Saw these for sale when looking for something else on the Subway Guitars inventory list. No affiliation, but the price seemed pretty cheap for a Larrivee quality electric, even if they are the "pud puller" variety...

"Beautiful Canadian pud-puller's guitar. It was so well-made, I couldn't resist, even though we don't generally allow stuff like this in the store. These were a closeout: carved flame maple top, ebony fretboard. All the high-tech wanking accoutrements. Neck through. We've got 5 of these: metallic charcoal, white, red, black and rubyburst (shown). We might de-wankify them by losing the locking stuff and adding a Wilkinson bridge. These thing probably list for over $1000. $400. "

Always! The "Krammits" above the Larrivée may be interesting as well.

The gentleman from Subway guitars says he has not updated or even logged on to his webpage etc for 8 years. He went through the Larrivees he had pretty quick and doesn't intend to purchase any more. They were from a dealer when the old series was discontinued.

Right then. We've got that settled. Let's get back to important stuff like ... What kind of strap will make a left handed mandolin sound best?

I believe the hide for the strap should come from the left shoulder of the bovine...

I bought one of them. It was well used and reworked a bit. I have since sold it.

If I recall right, I was told that they were from a guitar school and used by students.
