Can someone PM me the price on this?

Again,  Maple Fretboard binding?  I'm not sure I've ever seen this on a Larrivee - and if anybody has one it would be Walkerman!!

Thanks.

Hello folks!

I've had a ton of inquiries regarding the pricing but remember to PM me if you are 'in'.  I want to make sure the tally is correct as we go along.  This number will also control how long we wait before we start taking in orders.

This is going to be a very special guitar at a special price!

As I sold my Forum IV (to another forum member), I'm planning to jump on this one. The tough decision is hog or spruce top!? My heart says hog, but my head is over-thinking it and going to spruce...

This may cure my gas for a C-09...and I may "settle for" a standard L-09 someday (much easier and cheaper to pick up used, especially as a lefty...).

Decisions...  wacko  but this will put my "Larrivee universe" back in balance with three acoustics to match my (current...) three electrics...

My apologies everyone, but I sadly have to drop out of the Forum VI guitar.
Right now I'll sell almost any guitar I have to meet some unexpected expenses... 8=[

I can't wait for this to get going as well.  Right now, I've sold my other acoustics except a classical and am really antsy!

I'm in 100% on the hog top.  Every acoustic I've had, even the Baby Taylor, I always like the mahogany tops better.  Also, I haven't seen an OO hog top cutaway... maybe there's one out there but it's rare.

I don't remember that... I'd've gone for that even with an upcharge :D  Ivoroid is very nice too.  I wonder if it will age in colour like any good plastic should.

I am glad Larrivee agreed to it on the Forum VI.  Subtle difference but I think will look quite nice.

Initially, I had proposed the Forum V have all body and neck bindings and all inlays in contrasting wood  instead of the ivoroid and abalone.  I had also proposed a flamed maple headstock overlay (to match the body) with dark wood inlays instead of the pearl.   It wasn't the preference of the majority and/ or Larrivee, I can't remember which.  Ce'st la vie, majority rules.  I'm fine with what was finally decided.

I would imagine the maple binding will age (darken to a nice amber over time), like a vintage fender neck??

These are going to be very special guitars.  I am still on the fence because I have another guitar being shipped to my house at this very moment.  Not sure I can convince the wife I need two new guitars, but I will give it a go.

My F-3 all hog is such a fantastic guitar, that I know these will be in the same league. AND, my F-3 needs a friend.
