Hi,
I figure the Larravie fretboards are compound radius, does anyone have a rough idea what size TE basic arc is? Cutting a saddle without taking a mold would save a bunch of time. Thanks

They all have compound radius fingerboards.  According to their website, some models are 16" to 21" and some are 17" to 21".  You can find out which ones are which by clicking on the model you are interested in.  They don't show specs for the OM -1, but all the other OM models state 17" to 21".

The beauty of these guitars is, blindfolded, it's difficult to tell the difference in models. Billfolded, is a different matter.

Just take the old saddle and lay it on the blank then trace the top with a pencil, that should give you the arc you need.
