I was told the Lancaster and Bakersfield will have the same nut width eventually.  Too bad, I think the 1-3/4" nut width on the Bakersfield is once of its nice features.

Their website says the Lancaster has 1-11/16, it could be outdated though.


I'm not entirely liking the shape of this, the square cuts on the horns haven't attracted me yet. Also, are there any maple fingerboard options? ... and pics if so!

I like it that they are standardizing there headstock.I also so agree that that the square offing of the horns looks odd.

I'm pretty sure maple boards will be an option. The Bakersfield offers both, I see no reason why the Lancaster would not.

I personally love the squared off horns because it doesn't look like another Strat clone...that would be one of my main reasons for purchasing (along with my loyalty and love of Larrivee quality).

The squared off horns look a lot like the Larrivee electrics of the '80s.

I agree that the squared horns work. Anyone get a hint of Parker Fly when they see that? JUST a hint. And I agree they also nod to the old Larrelctrics.

I say 3 cheers for trying to make a more unique shape than just a bog standard copy of the strat.  I think they could have gone farther, maybe something along the lines of Reverend bolt-on neck guitars.  Classy lines, yet not a copy of anything - kind of a Jazzmaster vibe in a way for some of them, but still unique.

http://www.reverendguitars.com/reverend/guitars/bolt_on_series.html

Actually, check out the set neck series Manta Ray for an idea for F holes that don't have to be the ubiquitous 'f' but still classy.

I also like the Reverend headstocks - they have 3 or 4 unique designs that nicely feature their 'R' logo.

The Parker Fly was created more than a full decade after the ol Larrivee Electrics and also often heard it said that these ( Larrivee) guitars look kinda like a PRS which came along a few years after the ol Larrivees started. Kramer, Charvel and Larrivee all really started this style at about the same time 1982/83.

well, I have said it before and Ill say it again, I dig it.  I like the squared off horns myself.  I wish I had the room in my stable (and money in my wallet) to grab one of these.

When I originally started this thread, I didn't mean I hadn't seen any picture pictures" as in adverts.  I meant I hadn't seen any NGD pictures, as in, are they for sale yet?

I came here hoping to see some real pictures too! Another thing I noticed as well, it only has a vol-tone. It's a shame, as I typically like to have a lot of control over the tone (I can't stand the no-tone guitars).

My biggest wish though, is to just play ANY of these electrics!
