I DO!!!

Not sure I like the name, but it's not actually on the guitar (whew), so I suppose it doesn't matter.

Now, how much stuff would I have to sell to order one...

...not sure, since there are no prices shown on the electrics page...

I don't know about the term telegib but I assembled a tele with 2 humbuckers and a tele style neck nd body that is known as the Lestele for a friend.

I Want One!  I have already asked my dealer to get a price, I will let you know what they say.  The electrics are the only guitars I saw on the new site with no link to the specs...

I'm thinking I just might try to build one of those for myself.

The name of the TeleGib has been changed to the Malibu and has specifications listed on the site today...

I have a custom built chambered Lacewood top Tele with woodbuckers and a superswitch that I would sell (maybe) to have one of these...

BEWARE! old guy rant!

you want a tele? 25.5 scale and tele sound? buy one.
 putting HB pups in a tele,(fender has already done that right?) does NOT make it anything other than a tele, with HB pups. ohmy

Gibson guitars have a 24.75 scale, and their pick up design, with their body design make them Gibsons. simple.
 any one out there put tele pups in a Les Paul? whistling
 sounds just like a tele right? mad

You want a tele? buy a tele.
 you want a les Paul? buy one .

you want something BETTER than a Les Paul, grab an RS4 as soon as you can.

Just do NOT put tele pups in it ok?

Adequate stage rig, house rig, friend jam rig is really one of each.
 respect the tradition, honour the history, don't mess with the math....

OK old guy rant, over .....

Love the old guy Rant, being an old guy myself.  I just have these issues with current FMC and Gibson production guitars not being anywhere close to the same quality nor sound as the ones I had back in the mid 60's, so I just won't buy them.  I have an RS2 and an RS4 with P90's and I let my RS4 with HB's go to another lucky owner (dumb me!).  IMHO the new Malibu will fill my gap hole...

"So ... who wants a Larrivee TeleGib? / Malibu"

Would you buy a Larrivée acoustic with a bolt -on neck?

Probably not a Larrivee acoustic, but I have some killer electric guitars with bolt-on necks... neck-thru, set-neck, long-set, bolt-on, great guitars can be found in all those...

the Tele-gib is a nickname that seymour duncan gave his iconic tele that jeff beck used throughout the 70's. when we did the duncan 35th series they were copy's of that guitar. so the name stuck around here. and let me say, they are amazing. so much fun. here some pics of my tele's. both were hand made at the larrivee shop, by me. one is my take on the tele-gib, love it. the other is my favorite electric right now, my Esquire. love um both. both are custom Larrivees. Matt asked me to sand the Larrivee name of the neck because he let me build um in the shop and we don't offer these models

The new price lists on the Larrivee site do have the MSRP for the Malibu and the other new electric models.  No telling when they will be in production though...  Dan have you heard any rumors?

Is that P-92 a noiseless pickup?

You bet they are noiseless.  And they have that wonderful, Full, Round, P90 sound.  I have several sets in my electrics.  Besides the Larrivee Generation 3 P90's (which are also noiseless) they are my favorite electric guitar pickup...

Are you sure the Larrivee P-90's are noiseless? That hasn't been my experience...I'm pretty sure they're standard, P-90 / single coil pickups...
