...what? Now you complete the sentence.

I'll start:

I love the fact that Larrivee still makes one piece mahogany necks - and their headstocks don't have "wings" on them!

(I acknowledge that there are plenty of high-end and custom guitars that have multiple piece necks, like Olson, Lowden, etc.)

Is a multi-generational family business that is more concerned about quality of their instruments than in producing MASS quantities of instruments. They still value the fact that their name is on the headstock. Priceless.

...uses so many types of woods and designs.  I'm always interested in seeing the various Larrivee combinations and coming here and talking about them.

..........guitars make those who play them or hear them for the first time sit up and take notice.    Especially the headstock-label snobs.  whistling

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.
Back in '66, I was 13 and that was my fix.
Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

 +1  Except, now, all they can do is stare at my headstock, transfixed as if in a trance at the shear beauty of it. Then the sound of Jean's Private Reserve, Alpine Moon Spruce and East Indian Rosewood, hits their ears. As it enters their brain, it turns their preconceived notions and brainwashed neurons, to mush. It's all over for their headstock label snobbery.

Yes, that was one of my criteria (sort of ) for the "respect" button.
