Hi all,

Long time lurker - first time poster.

I was at NAMM last week and saw Larrivee's new (full gloss) 0-05 and 0-09 Parlors.  They were incredible (especially the flamed maple w/sunburst)!

Has anyone else seen or heard of these?  I was told by a Larrivee person they would be in stores within two months or so.

From what I understand, these are not replacing the current Parlors.  It's like taking a current one and upgrading it with 05 or 09 appointments.  Gloss finish, abalone, etc.

I believe ZSelby is right, these are additions to the Parlor line.  

Other upgrades I noticed were:  ebony tuner buttons, OM-style pickguard, full-body sunburst option (on the flamed maple version only, however), and of course, a higher price tag :D .  

I think I saw a mahogany, rosewood, koa, walnut and a flamed maple version.  As best I can remember, the list prices on the first four were approx. $1,300-$1500 while the sunburst maple version was roughly $2,400.

I'm wondering how the gloss will effect the sound. My walnut parlor would be very hard to beat in this size and would be concerned that it might detract from what I consider a perfect vintage blues sound, especially in this price range.

I've had my rosewood parlour for about a month now and I am thoroughly pleased with it. If unclrob is right I'm afraid my GAS condition may come out of remission and I'll have to start saving for a gloss one.
