I'm in rehearsals for a couple important shows coming up.

For the past couple days, at my home studio, I've been trying to decide which Larrivee electric to take.
 i thought I had it narrowed down to the eighties LS-2, which is simply a real gem to play.
 but then I picked up the newer RS-4 with ML Gen 3 pups, and once again fell over at it's absolute perfection in build, feel and tonal response.

I'm just heading back with the RS4 P90 gold top bigsby for a final decision, but really?

I'll now take 2 electrics and two acoustics, which is a bit troublesome to manage.
The acoustics are always the OM-60 TSB and the old C-09 BZ.

In the meantime I had a quick look at the Larrivee website, and to my chagrin, electric guitars are NOWHERE to be found.

For those of us who are lucky enough to have one, or a couple, we are blessed with owning undoubtedly some of the best electric guitars ever assembled.

I can only offer up a deep and solid heart felt thank-you to Matthew and all his hard work and dedication he put into the RS4 project.

For those of you who do NOT have one, GET ONE!

Good advice Kevin. I may try electrics some day. In the meantime, keep those guitars close while your out.  cop

I went with the RS4 Goldtop/p90/bigsby, and the C-09 BZ, for the gig last night.

The guest artist, a very fine accomplished musician himself, had a C-10 many years ago, but had never played (or seen) the electrics.

As a Les Paul player, he was VERY impressed with the gold top.
 Played it brilliantly, and after the show; was in awe at the detail and high workmanship, in particular the recessed vol/tone controls, inlay work, and of course the tone.....

 I love my amber burst RS-4. Best electric guitar I've ever owned and near the best I've ever played.  +1
