My list is fairly short too......

LV-19E - Bought from Wildwood Music with the 'Palm Tree' headstock inlay - sold
C-10E - Custom ordered through Wildwood Music with Italian Alpine spruce and Madagascan Rosewood, with flame maple binding.  One off (at the time!) Baby Dragon headstock inlay.  Fitted with L.R.Baggs iMix electronics.
LCJ-10-12E - Custom ordered through Wildwood Music with Italian Alpine spruce and East Indian Rosewood, with flame maple binding.  Has the Baby Dragon inlay on the elongated 12 string headstock, Vine-Of-Life fretboard inlay, and L.R.Baggs Anthem electronics.

Jonesy is happy with this pair of beauties in his life.
If I could have one more I would be very tempted to have an RS-4 with the block inlays and a heavily flamed top.

Jonesy - how does that 12-string sound? From the specs, I'd bet it sounds HUGE!

A cannon is probably the best description Sir  bigrin

The first strum was enough to prove that I'm going to need a larger front room! 
It's got a huge tone, and it just makes me very happy to think that it's going to get better and better the more I play it, and playing it is no chore at all.  I connected well with my C-10E but it still amazes me how I've instantly bonded with the LCJ.......it just fits me perfectly.

Where my list of Larrivee's was once extensive it is quite short now. I have a P-10 and an L-10 which both see regular use.

Well guys, my list is indeed rather humble when compared to some of your marvellous Larrivees......... drool.........however, it contains a P05,  a OM03R, and the recent addition of the new OM40.
I think I'm well set up now with a variety of woods and tones, and these lovely instruments have capabilities far beyond my ability to ever fully exploit them.
My real joy is choosing a song to finger -pick, and then playing it on the three different guitars in turn, to hear the very obvious differences they project......I also love to hear a brand new guitar slowly develop it's richness of tone with the daily playing schedule..............it's all very satisfying indeed     
I don't really need another guitar right now.......................however, it's gonna happen one day in the near future I suppose ! ............... wacko

Hi  Roscoe. Nice bunch of guitars!  Care to describe the sound of zebrano for us? I have looked at those models from Wildwood and wondered what it sounds like.  Thanks

oh man, thats a tough one. i was a larrivee dealer in the 90's and they were good guitars. now they are very very good guitars. the 00's are sweet and sometimes pretty big sounding. the L's are really big sounding and my grevllia and bubinga L bodys are huge. the om's seem to fall somewhere in between and that is the case for the zebrano, its eye candy for sure. i would like to find a maple and Australian black wood to add to the herd. would you all agree that size and shape have the most to do with tone? sorry if im off topic.

I really like my custom build P -03 Italian Spruce/Silver Oak. I think my second favorite of my parlors would have to be the all mahogany P-03. It was a deep and loud voice and just looks pretty darn sweet.

Meant to say has instead of was. iPhones can be a pain when typing sometimes.

I only have two.  A 1988 Canadian made D-10 Deluxe and a 2006 (or is it 2008? I can not remember) US made OM-60.  Love them both.  I would like to get one of the really nice parlor guitars at some point.

It's always GAS!  In truth though, I'd have to say I found my C-09 was just OK for me.  At the time it was my first rosewood guitar and having played an older L-05 for a good while I preferred the more balanced tones from spruce/mahogany.  Of course now I have an appreciation for both!
