I called Jason at Notable Guitar last week looking for a SD-03R since I know at one time he had a few. He said that Larrivee had shipped him I believe 4 and they were all gone. He wished me luck on my search. Later that day I got a call back from Jason telling me that a Fed EX. truck had just dropped off a fresh new SD-03R ! I guess he had ordered 5 but only got 4 and figured that was the last of them. Needless to say it's on it's way. I have become a big fan of the 1 13/16" nut and that's why I was looking for a SD-03 vs an SD-60. It should be a good weekend.
Thanks, Dave

It's here and it's everything and more that I thought it would be. I can't understand why Larrivee hasn't built more of them. I'm sure they could sell every last one of them.
Thanks, Dave

   Nice find. If I could play dreads this is the Larrivee model I'd like. I have several dreads and don't play any though.

   Oh and, yes I miss the 00. blush

Oh yeah, the sweet rumble of rosewood in that slope-shoulder 12-fret design!   

Congrats!

Lights or mediums, the SD will always sing.

Danny, have you played an SD? They don't feel like a dred.

I have to agree. It feels different than a Dread. especially with the 12 fret join, and yes it has that Rosewood rumble. I play alot of old time music with fiddler's and banjo, so the walking bass single notes explode out of this guitar.  I think I will now call it the SD ( SUPERDAVE) model ! LOL. OH yeah, and as a bonus it arrived in one of Larrivee's super deluxe arc top cases.
Thanks, Dave

 Haven't had the pleasure, but since my shoulder is worsening and playing my 000 is difficult, I don't think any deeper body model will be comfortable.
        Unfortunately my pain has increased a lot and playing has diminished. I hope after we are through moving and I get to rest my beat up body for several months, I can play everyday again.

       I'm glad this SD is fitting your need Dave, it sounds like a cool guitar.
Look forward to some pics.   nice guitar

Yep, for single string walking bass it's great, and if you just hold back alittle on the right hand it can double with it's 1 13/16 nut as a great fingerstyle guitar as well. Think like Doc Watson stuff. It still blows me away how Larrivee can build such great guitars in the 03 series.
Thanks, Dave

Beautiful guitar, I'm a big fan of the rosewood, the wood larrivee uses always seems to be top notch, and it is matched perfectly, congrats on the new addition.

Jason at Notable Guitars set this guitar up great for me. I asked to keep the med. gauge stings on it but lower the action if needed. It's a powerhouse when flatpicked and still fingerstyle friendly. He said he was looking into if Larrivee was going to build anymore of these.
Thanks, Dave

Hey Dave, glad you're pleased with the rosewood SD. I wonder if I'd prefer that to my walnut model. Sheesh, it never ends....

If the SD-03R had been available when I was buying, I'm sure that would have been my purchase. I tried an L for its wider frets and greater comfort, but I prefer the sound of Larrivee's (or most anyone's) dreads. But I'm "stuck" w/ my 90s D-50. It's a big guitar but I've found it to be very comfortable, and I attribute that it its neck profile, thin like the Taylors of a few years back. We hear a lot about body size and neck width in relation to the fret width, but I don't think people consider neck profile enough in discussions about comfort.
Enjoy that SD-03.
