I guess I stick around because this is the only game in town and some of the participants aren't bad at all. Others are a little tough to appreciate. As long as we can give and take I suppose all's fair.

I'm not going anywhere.  I love guitars of all makes. Not a fanboy but Larrivee is definitely up there. There are guitars I'd like to own on top of larrivees...but I always find myself coming back to the Larrivee sound.

This Simon and Patrick cost me $287 shipped. They are over $650 anywhere you look. The price is back up to that amount on amazon.   It sounds really good! Came with clear tone strings which I hate. Quality of this guitar is up there. At least with a 15 series Martin. I wouldn't put it up there with an 03 or 40 series Larrivee. I will say that I don't like how Larrivee has switched to khaya (sp?) to replace Honduras mahogany. Looks like this guitar isn't sapele but is of the khaya variety.

this guitar would make an excellent and beyond campfire guitar. Beats out any 15 series Martin I've played. Totally owns any 1 or 2 series Taylor. Kind of reminds me of a Tacoma dm-10

You'll learn that, statistically, it's the NEWER Larrivee owners who tend to be fanboys - at least for a season. They fall in love with Larrivee's build and tone and feel, and often quickly buy a second and maybe a third one.
 
I am not sure how I feel about the term fanboy, or being referred to in what could be considered a pejorative manner. I have been a Larrivee enthusiast for just over two years and I have six (6) Larrivee guitars.
My collection on non-Larrivee guitars totals eleven (11).
Speaking of "statistics", what "statistics" do you cite to base your claim about NEWER Larrivee owners?
And yes, this is a comment from a newer forum member to an older forum member.

I would encourage 'homesteader' to please stay.  The larrivee forum is a great resource and everyone is welcomed.  Yes, there are a few jerks and even a fanboy or two who have their own agendas.  Most forumites know who they are and ignore them.  Indifference handles them best.  So please reconsider as this forum is worth it and welcomes new members.

I second that motion.  Homesteader don't give up on us.

Mike,

I don't mean it in a pejorative way - to me it just means *some* new Larrivee owners go gaga over them for a season and that leads to a second and sometimes third quick purchase. I used to fit this definition; I owned other guitars, but considered Larrivee the be-all and end-all. These days I still love Larrivee and their unique tonal qualities and their quality and value, but - like you - I also like (and own) other brands (2 Martins, 1 Gibson, 2 Ovations (gasp!), 2 Ibanez (some of these, including 1 Larrivee will soon be for sale).

Hope this helps!

I apologize for my comment. It was  bit harsh. I should not have let your post get to me personally, as I know that was not intended.
I also own 2 Fenders, a Yamaha, 2 Peaveys, a Diaon, 2 Epiphones, an Ovation accoustic bass, and two Martins. Six strings, 12 strings, as basses. Got a Washburn banjo too. Most get played, but not as much as the Larrivees.

No need to apologize. It's easy to be misunderstood on any 'net forum or Facebook, etc. Communication suffers from not being there in person.

Actually it is far more difficult to NOT be misunderstood.  Often why I write such long dissertations...
