Hey Guys--I am Larrivee deprived at the moment but I have a custom build coming in soon of a Halcyon Nick Lucas 00 with a Lutz top and Black Walnut B/S. In case you don't know, Halcyon is a two man shop in Vancouver headed by Ed Bond, a former Larrivee employee. When Larrivee moved out of BC down to L.A., Ed opted to stay home and build his own guitars. Looking forward to getting my hands on it!

I love the look of Ed's guitars. The NL-00 model took my particular fancy with the 13th fret joint.
Congratulations on yours - please share your experience with it

It's being shipped out today! There was a delay in securing the proper case.

It has arrived and here are some updated photos!
So I opted to add a Martin style 000 pickguard:



This is a nerdy tribute to the mongrel, stripped Gibson Nick Lucas played by this guy:
