Very nice - I like the koa binding on the neck and body much better than maple. I think my favorite details are the koa inlay around the soundhole and the maple leaf inlays on the bridge - very classy. Would love to see this on a L-body...

My internets research has found an OM-E body, so it does not seem out of the realm of possibilities that there would be an L body made as well. So far we have a D, OM... I am guessing they have made most body styles as a 150th edition?  Hopefully some Lefties as well.

No problem - I'm not in the market for something like this right now. Nice guitar though, for those up north!

Wow what a nice looking guitar. Particularly like the clean looking Koa binding particularly on the fret board, and the heel cap too.
The Maple leaf inlays are always special - especially on a Larrivee....

Jean spoke about this run a couple months ago while at the group of Seven guitar show.
 
curious of them choosing Koa binding over maple, after all the maple is our home and native tree.

This is an amazingly wonderful looking guitar.  I want one, but I only have room for one 150th Canadian Anniversary Guitar. I have a 150th anniversary guitar in the works from John McQuarrie (Northwood) due this month.  Its an 00-12 fret slot head custom made in Canada from all Canadian woods and materials to a design that traces its origins back 150 years.  John McQuarrie was great to work with in its design.  I will share more when I pick it up from John this month.
