There have been a couple of threads in the past about Larrivee Custom Shop orders and and also about the "sin" of covering up good wood with paint.
I hope to address both of those topics with this post.

First, Custom Shop orders can take quite a while to fill so you have to be patient.  But when you get exactly what you want it makes all the waiting worthwhile.
Last April I placed an order for my "dream machine".   It arrived last friday.      I will post my thoughts on tone and playability in a separate thread.  But I'll share some pics of the new addition here.  Specs are:  L-05 body with Italian Spruce top, African Mahogany (Khaya) back and sides, JCL logo headstock, flamed maple binding on top bottom and fretboard, and full Sunburst.
Most beautiful guitar I've actually held in my hands. 

I'll tease with a pic of the headstock first

Beautiful guitar bro!!! I'm so happy that everything turned up perfect on your guitar build! BTW ... Tell everyone I'm sorry for not being active on our forum for a looooong time. I took a sabbatical and went kinda' off the grid for a little bit. It was a great experience LOL!!!!
