Apologies if this has been brought up before this, but that recent picture (see below) on Larrivee's Facebook page was very interesting, showing a new thin line series for OMV and LV bodies.  I am really interested in how these sound and feel.  I want to try out a thin line LV.   drool

Larrivee has been and continues to be on a roll with so many new and interesting models.  This feels like the golden age of Larrivee.  So much cool stuff!  Oh the GAS!   cop

            Yet another Larrivee I would like to have. The list just grows. But the funds have dried up for me for now.

             Still I'd love to see and play these new models, it's just not an easy thing to do in Austin these days.

I would have to agree with this sentiment. 

Im really curious to see how these sound, I imagine that you'd have to play with the physics a bit to make this work.

I'm not too sure how a thinline guitar would be, but, I love the maple guitar with dark binding. THAT'S NICE!

Thin body acoustics always sounded weak and thin to my ears.Now arching the top and back with either F hole's or an oval soundhole would be interesting.

Larrivee has never made an arch top. He reported he spent over $100,000 developing the mandolin.  Are they similar enough to jump to a full blown guitar?  And how long for R &D?

Thin-lines (as a design category) are generally optimized for amplified playing.  The thinner body allows you to amplify the guitar louder before feedback kicks in, as a result, acoustic tone tends to suffer.


Agree the Maple with dark binding looks pretty slick.
