, ebony binding and black pick guard contrast nicely with gold hardware and knobs.  I like the clean and classy look. The people at Larrivee did a real nice job.  My complements to them.

Nice guitar. I like the pick guard. I'm still thinking about another rs4 but with p90's or go for the rs2 p90's. I guess I can't go wrong either way.
