it only makes sense, right?  imo, they're already making hte finest acoustics and the finest electrics....so a hollow or semi hollow body guitar only makes sense!  i'm hoping for something like a small body 335.

I'd dig something along the lines of a thinline tele. Of course, a 335 would be nice too.

maybe start a new forum guitar thread about this?
if nothing else it would indicate interest from players/potential buyers.....

I might commit crimes and misdemeanours or do serious damage for a Larrivee 335.

[L5 or 175]I would be guilty of aiding and abetting.
c'mon; doesn't "L5" have a nice ring to it?

Maybe an ES 125 type.Take the L body size give it an archtop with F hole's and an arched back,full hollow body,offer it in both non cutaway and cutaway choice of pu's and could come with one or two pu's.I would ask for an access plate on the back so if the pots need cleaning or other control issue,my hands are getting old and pulling the controld thru the bridge pu ala Gibson or thru the F hole is really getting to be a pain.

Wide variety of ideas here (already ... in just 5-6 posts); I'd also be interested in a 335-style (without the "mickey mouse" ears/horns - chance the shape a little, like an Ibanez AS), or a smaller, 336/339 style.

The big issue with a guitar like this is ... it's going to be expensive, therefore a smaller market for them. I suspect street price on these would have to be around $2,800-3,500, depending on whether they're solid woods or laminates (like a 335 is).

But would love to have one!

After some thought and already having a nice copy of a 335, an ES-330 style would be very desirable to me. I played a 1960 Gibson ES-330 last year and it was pretty much the nicest hollow body electric that I've ever played.

An ES 125 type would be different being as it would be a thin body fully hollow body with an LV style cutaway or without.The only way to cut the exspence would be doing it as a laminate.Solid woods would be really out there in price.

There's a European manufacturer in the April issue of Guitar Player magazine with a beautiful take on semi and hollow body electrics that is both classic and modern in style.  Since there is less body style worship in this niche, it would be nice if Larrivée went a little farther out on the style/feature limb than with their other electrics.

I read that Guitar Player on a flight last week and then tossed it because I didn't want to incite too much GAS.  Hopefully I can find another issue.  I'm unable to find it via web search.

Anybody have that issue - NAMM 2013 gear guide issue?

hmm I sold a 1960 ES330 last year because it wasn't near the guitar it could/should have been.
Lack of solid piece in the middle and the P90's just made for an uncontrollable howling machine.

I guess I'm spoiled by RS4's.......

yes my vote would be a 335 type clone, with smaller outer dimensions (not by much mind you)
 ML humbuckers, RS4 headstock, and block inlays, ebony board, stop tail with bigsby option.
 please find the attached bank draft for $3,850.00

This thread has got me thinking...I own every Larrivee electric except the Larrivee Venture...and I live in the middle of Ventura County.  Go figure.
Now, onto the subject at hand...let's think out of the box....an electric bass would be cool.

The 330 I played was down in Wisconsin. Plainh blonde. Light and responsive but then again I played it in a living room at low volume so no feedback problem. Just a beautiful guitar. I like your 335 design though. That would work for me.
