Congratulations on the "again"! Love those tuner buttons.
The worst miserable cold rainy day with a Larrivee is better than the finest beautiful sunny day with no Larrivee.

Was this a custom order one-off by you, or did you find it at a Larrivee dealer?

Very nice guitar!

A 12 fret 40 ...... you are going to love it.  That wider grain on the top is JCL's favorite.  He prefers it to tight grain.  You got a winner.

That white top looks very much like European spruce, maybe Moonwood?  I have a 40 custom with that torch headstock inlay and it has a Moonwood top.  Awesome guitar...

I like that! Came close to getting one of those, but got a ooo  instead. Like that torch.  Did you get it from a dealer near you?

Hi again all :-)
Have to thank you all for sharing in my pride and joy and your wellwishes, like I mentioned before, this is a very special guitar and I can't believe my luck.
This was in fact custom ordered but does resemble the Pearl Edition except the Pearl has a Pyramid bridge on top of this one's features.
I am convinced this is na Italian/European spruce top (Moonspruce) - it is most beautiful and yes the wider grain contributes a lot to the response Walkerman.
Also nice to see new names (faces) and good to meet up here again with old pals Lynn, Caruth (still don't speak too much rugby mate  ) Strings4Him and Broken.
I'm glad you liked the Floyd-clip Lynn.
