While playing my J-09 I am getting a strange sensation, it feels as if the neck is bruising or as if there is air trapped underneath the finish and that it is moving when I squeeze the neck. There is nothing visible  - has anyone experienced anything similar or have any wise to offer ? many thanks

Have you checked the air pressure in the neck with an inflation gauge?










has anyone experienced anything similar or have any wise to offer ? many thanks 

Sorry, I thought you were asking for advise from a wiseguy.     whistling

does it feel like this all the way up/down the neck, or is it isolated to just one location?

I am questioning my own sanity on this point - gripping other objects to see if I can recreate the sensation in my hand - but it is most pronounced in one spot behind the third fret - I'll take it to a tech............maybe he can show me where to attach the air hose

How long have you had this guitar? Is the profile noticeably different from your other Larrivee?

I haven't had it very long, it's a Canadian built guitar rather than a US so has a slightly thicker neck and narrower nut - I imagine it is something to do with my hand as that seems the most obvious explanation rather than anything wrong with the guitar which seems in very good condition - but I am unable to replicate the sensation either with another guitar or any other object..

It has to be. Wood isn't going to like dent in then return to its original shape like a sponge. I'd just give it time and if you start feeling tingling or numbness layoff playing the guitar so much.
