Ok, first thing's first
 
I've been a Larrivee fan for a few years now (following in my dad's footsteps) and I figure its time I make my allegiance public.  I feel like this is probably a good place to do an introduction because this is likely where I'd post the most.

My main/favourite guitar is an RS-4 with Lollars and an amber finish.  Absolutely gorgeous guitar.  Every time I play it I'm continually amazed by its playability and tone.  It has pretty much everything I'd want in a guitar... but why stop at just one right?

I also have a mahogany D-03.  Absolute cannon of a guitar.  I got it as a gift from my father who got it second hand.  We're pretty sure the guitar got heat roasted one day because the frets popped through the binding, but it survived and produced and incredibly light and responsive guitar. great to play.

I also have an old Ibanez artist that I found under one of my grandpa's beds.  As far as i can tell its about a 74.  But its tough to tell for sure.  It has a cool look and definitely give some cool sounds

Lastly, i'm currently in the process of making a Strat style guitar.  My grandpa is a journeyman carpenter and had a piece of mahogany 15' x 2" x 20" just sitting around, so what better to do than make a guitar.  It's my first time attempting this and I'm definitely learning a lot.  It'll be interesting to see what a strat with a mahogany body sounds like.  I'm just putting finish on the body now.  I'll post some pictures later if people are interested.  Also if anyone has any tips on good strat parts let me know as I'm not all that familiar with strats.  I was planning on ordering most parts from Callaham.  If they're good enough for Larrivee, they're good enough for me

I'll end this on a good note -->

My main/favourite guitar is an RS-4 with strats.  

I can't decide if it's the RS-4 with buckers or the RS-2 with P-90's...both sound, feel and play great.

RS4 (and RS2) lover here, too. Good choice on the electric guitar. Oh ... and the acoustic! You'll have to do some pics on that Strat-ish you're making, too. That sounds like fun.

   Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.
And tulk1,  I can definitely post some pics when I get around to it/ have enough posts to put up pictures.  With the finish on the mahogany grain really pops out now.
